DBR Podcast Episode #323 - Delayed Reactions

On this episode of the DBR Podcast, we get into a few NBA topics before discussing Brendan Marks’s and Seth Davis’s article at The Athletic this week about the process Duke took to promote Jon Scheyer to head coach of the men’s basketball team. Quick disclaimer: we recorded this episode on Wednesday 6/23, so our analysis may be stale, but hopefully not outdated.

First, we dive into combine measurements, where Duke guys ran the gamut from long (DJ Steward) to large (Matthew Hurt). If you want to know why your Duke-centric optimisim about Duke players in the draft is not reflected in mock drafts, you may find evidence in the results herein.
