Any evidence of a Twolves presence? Did they or can they send anyone? If they choose not to send anyone, why did they not send anyone?
These questions should be asked at Hoopus Night!
From Dean Oliver, Denver Nuggets director of quantitative analysis:
"Just a couple of weeks ago, I looked at teams that have stats people integrated into the decision process. (Boston, Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Oklahoma City, Portland and I may have included Orlando -- I’m not certain what they do exactly.) It was seven or eight teams."
We've always had questions here at Hoopus about the level and intensity of the franchise's interest in using statistics. Investing in several staff members who use statistics seems like a low cost way to provide the front office and coaching staff with more information. What they do with this information is up to them, but more information is, often, a good thing.
It would be disappointing to learn that Kahn or Rambis has a strong distaste for statistical analysis.
