Re: 2016 NBA Draft

Seeing how high you have RJ Hunter - I think you'll run into some real college strength of schedule and pace issues when looking at small school/ mid major stat fillers. I suggest you try Javon McCrea (2014 PF Buffalo) - see if he blows away other PFs with his diverse statistical skill set This seas...

Re: College Analytics

I was watching the Kansas Baylor game tonight and they did a short in game segment on a grad student at Baylor who had worked with the coaching staff to do some lineup work for this matchup. His name is Ryan Resch and is a poli sci grad student. The report said that he used the five previous Baylor...

Really, where is DeanO working now?

I'm glad the Kings would have had to pay him if he hadn't landed on his feet - that organization handled that & many other things poorly from my perspective.

They say that about coaches, too -- after a while, the players have heard most of what one person can say.
I'm thinking you are the right track there with how Cuban's brain might work.

Re: APBeerMetrics & Sunday Basketball

You guys are lucky I'm not coming - I'd Bill Laimbeer all your asses (alternating between hitting threes and dropping elbows).

But, I'd at least smile and help you up when I was done. I'm not a complete jerk.

Re: book recommendation - Superforecasting by Philip Tetlock

Thanks for your review Crow. From the small amount of insider stuff I know, teams do study to some extent how other organizations work/value players/trade. However, with how few trades there are, and how quickly organizations change, there isn't that much to exploit . I told a team owner pretty muc...

Re: The Top 200 Players through the ASG.

There are some players that may have a high enough win score to be included but failed to meet the MP cutoff I noticed the same thing. When I post WAR results, I include every player that played even a minute, because the nature of the metric kinda allows you to. Why not just rank the top 200, igno...

Re: ESPN Top 100

I really think it's the 2 rings - even though Ray wasn't anywhere close to THE guy when the rings were won - that gets Ray the nod over Reggie in this poll. If neither had rings - I'd be about certain Reggie would probably rank 20 spots or more ahead of Ray.

Re: Sharing code for RAPM-style player rankings

That is what I call some top notch contributing. Great job.

BTW, unless I'm confused, the 3rd name is cut off (not showing) on many 3 player lineups.

Re: RAPM request thread

One additional thought on the age adjustment in 15-year RAPM: it assumes that all types of players follow the same aging curve. This is a different and more significant issue than the aforementioned problem with injured players like Derrick Rose. What if star players, on average, have steeper aging...

Re: eWins leaders 2015-16

Gotta admit, kinda shocked to see Westbrook in front of Curry, and Drummond in front of Leonard. I know playing time is the reason, but still, surprised it was enough for the slight e82 advantage.

Those are really the only two things that hit me as a little odd.
