I didn't ck but wondered.

get a vet who will get into rw and kd where appropriate.
draft pick isn't going to be much help next season. probably should trade it. now if can.

Russ: Hear my usage has fallen to 38%... guess I'll start at 53% tonight...

Danny Ferry ran Spurs model in Atlanta, after failing with the superstar model in Cleveland.
12 hours, 5 minutes ago on $200 million for Durant? It doesn’t add up
To look at other side, he didn't plan to lose Harden. He just didn't do what it would take to retain.
12 hours, 8 minutes ago on $200 million for Durant? It doesn’t add up
Title-winning Shaq-Kobe combined usage averaged about 61% and peaked at 63.5. Thus year Russ-Durant are at 68.6.
12 hours, 10 minutes ago on $200 million for Durant? It doesn’t add up
Spurs model? Nah I am going to concentrate the offense as much as anyone ever, as much or more than Shaq and Kobe.
12 hours, 18 minutes ago on $200 million for Durant? It doesn’t add up
Why? Does he believe the Spurs were wrong to moderate star usage and spread the ball? Was 4 titles before he left not enough? He doesn't talk building up superstars but that us what happened. Either he wanted / accepted that or wasn't in close control. Superstars created tend to create buzz for the GM with them...
12 hours, 20 minutes ago on $200 million for Durant? It doesn’t add up
Presti's design creates superstars. The opposite of San Antonio. Hmmm...
12 hours, 22 minutes ago on $200 million for Durant? It doesn’t add up
Good responses. Dialectics over researching and writing more and hogging both sides of a topic.
12 hours, 26 minutes ago on $200 million for Durant? It doesn’t add up
Played 19 minutes that night and 4 of 6 previous. Since, more than 19 minutes just once and most way less or none. So it may have mattered.
12 hours, 30 minutes ago on $200 million for Durant? It doesn’t add up
Date? Dec. 11.
12 hours, 36 minutes ago on $200 million for Durant? It doesn’t add up
Games this season with 20 plus shots, Westtbrook 17, Durant 8. Two things of concern there.
In 12 seasons for 4 teams, D'Antoni had 10 below avg def. efficiencies, a 13th and a partial season where he was fired. About half the time his teams were worst 5.
14 hours, 1 minute ago on $200 million for Durant? It doesn’t add up
Some of the stats I said he was at careers low have improved over last few days from when they were career lows.
His defensive winshares are half on last year. His DBPM a bit more than half.
14 hours, 15 minutes ago on $200 million for Durant? It doesn’t add up
nothing saying is defense is worse.. except career lows in dr%, steals and blocks.
14 hours, 42 minutes ago on $200 million for Durant? It doesn’t add up
yes, imo. the guy has no interest in defense. I doubt he ever coaches a playoff level team again.
14 hours, 46 minutes ago on $200 million for Durant? It doesn’t add up
In second half of Dec. Westbrook had a run where he shot 20 plus shots and hit half in 4 of 8 times. Since he is 0 for 7 and only shot 40% twice in such games.
14 hours, 47 minutes ago on $200 million for Durant? It doesn’t add up
Any playoff team want or need Jackson? Maybe Miami, if they count.
15 hours, 1 minute ago on Saturday Morning Cartoons: Remember the good times
I've several times listed lbaka's career lows in ts%, or%, dr%, steal%, block%, ws%48. The downturn is broad and real.
15 hours, 7 minutes ago on Saturday Morning Cartoons: Remember the good times
that not exactly what you said. you said didn't make much of a difference.
15 hours, 25 minutes ago on Saturday Morning Cartoons: Remember the good times
The 2004 Pistons disagree. As do the 2006Heat.
15 hours, 27 minutes ago on Saturday Morning Cartoons: Remember the good times
The Presti press conference that should be:
So Sam, I assume you are comfortable with Westbrook having the highest usage % of all time?
Has Reggie's trade value gone up or down in last month?
Why did you let your draft pick number fetish fool you into taking Waiters?
Are you going to get anything but expiring vets for Lamb and Jones? Why did they fail here? Bad picks, bad coaxing or both?
Is Ibaka hurt or just not trying as hard?
What does your analytic staff do and don't do and does Brooks listen?
Was Perk your biggest mistake? Or was it Green, Noah, Chandler or Harden?
Do you think hiding in your office and hardly ever saying anything to the media and fans fits with the concept of leadership?
Do you really think you are are on secure ground with Durant?

Dion's winshares per 48 minutes for Thunder is 1/4th of Lambs, barely half of Telfair's.
@ Luke @Crow I assume.
2 days, 11 hours ago on The Side Part: Nike is evil
What will Presti get for Jackson, Lamb and Jones? Remains to be seen but from past bust / mismanaged players probably little. If RJ to Denver talk was real it probably involved Perkins. Looks like they were another team, a lottery team that said no to 2.5 months of Perkins. If Perkins was used as salary cap filler it would seem to mean he does not have that vital role that he supposedly filled.

KD is a nice teammate but can't say he has proven up to leadership task this yr. Russ is too busy doing Russ to be an adequate leader.
2 days, 15 hours ago on Thursday Bolts – 1.29.15
Presti and Weaver must have been celebrated when they got Dion. Woohoo!! High five my man. We got a #5 pick for nothing (but a future first rounder)
this morning at ESPN a reader notices... Dion Waiters 102 ranked of 103 SGs with a rpm estimate of -5.5.
boo boo. my lordy.
I hadn't checked that in a few weeks. But his sub sub par ws/48 is actually one of his best. Showing how bad he was when purchased.
2 days, 16 hours ago on Thursday Bolts – 1.29.15
The situational value argument exists, though never rigorously tested for times it worked vs. not but overall Perk now has his worst ever ws/48, bpm and second worst per. RPM is the bright spot where he is estimated as only -1.5 and the 52nd best center. The bright spot.
Thunder have analytics staff but with Perkins, Waiters and others, they didn't use it right.
Presti and Weaver self deluded about Waiters.
and Carmelo as a recruiter? only for guys who want the money and the city. no Melo NBA title in NY. probably not even a second round appearance ever.
Good write-up for this game, moment.

yeah and the corruption we usually don't see dwarfs the corruption we do see. but it is in business, religion, non-profits as well as government.
easy when on computer but not as easy on phone, so maybe another time.
Need auditors with big balls.
efficient and well allocated resources under monarchy? like in France? the French revolution disagreed.
Russ 20 and over shots last season, team 9-5. 19 or less 26-6.
but only exists because of flaws in family, religion, business and people's hearts, mind, bodies, etc.
for to day's nationalism, probably. as a step away from independent colonies / weak confederacy it helped sell the goods to the politicians who wielded the power over those votes.
