The only sub that mattered was getting AD back in. The team is awful when he is off the floor. ...

I almost forgot to cut the game back on after halftime. Pretty glad I tuned in.
The broadcaster described it best; he was unconscious tonight. ...

Shots on the wrong basket aren't considered shooting acts, so A5 couldn't get free throws. ...

UNC rebounds 45% of their own misses. The points in the paint are coming no matter how you try to stop it.
Their best offense is a missed shot....
| Pelicans Talk|| re: Dell Demps Sucks - PKTiger on 1/9/15 at 11:39 pm|
He was a league average 3pt shooter for his career before this year. Maybe he just needs to find his touch.
By no means is this a game changer, but he's a solid SF on a team without small forwards. He should start immediately.

Considering he was the biggest piece in the Rondo deal, it probably takes more than we have to give. ...

One could argue that the bad part of Dumars' career is better than Dell's overall. ...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: Soft screens - PKTiger on 1/9/15 at 7:03 am|
I think they do a solid job of screening. You're just looking for the wrong thing. Most of the time they (especially AD) aren't looking to set a hard screen to stop the defender. They're just trying to reroute the defender to make him go around.
That extra second it takes to hit the defender on ...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: The "hot rumor" circulating according to Ric Bucher - PKTiger on 1/9/15 at 6:49 am|
Everyone was wrong on Darko, not just Dumars. Some people were saying Darko should go #1 above Lebron.
[quote]lost Ben Wallace to the Bulls[/quote]
Bulls gave him a big, 4 year contract. Considering he only had one more good NBA season, I'll mark this as a positive for Joe. ...

| More Sports Board|| re: According to Jameis, game could have gone either way - PKTiger on 1/2/15 at 7:49 am|
One could argue that they beat themselves. It was a close game right up until they started turning the ball over. Turnovers are always a mix of ball insecurity by the offense and aggressiveness from the defense. Jameis just sees it as something they should've done better.
They certainly missed ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: 2012 Mett vs. 2014 Jennings - PKTiger on 1/2/15 at 7:08 am|
He didn't get worse as the season went along. He was consistently bad throughout. People were booing him right out the gate. Maybe you just paid more attention later. ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: 2012 Mett vs. 2014 Jennings - PKTiger on 1/2/15 at 6:51 am|
I don't know how you figured out Jennings' numbers would be worse if he threw more, but I'm intrigued by your reasoning. Why do you think that?...
| Tiger Rant|| 2012 Mett vs. 2014 Jennings - PKTiger on 1/2/15 at 6:41 am|
Against SEC Opponents:
130-237 (55%), 1642 yards, 5 TDs, 4 INTs
75-156 (48%), 883 yards, 5 TDs, 4 INTs
Obviously, Mett came back and had a spectacular 2013. I'm not saying Jennings' career will resemble Mett's. Just offering a little perspective that says maybe Jennings isn...
| Tiger Rant|| re: How many losses get Les ousted next season? - PKTiger on 1/2/15 at 2:19 am|
8+ losses gets him canned.
The season would have to be a total disaster for that to happen. We haven't reached the point where he has to scapegoat his coordinators to save his job. A season similar to 2014 only gets the seat warm.
And I hate to admit it, but I'm okay with that. A championshi...

So wait, you think players complaining about calls slows down the game, but your solution is handing out techs like candy? You know those take longer to administer, right? Plus you've just antagonized the team which will lead to, you guessed it, more bitching. ...

| Pelicans Talk|| re: Zach Lowe Western Conference Power Rankings - PKTiger on 12/23/14 at 2:31 pm|
You can argue whether he has a bias against the Pelicans, but he's been pretty spot on about them for a long time. He's written about them at length three or four times, and it's solid work. His article in the summer of 2013 after we acquired Jrue and Tyreke probably reads like a prophecy now. ...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: Could the Spurs be who we catch? - PKTiger on 12/23/14 at 10:23 am|
No, they're playing possum again. Remember last year around this time when people were worried with the record against elite teams.
Dallas is still the team to catch. I honestly think the trade is going to hurt them over the course of the season. ...
