NBAGeek Takes ALS Challenge

Not much basketball today, I'm afraid, but I did get on the Slacktivism bandwagon to help raise a little money for ALS:


The Boxscore Geeks Show: Drake, the Turnover Era, and Robert Horry

The Boxscore Geeks show is back. We dive into historical numbers, "debate" Robert Horry's Hall of Fame accolades, and give Drake diplomatic immunity.


Robert Horry: The Box Score Geek Hall of Fame Vote

Is Robert Horry a Hall of Fame Player? A footnote in the Boston Globe prompted the question (h/t Truehoop):

Count Da Ringz.

Dre, Arturo and Patrick get together to discuss if Horry truly belongs in the Hall of Fame.


The Turnover Era in BoxScoreGeeks

For advanced analytics fans, 1977 was an important year in the NBA. In 1977-78, the NBA started tracking individual turnovers in the boxscore. So when I began updating the BoxScore Geeks database to add historical data, it made sense to start with the 1977-78 season.

The Best NBA Robins of all time (Part 2)

In Part 1 of the Robin's piece, we took a look at the best seasons of the second-best player on an NBA team (say that five times fast) during the "Wins Produced era" (1974 onwards). In Part 2, we use the handy-dandy all time Win Shares database from basketball reference to do it for the entire history of the the NBA and the ABA. 

And to placate my associates, this time we acknowledge that Batman and Robin can sometimes also be Robin and Robin.

These are not the sidekicks you are used to.
