re: Bucks fire Jason Kidd - corndeaux
We're not in any disagreement. Davis needs to score for this team to win. The problem, as you detailed, is that often either Davis is too passive or teams can scheme to get the ball out of his hands. He is not a guy who can go get the ball and create on his own. He needs someone to deliver it to ...

re: Bucks fire Jason Kidd - corndeaux
[quote]You think Boston draws that crap up? No.[/quote] Boston has the ability to give the ball to their best player and let him create a good shot on his own. Davis just isn't there. he's getting better every year, but, right now, it's a limit on his game and every other big in the league. a...

re: Bucks fire Jason Kidd - corndeaux
[quote] could the reason for that be coaching? (yes) [/quote] that's a part of it, obviously. Pop is an all time great, no doubt. but you honestly think the Spurs success is all Pop? Buford and their front office just pull random dudes out of Europe, late in the first, or off the street and...

[quote] they are a better team on the court THIS YEAR than the spurs, or should be.[/quote] no, they really shouldnt be. the Spurs are the exception to the raw talent rule. it just doesnt matter for them in the regular season. death, taxes, the Spurs winning 50+ games. the only 2 years since 98 ...

re: Tbh if it came down to it who do u let walk? - corndeaux
[quote]Especially ones where we're up 5+pts with like 2 minutes left or being up a good bit at the half to only lose or up a little and then absolutely get destroyed in the 2nd.[/quote] [quote]some of those are absolutely atrocious coaching in the 4th q or super slow 3rd q starts [/quote] so s...

re: Tbh if it came down to it who do u let walk? - corndeaux
[quote] Inexcusable losses and collapses is a pretty shitty coaching job.[/quote] the problem is that, for many Pels fans, any loss is inexcusable and every win is expected. if people are starting from the assumption that this is a 50+ win team, they are fooling themselves. new systems on both...

re: Tbh if it came down to it who do u let walk? - corndeaux
right. he's been in the league for decades and worked with some great coaches. players and coaches seem to like him. he's had success as an assistant. the guy knows basketball. totally fair to knock Gentry as a head coach. just not sure he's got it to be the guy in charge. it's like Norv Turner ...

re: AD & Boogie have BOTH been announced as starters for the All-Star Game! - corndeaux
I agree completely with Davis. I had questions about the combo working, but they and the coaches have figured out how to make it work on both ends (basically top 10 offense and top 10 defense when they share the court) obviously still questions about supporting players and how to make it work whe...

re: When is the Point Guard Boogie schtick going to stop? - corndeaux
Quite true. Assuming they stay around there, it also gets Cousins the highest win total of his career and Davis the 2nd highest of his career So I guess the real answer is lots of sadness...

re: This is not the loss to melt over. - corndeaux
[quote]We are just a .500 team. That's what .500 teams do. [/quote] exactly. and even with the typical uneven effort, they still had a good chance to win at the end with just a little better luck. not to boil it down to just the last 20 seconds, but if Bazemore doesn't hit a tough shot over...

re: This is not the loss to melt over. - corndeaux
[quote]played 4 games in 6 days and went 3-1[/quote] Sucks to lose to a bad ATL team, but a week ago every Pels fan would have been thrilled with that result If there's something to be upset about going forward, it's the terrible defense during crunch time. Bazemore getting back to back layu...

re: Biggest hole on this team? - corndeaux
Targets like Tyler Zeller, Belinelli, Ilyasova, Garrett Temple seem realistic and are decent, veteran, off the bench options on teams going nowhere this year. Not exciting, but QPon wasn't exciting either Problem is matching salary (except with Zeller) and giving up what meager assets they do hav...

re: After 42 games Jrue is averaging 18.4/5.1/4.4 - corndeaux
[quote]Personally, I think having to go small in the starting lineup hurts, missing Hill hurts, but the biggest difference is Boogie. His turnovers lead to a lot of easy looks, as do his misses when he argues and doesn't get back, as does his half court defense. Just something you gotta live wit...

re: Fire him - corndeaux
it's a message board. i'm not arguing with you. i spent the time to look up and provide data for your claim i am curious why you think what you do. and even more curious why you still hold that opinion after looking at data for the lineups you suggested [quote]tends to be the case that you hav...

[quote]Cousins has done well in the past when he has someone else that can cover for his gambling and deficiencies in the paint.[/quote] other than his time with Anthony Davis, where do you see that data? there is no dispute at all about Cousins needing someone to cover for him. he can't ...
