Layups: A Jamesian Look at the 2000s

Posted by Neil Paine on February 6, 2009

As a big fan of Bill James' work (especially the Historical Abstracts), I absolutely love this. In fact, it was an idea I thinking of doing myself, but this is way better than what I could have come up with (maybe they'll let me do the 90s?). What I'm talking about, of course, is Basketball Prospectus' Kevin Pelton and his James-style look back at the decade that was (still is, for now) the "oughts". A must-read for the NBA enthusiast -- which I'm assuming describes our entire readership here at BBR.

    I've been waiting with bated breath for the Historical Basketball Abstract ever since I saw Sean Lahman's recent NFL Abstract... please, someone, make it happen.

    Wow, that's nice work by Kevin Pelton.

    I've looked for resources that have this information in a concise fashion. I would like to see one for the 1990s too.
