This is a very good article on how analytics are used in the NBA. Fans of Moneyball will especially enjoy it.
An economist named David Berri, citing a stat he created called Wins Produced, which boils down a player’s positive and negative contributions into one number, went so far as to argue that KG was the NBA’s best player in every season from 2002-03 to 2005-06.
I’m looking forward to the rest of the ESPN analytics issue.
I’m a simple man. I like to use soap. Not hand lotion or body lotion or whatever trendy people call the stuff, I just want ordinary soap. So I was confused by Caesar’s Palace. They had both a skincare bar and a cleansing bar.
Which one was the soap? Come to think of it, what’s the difference between a skincare bar and a cleansing bar? I turned them over to see if there were any clues.
They’re the same thing! The list of ingredients is the exact same thing for both! How wonderful! Caesar’s Palace, handed packaging the exact same thing with two different product names. Hey, Caesar. How about you quit messing around and just put out a bar of soap? And maybe some shaving cream while you’re at it.
I get a lot of dumb solicitations at work. This is one of the best.
Really? A whole company, just to sell an automated signature? Give me a break.
The waffle at Caeser’s Palace. Complete with a portrait of Julius Caesar in the middle.
Amazing. Amazing because I had said to myself , “For $19, this waffle had better have a #$@*@! picture of Caesar on it!”

I love being in Las Vegas! Lots of action riding tonight. Here are the bets I have riding on today’s game.
- Pats to win (straight up moneyline)
- Pats to have five or less penalties
- The under (54 points)
- Eli will pass for less than 303 yards
- More second half points than first half points. I like this one.
- The last score will not be a touchdown
The best bets are the crazy ones!
- Ben Jarvis Green Ellis will have more rushing yards than LeBron James has points+rebounds+steals. I think I took the wrong side of this one.
- Victor Cruz and Aaron Hernandez will have more total passing yards than points scored in the Duke Miami game. Love it!
Mrs. Muttrox is also betting the Pats win by 8 or more and that the Pats score first. I have several squares in a $10 game, and we are introducing the kids to it tonight with a ten-cent version. This is wasted money for me, as I am a statistical freak in squares, having never one a dime despite buying 10-15% of squares in ~20 different games.
What’s that? What is Muttrox’s prediction. I refuse to make one!
