    Lock-out games (post incident information - retitled thread)

    The Kings locked the doors but really it's up to the city police. My question is, where does the money come from to reimburse ticket holders? Isn't Vivek losing a ton of money?

    [Game] Kings v. Celtics - Sunday, March 25 - 3 PT

    Thank you for the analyses. The broadcasters did mention that it was due to the trend of more 3 pt shots being taken, but it was still not a flattering sound bite at all. I didn't realize we were that bad at something so important in today's game. I feel like JJ and Fox should be above average 3...

    [Game] Kings v. Celtics - Sunday, March 25 - 3 PT

    I watched the Celtic's stream and they said the Kings are the worst 3 point defending team in NBA HISTORY.

    Willie Cauley-Stein

    True but a quality shot blocker could do it in two consecutive games. I'd like to see him become a rebounding machine... more like 14/13/2

    Bizarro Wide World of Sports Lin Championship

    Oh wow I guess Papa really was a primadonna. Didn't expect other teams to tank this hard. Vlade, Joerger, many fans not up for that ugly fight... Still needed to be had though. 8th is literally the worst spot to be imo.

    Bizarro Wide World of Sports Lin Championship

    I've been wondering why the heck Vlade traded away our only viable tank strategy. He said Papa wouldn't get minutes and couldn't develop with us (or something like that). Is this because Joerger wouldn't play him or because Vlade is on that silly deadline he set for himself?

    Other teams are trying to lose and we aren't. Or we're just better. Or both.

    Are Top 5 picks that much better? (split)

    That's why I only went up to 2013. I think WS/48 tells the story fine, but tbh I never even heard of it until today haha Maybe since you're the stats guru you can show us how a top 5 draft wins you more championships? I am not a good basketball stats guy, obviously!

    It flattens out after 15th pick. Excluding top 10 is only 10% flatter than only excluding the top 5. So, top 5 actually matters a lot when you're talking about averages.

    To illustrate Sactowndog's point further, if you take out the top 5 picks the slope of the trendline decreases by a whopping 40% :eek:

    The dispersion is a lot higher than I expected in this subject. There's a clear trend though no matter what data you use. Kind of obvious but still fun to look at! Source: Basketball-reference.com

    Willie Cauley-Stein

    He fits with a fast team and has chemistry, especially with the pick and roll. After this draft our rebuild is pretty much over and we trade for positions we're weak at, namely SF and PF. Whatever we trade him for will be of equal value and we'll need a center out of it. So it's just shuffling...

    As several have mentioned, significance isn't exact. A crude rule of thumb is that when standard errors overlap, the difference between the means for the two groups is not significant.
