Yesterday, in Part 1 of our exclusive chat with Grizzlies VP of Basketball Operations John Hollinger, Josh “Red” Coleman asked John about what the team is good at and what the team needs to get better at, as well as a quick overview of what Hollinger’s Player Efficiency Rating is and how it works.
Then it was my turn.
I say that like it was a big deal, and it kinda was for me. I asked John about how statistical data might actually influence on-court performance. But what I’d really been dying to ask him had to do with SportVU, a technology that tracks in-game analytics at an INSANE level (Ex: Is Kevin Durant more likely to score after one dribble or two before he shoots? Yeah. LIKE THAT.) I asked him and whether the Grizzlies are going to use it, seeing as how it seems something like that is tailor made for a man of Hollinger’s talents. I’ve written about SportVU before, so if you want backstory, check out that link.
