re: Cole/Q-Pon's 3 point shooting since joining NOLA - corndeaux
[quote]Who else of note went for $2 million or less?[/quote] The "of note" part is the trick. I don't think Pondexter (more $ obviously) is of note, but he's been a good fit. There's a reason Moore was talking about an Aminu type missing on this roster. They needed more help on the wing. Babb...

re: Cole/Q-Pon's 3 point shooting since joining NOLA - corndeaux
There were other guys out there besides Anderson and Jefferson that were also better than Salmons. Sitting tight on the wing was a risky play. I give Demps credit for finding help without giving anything up. But it was a large gamble to roll into [u]this[/u] season that way. He had no way of know...

re: Cole/Q-Pon's 3 point shooting since joining NOLA - corndeaux
[quote]not available at the time[/quote] It turned out okay, but that's a weird way of looking at it. There wasn't a wing better than Babbitt or Miller available? They couldn't have found someone other than Salmons?...

re: Holiday 18th best PG according to NBA personnel rankings - corndeaux
[quote]Then I look at a highlight video LINK and we are running that. Jrue fits pretty well in an offense built around AD.[/quote] Sort of. Its a highlight video, so grain of salt. But the Pels don't pass the ball or cut like that. They are among the bottom of the league in half court passes,...

re: Holiday 18th best PG according to NBA personnel rankings - corndeaux
[quote]Are these people that you trust to bring the ball up and effectively set up offense? Evans can create off the bounce, but the guy will also shut an offense down with isolation. [/quote] Sure. What does set up offense mean? Everyone runs some variation of PnR. Is it getting a big to screen ...

re: Holiday 18th best PG according to NBA personnel rankings - corndeaux
[quote]He's more of a combo guard than a PG to me.[/quote] I think that's fair. I also think you can say that about most of those guys. PG v SG distinction is largely gone. Can you create off the bounce for yourself and teammates? You're a pg. Harden, for example, could easily be on this list....

re: QPon as starting SG next season to Target a Good SF? - corndeaux
[quote]there really isn't much penetration[/quote] Does the offense do much more than have one guy run high PnR and pound the ball? If they were whipping the ball around and asking multiple guys to attack creases off the bounce, I'd be worried. But more off ball players seems like a good fit for ...

re: The Hawks Model: Gains From Health and Continuity - corndeaux
So I finally read the whole article. It just sort of pisses me off. The whole thing is one giant false equivalence. It is the same faulty logic used in "The Thunder built through the draft ergo the Pels should too" argument. The two paragraphs on dumping everyone and playing the free agent lotter...

[quote]Why would Chicago dump what you just described for Gordon and a 2016 late first rounder? [/quote] Yep. Butler is a good 2 way wing i.e. one of the most valuable player types in the league. If they don't have any faith in Rose (and, sadly, they shouldn't at this point), there is no reason ...

re: If you had to get rid of 1 player: Gordon, Holiday, or Evans, who would it be? - corndeaux
Since the trade: Holiday 71 GP Noel 66 GP I don't think Noel was the Pels pick and I don't think the Holiday trade was a disaster in concept. But Noel looks like a legit defensive anchor for a top 10 defense (the much mocked and threadbare Sixers). While the Pels improved and are more compet...

re: Monty - corndeaux
I think you hit on this in another thread: what is Monty's overall vision for this team? He has drawn up nice ATOs and sets for some time now. I'm still somewhat puzzled by the way they go about scoring in the half court, though. It's quite effective, but I'm just not exactly sure how. The defense, ...
