Pro Basketball Prospectusby John Hollinger
Hoops fans want to know more than just who won the game or who scored the most points. They want to know why their team won or lost, how they can improve for the next season, and what their chances are of making the playoffs. Pro Basketball Prospectus moves far beyond the standard "triple-double" statistical references to provide a unique interpretation of just what those numbers mean within the context of the team's success.
Author John Hollinger evaluates every player's ability to rebound, pass, and score, and treats in depth how those skills affect his team. Hollinger doesn't rate players based just on raw numbers, either -- he looks closely at a team's pace, defensive ability, and a myriad of other factors to create innovative new statistics that determine the importance of every player's skills.
Hollinger's evaluations often vindicate common knowledge, such as the top ranking for Shaquille O'Neal, but also show exactly why players such as Latrell Sprewell and Jalen Rose are far less valuable than many people imagine. He analyzes teams on the basis of past seasons and forecasts what their offseason moves could mean for the season ahead.
Pro Basketball Prospectus includes in-depth analysis of every team and all of today's players, features essays and research answering historical questions, and discusses new rules and how they have changed the game. Every basketball fan will gain incredible new insights into the game from Pro Basketball Prospectus.
