Millennials Are Not Ruining The NBA
Hot Takedown

Welcome to the latest episode of Hot Takedown, our podcast where the hot sports takes of the week meet the numbers that prove them right or tear them down. On this week’s show (Jan. 4, 2016), we discuss the NFL playoffs and whether this year’s NFL coaching hot seat is any hotter than usual. Then, Carl Bialik and Jody Avirgan look at how the sport of Ultimate Frisbee is trying to embrace stats. Plus an investigation into whether millennials are ruining — ruining! — the NBA.
