090–Bookin’ w/ Yaron Weitzman

This week, in honor of the restart of the 2019-20 NBA season, host Jason Jefferies is joined by Yaron Weitzman, author of Tanking to the Top: The Philadelphia 76ers and the Most Audacious Process in the History of Professional Sports, which is published by our friends at Hachette.  Topics of discussion include the 76ers decision to trade Allen Iverson, how a GM got fired for not being able to draft Kevin Durant, the Houston Rockets and the application of analytics to professional basketball, intentional tanking versus the prospect of permanent mediocrity, and much more.  Copies of Tanking to the Top can be ordered here with FREE SHIPPING.
