Video from the 2009 MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference. The 2010 conference is going on today. Matt Lloyd, Director of College Scouting for the Chicago Bulls, is attending. For those curious. Matt Lloyd graduated from UIC with a degree in communications and started working for the Bulls when he was 25 (I looked him up). Best quotes: John Hollinger - "We don't know jack-shit" Mark Cuban - "The wages of wins is the dumbest data I have ever seen in my life" Daryl Morey - "In contrast to baseball...the coaches [in basketball] are probably more receptive [to statistics advice] because the analysis being done shows that their were more right in their beliefs. Whereas in baseball, everything was like: don't hit-and-run, don't steal, don't do anything; they should just sit there...maybe use the phone and call the bullpen, but not too often; otherwise just don't screw it up." John Hollinger - "Fortunately for Daryl [Morey], there's no luxury tax on analysts." Mark Cuban - "Hiring coaches is the hardest thing there is. It's far easier to pick players then it is to pick coaches."
