Friday and Saturday in Boston, the 13th annual MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference presented by ESPN convenes students and industry pros to talk numbers and business.
It figures that ESPN once again will provide a strong presence at MIT Sloan, sending more than a dozen panelists representing several platforms.
Conversations about sports analytics in particular and the sports business world as a whole will drive the discussions.
But Front Row asked several of the panelists to get granular and answer this: What’s your favorite sports number and why?
Here are some responses:
Doug Kezirian, Daily Wager host
Michele Steele, SportsCenter anchor and reporter
Seth Walder, ESPN Analytics writer
Paul Pierce, ESPN NBA analyst
Mina Kimes, senior writer, ESPN The Magazine
Kristie Blasi, senior director, ESPN Stats & Info Group (SIG)
