Checking in on LeBron


Now the that season is underway let’s check in on how Cleveland and the Lakers are doing since LeBron changed teams. LeBron is arguably the best player in the NBA and a tremendous addition to a team ... a real difference maker.  He began his career with the Cavaliers, then moved to the Miami Heat, then back to the Cavaliers, and now he's moved to the Lakers.

In this activity students read graphs and use measures of central tendency as they compare the records of the Miami Heat, the Cleveland Cavilers, and the Los Angeles Lakers with and without LeBron.  How many wins per season can we expect from the Lakers now that they have LeBron and just how many wins is LeBron worth? Give students some time to think about & discuss ways that we can measure LeBron's effect on the performance of a team.  Here is a link to a video clip about Lebron moving to the Lakers that you might use to introduce the context of this activity. 

For Adventurer members we have an editable Word docx, an Excel file of the data and charts, and solutions.
