Basketball Prospectus: Unfiltered Everything Else is Fluff.

Welcome Neil Paine

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kevin Pelton @ 7:35 pm

Like many of you, we at Basketball Prospectus were sad to see Sports-Reference.com announce at the start of the month it was getting out of the blogging business. In particular, our friend Neil Paine was responsible for some of the most interesting research about the NBA. That’s why we’re so pleased to announce that, while continuing to work for Sports-Reference, Neil will be bringing his basketball writing to Basketball Prospectus and contributing regularly to our site as well as our Pro Basketball Prospectus annual.

If you’re not familiar with Neil’s work on the Sports-Reference family of sites or for the New York Times‘ Off the Dribble blog, expect research into questions like how much losing an inefficient go-to scorer hurts a team and evaluation of issues like the Heat’s performance in close games or how Larry Bird compares to Dirk Nowitzki in terms of advanced statistics.

Neil’s analysis is very much in the Basketball Prospectus spirit, but will offer a slightly different perspective. We couldn’t be more excited to have him on board.
