King of the Court: Bill Russell and the Basketball Revolution by Aram Goudsouzian

King of the Court:
Bill Russell and the Basketball Revolution
By Aram Goudsouzian

Bill Russell was not was not the first African American to play professional basketball, but he was its first black superstar.
From the moment he stepped onto the court of the Boston Garden in 1956, Russell began to transform the sport in a fundamental way, making him, more than any of his contemporaries, the Jackie Robinson of basketball.

In King of the Court, Aram Goudsouzian provides a vivid and engrossing chronicle of the life and career of this brilliant champion and courageous racial pioneer.

Russell's leaping, wide-ranging defense altered the game's texture. His teams provided models of racial integration in the 1950s and 1960s, and, in 1966, he became the first black coach of any major professional team sport.

Yet, like no athlete before him, Russell challenged the politics of sport. Instead of displaying appreciative deference, he decried racist institutions, embraced his African roots, and challenged the nonviolent tenets of the civil rights movement.
This beautifully written book—sophisticated, nuanced, and insightful—reveals a singular individual who expressed the dreams of Martin Luther King Jr. while echoing the warnings of Malcolm X.

Book Excerpt — King of the Court: Bill Russell and the Basketball Revolution

"... Russell defended the way Picasso painted, the way Hemingway wrote: in time, he changed how people understood the craft. Until Russell, the game stayed close to the floor. No longer. Twice Bob Pettit drove past his defender for presumably easy layups. Twice Russell pounced, redirecting the star forward’s efforts toward a Boston teammate. “I think we just witnessed the birth of a star and the start of a bright new era in Celtics history,” proclaimed radio announcer Johnny Most. “I just saw Bob Pettit shaking his head in total disgust — and that is a great sight for every Celtics fan. Bob Cousy marveled at Russel’s explosive quickness, his radical disruptions of established patterns.
As Boston’s star guard walked off the Garden’s floor, he thought that the future had arrived. ..."

' What Should I Do ? ' with Lebron James

' What Should I Do ? ' with Lebron James

This isn't about what LeBron James has done, or hasn't done. This is about the difference between the expectations others may have of him versus the expectations he has of himself. What should he do? The answer is a question.

Friday Press Clippings:
LeBron James Asks, "What Should I Do?"

Basketball Statistician's Friday Press Clippings
From 20 Second Timeout
By David Friedman
Download source here: ' LeBron James Asks, "What Should I Do?" ' by David Friedman

"... In his newest TV commercial, LeBron James asks, "What should I do?" Instead of being interviewed by a real journalist who would ask serious questions, James prefers to either deal with a shill like Jim Gray or else have his message condensed into a 90 second propaganda video created by his shoe company's marketers--but here are some answers to James' rhetorical question. ..."

"... Looking forward, what James should do now is make sure that he has his priorities in order. James has boldly declared that he joined forces with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh not to win just one championship but to capture multiple titles.

That means that, based on his own publicly stated standard, any season in which the Heat do not win a championship is a failure. Championships are won by defensive-minded teams that understand the importance of selflessness. James is the Heat's best player, so he must set the tone for the Heat to be a defensive-minded, unselfish team. ..."

"... Phil Jackson's teams have won 11 of the last 20 NBA championships. Think about that for a moment--one coach has captured more than half of the titles over a span of two decades!

Jackson has been blessed to coach arguably the two greatest shooting guards in NBA history plus a host of other talented greats including Shaquille O'Neal, Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman but one of the main reasons for Jackson's unprecedented success is that he is not afraid to challenge his superstars.

Part of the way that Jackson challenges great players is by insisting that they play within what Jordan derided as an "equal opportunity" system, namely the Triangle Offense. ... "

"... While the Magic Johnson-LeBron James comparison is bogus, it is valid to compare LeBron James to Oscar Robertson. Many people may not realize that during Robertson's prime he was criticized in some quarters for dominating the ball; Robertson did not make it to the NBA Finals, let alone win a championship, until he teamed up with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (then known as Lew Alcindor) and accepted a less dominant role. ..."

"... The question for James is whether his legacy is going to consist of successfully emulating the championship substance of Jordan and Bryant or if it is going to consist of flashy highlights, regrettable soundbites and some carefully crafted commercials. ..."

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts:
About the Correct Way of Evaluating Defense

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts
What kind of information is needed in order to evaluate defense in the right manner ?

Basketball has a lot of difficult areas of quantitative information when we translate a game into statistics.

