re: Russel Westbrook goes off on reporter, solidifies MVP - shel311
[quote]Seems like that drop is likely due to that KD void. [/quote]I'm sure that has something to do with it. [quote]The team has to transform their philosophy to have any chance of improving, and that includes Russ. He needs to relinquish some of his numbers to help to get these guys in their ...

[quote]What has CP3 ever done in the playoffs besides choke or get injured? [/quote]Choke in the playoffs? :lol: His playoff numbers are off the charts good. Just because a team loses doesn't mean everyone choked. If you watched, you would know that. Game In the last 2 playoffs, Paul's...

re: Russel Westbrook goes off on reporter, solidifies MVP - shel311
I also looked at "open"(the previous numbers were for "Wide Open"... This season: Attempts 22.8 FG% 43.2 eFG% 50.9 Last season: Attempts 23.1 FG% 47.1 eFG% 54.7 So attempts ever so slightly down, but again, they simply can't make shots, that's the true difference....

[quote]An open look doesn't have to be a three pointer. [/quote]No, but I don't think you can say the 3pt numbers simply don't apply to the point you're making about the players just not being used to not getting the ball or whatever. For reference, OKC shot 9.2 wide open 3s last season, 11.3...

re: Russel Westbrook goes off on reporter, solidifies MVP - shel311
[quote]Maybe OKC needs to play to the strength of its roster. They aren't Golden St, Cleveland or Houston. [/quote]They were 18th in 3pt attempts, not a 3pt shooting team. My point was they get wide open looks at a decent clip, so that notion that a ball passed to them for an open look is this co...

[quote]AD was healthy all year. That should be enough. They won 45 games in '15 with the same team and more injuries than the '16 team that won 30 games, and continued their shitty record this year with a healthy AD all year. He just hasn't taken that step to superstardom like most expected afte...

[quote]Interesting take here. I'm not sure what John Wall does better than Chris Paul. The advanced stats agree, as CP3 even beats him in the counting stats despite playing 17 less games. [/quote]Paul is better than Wall by a sizable margin....

re: Russel Westbrook goes off on reporter, solidifies MVP - shel311
[quote]Difference between one star and two stars is huge. There's only five guys on the court of any one team. If you have two, 40% of your lineup, that can demand a double team in a well run offense, one of those others guys will be open more often than not. [/quote]But wouldn't 2...or 3 guys get ...

[quote]Not sure about that one to say the least. [/quote]If I told you before the start of the playoffs we're drafting teams for these playoffs, no one in their right mind is taking Irving before Chris Paul. :lol:...

re: Rank the top 10 current NBA players - shel311
I think there's still a sizable gap between the 2, whether it's just watching or looking at their productivity/efficiency. And I think Paul is better/smarter by a decent bit defensively, where you wouldn't really see it show up looking at stats....

[quote]Wouldn't that, coupled with Giannis improving at a fantastic rate, only bolster my argument? [/quote]Nah, I think it supports the argument of let's see Giannis do it for more than 1 season before we give him AD status IMO. For reference, Giannis's PER this season is lower than AD's care...

re: Russel Westbrook goes off on reporter, solidifies MVP - shel311
[quote]When one player dominates the ball this much they never have the chance to build any chemistry whatsoever on the court. [/quote]What about when 2 players dominate the ball? Or 3? Why do we have so many examples of teammates playing better when they get the ball even less due to 2-3 st...

[quote]I'm a firm believer in Curry being about to do what he does because of how perfect the team is. [/quote]I certainly agree that he's maxed out how good he can be. But even if you take his 3pt% and TS% down a notch or 3, it would still be some of the best shooting we've seen in quite some ti...

[quote]Put Thompson on any of the bottom teams and watch what happens. He will be an all NBA defender and score close to 30ppg, plus that team will be in the playoffs[/quote]You're assuming he'll get just as many open looks with mediocre players? Klay would have to prove he can create his own looks...

[quote]I agree. He's really hard to rank for me. Put Lebron on the Bobcats and I could very easily see him doing damn near the exact same shite he does now. After a full season, he'd have guys where he needs them and would be able to manufacture some offense and make guys better like he does. ...
