Revisiting the D.R.A.F.T 

June, 24, 2010

Today's winners in Stats & Analytics:

Al-Farouq Aminu, Shaquille O'Neal, Marcus Thornton

Today's losers:

Michael Olowokandi, Brandon Rush and hopefully not DeMarcus Cousins

Last year, Insider, led by my Giant Killers colleague Jordan Brenner and hoops genius Tom Haberstroh, launched the D.R.A.F.T. Intitiative -- Data-Related Analysis For Truth -- to dissect the NBA draft from every conceivable angle. Today, we're going to revisit and update this initiative. When you get into arguments at your draft party tonight, at least you'll be armed with the latest in APBRmetric knowledge.
