Project Description:
I need a someone to create a spreadsheet that will automatically update NBA player game log information. The data will need to start from the 2011-2012 season and update through the upcoming season (including placeholders for rookies so that information can be grabbed once the season starts).

Additional Project Description:

For example, a sample player log can be found at:

http://www.basketball-reference.com/players/a/afflaar01/gamelog/2013/

Every active player can be found here. I can provide a list of the active player if that helps to link it? All I need is the data in the tables to be transferred to excel. If it's easier, this project can be broken down into two parts. Getting the historical data and updating for future games.

Another example from ESPN:

http://espn.go.com/nba/player/gamelog/_/id/1966/year/2013/lebron-james

ESPN uses Player ID numbers. This might might make easier to grab the data?

Please note the sample player log in the attached spreadsheet. These stats were added from the sample Basketball Ref link provided (starting from column F). I need the spreadsheet to link each player and update these stats as the season goes on. Alternatively, if someone can quickly get the historical stats (no updating) into a spreadsheet I will split this project into two parts.