For example, categories as "allowed points - from 2, 3 and PF bonus"; "offensive rebounds allowed"; "turnovers - that aren't steals" and "good and bad personal fouls" - see our complete list of statistical analysis categories here, which are included in the eBA Basketball Statistics Creative Analysis System, are not accounted in the traditional statistical methods, specially those made at live game time.

Sobre una Correcta Evaluación de la Defensa
Photograph: Amuseline

For example, analyzing wing players we put aside blocked shots, because for a wing player, getting a block doesn't necessarily make him a good defensive player. On a wing steals are more important and give the coach evidences about who is working hard and anticipating.

Blocks shots shows the coach that the player is tall and quick and playing hard, but those factors isolated from others don't make a good defensive player. Switching, anticipating, filling lanes, and making steals are events that do.

Gathering and analyzing those categories of data will give us a sort of information, for example, about how many unguarded shots - no fast breaks plays - were taken by the opponents, and how many were allowed to us.

Basketball Registering Stats Referred Questions:
Ball hits the top of the Backboard

Basketball Registering Stats Referred Questions
In the NBA, if a ball hits the top of the backboard is still in play, meanwhile at FIBA the ball is "out".

May you clear me this situation and the differences ?

In the NBA, High School & College Rules: a ball that hits the top of the backboard is still in play: the only part of the backboard that's out of bounds is its back; both sides, top, and bottom are in play.

The edges of the board and the front side of the board are all in bounds.

Ball hits the top of the Backboard
Photograph: netsophobia.wordpress.com


If the ball passes over the top of the board, however, it is out of bounds (except in International/FIBA rules).

See in our forum the 'basketball rules' topics and the exposition "Basketball Statistical Analysis" at eBA ONLINE.

All the terms in this answer are explained widely at The Global Basketball Encyclopedia and in eBA ONLINE.

Sunday's Reflexions on Basketball Statistics:
The Future of Basketball Statistics

Basketball Statistician's Sunday's Reflexions
Conventional wisdom says linear weights are the best way to predict team performance, but is it?

Hoopsworld.com writer Kevin Pelton takes a hard look at the problems with linear weights and its dismal correlation coefficient (0.577) and rounds up some suspects for logical flaws in the method in his piece on The Future of NBA Statistics: Part One.

"Maybe every thing we track is equally important, and the weight for each statistic is one. Bam, you've got Manley Credits, or the NBA's Efficiency Rating System.

TENDEX’s relative success begat a number of different rating systems, with different values, or weights, on each major statistical category, but all of the same general form:

a*PTS+b*REB+c*AST+d*STL+e*BLK-f*TO-g*(FGA-FGM)-h*(FTA-FTM)-i*PF



The Future of Basketball StatisticsImage: Hardwood Paroxysm



Maybe an offensive rebound is worth more than a defensive rebound, because defensive rebounds are relatively so much easier to get.

Maybe a blocked shot is worth 1/3 as much as a point scored, maybe a half, maybe 2/3.

Far too much ink - and, in this modern era, too many electrons - have been wasted

Friday Press Clippings: He Stats ! He Scores !

Basketball Statistician's Friday Press Clippings
From SR Weekly News
By Tommy Craggs
Download source here: ' He Stats ! He Scores ! ' by Tommy Craggs

"... Right now, Beech's spreadsheets tell him that Dampier, touted all year as one of the NBA's most improved players, has actually been a liability. "Basically," Beech says one afternoon in January, clicking around on his computer and bringing up a page of Dampier's numbers, "the team is worse offensively when he's on the floor. It's pretty dramatic.

They're about a tenth of a point per possession worse. Field goal percentage is down a bit. Rebounding is a wash. ..."

"... The geeks have yet to find the same kind of foothold in basketball, a relatively young professional sport that hasn't generated a century's worth of statistics. Nor have they established the kind of large community that sustained baseball research for years on the margin of the sport; the Association for Professional Basketball Research wasn't even created until 1997.

Twenty years ago, Bill James famously wrote that "baseball statistics, unlike the statistics in any other area, have acquired the powers of language," a verdict that still holds. ..."

"... Partly, that's due to the nature of the game. In baseball, the most important interaction, pitcher versus hitter, is one-on-one, with solid statistics to express the outcome.

