My latest at Huffington Post – LeBron James is doing for himself what Jerry Krause did for Jordan – examines MJ’s recent criticism of LeBron. More specifically, the post attacks the notion that Jordan managed to win titles all by himself.
In addition to shamelessly drawing attention to my work, I would also like to draw attention to some of the wonderful work that has recently been posted on the “Wages of Wins network.”
- Arturo Galletti – at Arturo Silly Little Stats – has offered three excellent posts analyzing the history of the NBA draft.
- Ty Willihnganz – at Courtside Analyst — seems to produce one great post after another. Here are three of his latest examining the media’s coverage of John Wall, the prospects for the Bulls in 2010-11, and the performance of the 1988 U.S. Men’s Olympic basketball team.
- Andres Alverez – at Nerd Numbers the Blog – has some very interesting analysis of role players in the NBA. Unlike Arturo – who promises to post every day – Andres promises to only post on Thursdays. So keep that schedule in mind going forward.
- Robbie O’Malley – at Roblog – has two fantastic posts on Chris Paul’s recent demand to depart New Orleans. Each of these posts offers and evaluates a number of different trade scenarios.
So there you go. If you have not been following the Wages of Wins Network, you now have nine posts to read. And I didn’t even link to everything that has been written.
Let me close by noting that there is even more that will soon be posted here. Andres Perezchica has offered some interesting analysis of D-League players. And Burzin Daruwala has written a review of the Portland Trail Blazers that I think everyone will enjoy reading. Look for the posts from Andres and Burzin to appear in the next few couple of days.
