The Prize for Winning the TrueHoop Smackdown

Posted on October 6, 2009 by


A few months ago I won the 2009 TrueHoop Stat Geek Smackdown.  And here is my prize:




Henry Abbott did give me some choices. Last year Justin Kubatko was given a Greg Oden jersey.  After some conversation, I decided that I would like a banner in my office that would demonstrate to my students that at one point in my life as an economist, I made some predictions that actually came true.  So I asked Henry for a Pistons banner that he graciously signed.   And now, as you can see, the banner is in my office and I am sure many of my students (some? one or two?) will be very impressed each time they visit in the future.
