Westbrook > Davis

Below are the L.A. Lakers’ stats from last night’s NBA season opener against the Golden State Warriors. I readily concede that this is a small sample size (one game), but combined with last year’s statistics, maybe it’s Anthony Davis–and not Russell Westbrook–who should be traded? (At the very least, Westbrook is less injury-prone and thus a more reliable overall athlete than AD.) Change my mind!

  1. Suggestion (Disclaimer: this may be the wrong approach)- Collect the stats of each player’s performances over the course of a couple of games. Then calculate the performance of both players for the Shapley Value (I have heard that this method is sometimes applied to the performance of marketing strategies in business, why not in sports?).

    A novel application of Game Theory to sports; I could be completely off base with this suggestion.
