The Player of the week is chosen based on efficiency calculation, but also including game result, importance of the game, if played recorded double-double/triple-double, etc.
The efficiency formula is a combination of various formulas used by different basketball organizations/leagues. We got involved many basketball scouts and journalists to assure it's accuracy.
The formula: 1.5*PTS + 3* (REB+AST+ST+BL-TO) — 2*BSAG — 4*PF + 3*PFRV + 4* (2FGPM+3FGPM) + 1.5*FTM — 3* (2FGPA-2FGPM) — 3* (3FGPA-3FGPM) — (FTA-FTM)
