Analytics will have a greater impact on some teams choices tonight more than others. ESPN's Ben Alamar surveyed executives to find out who in the NBA uses draft analytics the best.
Shaquille O'Neal joined draft prospects Mikal Bridges, Jaren Jackson Jr. and Marvin Begley III to host a day of mentorship for teens in Brooklyn with The Y and provide apparel from JCPenney. O'Neal was asked about LeBron James' free agency. He believes that if James' decision hinges on putting himself in the best position to win a title, it will be difficult for James to beat the Golden State Warriors. "Golden State turning themselves into a dynasty is making it hard for other teams to compete so he's either going to say, ‘I want to get four before (the Warriors) get four' and do a quick fix or Cleveland's going to have to do a lot of phone calls and lot of moves to get him the squad he wants," O'Neal said. "But it's going to be difficult. You have three superstars on one team that actually play the right way. Even with LeBron (on a roster), if you don't play the right way it doesn't matter."
