Shane Battier, and regressing to the mean

Former Memphis Grizzlies player Shane Battier had some interesting data-focused comments to share with the media after Game 7 of the NBA finals.

When asked by an ESPN reporter if he’d paid attention to the numbers to know how much of a shooting slump he was in, Battier brushed it off by saying essentially that things would smooth out over time. That he would “regress to the mean.”

“My mantra was I’ll regress to the mean, and I believe in that,” he said, suggesting that slumps and streaks are more aberrations than they are indicative. “I knew I’m a better shooter than the numbers right now.”

Here’s the clip, via Business Insider.
