re: Just an Agonizing Reminder about Lillard - corndeaux
I would have been thrilled to move up to get Lillard. Some questions about competition, but he was a far better prospect than Rivers to me. Drummond was trickier, but after the top 3 he was worth a flyer for a team without a center. 10+Jack and top 8 protected 2013 for 6 and Babbitt (:lol:)? Or ...

re: Blazers- 114 @ Pels- 88- FINAL - We suck again - corndeaux
Defense has been putrid, but the few times it wasn't the Blazers hit tough shots. I'd like to see Asik on Aldridge and let Davis guard and, cheat off of, Freeland. ...

re: Midrange Jumpers: Who is taking and making the most midrange shots - corndeaux
The Blazers took 161 FGA from mid range. They hit them at 41%. Aldridge took a lower % of shots from mid range that series than he did for the season The Rockets took 66 and hit them at 45% The Blazers hit their 3s at 36%. The Rockets hit the same number of attempts of 3s at 31%. That's 7 ...

re: Midrange Jumpers: Who is taking and making the most midrange shots - corndeaux
[quote]The same thing can be said about a 3pt shooter to carry a team.[/quote] No it can't. Almost every team in the league has multiple guys who can hit 3s at league average rate (35%). Even league average from 3 is better than all but a few mid range guys. There's even some evidence that just s...

[quote]not the better concept, the better move.[/quote] That's sort of the point though. No one can give you a tangible move because no one has any clue what would have been available. Yes, that includes worse moves too. If the fan base is now saying give them a few years to grow or the west ...

re: mavs in serious talks for Rondo - corndeaux
Yep. It doesn't make much sense for the Mavs. Perhaps the Rockets, but even there I don't see that much of a reason to do it other than Rondo was really really good 3 years ago. Rondo isn't what he used to be. If Wright and a late 1st is a baseline offer, Ainge outsmarted himself and waited too ...

re: Celtics aggressively shopping Jeff Green - corndeaux
I wouldn't be shocked if they moved Bledsoe for some frontcourt help. He's a very good player locked in at a reasonable contract through his prime. Dragic doesn't have much value since he's a UFA this summer and Thomas isn't bringing back anything they want. G. Green is also a UFA this summer, s...

re: Midrange Jumpers: Who is taking and making the most midrange shots - corndeaux
[quote]Morey ball is overrated[/quote] I don't think so. They certainly take it to the extreme, but shooting 3s opens up the court more than mid range. It's geometry- putting guys in corners and letting them shoot stretches a defense to a breaking point. Mid range isn't useless. And having a g...

re: Who needs rebounds? - corndeaux
Be interesting to see what effect increases in OREB v DREB have. That is, did the Pelicans have a substantial jump in one category when they grabbed more rebounds? Or was it a jump in both categories? Or just random? What about the Kings? What, if any, is the league wide trend?...

re: Can this team win in the playoffs? - corndeaux
I said it before: the roster is built for the playoffs, not the regular season. You can play a limited rotation in the playoffs, not over 82 games. Ultimately they lose because Monty. But the roster, aside from a big wing, is good enough to win a playoff series...

re: There is interest in Tyreke but Pels want to keep him - corndeaux
I agree that Monty finally started staggering some. Way too late considering he had a year to think about it. Also agree that Monty will not use Holiday in that role. To be clear, I'm not advocating starting holiday on the bench; just pull him earlier in the first so you can bring him back to start ...

re: There is interest in Tyreke but Pels want to keep him - corndeaux
Yeah. The big thing to me is the 6 point differential. That's pretty good for 800 minutes, regardless of defensive limitations. [quote]The wonky rotations will just have to work.[/quote] It would be nice, if/when Gordon returns, if Monty staggered the guards more. Anderson can't do it alone. T...

[quote]Evans plays better when AD or Anderson isn't in the lineup dating back to last season [/quote] I see that with Davis, but I disagree on Anderson. To me, Evans struggled because Monty did what he's done with Anderson this year- left alone to play with scrubs. With Anderson: 408 MP la...

re: Who is the best defender, AD, Jrue, or Asik? - corndeaux
Asik by far. Then Davis, then Holiday. Davis makes more mistakes, but as a big man he brings so much more value defensively than Holiday. ...
