Thanks to all of you who posted comments on Sebastian Telfair. Several of you thought that Telfair’s +6 points rating (per 48 minutes) was probably due to the “bad backups.” This is not the case. Telfair’s primary backups Foye and Ollie were not bad last season. Foye had a +3 rating and Ollie a +2 rating. My figures in previous post were adjusted +/- by the way. I guess maybe the lesson is that Foye and Ollie played poorly at the point, but then surely they played great during the rest of their time on the court.
Again my book on math and sports, Mathletics ,is available on Amazon. I will soon be posting some comments on team prospects for the 2009-2010 season, Watch for them! I will start by telling you why I think the Bulls will not make the playoffs.
