For The Love of Basketball

The Layup

The NBA and WBNA have led the sports world in many ways this year -- from announcing a shutdown of their seasons due to Covid-19, to deliversing a virtual live draft (WNBA) to standing up for racial justice. In 2020, the NBA/WNBA have been first to put dynamic strategies in place when they were needed most.

Even after a successful bubble (/wubble) season and post-season for both leagues, the global pandemic continues to threaten what their 2021 season will look like.

This site aims to visualize elements of both leagues: the teams, the players and -- using machine-learning -- determine the impact Covid is having on player performance and other key areas of the game and the business of basketball.
