Sports Podcast – Follow up

A few months ago, I posted something asking the community if they’d be interested in listening to a sports analytics podcast . Since there was a lot of positive responses, I decided to take a leap of faith and start my own podcast. I realized that it might have more reach if it focuses on basketball in general instead of just basketball analytics.

I just released my first episode of the “Shooters Shoot” podcast which is available on both Spotify and Apple Podcasts. It focuses on quick game recaps and some slight analysis of particular NBA games during the week. Was thinking about uploading weekly but could change if the feedback is super positive.

Would love if you all could go give it a listen and provide any positive/negative feedback you have. Hoping I made the right decision and maybe it could even grow into something big! Hope you enjoy!

Automatically analyzing sports footage

Hey everyone! I recently started building , a really easy way for software developers to understand video content. We’ve just started to work with quite a few media / sports analytics companies after having primarily focused on other applications like security, supply chain, and general media.

I’m personally a huge basketball fan . I’m just trying to better understand what everyone doing regular number crunching data science on sports wish they had more visibility on. Maybe every time any player did a celebration? Or how fast a player is moving at all times?

Companies like Second Spectrum ) have great examples of what these insights might lead to at a higher level, but I’m curious to understand what basic things you feel like you’re missing information about in sports numbers.

Resources for Sports Analytics

Hi! I want to get started with sports analytics and win-probability modelling, primarily with basketball, and wanted to know resources for learning statistics for the same. I’m a final year undergraduate with a minor in mathematics, and am fairly comfortable with AP level probability and statistics, linear algebra , single variable calculus and multivariable calculus .

The ratings are my level of comfortability with the areas. I’ve also read some papers on the same, ), ), ) and ). I can read through some of the papers but barely understand the mathematical/statistical lingo in others. Would appreciate any help, thanks!

Collecting big data about physical activity of people / fitness / sport

I need to design a data architecture to classify phsyical activity level in different countries of the world. If it’s too difficult to have international data, also data about a certain country would be ok.

Do you know ways to obtain data about the frequency with whom people do sport / physical activity / fitness ? . It seems that fitness-related apps only allow you to obtain API key permission for YOUR sport data. Do you think is it possible to obtain overall geographically located fitness/sport/physical activity-related data?

In addition to this, do you know some good databases/datasets/repositories in this sense?

For example:

-**A dataset/DB** with columns like: *age, -gender, -city, -country, -answers to questions about sport activity*

-**API data** to request data about several people, their provenience and their avg daily steps etc.

-**A dataset/DB** with columns like *-city, -country, -age, -gender, -daily steps, -hours spent cycling* and so on.

It would be great to obtain dataset which update over time. Otherwise, in absence of them static databases would also be good.

If you know other ways to measure, through data, physical activity on certain territories, they would be well accepted.

Sending transcript

Hi, I am a freshmen admitted to UIUC in the class of 2026. I have one question regarding submitting transcripts.

I have to submit transcripts that show all academic records from years 9-12 by July 1st. I went to two different highschools, one in Korea and the other in South Africa .

I already sent the transcript from the school in South Africa and the university received it. However, I didn’t send the transcript from the school in Korea because I thought the university does not need the transcript from middle school. The deadline for submitting transcripts is the day after tomorrow, and it is very unlikely that the university receives it until the deadline even if I send the transcript now.

Will my acceptance get rescinded if I miss the deadline? I already sent an email to the university. I would really appreciate it if you can let me know how bad my situation is.

Ivey’s candidacy is also under consideration here, as the idea of constructing arguably the most explosive backcourt in the NBA is said to be intriguing for Rockets brass

The Rockets pick third in what many consider to be a three-player draft, making this a relatively easy choice on face value. Ivey’s candidacy is also under consideration here, as the idea of constructing arguably the most explosive backcourt in the NBA is said to be intriguing for Rockets brass. But it will be difficult to pass on what many consider to be the draft’s most skilled offensive player — a 6-10, shot-creating dynamo in Banchero who can carry a significant load with his ability to handle, pass and shoot. Banchero’s playmaking ability should pair well with the explosive transition scoring and shot-making ability offers. Banchero could start next to a more traditional big man ) or operate alongside another perimeter-oriented big man ), making Banchero a strong fit for the Rockets long-term

NBA opinions are mixed regarding the long-term future of . in Houston, after what’s been a roller-coaster ride of a short career thus far. Adding another steady-handed guard in the backcourt who can play with or without the ball, excels in pick-and-roll and is a strong perimeter shooter makes some sense here, especially since Washington has the size and length to play in many different lineup configurations.

2023-2024 Rockets (Playoff/Play-In Contenders?)

In my opinion, the 2023-2024 Rockets will show the true face of this rebuild and our young core.

If they are not a serious playoff/play-in contender by the 2023-2024 season, this will be a very long rebuild. I think they have to potential to be great, but one never knows in the landscape of the NBA…

Fo reference, the 2023-2024 Rockets will no longer be in control of their own pick.This means there is no use in purposefully tanking for a top pick, since were not guaranteed to keep that pick.

Also of note:

– Jalen Green will be entering his third season

– Paolo Banchero will be entering into their second season

– John Wall & Christian Wood will be off the books and open up 2 max slots

– The Rockets will most likely draft another lottery talent who will be a rookie

– The young “role players” core of this team will be in their 3rd/4th year respectively.

This means the team will have more NBA experience under their belt and that they should be competing for a play in spot at minimum in my opinion.

With the cap space available, we should be looking to sign veteran players to help compete, compliment and teach our young core what it means to be contenders.

With all of the assets & picks we have, there is no reason we shouldn’t be in a position to also trade for the next disgruntled superstar as well..

If we are not at this stage by 2023-2024, we are in for a very long rebuild, and one in which we do not control our own destiny.

Thoughts?

Since we’ve got a fuck the thunder thread going, how about one for fuck the warriors?

I seriously hate those fans. I used to go back and forth about the worst fanbase in the league: okc, raptors, Lakers or warriors. Its definitely the warriors. Just a trashy delusional fanbase who thinks they’ve got the best player of all time in curry and an amazing young core for the future.

Here’s a newsflash: curry is the luckiest most insulated superstar in the league. Dudes played on stacked rosters and when his co star was injured, couldn’t carry his team to the playoffs. He’ll never be as talented as KD. Warriors were lucky they got to experience a true superstar before kd dipped.

And the young core? Overrated. Poole is good but they act like he’s the second coming of christ. Poole will never be as good as green.. Wiseman is hot garbage. Kuminga is not close to the player sengun is. Moody is trash.

Hope the warriors lose to the Celtics in the most embarrassing way. Just want draymond to shut his ugly fucking mouth. Fuck the warriors and they’re delusional fans.

Hot take

Coach Silas is what’s going to be holding our team back from playing well together as a team. We’ve seen a lot of our young guys get better. Frankly I believe that has nothing to do with Silas and all to do with Lucas because Silas has no history of developing guys. Don’t give me Lebron and Luka or Steph you’re talking about 3 generational talents that were always going to get better on their own. I’ve still yet to see any evidence at all that he’s a good head coach. No signs of good X’s and O’s. His defense sucks. His play calling sucks. His rotation aren’t horrible more so pathetic. Will he go back to his not playing Kj phase. Or maybe playing wood at the dumbass 5 where he gets bullied. Or maybe playing Sengun only 20 mins a night again. If this team can’t get over 32 wins this year please y’all stop supporting trash.
