And no wonder! Teams have an immense amount of detailed, quantifiable information to draw upon. They have powerful incentives for making good decisions. And yet, they keep making the same mistakes over and over again...mistakes you’d think they’d learn how to avoid! Now, two leading sports economists reveal those mistakes in basketball, baseball, football, and hockey–and explain why sports decision-makers never seem to learn their lessons. The next quantum leap beyond Moneyball, this book offers powerful new insights into all human decision-making. Because if multimillion dollar sports teams are getting it wrong this badly, how do you know you’re not? • Do better coaches really win more? Phil Jackson versus everyone else • The “hot hand” and other figments of the imagination Enduring myths of on-court and on-field performance • How old is too old? Are teams playing too many athletes who are past their prime? • Are black quarterbacks underpaid? The curious cases of Donovan McNabb and Brett Favre
