5 Most Intriguing Players for the 2019-20 Season with Stevie Cozens and Sam Shin

September 23, 2019

This week is a departure from the stats series I've been doing. I asked two of my friends from SBC, Stevie Cozens and Sam Shin, to join me and we each go through our 5 most intriguing players for the 2019-20 season. It's a much longer conversation as we get into pretty detailed discussion on 15 different players, but it was a lot of fun to do.

CARMELO

CARMELO

September 16, 2019

This week we're looking at a statistic by FiveThirtyEight called CARMELO. This stat is a fun projection system used to predict a player's career arc developed by Nate Silver. I didn't do a deep dive article into how the stat is calculated since not all of the information is available, but I still took a look at everything that goes into coming up with the projections.
