re: NBAPA wants NBA to use new TV money to cover health insurance for former players - corndeaux
I would imagine everyone in this thread knows at least one person who is living beyond their means. I know people from better family backgrounds and education than many pro athletes that are in ridiculous debt. The amount of $$ makes athletes stand out, but the concept is the same....

re: Can Holiday be our Steve Nash? - corndeaux
Of course. Anything is possible. Do you really see Holiday on par with Dallas Nash in terms of passing and court vision/awareness? Do people really think they need a Nash/Curry to make Gentry's offense go?...

[quote]Kieff would be a good fit.[/quote] Eh. I don't know. I'm not sold him on being as versatile as you are. I think he's a 4. And that he and Davis would occupy a lot of the same space on offense- mid range to the paint. Would he be willing to play second fiddle to Davis after a breakout year?...

[quote]Was Nash all of those things at 24yrs old?[/quote] This pisses me off. Its like I'm attacking Holiday when I think he's a fine player, but miscast in the way this thread and most Pels fans want him to play. At 24, Nash was in his 3rd year and struggling to find his way in the NBA. A...

re: Can Holiday be our Steve Nash? - corndeaux
This is where the numbers lie. I think they bring much that we can't see and, clearly, I am willing to use them. But there is much more to evaluating than looking at stats. Holiday isn't the passer Dallas Nash was. Holiday isn't the on court thinker Dallas Nash was. Holiday isn't the floor leader...

re: Cunningham back to Pels... 3 yrs/$9M - corndeaux
[quote]It's far easier to set the defense on a make than a miss. On a corner 3, your shooter is not able to get back defensively and he's too far away to provide much rebounding at all. You need two other guys getting back defensively, which basically leaves you with only 2 guys available for reboun...

re: Cunningham back to Pels... 3 yrs/$9M - corndeaux
48-52. To me, it's tough because of shifting roles due to those injuries. My concerns: I don't know if Q shoots 43% from 3 again, but just his career (36%) will be good. Curious to see how much run Cunningham/Cole get if they have healthy Anderson/Jrue. But 50 wins should be the low end of what ...

re: Cunningham back to Pels... 3 yrs/$9M - corndeaux
SP, I don't think it's wrong to say the bench is vastly improved from even a year ago. I do think it's a stretch to extrapolate that 28 game roster to a .64 winning % over an 82 game season. But, I may have totally misunderstood the point. [quote]Add in the coaching upgrades, status quo might not...

re: Cunningham back to Pels... 3 yrs/$9M - corndeaux
[quote]My guess (because we can't possibly know) would be at least 50 wins. Not 45. IMO, we are not bringing back a 45 win team. Just like Atlanta wasn't bringing back a 38 win team last year.[/quote] I agree with that completely. With reasonable health, less than 50 should be a bit of a disappoi...

[quote]What I'm saying that I believe this roster going into this season can win 50 games IF we have at least decent luck with health. I believe Gentry's faster pace will be far more effective for this team. I think they'll be better coached overall and should be more efficient on both ends. I a...

Well yeah. If reasonable health, they should be around 50 wins. That's not what he said, unless I'm misreading it. The point was they had that record w/ those injuries. I have no faith that is sustainable...

re: ~C~O~N~T~I~N~U~I~T~Y~ - corndeaux
There's nothing wrong with start you're saying about continuity. But the Warriors comparison is problematic. They were a top 5 defense and a mid pack (w/ Steph freaking Curry) offense 2 years ago. They had back to back 50 win seasons, including a trip to the 2nd round where they scared the Spurs....