In basketball, though, a jump shot from 15 feet could be the result of a pick-and-roll, a kick-out from the post, a crisp pass from the perimeter -- a complex interaction among teammates, in other words, reduced to two points and an assist in the next day's box score. "The players are so tied together," Beech says, "that there are a lot of statistics not reflected in the personal stats." ... "

"... Similarly, on-court/off-court breaks down a team's statistics -- how it shoots, defends, rebounds, and so on -- with and without a certain player in the lineup. Both stats have their flaws, which Beech readily acknowledges (and would like to correct). A good point guard with a strong backup might look worse than an average point guard who's playing ahead of a developmental-league call-up from Fayetteville. But as rough indexes of a player's effectiveness, plus-minus and on-court/off-court are often illuminating. ..."

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts:
PGP - Player Game Percentage

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts
PGP means "Player Game Percentage" and is a technique developed by Jay Bennett and John Flueck to estimate the value of baseball player performance based on the player's contribution to victory.

A player's PGP for a game is simply the sum of all aspects of the game for each play in which the player participated.

In turn, his PGP value for a series of games is the sum of PGPs for each game divided by the number of games.

PGP - Player Game Percentage
Photograph: Friends Mavs

Among PGPs strengths is its ability to measure the true value of the player to his team since it measures the players contributions within the context of the game.

With reference to the relation of the PGP with basketball, consult the following threads in our forum: "Points Created: Player Contribution" and "Winning Percentage Calculation"

to Great Basketball Plays
By Fran Dunphy and Lawrence Hsieh

“... We have obviously some very bright kids who can do some high-level academic work. But when it comes to playing basketball, nobody cares.
Unless we do a good job, nobody's going to appreciate the kind of people that we are or the kind of students that we are. ...”

“... When your opportunity comes, it's not what you do right as much as it's what you don't do wrong. ...”

“... For the most part, I was very proud of our effort. Before the game, we talked a little bit about having tremendous respect for this program, but we couldn't let that become a fear factor. I thought our guys did a pretty good job of understanding that concept. ...”
Fran Dunphy

From one of the most highly respected college coaches in the nation, this is the only book to show how to teach winning basketball plays to kids age 14 and under.

Like no other, The Baffled Parent's Guide to Great Basketball Plays gives you a total playbook for coaching middle and junior-high schoolers through the ins and outs of on-the-court tactics.

Sunday's Reflexions on Basketball Coaching:
About Coaching Youth Basketball

Basketball Statistician's Sunday's Reflexions
Youth Basketball coach must understand that coaching youth Basketball is not like coaching adults. They need more instruction and more supervision, so patience is certainly a virtue.

When you’re coaching youth Basketball, you don’t necessarily have to win in order to succeed. Letting everyone play must be the objective. What you’ll want to do is prompt each child to do their very best.

This means that in the course of coaching youth Basketball, you will want to give everyone a opportunity to play. If you only play the best players, then children will feel excluded. In younger ages, this can lead to disturb children and parents as well. Let everyone have a opportunity when you’re coaching youth Basketball. You never know what talents you might find.

About Coaching Youth BasketballPhotograph: DC Basket Cases

You’ll want to adjust adult drills when coaching youth Basketball, but in a way that children can know and comprehend. Try to make everything a game, rather than a practice so that children stay concerned. With shorter attention units, you may want to make short drills or keep practices to a minimum.

This isn’t to say that coaching youth Basketball is a work of a baby sitter, but it is about teaching children to try their the supreme effort one can make and be filled with satisfaction when they do.

And remember the conclusion of my last Sunday´s Reflexion on basketball coaching: "... I am sometimes amused and ALWAYS disappointed by coaches who talk about running these "exotic" deployments...multiple zone presses, fast break offenses, flex offenses, triple post, trapping schemes, etc. And then they tell you they are coaching 3rd grade, or fourth grade, or even sixth grade and seventh and that they are doing these things "successfully"...".

Basketball Statistician's Digest:
September 2010 eBA sketball Statistics Case Study Conclusion

Basketball Statistics eBA Case Study
Different Situations in a Basketball Turnover... Case Study

"... Team A is with possession of the ball and...

 • case a) fails to get the ball into front court in the allotted 8 sec, or
 • case b) fails to get off a shot in the allotted 24 seconds on the shot clock, or
 • case c) fails to release in the allotted 5 seconds during a throw-in.

What is the statistical registration according to the eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System in each one of the given situations, including the type of the registration ( forced or unforced TO; good or bad foul; close, long, disputed or undisputed rebound, etc.) ... ?"

