Pera Wants to use Advanced Analytics

Jason Levien remembers the first time he played basketball with Robert Pera. They were in Taiwan. They decided to go to opposite ends of the court to warm up.

"I look down there, and he's throwing it down," said Levien.

Yes, Memphians. Your new Grizzlies owner can dunk.

He's 6-3 and can get off the deck. He looks like he could be starting at forward for Rhodes or CBU. Now he's sitting in a luxury box in FedExForum, talking about his plans for his new NBA team. Someone asks him if he's met any of the Grizzlies players yet.

"I met some, when we came here in March," he said. "But they might have thought I was Heisley's grandson."
