The fivethirtyeight article "We’re Predicting The Career Of Every NBA Player" from which I was comparing the projected careers of Wiggins and Payton is from Nate Silver. The carmelo algorithm is...
Nate Silver is a genius.
fivethirtyeight is owned by ESPN.
I am surprised that Wiggins does not project to greater wins above replacement on this fivethirtyeight comparison data base. As far as...
Had a few brews?
HOW IT WORKS
1. Event selection and weight
FIBA World Championships - 5
Olympic Basketball Tournaments - 5
FIBA Africa Championships - 0.2
FIBA Americas Championships - 0.8
It's FIBA. They have own way of doing things. At the bottom of the FIBA rankings page it explains "how it works." It's based on a 2 Olympic games cycle with heavy weight on the Olympics and the...
Vince can do once all night what he once did all night.
Vince lost about two feet on his vertical from last week????? Claiming a foul on Terrence Jones is weird, too.
Wow! I just reread my comment. That's a little harsh. I hope Bennett as a better night tomorrow.
If Bennett doesn't get it together soon he will be right out of the league, perhaps before the season opener. Enough with excuses. How many opportunities can he squander? If AB has banked most of...
Warriors have 17 assists to the Raptors' 2.
Edit: I had this wrong. Raptors had 9 at the half.
It's no consolation but .....

Lebron is a basketball god. He has licence to tweet just about anything (like taking on the NRA) if he so desires.
Ben Simmons is enrolled at LSU.
Did JV get any assists?
I wish King Joffery Lauvergne was a Raptor. His post footwork is great a la Scola. He had no problem getting Jordan and Griffin air borne, waiting and laying the ball in the hoop.
Mudiay was very shaky in his Nugget debut last night. 8 turnovers and 3 assists. He shot 5-18.
I vote for Melvin Ejim, hoping he makes the opening day cut. 18 Magic camp invitees from what I can tell. ESPN has him listed on the depth chart, which is encouraging.
Kerwin Roach, 6'3" Texas Longhorn point guard, has some phenomenal hops:
The jersey numbers could use the Dewey Decimal System as in #905.23 or 905.06. Book it!
My perception of Amir is quite different. The Celtics must have noticed something at $12 mil per.
I would rate Amir over Scola every day of the week and twice on Sunday. Amir is an intelligent like Scola and the better defender.
