The Dwight Effect: A New Ensemble of Interior Defense Analytics for the NBA

May as well post it here, too (this was originally posted in the Magic vs. Grizzlies Post Game Recap, in the comments section). This is a very interesting research paper presented at this year's MIT Sloan Sports Conference, which outlines a new way of quantifying a defender's interior defense. The user "3.3.seconds" gave a very interesting comment, saying that this method is not without its flaws. For instance, PF rate must be accounted for the amount of times a defender sends an offensive player to the foul line. Also, Andrea Bargnani (lol) is identified as elite in one of the metrics presented here... Enjoy!
