Innovators and Adopters

In his article about Shane Battier in the New York Times, “The No-Stats All-Star,” Michael Lewis states that “each [sport] now supports a subculture of smart people who view it not just as a game to be played but as a problem to be solved.” Battier is one of the innovators of this on the court, where he consistently used analytics data to better his game.
