More SVG Love :)

Gortat says SVG is the "Godfather of [Gortat's] Career" Well said, Marcin. Keep beating up on them Pacers!

A Dream Come True For Some Uber Analytic Basketball Nerd???

This looks awesome. Sacramento will hire two analysts from fans who post their work, and will allow them into the Sacramento draft "war room." Crowd sourcing is what they call it...This looks like a dream come true for those of us who love dissecting each draft pick as obsessively as we have done for the last two seasons...

SVG to Golden State?

Stan Van Gundy and the Warriors? Thoughts, everyone?

Hopefully the Dwightmare is over forever...

Looks like Dwight will be a Rocket. I wish him well.

Who would OPP pick if we traded down or "bought" another lotto pick?

Hello Magic Fans! Recently, we developed an OPP Big Board for players that we want to draft. Click here to view Tyler's wrap-up and analysis of our community's picks. Also recently, Ridiculous...

CBS Top 25 Prospects Ranked By WoW's WP40

I stumbled across this site, trying to smarten up. Of interesting note, from this author's methodology: 1) It seems to me that Olynyk, Dieng, and Withey would be good buy low sell high moneyball prospects (which confirms my recent pro-Withey bias, possibly...). The author further explains that this methodology (which values bigs greater) only examines past performance and may or may not portend future NBA performance perfectly. But then he adds the somewhat obvious "players who are productive in college have a much better chance of being productive in the NBA." Just throwing out a proverbial steak for all the OPP advanced stat dogs to chew and devour...

If Noel slips down to us....we need a contingency plan....

I wonder what Hennigan's strategy will be if Cleveland doesn't pick Nerlens Noel. Here are three possibilities that might make sense for the Magic. I am putting this out to the OPP community so...

Muthu-Ball: Rethinking NBA Philosophy

An interesting read. In the article, Muthu Alagappan proposes 10 NBA "Positions," which are based on data similarites between certain players. Interesting stuff. Make sure you watch the video in the article! It is way more informative than the article itself.

The Dwight Effect: A New Ensemble of Interior Defense Analytics for the NBA

2

May as well post it here, too (this was originally posted in the Magic vs. Grizzlies Post Game Recap, in the comments section). This is a very interesting research paper presented at this year's MIT Sloan Sports Conference, which outlines a new way of quantifying a defender's interior defense. The user "3.3.seconds" gave a very interesting comment, saying that this method is not without its flaws. For instance, PF rate must be accounted for the amount of times a defender sends an offensive player to the foul line. Also, Andrea Bargnani (lol) is identified as elite in one of the metrics presented here... Enjoy!

Smart vs. Burke Debate = Smart Wins, But We Should Still Trade Down If We Can...

Hey all, I deleted the last version of this post and am re-posting it, because the last version was lumped as one big paragraph, and was way too verbose. So I am going to try to distill my old...

Will Andrew Nicholson become a good shot-blocker/help defender like he was in college?

One of the big reasons I liked the draft pick of Andrew Nicholson on draft day was his college stat line/scouting report, which showed that not only was he offensively gifted (the dude hit 43.4%...

Glen Davis, if you are reading this:

Thank you. Thank you for consistently diving and sacrificing your monster body to save loose balls and to help inspire the rest of the Magic to hustle as you have been doing. It is often a...
