[quote]What he is is LSU's greatest active position player by far. [/quote] You must be forgetting that DJ Lemahieu has 2 gold gloves and 1 batting title. He has a little ways to go to catch Lemahieu. ...

re: LeBron switching off Durant was shameful - BearTiger
[quote]I do feel like teams switch entirely too easy these days. Sometimes it's not even a screen. The off ball guy just runs in the direction of the ball handler. I guess with shooters like GS you just can't take the chance of giving them any daylight. [/quote] Completely agree. I like the co...

re: Why don’t teams pack in a 3-2 zone against the warriors? - BearTiger
To be fair a 3-2 or 1-2-2 zone is the best zone to defend the 3 and is most vulnerable in the middle. It is also beatable by working it to the corners and overloading one side, because the backside rotations are more difficult than in a 2-1-2 or 2-3 zone. I think the Warriors would torch a 3-2 z...

CSAL/CSAA Elite 8 Basketball Championship History - BearTiger

re: David Dellucci is terrible at color commentating - BearTiger
SEC Network promoted him from doing online broadcasts to tv for games and also some studio commentary, so they obviously like his work. I have really enjoyed his studio work so far on SEC Now, and thought he did a good job tonight as well. ...

re: As a in game bench coach, what is Calipari on a 1-10 scale? - BearTiger
[quote]Coaching on the bench is something pretty much any coach can do. What makes a coach a good coach is the preparation outside of games. That's where a team is built and a system and culture are implemented.[/quote] Mostly Agree. The vast majority of coaching happens at practice. That's w...

re: 12th Annual CSAA (Formerly CSAL) 8th Grade Basketball Preseason Rankings - BearTiger
Yeah it has been a crazy season with a ton of parity. In the tournament, it felt like any of the top 6 or so teams had a shot to win it, and that proved to be the case. Both of these teams moved up in my rankings throughout the season, but I don't think anybody would have predicted them playing i...

re: Full Court Shot wins game for Baton Rouge 8th grade team - BearTiger
[quote]Because there wasn’t enough time to get a rebound and make a full court heave. They were up by 1 so being up by 2 in that situation is no help. [/quote] Exactly and if the second shot is made, then STM gets a chance to take it in from out of bounds and run some sort of play to heave it dow...
