The teams that use the most sports analytics according to ESPN are indeed the teams that have won the most in the last five years (8.46 wins). On the flip side, the teams that use the least sports analytics are also the teams that win the least games (6.85 wins). Although this does not prove anything, it is an interesting outcome and an outcome that the sports nerds will love.
So take that Charles Barkley… You were wrong on sports analytics in this study.