Conclusion:
eBA System Statistics Fundamentals:
The purpose of a turnover is to reflect statistically the times in which a team was given the ball and should have gotten some kind of shot but, before it could get any kind of shot, made some type of mistake that turned the ball over to the opponent.

A turnover can only be charged against the offense; that is, the team with the ball. A team becomes the team with the ball when it has control (including during free throws) or is entitled to the ball for either a throw-in or a free throw.

There will be some errors that will not result in the charging of a turnover because they did not involve the turning of the ball over to the opponent. Errors that occur at approximately the same time a team becomes entitled to the ball should not be considered turnovers. The team should have time to realize it has the ball before being charged with turnovers.

Different Situations in a Basketball Turnover
Photograph from The Star

eBA Basketball Statistical Registration:

• In (a) if the TO is caused by the opponent full-court-team pressure, charge Team A with a Team FORCED TO and credit Team B with a FORCED ST.

In all the other situations, charge the player with an individual TECHNICAL TO and credit Team B with an UNFORCED Team ST.

All those registrations in the category '8 Sec Violation'.

• in (b) if the the shooter was responsible for not seeing the clock running out, charge THAT player with an individual UNFORCED TO and credit Team B with a UNFORCED ST.

In all the other situations, generally caused by the defense pressure charge Team A with a Team FORCED TO and credit Team B with a FORCED Team ST.

All those registrations in the category '24 Sec Violation';

• in (c) if the TO is caused by the opponent team pressure, charge Team A with a Team FORCED TO and credit Team B with a FORCED ST.

In all the other situations charge the player with an individual TECHNICAL TO and credit Team B with an UNFORCED Team ST.

All those registrations in the category '5 Sec Violation'.

Commentary:
In all three cases, there is a turnover. If the statistician thinks there is one player who is primarily responsible, charge that player with an Individual Turnover. If the statistician thinks that more than one player was responsible, charge Team A with a Team Turnover.

This Case Study was presented as every 15th. day of each month, on September 13th, 2010 in our eBA Portal: were sent 324 answers, 147 partial answers and 127 totally correct, that's means including all the options, registrations and qualifications.

A Six Month Free eBA Full Member Registration
was awarded to those who submitted the correct answers !

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts:
"Up To The Line" Concept & Possessions

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts
At the NBA is employed a system by which every missed free throw results in either an individual rebound or a team rebound making that= individual rebounds + team rebounds= missed field goals + missed free throws, with the intention to match every missed shot with a rebound of some kind, providing a two=way check on the scoresheet to make sure that missed shots and rebounds are accurately accounted for.

On the contrary, with reference to this discussion, the eBA System prefers the use of the concept UP TO THE LINE.

In a previous message I stated: "... A typical formula to calculate the basketball possessions is:

Possessions=FGA Field Goals Attempted - OR Field Goals Attempted +TO Field Goals Attempted +0.4* Free Throws Attempted

In those traditional statistics systems, because two free throws do not always equal one possession (for example, in some situations one or three free throws may be awarded), they employs the multiplier 0,44 ( and sometimes 0,5 ) for free throws attempted, which is not always exact.

'Up To The Line' Concept and Possessions
Photograph: Eli Lucero for Le High Valley Live

The eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System looking for exactness, register the real number of times the team reached the line for 2 or 3 free throws with the concept UP TO THE LINE, remarking between parenthesis the number of times the last throw was MADE.

With regard the rebounds, it is referred only to possessions, that's means the eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System doesn't register a rebound in the first of two or three, or second of three free throws as related above. ..."

Therefore, it is not possible to calculate absolutely the possessions using the box score data, because, in the midst of other argues studied in the eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System, possessions-ending free throws are not recognized in the box scores (read here this thread about the .44 factor and the eBA System), some quarters bring to an end with offensive rebounds without follow-up shots, and not all rebounds are credited in box scores (read here the thread about the 'Extra Possessions at the end of the Quarters').

Basketball Registering Stats Referred Questions:
FTA & PF at Season & Playoffs

Basketball Registering Stats Referred Questions
"... Are there at the eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System Archives any statistical record of FTA and Personal Fouls inconsistencies during regular season games and playoff games ?
My real question is at what point does the deviation between fouls called on two teams become statistically outside the domain of convention ?

In like manner, is there a point where the difference with some standard measurements becomes so great that it is so statistically improbable that it is an indicator of a game refereed clearly in the favor of one team ?

