re: post play - corndeaux
[quote]asik/ajinca/others issues around the rim[/quote] Finishing at the rim and posting up can be different things. The Pels, like almost everyone else, have a bunch of guys that simply "can't do it" on the block. I never want to see a post entry pass to Asik. Draw and kick is different, and a b...

re: Not too excited about the news coming out of SPECTRE - corndeaux
Writers strike killed Quantum. But the inherent flaw was that the movie's purpose seemed to be the coda at the end and closure for Bond from Casino. Maybe that premise could have worked rearranged differently, but it was certainly a botched execution. Skyfall was weird to me. More of a Bond homag...

re: where would you rank AD - corndeaux
*swept Harden is better right now. Harden is a phenomenal offensive player. An original. And being a creator counts for something more than being mainly a finisher. Yet, when Davis improves defensively and becomes an anchor, he will be better than Harden. That could happen as soon as this year. ...

re: Start Dante Cunningham at the 3 - corndeaux
[quote]overthink bench roles and the 2nd unit[/quote] I believe there will be much smarter staggering of players than we've seen. I'm hoping the all bench units are ditched, like Kerr did in Oakland It's intersting because there is probably enough depth now that Monty just might have been able...

re: 2016: The year of the Wowzer Deals!!!! (Pelicans Future) - corndeaux
A few things: Durant won't sign an extension because the money is less and it has to be at least 3 years (IIRC). That is, he can't do a LeBron 1+1 via extension. That Denver got two guys (wings no less) is interesting. But no max player will sign an extension barring a CBA change. Davis signed a ...

re: 2016: The year of the Wowzer Deals!!!! (Pelicans Future) - corndeaux
OKC is the clear front runner from the outside looking in. No one knows how pissed Durant/Russ are at ownership for Harden (still likely since they wouldn't let Waiters wear #13), but if healthy they are a 60 win team and perennial title contender. I would imagine they at least got a blessing from t...

[quote]Evans also flies in the face of the running team that Demps was supposedly building. He just not very effective in the open court. [/quote] That's not always true.

[quote]lot easier to change coaches than a roster.[/quote] Yeah. More that it seems it was 2 years spent with a coach that didn't buy in. That is sub optimal. As for Evans, it was always a strange move coming after Holiday. But I'll throw this out there: to me, Holiday isnt your classic lead b...

re: What are the expectations this year? - corndeaux
Thats all fine. IMO, Demps put the team together to play uptempo. This is the time to see how it works. Making those moves is fine, why he did it with knowledge of Monty as a coach is the difficult question. It's just fascinating to me that a Pels blog seems to be so worried about legitimizing wh...

re: What are the expectations this year? - corndeaux
This is a little misleading. You have to look at 14 and 16 separately from 18 and 21. Comparing the former to the Pels is silly IMO. More interesting case with 18 and 21. For example, 2014 was #26; the Heat were coming off 4 Finals trips with Napier fan LeBron James entering UFA. Pels fans talkin...

re: Sign perkins but let Jimmer walk.... - corndeaux
That's not quite right. Babbitt was on the team after Anderson went down. They could have slotted him in to a bench role and paired him with Aminu, who was in and out of the dog house. That pairing, while not good, at least makes sense. Once Anderson and Holiday were injured, that season was abo...

re: Sign perkins but let Jimmer walk.... - corndeaux
But the Mavs had a good roster last year? Monty chose to play him minutes as a wing regularly. Monty chose not to use him as a small ball 4 regularly. Other roster pieces are irrelevant. Aminu was clearly not up to the task of playing the role Monty wanted for him, yet they kept rolling it out t...
