Interview: Blackjack King And Blazers Consultant Jeff Ma Talks KP, Business, Pace And Drafting Durant Over Oden
Headshotsmall_tiny by Ben Golliver on Sep 10, 2010 11:27 AM PDT
If you don't know who Jeff Ma is, you haven't been paying attention. Ma is the mind behind the famous card-counting MIT blackjack team that won millions of dollars in Las Vegas, the team that had a book written about them and a movie made about them.
But if you didn't know that Jeff Ma has consulted with the Portland Trail Blazers regarding advanced statistics for years, you are forgiven. For whatever reason, the second most famous person with recent ties to the organization (trailing only Paul Allen, of course) has flown almost totally under the radar here in Rip City, even though he's a mainstay in the advanced stats community, co-founded Citizen Sports and is regularly mentioned on TrueHoop.
It just so happens that Ma wrote a book this summer called, The House Advantage: Playing the Odds to Win Big In Business. He discussed portions of the book, including a great exchange with Jerry West, with Henry Abbott here.
Another great exchange in the book comes when Ma meets with Kevin Pritchard, Tom Penn and the Blazers scouting staff in Portland, shortly after Pritchard was promoted to GM. Ma writes that he "realized what an important delicate meeting it would be, as I was sure the people in that room would be predisposed to doubt all that I was prepared to sell." He then describes being pelted with questions about his analysis which led to Pritchard stopping the meeting to ask, "How do we get your rankings to look more like ours?"
Click through for a transcript of our full conversation, which ran roughly 30 minutes this morning. Ma discusses Pritchard, Paul Allen, the consulting work he provided to the Blazers, the team's emphasis on pace, Pritchard's emphasis on a "big three" and, of course, who his numbers recommended drafting in 2007: Greg Oden or Kevin Durant.
"If people that use analytics to predict player performance in the NBA, using performance analytics, meaning what they did in college, and they tell you they had Oden ranked higher than Durant, they are full of crap," Ma said this morning. "There are very few statistical measures that would have rated Oden's system in college better than Durant's. Oden was injured his entire career, that one season at Ohio State. He had to shoot free throws left handed, was not efficient, didn't have a great statistical season.
"Our numbers absolutely said they should pick Durant. It wasn't even close."

I don't know if you are the Zarar or not mentioned below by Kevin Arnovitz. If you are he just made available to the entire ESPN readership this name associated with Arsenalist. Might be irrelevant and/or might be no big deal, but I thought I would just send it along to you. No reply needed if relevant or not.
I did not post any of this on the forum. I did search the name with Google and got this among other things
Zarar Siddiqi is an analyst for the University of Toronto. His work involves software design and development and he specializes in client/server and internet applications. His other IT interests include MVC frameworks, .NET, web services and SQL. He originally hails from Kashmir and currently resides in Toronto, Canada.
With Turkoglu and Chris Bosh moving on from Toronto, the Raptors have a ton of possessions to distribute this season. Zarar Siddiqi of Raptors Republic looks at how equitably those opportunities should be spread out.

link to the Arnovitz' article itself
Since there is a a poll on Raptors Republic asking "are you going to boo Bosh" maybe you could update and re-post your original article on the subject of To boo or not to boo, that is the question. As I recall that article generated a good deal of very interesting and insightful comments.
Just a thought
Just thought I would would pass this on. I don't know how reliable it is but as I have stated elsewhere one can't be too careful about computer security.
Web of Trust (WOT) now rates RaptorsRepublic.com as having "a poor reputation" based upon three submissions of "malicious content and viruses" and one submission of "Spam"
I don't know if you can read the link if you do not have it installed. The website is "Mywot.com". Mywot stands for my web of trust. WOT is a firefox addon. i don't know if it works with IE or not.
Just a question, do/did you have an account on The flagrency, any time i read something about the raptors it looks like it was you who posts.
I accidentally published an article and tried to hide it by making it password protected but didn't realize that it showed up on the front page. Sorry.
what's with the protected article?
Yes, they blow.
