Here is the audio from the Basketbal Panel at the 2013 MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference. The panel featured Stan Van Gundy, R.C. Buford, Kevin Pritchard, Mike Zarren, Zach Lowe, and was moderated by Pablo Torre. SVG was awesome once again on the panel and provided the counter point in terms of the use of analytics and how the need for communication of that data was way more important than the data itself. Enjoy!

An interview with Stan Van Gundy at the 2013 MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference. The other voice you hear is the homie Jordan Ramirez, who writes for Warriorsworld.net, and we ask Van Gundy about the Warriors, what they need to do to stay afloat in the playoff race, the emergence of Steph Curry & him playing with Klay Thompson, and finally we get his thoughts on David Lee with regard to the Dwight Effect panel that pretty much ethered Lee’s defense. Enjoy the Audio Goodness.

Pics from the first 2 panels from the 2013 MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference. One set if from the Revenge of the Nerds Panel featuring Michael Lewis, Paraag Marathe, Mark Cuban, Daryl Morey, and Nate Silver. The bottom batch of pics was from the “It’s Not You, It’s Me: Break-Ups in Sports” and was lead by Stan Van Gundy, Bill Polian, Steve Pagliuca, Brian Burke, and Jackie MacMullan.

The star of the second panel was definitely Stan Van Gundy and I would suggest that he get a one on one for next year’s conference because I can literally hear that guy talk for hours.

Keep checking back in with the blog because I’ll be updating all day.

Here is what I wrote for BayAreaBall on the panels that I would like to attend and what I thought they would bring in terms analytical relevance to Bay Area Teams. I focused on Farhan Zaidi and Paraag Marathe, both analytical leaders for their respective teams and ushering in a new way to use statistical analysis both on and off the field.
