NBA Narratives vs. Numbers

Recording: NBA Narratives vs. Numbers, Mar 9, 2018

To wit: The 2017 NBA free agency period espoused more tweets than the NBA Finals. Still, team-building philosophies have hardly coalesced. This panel will explore how player stats, scouting, and interpersonal management all play into the way NBA rosters are assembled.
