ICYMI:  We recently published Basketball Intelligence’s first podcast, featuring our conversation with Dean Oliver.  Dean is recognized as the “godfather” of the modern analytics movement in pro basketball.
In 2004, he published his groundbreaking “Basketball On Paper”, a treatise that is still frequently cited.  Dean’s insights were valued contributions to the three NBA franchises he worked for from 2004-2015. His influence on NBA analytics is profound.
