[quote]And I'd be ok with it if others didnt use it as a way to cast negativity on our situation/team at every turn. [/quote] That's just noise. The same type of noise as people pointing to the first 20 games of a career as proof of anything. Each team wanted something different from the trade an...

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...

[quote]All I said I think trying to eliminate the midrange jumper is faulty logic[/quote] I know. I never said mid range needs to be eliminated either. But not everyone has a Dirk who can carry an offense with that weapon. Guys like Dirk and Aldridge can be focal points of successful offenses ...

This is something like what you want [link=(http://www.basketball-reference.com/leagues/NBA_2014.html)]LINK[/link] If you go to Shooting Stats, you can see the % of FGA by distance. The Spurs are balanced. Here's a unique visual representation of their shot chart for their best 5 [link=(...

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...

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. ...

re: 6 Trade Targets for the Pels - corndeaux
You've posted this trade all over the place. It's a dud for the Pelicans. Johnson is a player that is used to and needs the ball in his hands. He is a notorious ball stopper and ISO player. The Pelicans need guys who are the exact opposite of that. Gordon sacrificed a ton to start the year. Jo...

re: 6 Trade Targets for the Pels - corndeaux
I know. Numbers right? :lol: I'd probably do that trade. They just get more flexibility on the wing. Henderson is a competent rotation player. Taylor looked like one before his injury and legal trouble. Anderson is iffy, but he's no worse than Salmons....
