Game Theory, Episode 31: NBA Rookies and Player Development Cycles

In this edition of the Game Theory Podcast, Seth Partnow comes on and talks about player development cycles, particularly in regard to Karl-Anthony Towns and Jahlil Okafor, the two most productive rookies in the NBA so far this season according to box scores. Why box scores aren’t necessarily the be all, end all, why Towns is not the best center in the NBA, and why we have plenty of reason to be excited about young players in the league.

Seth wrote about how we know better than just basic box score stats now last week, including numbers like points in the paint and points off of turnovers. 

As always, thanks for listening. You can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes at Game Theory Podcast by Sam Vecenie.
