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

Which do you think is the bigger issue... GMs not having the right analytics, not getting strong enough guidance from analysts or just not using whatever they have well enough because of own thoughts or scouting guidance?

Re: Next big trade possibilities

Aldridge to the Blazers? DeRozan to Jazz? Mills to Clips?

Or what to Spurs to be that relevant next season?

Re: Early 2019-2020 season commentary

Lakers, Warriors, Nuggets, Rockets, Blazers, Clippers, Thunder, Jazz...

and the race among others for a chance to get in that mix?

In the east will there be sufficient reason to care after the first 6 teams?

Re: Early 2019-2020 season commentary

Hmm.

I guess we really need to line these various RAPMs up.

Re: 2019 playoffs

Raptors win title. 5th oldest on minutes weighted average age (during regular season). Young by historical standards but still almost half a year older than the youngest in modern times. With Gasol's arrival, the effective age went up. Which contenders get older to get into the range of titlewinners...

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.

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

Could this be a factor in the Raptors defeat of the Warriors in the finals?

I am not sure how a fair and thorough analysis of physical dimensions and athletic markers of the two teams would turn out but I have subjective preconceptions about that I'd want to challenge with more information.

Re: 2019-20 team win projection contest

I haven't tried to read or follow the links to method. I'll just ask are the "chances to win" just averaged or do the weights vary by player? I'd think they'd have to be variably weighted. "I also found that a combination of player-based and team-based features works the best" I'd agree to that. Tho...

Re: 2019 Finals: Warriors - Raptors

5 of the 7 most used Warriors lineups were negative for this series. 2 moderately bad, 3 awful to horrendous. 76 lineups used in 6 games. Only 26% cumulatively positive. Not a single lineup used in every game and only 5 used in 4 or more games. 55 lineups used in just a single game. 84% of lineups w...

Re: 2019 Finals: Warriors - Raptors

Depending on how much you like what ifs, it would be possible to adjust the metric team sums for injury absences, at least for first order effects, to guess how much difference that would have made. Separate comment By BPM over 3 the Raptors big 5 performers (with Siakam not performing at that level...
