Kobe Bryant is a career 45% shooter and is known as the biggest chucker in the game.

There's the quote I was using. And I still don't see where I EXPLICITLY said it was you. Do you have to try to be this ignorant or does it come naturally?

I still want you to back up your "I guarantee I know more than all of you" comment.


you're putting words in my mouth yet again. I never once said that I know more than "all of you". that simply isn't true. I am no better than anyone.

I said to techchampion that "I know more than you and I can guarantee you that". - which is true especially considering this dude thinks that Kobe Bryant is the second best player ever LOL.

don't put words in my mouth.

quote:

Rivers was drafted to be an off-the-bench 2-guard that could bring the ball up every now and then, but with Gordon's injury, he was thrust into the starting 2-guard right off the bat and is floundering badly, though it is still early.

In the long run, is this good for him to essentially go through a trial by fire or could this wreck his confidence for the forseeable future?


He has high IQ so I'd have to assume his development is progressing faster with the experience. I don't think him coming off the bench would have done much for him as his shot just isn't falling at all and probably still wouldn't be if Gordon was healthy. It's going to take time to get used to the league and the more minutes he plays the faster he'll adjust.

let me just say this isn't a truism for the NBA

young guys need NBA coaching to develop their skillset early on. early play isn't that important

sometimes early play is a deterrent, b/c guys become more focused on the games themselves and not working on their skills

I hope he stays hurt. absolutely hate the guy

Classy

This is hard to believe coming from your classy self that looks down upon the "trash" that moves from the upper bowl to the lower bowl in the empty Arena.

You must be a blast to hang around.

Thinking you're better than other people, calling people trash and thieves, and wishing your team's best player "stays hurt" because you hate him for some unknown reason.

Keep being miserable of keep trolling, chief

My bad, he's considered a top 15 player by those 2 but not a top 12. He must really suck.


Will you please stop using this to pump up Gordon? I agree he is a good player, but the top 12 guys didn't play on the US Olympic team. D. Wade, D. Howard, D. Rose, B. Griffin, Rondo all couldn't or didn't play and they are all top 15 or so. That doesn't even include international guys that played for other countries (Dirk, both Gasols, Parker). Plus, guys like Chandler and Davis that aren't elite (yet in Davis' case), but were needed for fit. It's a horrible point and you're just wrong everytime you say it..

Fine, top 30. What an insult. He must be so bad.

45% FG from a shooting guard would've put that player in the top 5 FG% amongst SGs last season

But I thought he was just a chucker that had padded stats on bad teams? Your numbers are probably skewed anyway since he misses a lot of games.

This actually isn't true. 45% would have put him either 6th or 8th depending on rounding up or down (it's not even top 20 among nonqualifers). He would have finished behind G. Henderson and G. Hayward, who are no where near considered good players. So I'm not sure what you guys are really debating.

Not debating anything. The guy acted like 45% FG from a "chucker" is bad.
