Pareto-Optimal 2019 Event Performances
By Caleb Sykes
This post is largely inspired from this 538 article talking about James Harden’s outstanding performance in multiple aspects of a 2018 NBA game. It’s also a result of my musings on the cool bubble charts that Alicia Bay made last season. When looking at multi-dimensional data such as these, it can be difficult to quickly determine the “best” performances. If you choose just a single metric to sort performances with, you may miss teams that sacrificed some scoring in that metric to score more points elsewhere. One solution to this problem is to look at the Pareto-optimal performances.
