The 2024 MLS Analytics Survey reveals Colorado as a leader in analytics use among 24 clubs, while the Celtics of 2023-24 are shown to be one of the best NBA teams historically, and the NHL's most successful teams are the Montreal Canadiens, Toronto Maple Leafs, and Detroit Red Wings. Jordan Westburg of the Orioles has defied conventional metrics with strong performance despite poor plate discipline, termed "The Westburg Paradox."
