Basketball Prospectus: Unfiltered Everything Else is Fluff.

The NBA Week Ahead at BBP

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kevin Pelton @ 4:29 am

With San Antonio’s win in Denver earlier tonight, we have officially reached the NBA’s All-Star break. Next week, things heat up with the trade deadline, meaning a big week for the association. Here’s what you can expect from Basketball Prospectus (besides the usual NCAA coverage).

– Join me Friday at Baseball Prospectus 1:00 p.m. Eastern/10:00 a.m. Pacific to chat about All-Star Weekend, the trade deadline and whatever else is on your mind right now. You know the drill: Leave your question now if you can’t make it for the chat.

– As for the actual All-Star Weekend, we’re not really planning any coverage. It’s hard to bring the trademark Prospectus analysis to All-Star (except, it should be noted, Neil Paine‘s fun look at percentages in the Three-Point Shootout as compared to how the same players have done in game situations over at the Basketball-Reference.com Blog). However, I will be on Twitter all weekend, so follow me (@kpelton) for pithy commentary on all the weekend’s big events.

– We’ll kick off next week on Monday with a back-and-forth at the break between Bradford Doolittle and I. On Tuesday, I’ll take a look at some of the most prominent players who could be moved prior to Thursday’s deadline. From there on out, while Bradford keeps an eye on other interesting topics, I’ll be focusing on daily Transaction Analysis breakdowns, Christina Kahrl-style. Naturally, we’ll have quick takes on everything that happens here on the Unfiltered blog before the fuller TA exploration.

– Everything culminates on Thursday, when Bradford and I will be joined by our Anthony Macri and Hoopdata.com‘s Tom Haberstroh for a Cover It Live chat throughout the morning/afternoon. The plan is to start chatting at about 11 a.m. Eastern (when I still may be asleep out here on the West Coast) and continue all the way through the 3 p.m. Eastern deadline, breaking down all the rumors and taking your questions not unlike we did last June for the NBA Draft.

I expect the next week to be a lot of fun for me, and I hope you will enjoy it just as much.
