In this ninth episode of TBW’s Basketball by Association podcast, Arky Shea and Joel C. Cordes are joined by bballwriters.com‘s Adam Spinella to examine how much bias plays a part in scouting players prior to the 2020 NBA Draft.
Centered around Adam’s “2020 NBA Draft: On Bias, Tyrese Maxey & Evaluating Shooting”, we discuss how unchecked bias can be damaging for both coaches and media while using specific player and skill examples.
Yet, not all bias is bad, provided the evaluator puts it into the proper perspective.
Arky, Joel and Adam then discuss players from the recent past who shattered their own evaluating biases.
