They're Playing Basketball? Sam Lobel

It's not whether you win or lose. It's how you play the game. But, who says you have to play the game the way everyone else does? An experiment in equality inspires an unconventional coach and a reclusive math professor to revolutionize the game of basketball through egalitarianism and algorithms. This experiment becomes known as "The System" and it is an unyielding attack of mathematics against conventional sports wisdom—a frenzied game of ordered chaos that transforms a rag-tag team of scholars into conference champions. Who needs starters when you have statistics?
