Dunking: “What is rarely addressed is whether or not dunking, as opposed to laying it up, can help your team, both in the standings and on the bottom line. Let’s address the win column first: are teams that dunk more likely to win?” Look away for a moment, coaches who preach fundamentals. The answer – after looking at NBA stats over the last two years – is yes. “Dunk totals also represent a general aggressiveness: a willingness to drive through the lane, pick up fouls, and to try for the offensive rebound, as well as athletic ability – all things that a good team should have.” [Harvard Sports Analysis]
