re: Is there a worse basketball coach at a Power 5 school than Rick Barnes? - BoardReader
[quote]Couldn't make it out of the second round with Kevin Durant and hasn't made a Sweet 16 since 2008. His players on teams since then have included Damion James, Dexter Pittman, Jordan Hamilton, Avery Bradley, Corey Joseph, Tristan Thompson, Myck Kabongo, and J'Covan Brown. Is there any coach...

re: How are the Patriots always "there" at the end of the year? - BoardReader
People give the Patriots grief for the quality of the AFC East, but they also have a hand in just how bad it is; think of all the years a Buffalo, a NYJ, or a Miami has been at that 7-9, 8-8, 9-7 type might-be-breaking-through-to-compete, and a loss to New England has sent them reeling into a tail...

re: Kevin Love is a terrible defender (even worse than I thought) - BoardReader
[quote]disagree here. A player that is sieve defensively will be exploited by great teams to the extent that he hurts his team. Secondly, open shots are great for the other four players, but that is what the defense wants (i.e. "make someone else beat you") [/quote] The Great Defender affects the...

[quote]I think you aren't realizing the impact bad defense can have. If the player you are guarding becomes great each night, that's a problem.[/quote] No, I fully realize the impact both bad-- and great-- defense can have. One, though, frankly matters more than the other. In the college game...

[quote]I disagree that he is a Top 15 player. I would rather have a great defensive player who scores on putbacks and dunks than Love. I like Ibaka more than Love.

re: Kevin Love is a terrible defender (even worse than I thought) - BoardReader
As a Wolves fan, I feel it necessary to comment on a number of things in this thread. Yes, Love has limits as an on ball defender that are obvious; he does take off plays, off the ball as well, which doesn't even let him realize his maximum potential as a limited defender. That said, somethin...
