Re: Quantifying Player Development In The NBA

Why do you suggest only looking at later picks?

Re: Early 2019-2020 season commentary

Moderately happy with the Jazz's trade for Conley, think we may have gave up 1 minor asset more than was necessary. Still need at least one more rotation guy going into next season. Currently have the room MLE. Rumors they're trying to buy up into a pick into the 30's.

Re: What went wrong for Rockets

No idea what to expect from these guys at this point, reports are just all over the place.

Re: 2018-19 lineup analysis

Lineup usage may or may not be an issue for the Jazz, but it's hard to say how much in light of the talent disparity between them and the Warriors/Rockets. Also unfortunately had their fair share of injury issues in the playoffs.

Re: 2019-20 team win projection contest

Not a stat head, so can't help too much on the details, but for the 10 player bit I would say that you may be able to get away with a lower number than that (if that at all simplifies it, it's possible there's no real difference between running it with 1 or 100), in my experience you can usually exp...

Re: Early 2019-2020 season commentary

Have you read their about page links to theory and code? Or is your opinion just based on player estimates specific or in general? The article on theory is sort a podghodge of everything they could think to say. It is more broad than deep. I read through the theory page (agree it's just to sell the...

Re: NCAA->NBA ML using raw text of historical scouting reports: done!

Looks interesting for sure, I'm sure I'll think of more questions, but one first one - how do you handle players with negatives in a stat like WS? It's just negative. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Just means a player contributed net losses to his team through his performance (eg turnovers, fouls, missed shots, etc.). ...

Re: Early 2019-2020 season commentary

No idea where to ask this one, but did anyone ever figure out what was up with that Gitlab 'RAPM' dataset from the guy at UCLA? I'm seeing it cited a fair amount recently and I'm ~98% sure it's junk, it'd be nice to be able to tell people why but I know no python. https://basketball-analytics.gitlab...

Man, if only I could short the Knicks.

Pacers deserve a far better number than that.

Re: 2019 Finals: Warriors - Raptors

Yeah, I generally didn't feel great about Kerr's coaching in this one at all. Bit bummed no game 7, but a good game to close it out.

Re: Reconstructing Box Plus/Minus

Without too many details I think shooting changes are a pretty good idea, as I usually found 3pt spacers to be the most underrated archetype (though BPM handled them better than most box-score stats).
