STATS NBA 2017-18: An Advanced Look Into The Offseason Shakeup


The ground has most certainly shaken in the East with the most unlikely of trades between conference frontrunners.

Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward have landed in Boston to join forces with the latter’s former coach. LeBron James has been dealt an unlikely top-three scorer.

Transcontinentally, 2016-17’s DIYers James Harden and Russell Westbrook have been given some serious help. Or is it the other way around: Chris Paul, Paul George and Carmelo Anthony still don’t have a true last name among them, but are they the main beneficiaries?

Yeah, there’s a Jimmy Butler-Tom Thibodeau reunion on in Minnesota, but the Timberwolves also brought in a point guard who may better suit their bigs.

Lob City is no more, but what it ultimately comes down to is everyone’s still chasing Dub City. Come along with STATS and the most reliable and fastest NBA data available as we take a deep diagnostic dive to weave select stories of how the pursuit may go down in 2017-18.

STATS NFL 2017: An Innovative Look into the 2017 Season


Why did Bill Belichick spend money on a running back? How does toxic differential explain the Patriots’ latest Super Bowl victory? And – hold on a second – what is toxic differential? How valuable was Mike Evans? What does DeSean Jackson do for him and Jameis Winston? What makes Aaron Rodgers – well – Aaron Rodgers?

These are questions that used to only be addressed with inadequate and antiquated metrics. They left those asking the questions with unquantifiable answers that essentially amounted to a pass-fail grade from the expert’s eye test. With STATS ICE and X-Info, anyone settling for that eye test isn’t completing the job.

STATS Data Feeds: How They Measure Up


STATS commissioned the Northwestern University McCormick School of Engineering’s Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science to provide the industry’s first independent measurement study of live sports data feed services with an emphasis on speed and accuracy. STATS’ data feeds were evaluated by Northwestern with direct access before STATS and two competitors – one North America-based and one Europe-based – were compared on an indirect level via 40 associated websites. Northwestern measured various events from live NBA and Premier League games from six locations across the globe in April and May 2017.

The study provides existing and potential clients with a third-party assessment seconding STATS’ claims as an industry leader, and it gives STATS further information off of which to structure the future of data delivery. Providing clients with near-instantaneous data is the goal, and that’s what the company’s emerging solution STATS Now delivers via cloud-based processing.
