Word of the Day: Analysis

analysis (n.) - a method of studying the nature of something or of determining its essential features and their relations

From Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel:

Stan Van Gundy believes in numbers.

The Orlando Magic coach studies statistics. He pours over figures. He often relies on objective data to confirm or dispel his gut feelings.

[....]

The notion of Van Gundy as a numbers-cruncher flies in the face of the image he presents during games. He perhaps is best-known as an intense, emotional coach who shouts instructions to players in a raspy voice.

Yet Van Gundy takes a reasoned, almost scientific, approach to many aspects of his work. Statistics enable him refine his own thinking and convey concepts to his players. In that way, he bases his coaching style as much on objective data as he does on subjective perceptions.

Some fine work by Robbins here, and I confess this post is just a fancy way of encouraging you to read it. Go.
