Today on BRING IT IN, TrueHoop’s Henry Abbott and David Thorpe talk about truth seeking in media and assess the latest batch of young players.

Did the Celtics’ defense do anything wrong to allow Luka’s crazy game-winner?

Recent articles about a decade or two of bad behavior from Robert Sarver and Neil Olshey make clear how rare it is for journalists to share bad news about powerbrokers.

Now that the NBA is permitting much rougher defense, the Nets might have an advantage.

    BRING IT IN: Chris Jones

    59:58

    Today on a special BRING IT IN, TrueHoop’s Henry Abbott and David Thorpe speak with Chris Jones, a former writer-at-large for Esquire magazine, winner of two National Magazine Awards and author of the new book The Eye Test: A Case for Human Creativity in the Age of Analytics. It was a lot of fun! Jones argues that data’s supremacy in our daily lives has led to a dangerous strain of anti-expertise and not enough reliance on the wisdom of experience. Henry wanted Jones to show him where, on the bear, the data hurt him. Then Jones told a crazy tale about being choked out by Connor McGregor and another about why Canadians are more like angry wet koalas than you might have thought. This is a public episode.
