The Rating of Korean Basketball League Teams in 2006-2007 Season: Taking Account of Home-Court Advantage Lee, Seung-Chun; Byun, Jong-Seok;
It is widely known that the home advantage plays an important factor for determining victory or defeat in sport leagues. Thus a ranking system of sport league should take account of the home advantage as a key factor. Various statistical models are studied to rate the Korean Basketball league teams in 2006-2007 season. Among them, the model equation provided by Harville and Smith (1994) is useful for constructing two ranking systems. Both systems give quite reasonable quantifications of the team's ability and the home advantage.
