For those of you who missed it, and judging by the game thread it was most of you, Tyreke had a huge night 41 points 9 rebounds 8 assists 3 steals with 1 turnover and no fouls. But beyond the numbers he just dominated on a night when MVP candidate Kevin Durant disappeared. Tyreke also was coming o...

The Steimsma Effect
Posted by TigerinATL on 4/11 at 5:00 pm
The Bird Writes took a look at player efficiency with and without Steamer in the lineup and the Stiemsma Effect is pretty stunning. Every player except for the shooters (Ryno, Morrow, Babbit) shoot anywhere from 2% to 20% worse when playing with Stiemsma. [quote]So why does Monty Williams favor ...

Sometimes AA feels like a mockumentary, but other times it really makes you think. The Puma Punku episode from Season 4 is one such episode. Puma Punku is a site in Bolivia where they seem to make a pretty good case for the architecture being built using machine tools rather than hand tools. Just...

This is not intended to be a Bash Monty thread, there are plenty of those to go around. But a lot of people buoyed by the recent wins are trying to point to winning basketball as proof that Monty's changing, but I'm still seeing too many bad habits not dying. It's pretty obvious that this rost...
