Intangibles

Rick Carlisle, former NBA player and coach, is telling Bill James that there are some things that you just can’t measure. You can’t measure a player’s heart, he says. We hear that all the time. In the previous panel, however, somebody asked Bill what teams should be measuring and quantifying that they aren’t now. He said that a record of a player’s makeup or character would be immensely valuable. So who’s right, Rick Carlisle or Bill James?
