When I went to grade school in a different era, one of our lessons had to do with our ancestors country of origin. The teacher would have you find the origin of your ancestors. Then we would do work with fractions, you were 1/4 Irish, 1/2 English, and 1/4 Welch. As we did the work, my ancestors might as well have come to America in 1612 for all I cared- it was a long time ago.

Our number one priority of the summer was to work on the basic fundamentals of defense. Our feeling was our presses and traps the last couple years had become less effective because our players were not familiar with basic movement skills that are learned in man to man defense. While we did not become a great half court mm team this summer, we feel like our players improved in the skills of playing defense. It is our hope we can then become a better pressing team this winter.
Advanced statistics have made quite a bit of headway in the basketball world over the past couple of years. However, the general public, NBA pundits, and NBA front offices still tend to fawn over players that score a lot of points, regardless of how efficient they are. Which is why a player like Carmelo Anthony, who the advanced stat Wins Produced ranks as the seventh (!!) top producer on his own team, will get plenty of MVP votes this year. So, as an alternative to the traditional NBA awards that will be presented over the coming weeks, we thought we'd reveal The Wins Produced NBA Award Winners, based on the Wins Producedstats housed on The NBA Geek website. The envelopes, please.
