Dan Rosenbaum is an economics professor at UNC-Greensboro. He's also (apparently) a big basketball fan (according to his C.V., he was a consultant to the NBAPA in 2003). His new(ish) blog takes a hard statistical look at the NBA, and if his post on how the new NBA collective bargaining agreement and new luxury tax rules will affect the free agent market is any indication, it's going to be worth reading.

that's a great find, you don't have to be an econostatgeek to like his defensive rankings by position maybe just a defendostatgeek (and it's good to see Shane Battier getting props)

Loved to see Tony Allen #1 among shooting guards, but I'm lerry of a stat geek who would defend Chad Ford. Also leery of a geek who would have his photo plastered on everything.

Wow, the Wolves have a player in the bottom listing for every category in his perimeter defense rankings. GO TEAM! On the bright side, it's nice to see that there are actual numbers backing up my feeling that Wally Szcerbiak is a giant, bleeding defensive hole.
