Re: APBR-DraftExpress 2015 NBA Draft Project

Re: The wisdom of expert panels

As everyone here knows, defense is indeed difficult to assess and properly weigh, and not just for our panel, but for almost everyone and for most systems. And it's all the more difficult because offense and defense work so differently from each other in basketball, and because they can affect each ...

Re: The wisdom of expert panels

Interested in this discussion. The wisdom of the crowd can be phenomenal, particularly when done well, and I'm constantly looking for ways to improve our approach. The results we've seen have been eye-opening to me and we hope to extend that success. As for #NBArank, please don't assume that the pan...

Re: Well, well, well...

Great great work guys. How often will this be updated? Continuously? It's been out a week almost with no update on the stats. The plan is to update the numbers at least once a week throughout the remainder of the season and the postseason. That was the best, most practical solution to ensure that w...

Re: Well, well, well...

Jerry and Steve, separately and now together, have done fantastic work for years and I'm glad we can bring some of it to a bigger audience. This board has been a great incubator for many ideas over the years, and for that I'm grateful as well. This is Day 1 of the rollout. There will be more, with s...

This is the first time in five years the ESPN forecast has been seriously handicapped by running so early. The Harden trade, the Bynum diagnosis, the Love injury and the Nowitzki surgery all happened in September/October, weeks after our forecast. C'est la vie. Royce When was Hollinger's forecast r...
