Re: The Phoenix Suns and High Variance Strategies

In my opinion it was a good strategy to fill their team with very high variance players given it doesn't pay to be mediocre. There is more uncertainty about the level of young players as they don't have a lot of NBA data and could improve. Other options might be more consistent but don't have the sa...

The Phoenix Suns and High Variance Strategies

When Wages of Wins says you can improve a team more cheaply by eliminating bad players vs. acquiring great ones, they have a very good point. This year's Suns team is a lesson in what building a team around 1/2/3 year Adjusted Plus Minus variants can do when you factor in variance, uncertainty, and ...

Re: Draft Rankings

Also Randle is, in my limited view of him, not a good defender right now, but it would be much better to ask scouts about what they think about his defensive potential a few years down the line. Seems to me like he should ideally play with a true rim-protecting big man. Based on some work I've been ...

Visualizing NBA Analytics through the Decade's Superstars

http://georgetownsportsanalysis.wordpress.com/2013/11/03/visualizing-nba-analytics-through-the-past-decades-superstars/ Not ground breaking research, but hopefully using visualizations and the familiar stories of superstar players is a good way to communicate some of the things that have been discov...

Re: So Player Tracking

Similarly to the Goldsberry "Dwight Effect" study, this is fantastic but we have to be careful how to interpret some of these ratings. For instance, "Rim protection is defined as the defender being within five feet of the basket and within five feet of the offensive player attempting the shot," whic...

Re: Favorite Basketball Analytics Books?

Mathletics by Wayne Winston is a good one for introducing things you can do with adjusted plus/minus variants.

It also might help to read Stumbling on Wins to 1) get some more ideas and 2) see how analytics arguments that don't have a good understanding of all the dynamics of the game can be flawed.

Re: Are the Heat Intentionally Leaving Danny Green Open?

Thanks for the feedback. Yea, especially towards the end of Game 5 when the Heat were going over the pick beyond the three point line, I doubt they were intentionally leaving him open. My point was more to provide some ideas on how to utilize SportVU observations with the goal being limiting the opp...
