During the 1998-1999 and 1999-2000 NBA seasons, I worked with Allan Houston of the New York Knicks, first to break him out of a long shooting slump (1 regular season game session in ’98-’99) and then to help him become a first-time NBA All-Star (30 regular season game sessions in ’99-’00).
The #Analytics movement in basketball was still years away, but I kept track of game-by-game results to provide as much quantifiable evidence that my “mental zone” program could greatly improve game performance on a night-by-night basis.
I recently approached Andres Alvarez (@NerdNumbers) of BoxScoreGeeks.com and asked him to crunch the numbers using statistical categories in frequent use today but unavailable way back when . Dre posted his results this morning. It’s definitely worth a read to see what can be done to greatly improve performance without PEDs.
Spoiler alert: every time Allan played a game on my program, there was a 40+% chance that the game would rank as one of the Top 100 regular season games of his 839 game NBA career.
