Why Middleton is worth Mucho $$s

Filed under: Uncategorized — wwinston @ 8:19 pm

Look how Bucks played last year with Middleton in and out. For example Middleton and Bayless in Bucks play 5 ppg better than average. Bayless in and Middleton out 9 ppg worse than average. I do not know what he does but he impacts the game! These numbers are adjusted for strength of opponents faced.

  1. Stumbled on this site and I wanted to reinforce to you that it’s an exceptional one.

    I’m a huge basketball fan (and played at a high level before college) and rising senior studying OR at Georgia Tech. I studied out of a book of yours as well for an Optimization class.

    Wanted to comment on this post because Kris Middleton is a great example of a player whose contributions are brought to light by using analytics techniques. Great payoff for him this summer. I look forward to reading more of your work.
