Quality scaleEdit

Note: A B-class article should have at least one reference.

Importance scaleEdit

The criteria used for rating article importance are not meant to be an absolute or canonical view of how significant the topic is. Rather, they attempt to gauge the probability of the average reader of Wikipedia needing to look up the topic (and thus the immediate need to have a suitably well-written article on it). Thus, subjects with greater popular notability may be rated higher than topics which are arguably more "important" but which are of interest primarily to students of hagiography. Importance does not equate to quality; a featured article could rate 'mid' on importance.

Note that general notability need not be from the perspective of editor demographics; generally notable topics should be rated similarly regardless of the country or region in which they hold said notability. Thus, topics which may seem obscure to a Western audience—but which are of high notability in other places—should still be highly rated. Rate international region/country-specific articles from the prespective of someone from that region.

Top Subject is a must-have for a print encyclopedia
High Subject contributes a depth of knowledge
Mid Subject fills in more minor details
Low Subject is mainly of specialist interest.
NA Subject is a disambiguation or redirect page, residing in article space and thus does not require an importance assessment.
NBA WikiProject article importance grading scheme
Label Criteria Reader's experience Editor's experience Examples
Top General articles:
Reserved exclusively for articles that are vital to the understanding of the National Basketball Association. This should include any articles or lists on the general topic of the league, articles on current top franchises with 2+ NBA championships, and articles that cover topics that are central to the history of the league.
These will be the most likely reader entry points to the subject. If articles covering these subjects did not exist, they would need to be created. National Basketball Association, Los Angeles Lakers, NBA Playoffs, NBA Finals, NBA Draft, NBA regular season records
Biographic articles:
Reserved exclusively for biographic articles covering persons who are vital to the understanding of the National Basketball Association. This will include articles on league founders and notable franchise owners; successful, long-tenured head coaches, particularly noteworthy players, and any other personnel who are central to the league's history. Typically these are people who have contributed significantly to the NBA and are at a minimum members of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
Michael Jordan, Bill Russell, George Mikan, Phil Jackson, Red Auerbach, Jerry Buss
High General articles:
Articles that fall just short of being vital in the understanding of the subject as a whole. This should include articles on individual league seasons; articles on individual Finals, Playoffs and Playoff games, articles of team season that reaches to the NBA Finals, other franchises, defunct franchises and general articles on topics central to the league.
Most readers would quickly notice the omission of any of these articles. These articles are probably among the most actively edited articles in the project. 2006–07 NBA season, 2007 NBA Playoffs, 2007 NBA Finals, Toronto Raptors, Chicago Stags, 2003–04 Detroit Pistons season, 2011 NBA lockout
Biographic articles:
This classification should include articles on players who were very good but not the most elite. This would include Hall of Fame members who were not graded above as Top. Others include players who won an NBA Most Valuable Player Award, voted 3+ 1st-team All-NBA or selected to 5+ All-Star roster. Coaches include those who have coached 2+ NBA championships or won over 900+ NBA games.
Joe Dumars, Robert Parish, Kobe Bryant, Tony Parker, Carmelo Anthony, Ray Allen, Steve Nash, K. C. Jones, Dick Motta
Mid General articles:
The article covers a topic that has a strong but not vital role in a thorough understanding of the National Basketball Association. This group will include articles on the history of individual franchises; articles on seasons of individual teams that fall short of "High" importance criteria; articles on individual NBA drafts, All-Star games and articles on current and former arenas which were used by an NBA team for 20 years or more.
Many readers will be familiar with the topic being discussed, but a larger majority of readers may have only cursory knowledge of the overall subject. Articles at this level will cover subjects that are well known but not necessarily vital to understand the subject. List of Chicago Bulls seasons, 2008–09 Charlotte Bobcats season, 2003 NBA Draft, Madison Square Garden, Eligibility for the NBA Draft
Biographic articles:
This should include players who had careers of nine or more seasons, but did not meet the criteria for the categories above, OR any players with shorter tenure, but who made at least one All-Star roster; been named to at least one All-NBA or All-Defensive team; won one of Finals MVP, Defensive Player of the Year, Most Improved Player, Rookie of the Year or Sixth Man of the Year awards; or was a top-5 NBA Draft selection. This also includes head coaches who coached 9+ seasons, coached an NBA championship, or won NBA Coach of the Year who aren't included above.
Monta Ellis, Rajon Rondo, Tyson Chandler, Kurt Thomas, Reggie Lewis, Ernie DiGregorio, Bernie Bickerstaff, Tom Thibodeau, Paul Westhead
Low General articles:
The article is not required knowledge for a broad understanding of the topic, but may cover topics directly or indirectly related to it. This category will included articles on individual games and individual plays.
Few readers outside of the topic area may be familiar with the subject matter. It is likely that the reader does not know anything at all about the subject before reading the article. Articles at this range of importance will often delve into the minutiae of the league. NBA Development League, Rising Stars Challenge, NBA outdoor games
Biographic articles:
This should include players who made only minor contributions in the league or none at all, i.e. players with careers of eight or fewer seasons who never made All-Star or won major awards. This category will also include coaches with eight or fewer seasons and team mascots.
Jimmer Fredette, Lavoy Allen, Mike Dunlap, Damon Bailey, John Calipari, Dancing Harry
