Thank You GSOM for Turning Me On To Advanced Statistics!

When I first started posting here, I really had no appreciation for TS, WP48, etc. Somewhere along the line, after realizing I was being the instigator provocateur in many discussions, with few facts to back up my assertions, I saw the proverbial light. I know I pissed off a bunch of GSOMers before that, so I want to officially apologize for that, and just state that I truly appreciate the "education" I have received here. And I am saying that unironically and with complete seriousness. I always thought of baseball players in terms of stats, so it is clearly intellectually consistent to view basketball players in the same way. Yes, I am one of those who had been fooled by Monta Ellis' amazing athletic drives to the baskets and "difficult" shots (and Latrell Sprewell before him). No more I tell you! No more. I'm a lifelong Warriors fan, but this upcoming season will be the first time I can intelligently analyze and appreciate the contributions of the players. I don't know if that will make watching games more fun, perhaps, it will have the opposite effect. But at least I will be watching with my eyes wide open.
