Money-basket-ball

I finally got my brother, who is a high school basketball coach and lifelong baseball fan, to read Moneyball, and he recently emailed me this:

"I am reading Moneyball, and wondered is there any type of "sabremetrics regarding basketball, debunking old theories of successful teams, stats that are most important, etc?"

Anybody feel like weighing in on this?  I'll post my response to him as the first comment.