This is a good topic when the media is demanding an unfairly behaviour of certain basketball officials... "

Player's Peak Age in the NBA and Europe
Photograph: refusuck.blogspot.com

Applying the information available from box scores, with the crew of 3 officials included, using 18 years quality of data, we found nothing at the eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System Archives. No individual official, as a factor in the crew of 3 model, had an important effect on the number of FTA and Personal Fouls in a game.

Some other numbers seem to link fouls called to single officials, rather than the crew of 3 officials we had to use in our model. Concentrating on single officials would make bigger the power of any analysis, for sure, but I still consider unlikely that the results would be statistically significant.

eBA Encyclopedia Statistics Terminology: Rating: Tables and Curves

eBA Encyclopedia Statistics Terminology
1. Rating is a means of classifying things in different categories.
2. A position assigned on a scale; a standing.
3. A classification according to specialty or proficiency.
4. A specified performance limit, as of capacity, range, or operational capability: the power rating of a light fixture.

In online communities, rating means a reputation system, it is a type of collaborative filtering algorithm which attempts to determine ratings for a collection of entities, given a collection of opinions that those entities hold about each other.

This is similar to a recommender system, but with the purpose of entities recommending each other, rather than some external set of entities (such as books, movies, or music).

Sunday's Reflexions on Basketball Statistics:
Quantitative Sports Analysis

Basketball Statistician's Sunday's Reflexions
I will say that the improving of quantitative sports analysis in general - is becoming even more and more important.

The field is broad open, developing at a fast pace.
But in order to be a rightfully effective statistician, one must not totally ignore the qualitative principles and values.

Should we leave qualitative representations to the journalists and sports writers ? Can phenomenological and constructionist viewpoints get in the way of objectivity ?

Perhaps, but I think we all agree that unless statistics & statisticians are god, they cannot look at anything with 100 percent objectivity and that qualitative principles and values can add more valuable insights and variables from perspectives not taken into account, and supplement quantitative assumption based on an observation.

Quantitative Sports AnalysisPhotograph: LA Times

And a final reflexion on basketball coaching for this Sunday morning... I am sometimes amused and ALWAYS disappointed by coaches who talk about running these "exotic" deployments...multiple zone presses, fast break offenses, flex offenses, triple post, trapping schemes, etc. And then they tell you they are coaching 3rd grade, or fourth grade, or even sixth grade and seventh and that they are doing these things "successfully"....

Friday Press Clippings:
The Effect Touches, Post Touches, and Dribbles
Have on Offense for Men’s Division I Basketball

Basketball Statistician's Friday Press Clippings
From Brigham Young University
By Kim T. Jackson
Download source here: ' The Effect Touches, Post Touches, and Dribbles Have on
Offense for Men’s Division I Basketball ' by Kim T. Jackson

"... A common way coaches have traditionally prepared their team for upcoming opponents is through the use of video. Coaches will watch game film of their own team, trying to look for deficiencies they can improve on during practice. They also watch game film on their opponents, identifying their strengths, weaknesses, and tendencies so that they can prepare a game plan that will give their team the best opportunity to win.

With modern technologies such as video editing programs, DVD burners, and internet exchange systems, watching film has never been easier or more efficient. However, because basketball schedules typically require teams to play two to four games per week there is a limited amount of time a coach can devote to watching game film.

This has left coaches looking for additional tools to evaluate their team and opponents in a quick and efficient manner. ..."

"... Nixon repeatedly marveled at how simple and basic the practice was but I think that this deceptive simplicity is actually the touchstone of Jackson's coaching genius (as it was for John Wooden, Red Auerbach and Vince Lombardi); coaching is not about making things complex and it is not about the vaunted "in game adjustments" with which some media members are so obsessed: coaching is about preparing players in practice to deal with the most likely scenarios that will happen during games and coaching is about making sure that players are well schooled in the fundamentals. ..."

"... basketball statistics at the end of a game can be greatly influenced by the pace of play. In baseball, a game could take two hours or four hours to complete and it does not impact the statistical aspect of the game because there are equal outs for each team in every game and thus equal opportunities at success or failure (Oliver, 2004). In basketball this is not the case.

For example, Team A might allow on average 75 points per game and Team B might allow 80 points per game. The normal observer might assume from the following information that Team A is a better defensive team than Team B because they allow five fewer points a game. However, when you look at a team’s pace of play one might come to a different conclusion.

