This week we're looking at a statistic by FiveThirtyEight called CARMELO. This stat is a fun projection system used to predict a player's career arc developed by Nate Silver. I didn't do a deep dive article into how the stat is calculated since not all of the information is available, but I still took a look at everything that goes into coming up with the projections.
