Matthew Tynan ( @Matthew_Tynan) saw my tweet, and tweeted it out; it then went viral in moments.  Was on RealGM, lots of other sites.  May have been mentioned live on ESPN.

Very interesting article on ESPN Insider discussing who the Thunder should hire (part of their Front Office series): http://insider.espn.go.com/nba/insider/story/_/id/12753788/nba-oklahoma-city-fired-scott-brooks

The back and forth ends up settling on Alvin Gentry and Ettore Messina as the top 2 candidates, dismissing Donovan (too long a learning curve, don't want someone that unproven).

That isn't just a GM rating. Includes owners and coaching staff.

I'm on the panel. I put Presti very high, ownership a bit above average and coaching somewhat above average.

I think that's what you'll see when the 3 components are released later this week.

@Julius Wrek [AR21 FACTION] @DSMok1 @CROklahoma @d21 (That's wassup) I like it.  Not like we're giving up much.  All the pieces seem useful.

Fit (and team psyche) matters... BPM is just a rough estimate.

FYI, Nick Collison still rates very highly in the best available public metric, long term RPM: http://stats-for-the-nba.appspot.com/ratings/longterm_RPM_2015.html

On a scale of 1 to 5, how would you rate Presti's move in re-signing Collison?


5 being good.


I'd say 4.  Good, solid move.  Not spectacular.

If you get sharp people in a group, they do well.  Like ESPN's "ESPN Forecast" http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/page/ESPN-Forecast-intro-130415/nba-why-espn-forecast-works


Wisdom of the crowds works pretty well.

I would love to see % predictions on KD re-signing with OKC.


I'd say 80% chance.


Can we crowdsource this?  I bet OKC fans have a different perspective than other fans.

Nick's still close to league average, looking only at box scores, and given his history of exceptional non-box-score value, I'd bet he's still above a league-average player.  I wish he was being played more.


2 months, 3 weeks ago on Thunder sign Nick Collison to a multi-year extension

Reply

For what it's worth, I've got Nick worth about $4 million a year, based on THIS season's stats.  Box score only, not even considering his ridiculous non-box numbers every season.  Based on box score stats, he's been worth >$4 million, as much as $9 million, every year since 2007.  And I think that understates his impact.


I think it's a completely legitimate move.

@_justin @GREENE1148 [PERRY JONES IS AWFUL FACTION] @DSMok1 Yeah, it was a tough decision which way to show that.

Is it a rate stat or a counting stat? Final thought was it is a rate stat in season but then would be handled like a counting stat over multiple seasons.  Sort of odd, I know.


However, when full seasons were summed up to get career VORP numbers, the results ARE prorated for the shorter seasons.
