Link: Share unreasonably and a ball will enter a hoop more often, if the defenders don’t embrace the same no-ballhoggery wisdom

Analyzing Effects Of Hoops Ball Hog | Research – ISNS

“In basketball…you get the best results — and the highest score — if you share the ball more than seems reasonable. … Sharing the ball, even to the extent of letting the less talented players shoot, is equivalent to spreading traffic over multiple roads instead of cramming all the cars onto any one road.”

Leave it to game theory to generate the chance for me to write “ballhoggery.”
