Podcast: Tim Connelly talks scouting, growing up in Baltimore and analytics

Ross Martin

Tim Connelly joined the Colorado Sports Guys to talk about how he got into the NBA, his persistence, and his background in scouting. We also talk about finding a balance in the almost adversarial relationship between the "human element" in basketball and the use of analytics that has swept the basketball landscape in recent years.

It was an amazing discussion that expanded our knowledge of Connelly the man, and gave us insight into his thought process as a General Manager.

A must listen for any Nuggets fan, or fan of basketball in general.
