A library that has scraped data from basketball reference
# Basketball Reference Web Scraper [Basketball Reference](http://www.basketball-reference.com) is a great site (especially for a basketball stats nut like me), and hopefully they don’t get too pissed off at me for creating this.
Basically, I created this repository as a utility for another project where I’m trying to estimate an NBA player’s productivity as it relates to daily fantasy sports. For that project, I need box score and scheduling information, which is provided by this utility.
## Getting Box Scores There are two methods that return box scores for a given date:
- BoxScoreWebScraper.return_box_scores_for_date(date) * Returns a list of Box Score objects
- BoxScoreWebScraper.return_json_encoded_box_scores_for_date(date) * Returns a JSON object representation of a list of Box Score objects
## Getting Season Schedule Information There are also two methods that return scheduling information for a given season start year (note that the NBA season generally spans two calendar years):
- SeasonScheduleWebScraper.return_schedule(season_start_year) * Returns a Schedule object
- SeasonScheduleWebScraper.return_json_encoded_schedule(season_start_year) * Returns a JSON representation of a Schedule object
## Writing to CSV I also created two utility classes (BoxScoresCsvWriter and ScheduleCsvWriter) that write box score and season data to the src/persistence/csv/box_scores and src/persistence/csv/schedules directories.
