Two Carmelo Anthony Related Points

Two points for discussion while I eat this sandwich: 1. The ghost of Tracy McGrady hovers over this discussion in some relevant ways. 1a) deterrence – Many feel embittered after the McGrady experience, gaining cynicism towards all misfits.  I don’t think this is wise.  While I have my own reluctances, this past experience should not [...]

Rockets Daily: Tuesday, August 31st, 2010

For a stretch of last year, Luis Scola was far and away the Houston Rockets’ best player, even if the Houston Rockets weren’t necessarily that great. This further deepened Houston’s already passionate Scola-mania, culminating in his (contextually) gigantic five-year-deal with the Rockets. What can a 30-year-old power forward who has certainly already peaked out and [...]

One of the NBA’s most prominent experts, John Hollinger, predicted that if Carmelo Anthony ends this upcoming season in a jersey other than the Nuggets’, he’ll end up in [...]

让我们来偷窥一把莫雷的数学分析世界(一) — 从火箭每场比赛的团队目标开始

 作为一个正在攻读数学分析专业的废柴, 达雷尔-莫雷不仅仅是一个我深深喜欢的NBA球队的GM, 他同时也是作为一位数学分析前辈, 被我辈不断跟随和崇拜的对象。 在姚明即将归来, 安东尼的交易传言正散布得如火如荼的时候,  也许一篇通过蛛丝马来迹探寻莫雷的数据分析特点的短文, 是一个既能让大家有一定兴趣, 又能向莫雷致敬的切入点?  – 本篇文章的目的, 是通过目前可以在公开报道上找到的一些只言片语, 来尽可能的倒推出莫雷那庞大的数据分析世界中的一些小细节。 在倒推的时候, 我们肯定无法窥见莫雷世界的全貌, 我们也肯定会犯下这样那样的错误 — 但是希望在读完这篇短文之后, 我们仍然可以对莫雷的想法和思路有一个更加清楚和统一的概念和认识。

关于阿隆布鲁克斯

作者:rahat huq        就象我过去所说的那样, 我一直坚持布鲁克斯的现实中名气大于他的实际贡献。 虽然去年他的数据(比如说, PER) 显示他取得了一定的进步, 但是他得分方面的进步更多的是来自于他的出手次数的增加。 布鲁克斯对某些类型的一流球员(比如朗多,罗斯和韦斯特布鲁克等人)显得办法不多,同时在穿针引线和传球能力方面也没有明显的改善。最令人不安的是, 小布在和姚明同时上场的时候总是会有一个巨大的问题: 这个来自Oregon 的棒小伙子缺乏有效的将球传给姚明的手段。
