I agree with this to a point. Obviously, in situations where a defender has the choice of giving up an open layup or dunk or fouling, the decision becomes even more clear: Make the foul. But my assumption is that those decisions are clear enough that they will not be swayed by a small change in incentives because the… Read more
God damn it.
That’s not how any of this works.
I use this because it doesn’t require me to recharge it, because it doesn’t block the rest of my audio setup, and because for the life of me I couldn’t figure out how to make the much-liked over-ear version output game audio. I’m sure my teammates hate it, though.

The way clutch numbers are useful for a given team in a given season is that they are the best way to account for score effects… Read more
That is not what data nerds say about sustained crunch time stats in basketball.
When people say Westbrook is making his team better, they are not talking about “assists.” He’s among the lead leaders in improving teammates’ shooting percentages when he passes to them for a shot compared to when they take any other shot, and has been for some years. The team is not only worse on a per-play scoring… Read more
Every statistical indicator available to us suggests he makes his teammates better.