In this same example Team A plays a slow-paced game and only averages 75 defensive possessions per game, while Team B plays a high-paced game and averages 100 defensive possessions per game.

With this information you would conclude that Team B is the better defensive team because even though they allow more points per game than Team A, they do so on much more opportunities. Similar to points allowed per game, pace of play will impact all statistics found in box scores making it difficult to compare the information from game to game and team to team. ... "

"... Efficiency analysis can be done on all aspects of the game both offensively and defensively. This information can then be used by coaches to compare their team against all other teams in the league. Knowing how one’s team compares to the rest of the league can reveal strengths and weaknesses and be valuable information when planning practices or setting team goals. ..."

"... While parameters have been established to ensure that the data collected is reliable and accurate, there are some levels of subjectivity required by the researcher, namely determining when a player is within scoring position, determining when a player is in the post area, and determining when an assist should be credited.

To ensure that the data were recorded accurately there will be a categorical audit performed on the three areas in question.
The auditor will first be trained on what to look for when dealing with the three subjective areas. This will be accomplished by showing the auditor 10 examples each of what is inacceptable scoring position, post position, and what constitutes an assist.

The auditor will also be shown 10 examples each of what is not in acceptable scoring position or post position, and what would not be constituted as an assist. Lastly, the auditor will be shown 10 examples for each of the three categories that represent a grey area where the auditor would have to use subjectivity to determine what to record. ..."

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts:
Linear Weights - Estimated Points Produced

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts
"... Please, give me an example of linear weights formula applied to the basketball statistics analysis... "

Basically linear weights claims to obtain points or something like points as a mark from a formula that looks like this:

Points Created= a*PTS + b-*AST + c*OR + d*DR + e*STL + f*BLK - g*TO - h*(FGA-FGM) - i*(FTA-FTM) - j*PF - k*FF - l*DQ

In some versions of this formula, the result is scaled by a factor that accounts for whether the team (or player's team, if it's applied to a player) played at a faster or slower pace than normal.

Generally is assigned the value of 1 to each of the weights, a' through i', and 0 to the others.

Basketball Registering Stats Referred Questions:
Player's Peak Age in the NBA and Europe

Basketball Registering Stats Referred Questions
"... What's the Player's Peak Age in the NBA and Europe ? And waht about the percentages analysis according to the eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System ? ..."

Some rigidly accurate studies conducted using linear weights ratings like PER and Wins Produced, have shown that the peak age in the NBA is about 27, and in Europe 28.

However, knowing the base of this researches, we must take in account also that young players tend to be overrated by their box score stats.

The key issue is not the specific point in the player’s 20s where the peak occurs, but rather that performance after age 30 has a noticeable drop-off. In the player’s twenties the slope downward is quite gradual and quasi-imperceptible.

Player's Peak Age in the NBA and Europe
Photograph: Not Qualified to Comment

Despite fairly large samples, the percentages at age 25 and age 26 are not high enough above 50 percent to be statistically certain that players to tend to improve on average at those seasons. So peak age could be anywhere from 25 through 27 by this method.

Es posible que a la luz de nuestras investigaciones en las Clínicas eBA, de ese pico de edad es realmente mayor que los 27 o 28 mostrados por esos estudios.

See in our forum the 'player's peak age' topics and the exposition "Basketball Statistical Analysis" at eBA ONLINE.

Court Sense: Winning Basketball's Mental Game by Coach  John Giannini


Court Sense:
Winning Basketball's Mental Game
By Coach John Giannini

The best basketball players and coaches are known not only for their success in the sport but for the manner in which they manifest their knowledge and abilities in playing, coaching, and teaching the game.

Court Sense by John Giannini highlights all those qualities that make players and teams great, and it provides practical ways to improve any intangibles that might be lacking.

Oscar Robertson, Larry Bird, Earvin 'Magic' Johnson, Michael Jordan, Steve Nash, Diana Taurasi, and other great players past and present share a special grasp of what is needed in every situation on the court and how to maximize their own effectiveness as well as that of their team.

Teams coached by John Wooden, Phil Jackson, Pat Summitt, and Mike Krzyzewski won many championships because of their coaches' amazing ability to teach, motivate, discipline, and unite players to perform to their potential individually and as a group.

John Giannini highlights all those qualities that make players and teams great, and it provides practical ways to improve any intangibles that might be lacking. The first half of the book covers all the basics a player must have in place, on and off the court, in order to excel.

