Quick Poll: Are you interested in a comparison of measurement data to see if we are getting more athletic? Or other nerdy junk like that?

Wingspan and jumping ability can allow you to get a lot of rebounds, even if you don't have bulk. Mandatory Credit: Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

Hello ladies and gentlemen -- I spent a great deal of my day trying to encourage positive growth and strengthen the human body. And my #1 hobby is sports, which requires athletics. Over the last few seasons the Jazz appear to be getting better athletes: either as a product of draft strategy, free agency, trades, or off-season improvement (P3, for example).

I'm collecting as much data as possible right now on our teams (this upcoming one, and many others from previous season); particularly looking at things like draft data, sizes, speeds, injuries, and age. Because I'm a crazy person I'm also grouping this data in new and insane ways, like finding if there is a relationship between the measurements and on-court performance.

So, in effect, I'll have enough data to plot trends, like are the Jazz getting more athletic? How important is wingspan for a wing player's help defense? Is it more important for man-defense? How big of a deal are cumulative injuries on a player's athleticism? And so on . . .

Would you guys be interested in seeing the results? (If not, I"ll just keep collecting it and publish the data in a medical journal instead)
