+/- is the lenovo stat

BA is probably how many time the player got blocked.

so yao blocked 3 shots, while someone blocked 1 of his shots.

i thought +/- has something to do with fantasy stats or something.

They use the Lenovo stats for hockey. Like how the team is doing when a player is on the court. Many Yi bashers use the Lenovo statline to indicate how bad of a player he is.

+/- stats are another way of measuring a player's performance, opposed to common individual stats. The idea is that a player is supposed to help his team get ahead, not necessarily to rack up points or rebounds for himself. A positive +/- stat for a player means that his team's point differential over the other team was bigger when he was on the court.
