re: Great Perspective from Paul Flannery - corndeaux
[quote]It takes time to get there. The current makeup of the Pels has not been together long and has no playoff experience, basically. If you fire Monty, do you risk pissing off your best player and blowing up what we have built? Or do you get lucky and get a coach like Bud who can make a seamless t...

I thought all of the perimeter guys were poor last night, save Holiday. It's not a knock on effort or "they suck." Just got outplayed. It happens....

re: Asik has 0 4th Q minutes, Warriors grab 10 offensive boards - corndeaux
Asik is a Net -22 in 68 minutes in this series. GSW has a 110 ORating when he's on the floor, 108 when he's off. The Pels have an 88 ORating when he plays, 114 when he sits. Even the stingy Davis/Asik is at 109 DRating, 90 ORating. He's not a good option in this series....

Thats fair. But asking/expecting him to produce in this series during a crucial stretch when he's clearly not been good is pretty strange to me. ...

Great Perspective from Paul Flannery - corndeaux
In the Blender last night, he wrote this piece. Very good read. [link=(http://www.sbnation.com/nba/2015/4/24/8488473/pelicans-vs-warriors-crushing-loss-nba-playoffs-2015-anthony-davis)]LINK[/link] [quote]From the funeral atmosphere of the Pelicans' locker room where people talked in hushed whi...

re: Asik has 0 4th Q minutes, Warriors grab 10 offensive boards - corndeaux
Most teams go small in the playoffs. If there is one thing I hope this board learns, it is that playoff basketball is played via small ball. The Spurs gave Splitter big $ to be a rotation player behind Duncan in the playoffs. I'd be fine with it for Asik....

re: Asik has 0 4th Q minutes, Warriors grab 10 offensive boards - corndeaux
Exactly. The rebounding was bad. But the offense was awful. They had 103 w/ 5:10 left. They ended regulation w/ 108. ...

re: Asik has 0 4th Q minutes, Warriors grab 10 offensive boards - corndeaux
What? I'm looking at the play by play right now. Asik came in for Anderson at 3:29 down 2. Barnes grabbed an OREB on the next possession. The Warriors then hit a 3, had an and 1, and a dunk on the 3 possessions Asik played in OT. The Pels hit 2 jumpers (Gordon's foot on the line and Davis) bef...

re: Asik has 0 4th Q minutes, Warriors grab 10 offensive boards - corndeaux
I know that Asik seems like the answer, but I don't think it would have mattered. The Warriors would have switched him onto Curry or Thompson with PnR after PnR and he would have been out of the paint anyway. I doubt Kerr goes back to Bogut when they're cooking without him. Maybe that means Davi...

re: Good Pod after Game 2 - corndeaux
That's a good call with Babbit on both offense and defense. If Anderson is a no show again, that should be an option. I like Cunningham and think he's played well, but they just ignore him on offense. As well (somewhat surprisingly) as they have played on defense, I don't think the Pels can win a...

re: Has AD's one on one defense regressed? - corndeaux
Davis is very good on defense. He also makes mistakes on defense. He is still easily the best defensive player on the team even with those mistakes. He is a 3rd year big who literally has no limit to his game on the court. He sticks to guards and bangs in the post on a regular basis. That can be...

re: How much will Asik get next season? - corndeaux
[quote] be really interested to see if they move Ryno and as I mentioned try to get a lowpost/rugged 4 to compliment AD when we go small ball.[/quote] I'd hate to lose the stretch 4 option. Davis with that type of player is dynamite. The defense is a tire fire with Anderson. I do think they could...

re: How much will Asik get next season? - corndeaux
Thanks for the tweets. I know many advanced +/- rate Middleton highly. Some talk he could get well over 8 figures. Not too sure I'd match up there if I'm Milwaukee, but I'd certainly bluff that I would. Bottom line, all of those guys are likely out of play for the Pels. [quote]I'd take Asik at...

[quote]he didn't think Middleton staying in Milwaukee was a sure thing. [/quote] Where did you see that? Not doubting, just curious. I don't know if Asik gets much more than ~11M/year, if that. At that price, they should bring him back. It's an odd thing; they need a legit 5 for the regula...

re: Offseason chances that Ryno is dealt? - corndeaux
[quote]have a hard time believing any of Ryno's defensive numbers/metrics "work" too well.[/quote] They don't. But the Net difference between offense and defense is among the best on the team. It's something like the offense is 5 points better over 100 possessions. That is very good. Is it sustai...

re: Offseason chances that Ryno is dealt? - corndeaux
Very good recall. I don't think anyone expected Pondexter to be as good as he's been or Anderson to struggle as much as he has. Kudos to you. I'll repeat, career Anderson is not worth just dumping. This year's Anderson is. And I'll bring up Anderson's on court numbers with Davis: they are right a...
