re: Brandon Ingram shows Lakers he isn't the same player they traded - Bronc
[quote]I promise you I read the link you posted before. I do not agree with the basis of it. It is too constricted and small of a sample size. I can't be any more clear. a huge number of "all stars" are many time repeaters. They dominate the pool. [/quote] Explain to me how the sample size is too...

[quote]The context you are using is a select group of the greatest players. [/quote] Again, read my words, go look at the link I provided last time we spoke, below is the criteria that derived the 12 season career length you continue to claim is incorrect - Played in one all star game since 19...

re: Brandon Ingram shows Lakers he isn't the same player they traded - Bronc
[quote]What you have done is take a small group of players, which skews the averages to a great length. You are putting Ingram into the exclusive company of HOFers at 23 years old. You say he isn't in his prime yet. You are projecting a 15 year career for him. That is very rare. There are less than ...

[quote]You are cherry picking factors, shrinking the pool from a 1000 to less than 50 to back a fantastical theory. You are asserting that he will not hit his peak until a vast majority players careers are over. [/quote] What fantastical theory is that? Parsing down the raw data into relevant dat...

[quote]But is it? 5 losses in a row, so I think we can all be a little doomed feeling right now![/quote] If you go back and look at the thread where we talked about the schedule release, I said that we very likely would be below .500 coming back home to play SA. Likely 7-9 through the season to ...

re: If Zion is working with Vinson why is everything at the rim? - Bronc
Defenders will give it to him by default, the same way they do Lebron, that’s why its imperative he learn to make them pay. We’ve also looked over this before, once Zion sees a lot of defenders his efficiency drops around the rim and he’s prone to live ball turnovers. A reliable mid range jump...

[quote]I didn't say he was tapped out. I said that he is entering his prime at 23-25. I said that he would most likely be out of the league by 30[/quote] And all of this is statistically incorrect about the type of player Ingram is. And you literally just said you think he is at his peak...Despit...

re: If Zion is working with Vinson why is everything at the rim? - Bronc
Being one dimensional does not offer advantages. Being able to hit a mid range or three opens up driving lanes or at least makes teams pay for selling out. More likely it’s from hesitation, not trusting his shot yet, or simply not having it yet. As there is no world where if he has it in his arse...

re: Brandon Ingram shows Lakers he isn't the same player they traded - Bronc
His work ethic would have no doubt turned him into a very good player eventually, but I don’t think it happens the way it does or as fast as it does without coming to NOLA. The combination of competitive fuel being told you weren’t good enough, having access to what I don’t think is fair to say a...

re: When is Griff honeymoon period over? - Bronc
John Wall actually said and gave the right emotion of absurdity the other day. Basically told a reporter how absurd it is to write these narratives ten games into the season under such odd circumstance. Toronto is 3-8, Miami, the EC champions are 4-6, Denver, that made it to the WC finals are .50...

re: Thread for the implications of Jax's long range jumper at the end of the game - Bronc
My ideal is to get Hart back on the cheap and let he, Zion, and Hayes share the majority of time with Vinson next offseason. Ingram seems to be good, Lonzo is a lost cause. Vinson should be able to refocus on some new guys. Those three becoming reliable jump shooters would elevate this team i...

re: What is this team good at? - Bronc
The doom posting is getting absurd. We have the tenth ranked overall defense despite the hardest schedule in the league, the best paint defense in the league, number 9 in fewest second chance points, and the best rebounding team in the league. Which needs the context that because of the offse...

re: When is Griff honeymoon period over? - Bronc
[quote] Zion is creating his own offense at a much higher rate than AD did early in his career. AD was a rolling big who got a lot of offense assisted. I think people don't acknowledge that Zion's ability to create off the dribble and finish through contact at an extremely high level at this ...

re: When is Griff honeymoon period over? - Bronc
Again, the kid has played 34 games across two coaches and is on a historical pace. All with a shortened offseason and condensed schedule and you are attempting to call him a disappointment and not who we thought he was. Step back and get some perspective. If we are at game 30 and Zion looks l...

re: Thread for the implications of Jax's long range jumper at the end of the game - Bronc
His jump shot still needs to be fixed. Either that or he fell back into a bad habit since it did look like in some offseason footage he had adjusted his form so that his gather and sideways release over his eye was fixed, but he was doing it again on that jumper. Can’t be a reliable jump shoot...

Is there a more iconic signal that a TD baw has lost an argument than the one emoji post? Seriously, go breathe into a bag a for a few minutes and calm the hell down. Zion is playing and trending on a historical pace and is doing so under incredibly non-ideal circumstances and in a system that is...

[quote]AD didn't have to be an even good passer b/c he was much better in his 2nd year.[/quote] Yes he did actually. Some of you really have some short memories. AD’s early time as a player was as a low skilled garbage man and even as he began to develop his post game it was hindered because h...
