Basketball Dorks

This past weekend, athletes and math-letes gathered at MIT to talk about statistics at the annual MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference. For the past eight years MIT has hosted the forum to discuss the ways advanced statistics and metrics are changing the face of sports–from the way teams evaluate talent to the way we watch on TV.

ESPN’s Grantland searched their archives and put together an anthology of writing on the subject and the event for conference attendees. I was tasked with illustrating a story by Bill Simmons in which he outs himself as a basketball stat geek… and demands more statistical measures to apply to the game. Art direction by Juliet Litman.
