https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/51QbGwmAhzL._SX329_BO1,204,203,200_.jpgThe NBA champion Golden State Warriors are considered a dynasty in the making as well as a well-run business, successful in ways far beyond Steph Curry’s three pointers and Draymond Green’s suffocating defense. With Silicon Valley venture capitalist, Joe Lacob, at the helm, they recognize that they are ‘a sports, media and technology entity’. They use data, science and technology in new ways to enhance the players’ efficiency, improve the fan experience and fatten the bottom line. Some years ago we learned about baseball’s ‘Moneyball’ and now just down the road from the Oakland Athletics we get introduced to the concept of ‘Betaball: How Silicon Valley and Science Built One of the Greatest Basketball Teams in History’. Author Erik Malinowski is our guest.
