Journal of Quantitative Analysis in Sports... new edition

+

For those interseted, an academic journal relating to sports I follow came out with a new issue. Some articles relate to basketball in particular: "Dynamic Effort, Sustainability, Myopia, and 110% Effort"... players pace themselves really well "Stratified Odds Ratios for Evaluating NBA Players Based on their Plus/Minus Statistics"... more work on Plus/Minus "Optimal Dynamic Clustering Through Relegation and Promotion: How to Design a Competitive Sports League"...a fun idea, the author suggests 'competitiveness' would be optimized if the NBA stratified into a three-tiered league "Perception ≠ Reality: Analyzing Specific Allegations of NBA Referee Bias"... Pat Riley is a whiner. "Never Too Late to Win"... author proposes an alternate draft order methodology; written for the NHL, applicable to the NBA. I'm pretty sure you can download these using guest access.
