This is a pretty cute little programming exercise, but at a scale that most people aren't going to reach for.
When down 3 points with 30 seconds left and possession of the ball is it better to take a "hard" 3 or go for an "easy" 2, foul hope for another possession ?
Cute. I like that he got LeBron to introduce the video.
