grabbing NBA boxscores

I am setting up a database with basketball statistics and I am looking for someone to write a piece of software that grabs all the so called boxscores from the nba website and stores them into a database.

I already have developed a php program that does this for another basketball league. This program does the following:

1) from a given start page, it finds all the links that point to pages with game schedules

2) from the game schedules it follows all the links that lead to the boxscores of that game

3) it parses that page, grabs the available boxscore data and adds it into my database

4) it also grabs information about the players (playerid and characteristics) and stores that in the database to

The main routine looks like this:

1) grab all html links from the first page

2) for each link, check whether it is a link to a schedule, a game or a player and if so, visit the link and process it.

This program provides a basic frame that takes care of the database interaction and offers functionality to prevent the software to process the same games more then once. It is set up modular and I will attach two files that contain the "source dependend" code. Main part of the work will be to write the functions getBoxScoredata and

getPlayerData which do the actual scraping of the data from the html pages and figure out a good way to grab the different seasons from the target website, the NBA in this case.

I imagine you write some simple software that creates the url's to get the games played on every available date or every available month.

I have attached a spreadsheet which describes where you can find the data on the source pages.
