🎧 Podcast: Using Analytics to Project the Draft
Seth Partnow and The Midrange Theory
Chad is joined by The Athletic's Seth Partnow, former Director of Basketball Research for the Milwaukee Bucks, to discuss his new book, The Midrange Theory: Basketball's Evolution in the Age of Analytics.
They discuss how NBA scouts and front offices are using analytics to improve their drafting, key statistics that translate to NBA success, hits and misses that Seth has had in his years scouting the draft, how Giannis Antetokounmpo turned analytics models on their head to become a star and Seth's thoughts about several of the top rookies, including Cade Cunningham, Evan Mobley and Jalen Green.
Great interview, just like Seth’s book is a great read.
