The NY Times reports how Harvard signed Jeremy Linn. This is a rare case where UCLA messed up. It is usually excellent at evaluating and importing talent! In this age of “Big Data“, how do you quantify intangibles? James Heckman is working hard to “quantify” soft skills in his economics research. Will talent scouts figure out how to do this? I am eager to see how Lin and ”Melo” share the ball. The Knicks should consider cutting Carmelo Anthony.
