I finished reading Mathletics, by Wayne Winston, about a week ago. It is a much more technical book than Wages of Wins, which is itself a technical book. Wayne Winston does a lot of linear weights analysis to determine which sports have the most consistent performers, and which sports have the least consistent performers.

He found that basketball players performance are most dependent on how they performed last year. Football players, the least. And baseball, somewhere in between.

He obviously had many other findings, but the basketball section was the most interesting.