The second half features the six Cs that are crucial to on-court performance: coachability, communication, cohesion, capacity to lead, competitiveness, and concentration.

Sunday's Reflexions on Basketball Statistics:
The Race Relations in the NBA: Fair or Foul ?

Basketball Statistician's Sunday's Reflexions
Two studies paint contrasting pictures of race relations in the National Basketball Association. The New York Times released data from a study conducted over the course of 13 NBA seasons, which found that white referees called more fouls against Black players than against white players.

This study came out at the same time that Baron Davis and Stephen Jackson got tossed out of their playoff game against the Dallas Mavericks for clapping (no, not cussing, fouling or fighting, but clapping). This study affirms allegations of racism from several critics of the NBA, who point to the NBA’s age limit, dress code and other policies, as unfair and biased against Black players.

Afterward, the MSNBC reported a study which reached a very different conclusion: “When it comes to handling race in sports, nobody does it better than the NBA”

This study, released by the Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sports at the University of Central Florida, has found that the NBA has the highest percentages of VPs and office personnel of color in professional men’s sports history.

The NBA also has the only Black CEOs and presidents, and with 12 Black head coaches, leads pro sports in diversity. How do these statistics weigh against the previous study in regards to claims of progressive vs. prejudiced NBA policy? How can Black owners and coaches lobby for equal treatment of Black players (or should they)?

The Race Relations in the NBAPhotograph: Pro Basketball Talk

Trying to analyze those researches, I remembered the words of Phil Jackson when he said "you can almost make statistics prove what you want to prove. If you’re looking for it, of course you’re going to find it!”

After reading the 43 pages paper, I reached my own conclusions from the point of view of the statistics and numbers.
The NBA study includes only a fraction of the number of games (and fouls) in the original study. It fails to control for the countless variables included (position and size of players, all-star status, etc.).

The study is relied on publicly available “box scores” that show, among other statistics, the number of fouls each player received in the game. The race of the referees was categorized for each game in terms of the racial composition of the three-person crew, since from the "box scores" there is no way of knowing which of the three referees called fouls on which of the players. Consequently, a crew was either categorized as all-white, all-black, 2/3 white or 1/3 white.

Therefore, without being able to distinguish with exactitude which referee called a foul on which player, the controversy based on experimental data, not on a theory, from the authors of that post "Race Relations in the NBA" about racial influence in an unfair way is hold in suspicion when we apply standard statistics analysis.

Friday Press Clippings:
Lakers' Practice Featured on NBA TV's Real Training Camp

Basketball Statistician's Friday Press Clippings
From 20 Second Timeout
By David Friedman
Download source here: ' Lakers' Practice Featured on NBA TV's Real Training Camp ' by David Friedman

"... even though "stat gurus" (and certain so-called experts) insisted that Kobe Bryant would not have had to hit so many game winning shots if Bryant had not allegedly been so inefficient early in games--Coach Jackson confirmed what I repeatedly said about the Lakers' bench and their lack of depth. ..."

"... Nixon repeatedly marveled at how simple and basic the practice was but I think that this deceptive simplicity is actually the touchstone of Jackson's coaching genius (as it was for John Wooden, Red Auerbach and Vince Lombardi); coaching is not about making things complex and it is not about the vaunted "in game adjustments" with which some media members are so obsessed: coaching is about preparing players in practice to deal with the most likely scenarios that will happen during games and coaching is about making sure that players are well schooled in the fundamentals. ..."

"... During one of the drills, the Lakers used the toss back device; old school fans probably remember when former ABA player George Lehmann demonstrated the toss back during one of those classic Red on Roundball sessions.

The toss back consists of a panel of taut strings that can be deployed at various angles; players toss the ball at the panel and it comes back to them so that they can shoot, pass or rebound (depending on the drill). ... "

"... The pivoting drills were very interesting. Jackson explained that there are inside pivots, outside pivots, inside reverse pivots and outside reverse pivots and that which pivot a player uses depends on where he is on the court and how the defense is guarding him. Players who pivoted incorrectly during the drills were gently corrected by Jackson or one of the assistant coaches.

Pivoting is a vital skill for all basketball players (not just post players) and it is essential in the Triangle Offense; whether a player receives the ball in the low post, the high post or on the perimeter he must be able to make the right read, execute a crisp pivot and then pass, shoot or drive. ..."

"... Regarding James and the Miami Heat, Jackson said, "We're the champs but they're favored and I think that's a real incentive, a wonderful incentive for us." ..."
