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...

[quote] straw men, misrepresentations, poor understanding of basic statistical analysis, and nauseating appeals to authority[/quote] from the poster who had to get to 144 minutes of one single 5 man lineup to find data that supports his 3rd attempt at making a point about the effectiveness of C...

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]I mentioned it at the bottom of the last page: [/quote] there is no data on how Cousins+big performed in the past in any of your posts i'll post the numbers again, looking at the lineups you want. and i'll add the 6th most used lineup that has also featured Cousins/Koufosl. all numbers ...

[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 ...

:rolleyes: i welcome different, well-articulated opinions. i even actually agreed with you in this thread. my exasperation tends to come from a refusal to engage beyond one's own biases and opinions. and i am certainly guilty of that too at times. and i'll own it here- i lost the plot in the Davi...

[quote]What I don’t get is why they can’t play Asik[/quote] it's fair to wonder, but i don't think it's crazy or dumb for them to see 17/18 Asik as unplayable for a number of reasons. if Omer Asik is the answer to a question, there are bigger problems going on here bottom line is that these ...
