Analytics are only as objective as what is put in the model or formula. Normally the better players will do good in advanced models but it's not always a sure bet. Ex: CP3 has a higher VORP than Kobe, Hakeem, Shaq and Dirk

Analytics is just a broad term for information. It sounds nerdy and scientific to people who generally don't use numbers to help make decisions. You can get to the point where you rely TOO MUCH on data and not instinct, behaviors and traits.

If you want a successful team you can't have one w/o the other. What's needed is basketball minded guys to understand analytics vs letting all the nerds run the show.


Fair point. They can definitely help build a team as well as a winning strategy with the players you have available and if you aren’t using them, you are just missing out on a lot of valuable information that is readily available.

To give more info on this, the blood clot was provoked. The surgery corrected the issue and got rid of the clot. Had it been unprovoked (Chris Bosh), it would be a serious issue.

There will be a 3-4 month recovery time (I think his top rib was compressing a blood vessel, which caused a clot), but he won’t need blood thinners for an extended period and this issue shouldn’t appear again. They very likely removed part of his top rib.

Praying for a healthy recovery
