Thank you @NeilR and @MaddieJ for the time with @StanVanGundy.  I never imagined that a great friend would be as engaged about analytics as we are across the Alteryx community!  What a fun talk!  #analyticseverywhere

Thanks for the opportunity, @LibbyD - even though we were talking about sports analytics most of the time, a lot of what SVG said can apply to data challenges every business faces. My favorite quote of his:

The amount of information that is available to coaches and executives in the NBA is phenomenal and the real challenge is figuring out what's most important - what can be most helpful to you in terms of winning and losing games.

That was awesome @NeilR! I guess it is safe to say Analytics is the ultimate game changer. I've been a Stan Van Gundy fan for a while now and have always been curious about analytics in the NBA. It was really cool to get the inside scoop, and yikes $600K a year...I'm rethinking my life choices!

@NeilR Amazing interview. It is one of the most interesting interview about sport analytics I ever listened. I enjoyed hearing Stan talking about how NBA analysts work on minimizing injuries on players...how they try to select players who won't be injured in their 4th year of contract and will keep performing based on their profiles. At the end, his prediction for the NBA finals turned out to be very accurate -)
