    Good Article. Kirk Goldsberry is quickly becoming my favorite writer on Grantland.

    Hopefully the many people on this board who complain about how "ANALYTICS DON'T WORK", while not understanding how analytics is used in game-planning are reading this.

    One of the things I love about Morey's approach is that it's the same thing Rudy T did with his Rockets teams intuitively 20 years ago. He played a roster of Olajuwon in the low post and a bunch of 3-point shooters. The only difference is that Rudy T probably didn't take it as far as he should have.

    Rudy missed the getting foul shots part but to be fair, only Jordan got calls back then.

    Rudy had the added benefit of coaching during the era of illegal defense. That made the inside-out offense even deadlier back then.

    Lets hope Kevin Love reads it and sings with Rockets next time he's available.
