New Grantland article with some interesting analytical ideas. Ultimately, in my opinion, using Kobe so prominently in making the points diminishes them by polarizing the reader. I was also disappointed that he didn't go farther in analyzing the idea. For example, the article states that only 20% of Kevin Love's 3-point misses are rebounded compared to 30% for Luke Ridnour, but it fails to put any real value to the difference? In other words, it shouldn't be too hard to come up with a different sort of "true 3-point percentage" that incorporates the probability of an offensive rebound being turned into points so you could truly compare the value of 3's taken by various players. Without that extra level of analysis, this ends up coming across like the "productive outs" analysis in baseball.
