'Pro Basketball Prospectus 2011-12' Now Available

For the late Christmas shopper: Pro Basketball Prospectus 2011-12 is now available for download at the low price of $9.98. (The paperback will be out soon, and available via Amazon.) The link above has excerpts on the Wizards and Timberwolves available free for download; the book has Kevin Pelton and Bradford Doolittle taking on the entire league, from team overviews to player breakdowns.

I was given a preview of the Bulls page, and it's thorough, knowledgeable, funny, and optimistic (top-5 offense!). Here's a brief snippet from the Bulls team page which was quite interesting:

Thibodeau and GarPax want players with gym-rat personalities who have a reputation for on-court selflessness. The amount of research Chicago does on prospective players is staggering. The Bulls don’t have a reputation for being at the vanguard of the tempo-free stats movement, but in fact their system of information management is as sophisticated as any in the league. And the database contains a lot more than on-court statistics.
