Pistons Hire Analytics Guru Sammy Gelfand Away From Warriors 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Thu Jul 12, 2018 9:18 pm

The Detroit Pistons have hired Sammy Gelfand, who had served as an analytics guru for the Golden State Warriors.


Gelfand traveled with the team as a back of the bench assistant coach. Gelfand was Steve Kerr's go-to guy for statistical research.


The New York Times did a glowing mid-playoffs feature on Gelfand, titled: “The Left Side of Steve Kerr’s Brain.”

Detroit.. Hey Sammy, how were you successful in defeating Houston.?

Sammy.. Well, statistically speaking, 4 all stars, is better than the rockets 2. Our algorithm was peaking during game 7. Especially when numerically, Houston's stars went from 2, to a feeble 1. If you add them alltogether, the sum equates to 3. Meaning 3 championships.
