re: Tom Thibodeau "on the hotseat" - corndeaux
I think over the past few years, it bears out. Noah and Deng played tons of minutes since he got there. I get that his options are limited and he feels he has to ride some guys. And I admire his desire to win and his ability to do so. A hell of a coach. But, to me, part of being a coach is tak...

re: Tom Thibodeau "on the hotseat" - corndeaux
[quote]think the one criticism of Thibs defense is that it often has players like Noah pulled away from the basket[/quote] There's been some of that this year, but not because of the scheme. Rather that Noah has to guard 4s (and stretch 4s) because Gasol can't move anymore. Thibs scheme has re...

re: Ryan Anderson.. wtf - corndeaux
[quote]He shot 30%, went 0/3 from 3, and grabbed 7 boards. He didn't help much at all.  EG was off last night, but lets just say in 25 games this year, EG has shot at or above 40% 13 times. [/quote] 7 boards in 29 minutes isn't helping? That's an odd argument. Gordon shot worse last night, ...

re: Ryan Anderson.. wtf - corndeaux
I thought Anderson was fine on defense last night in the 4th. Nuggets shot 43% from the field and had 3 OREB. Only 2 FT. The Pels couldn't find a good shot, much less make one. That was the problem. Would I have been upset if they had gone to Asik? No. I've said before Asik should see more time i...

re: Pelicans 85 VS Nuggets 93 ~ Final ~ Official Game Thread ~ Yack - corndeaux
[quote]He doesn't suck. Saying that is foolish. Yea, he's not good defensively, but he's one of the only legit shooters the team has. He opens the court up for everyone else. [/quote] Voice of reason. His defense wasn't even that bad down the stretch. It was silly to keep him in when Den...

re: Time to part ways with Holiday? - corndeaux
I don't think you can get a first for Holiday, let alone a first and open up cap space. No real market. Jackson is too similar to Evans for me. Score first, ball dominant guard with a limited jumper. He's a good player, but not a good fit in NO ...

re: Could missing Jrue be - corndeaux
To me, a good bit of the ball movement has been involving Davis more in the middle of the floor. He is LeBronish in that he makes the "right" play with the ball most of the time. He was swinging the ball to an open man on the wing, passing up jumpers to find Asik down low, etc. When your MVP, sup...

re: 4-0 with Pondexter and AD - corndeaux
Actually getting an NBA rotation quality wing makes a big difference. The Knicks and Sixers losses are still terrible though. Those 6 guys may be seriously flawed without Davis, but they are still enough to be beat those 2 teams. Combining those 2 rosters, can we find 6 better players than wh...

re: Monty's rotations in the 4th - corndeaux
[quote]The double team on Carmelo a few games was horrible. He's a chucker who doesn't hit a great percentage if he's not muscling a guy down low and we double him from the least threatening place on a ball court(long 2), leaving a wide open 3 point specialist at an incredibly easy spot to find and ...

re: Monty's rotations in the 4th - corndeaux
[quote]there'd be plenty of bad coaching decisions to point to,[/quote] I don't know. Most of it was fine even it had been a loss. Ellis hit some crazy shots at the end over Asik. shite happens. Not much a coach can do there.The offense stalled a bit, but how much is on him v the players?...
