The MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference (SSAC) can help people discover their interests – to inspire them. It also has the ability to take those who have been inspired and give them unparalleled opportunities and access. For some, it does both. We recently spoke with Philip Maymin, an Analytics Professor at Fairfield University and a former Analytics Consultant for the New Orleans Pelicans, Minnesota Timberwolves, and Milwaukee Bucks. Philip Maymin is the only person to win the SSAC Research Papers Competition, Hackathon, and present a Competitive Advantage talk at the conference. He talks about the conference’s impact on his life and career, some of the work he has presented at the conference over the years, and some of his analytics-based opinions.
