TrueHoop at MIT Sloan Sports Analytical Conference

8

For those that don't know, the Sloan Sports Conference is a conference dedicated to sports analytics founded by Rockets GM Daryl Morey. It's forum for anything from statistical analysis to sports philosophy. The ESPN NBA blog TrueHoop did a great job of capturing the conference. One of the more interesting (but somewhat common knowledge) concepts introduced at the conference is the "Mediocrity Treadmill" which basically says that getting a low seed in the playoffs is bad for the future of a team and breeds mediocrity. The Bucks and 76ers are given as examples of these teams. You can see all the articles about the conference on the sidebar to the right.
