Celtics Lab 74: Midrange theories, Celtics slumps, and Jaylen's value with Seth Partnow
When it comes to using analytics to get a fresh perspective on things, there are few in the game with a better angle on that than The Athletic's Seth Partnow. Former Head of Basketball Research for the Milwaukee Bucks and recent author of the new book "The Midrange Theory: Basketball's Evolution in the Age of Analytics" (pre-order it here!), Partnow joined your usual hosts Alex Goldberg, Cameron Tabatabaie, and Justin Quinn on the most recent edition of the CLNS Media podcast "Celtics Lab" to talk about his new book and all things analytics.
Get ready to have some of your assumptions about this team, its coaching, and even some especially contentious recently rumored trade proposals challenged on one of our favorite pods in recent memory.
If you are a regular listener to the Celtics Lab, it's clear you love the team, basketball, and quite possibly both, and we have met very few people who enjoy talking hoops more than Partnow.
Check out the clip embedded above to hear everything from what we expected out of Robert Williams III in the new Celtics offense to why some triple-doubles (we see you, Magic Johnson) are more meaningful than others.
