re: Should we resign Cousins? - corndeaux
[quote]Mirotic, who they were trading for regardless, as our 6th man, would be phenomenal,.[/quote] Mirotic is a fit w/ Davis. not too sure of his [b]long term[/b] viability ($$+fit) if Cousins makes a decent return of form. dont believe the Pels can survive on the court and the cap sheet if ...

re: Should we resign Cousins? - corndeaux
thanks for running the numbers. obviously, if he could get a 2/3 year max, then a 5 year/35% max, that's a great payout for him. if he wasn't hurt, that would have been a gamble, but not entirely crazy. this type of injury just completely changes his equation. even in the numbers here, the ...

re: Should we resign Cousins? - corndeaux
it makes sense from our perspective. not necessarily from Cousins's or his agent's. and almost no one (other than KD and LeBron) has been comfortable betting on themselves with a shorter contract yes, there is a chance Cousins can recover fully from a catastrophic injury, opt out, and, at age 30/...

re: Should we resign Cousins? - corndeaux
perhaps. as a Pels fan, it would be great if they could get him at a discount but he still hasnt seen any of this new tv money. i think, given this injury, he is going to take as many guaranteed years+$$ as possible. betting on himself, while noble, is incredibly risky...

re: 2018-2019 Salary Cap - corndeaux
[quote]I would put him below average[/quote] i am more in line with cgrand here. Moore isn't a particularly good defender, but he's solid. he wont blow assignments, he's just small and, like you say, not particulary quick if you look at last year's numbers for context, Holiday had a 108 DRati...

re: 2018-2019 Salary Cap - corndeaux
that the most political sports league (I Can't Breathe t-shirts, Heat Trayvon Hoodie picture, Clippers inside out jerseys, et al) is seeing a huge bump in popularity at this moment is something. the National freaking Review had an article talking about this- this graph is something else coming from ...

re: 4th Quarter Spain Pick N Roll vs Blazers - corndeaux
yeah. most of the videos linked and plays i remember were with Clark. though they could use Moore or Miller in that back screener/shooter role. Holiday would work too. like you say, the jumper can come and go, but he can also attack off a pass. the last time the Pels ran it, the Blazers switched,...

re: 4th Quarter Spain Pick N Roll vs Blazers - corndeaux
actually pretty interesting stuff on the way PDX normally defends the PnR and how they adjusted to Spain down the stretch. the Pels first ran Spain out of TO w/ about 9 minutes left. they surprised PDX and got a Rondo uncontested lay-up. then PDX started having Ed Davis stay in the paint on the ...

was coming to post Cleaning the Glass [link=(https://cleaningtheglass.com/battle-at-the-basket/)]post[/link] (paywall) on Pels/Blazers crunch time. Falk looks more at PDX's defense than Pel's offense- he's broken Spain/Stack before. worth a read for those interested in the tug of war...

re: There's a universal thought that Gentry has done enough to earn another year - corndeaux
right. 3/$15, 2+1/$15 whatever. roughly the same. no one has ever said he is a hot coaching commodity or that the Pels should lock him up for 5/$40M they have had a good season that should be celebrated and enjoyed. they should look to bring Gentry back because he has been a part of that succes...

re: There's a universal thought that Gentry has done enough to earn another year - corndeaux
so you're going with the owner of 2 major sports franchises each worth over $1billion is too incompetent to extend the coach that brought her basketball team to its best record in a decade? and that is reasonable? lol i'd love to see the faces of Cousins and Davis as you explain that to them ...

re: There's a universal thought that Gentry has done enough to earn another year - corndeaux
[quote]With a team option he was basically a lame duck this year as well. [/quote] Sort of. The idea was likely always re-evaluate after year 3. Plus he didn't win 48 games last season. I will be truly shocked if he comes back without a raise and a couple of extra years guaranteed ...

re: There's a universal thought that Gentry has done enough to earn another year - corndeaux
This is all assuming Gentry comes back and I can't imagine he does that without an extension + $$. Asking him to coach on an expiring would be a bad look for a franchise that may finally be turning the corner on and off the court. And, then if he gets that extension, I don't know of too many scen...

[quote]just not very versatile I think this is simply incorrect[/quote] Gentry has flaws, no doubt. But "not versatile" is often just a BS critique with no substance behind it, as you laid out I think we can say Gentry is an averageish head coach, but he's also done a pretty good job th...
