@CowbellKingdom @TABDOG Ah, thank you CBK Moderator. Difficult to have an intelligent conversation when you are being bashed for every opinion offered!
I will enjoy the open communication with other thread posters!
1 week ago on Why Jimmer Fredette no longer made sense for the Sacramento Kings
Watching this game from the stands the other night, I got to say it was a very ticky tack called game by the ref's. But, so what? As an NBA player you have got to know that certain ref teams tend to call it that way. And if they trend that way, then you have to adjust your game and when those calls are made, you can't act the way DMC did. He deserves this suspension and I think they should have hammered him for more $'s. I get that he doesn't feel that he gets enough credit and gets called unfairly, but seriously? It's of his own making! He developed this persona...
And although he has been better this season at letting calls go, outbursts like this with consequential T's and ejections equals 1 foot forward and five feet back. You want to be considered the best C in the game? Model your behaviour around Tim Duncan. Learn how to keep your emotions in check and instead of routing them through anger, use them as a catalyst for upping your game.
I am growing tired of watching the amazing DMC and his basketball skills being diminished by the DMC who throws tantrums like a spoiled child. Play the game Demarcus!

@TABDOG Per 36? How about a game and per 48?
Jimmer's per 48 TO = 4.6
IT's per 48 TO = 4.0
Sucks to be constantly wrong doesn't it?

Great development for the Kings. Looking forward to the new arena and watching our Kings play there!

@TABDOG Ah, you obviously did not read my last post which had this link: http://www.82games.com/1213/12SAC4.HTM#sthash.UYwSuj6S.dpuf Which shows Jimmer's Opponents PER.
And I don't recall ever "braggin up" IT in any post, so unclear as to where you pulled that out. I am not playing any favor towards any player. Simply attempting to draw you into an intelligent conversation, which I am finding to be almost impossible.
Did it ever occur to you that you don't have to bash everyone in a thread? I share many of your thoughts on the Kings and their dealings with Jimmer. However, to go off on someone just because they post their opinion is a bit childish, don't you think?

@TABDOG So what? This is a team in the process of a makeover after years and years of roster and contract neglect. As you will be following the Warriors now, as you indicated on another thread, examine their PER stats for the Warriors and you will find like numbers. PER just tells how officiant their offense is... not how well they play as a team.
- Stephan Curry - 23.7
- David Lee - 19.5
- Klay Thompson - 13.4
- Harrison Barnes - 10.3
- Andre Iguodala - 13.6
- Andrew Bogut - 17.6
- Jordan Crawford - 10.6
- Jermaine O'Neal - 13.3
- Marreese Speights - 14.8
- Draymond Green - 12.1
So an All-Star, a couple of second offensive options and a gaggle of league average players. Bottom line is they took a couple of years to form a good group of players that work well together. They finally found a coach who got them, a team who "never" played much defense, to begin playing defense, I believe they are 9th in the league in points allowed this year compared to 19th last year and 28th the year before.
This Kings team will be no different. So while you rant and rave about how terrible ownership, their GM and coach are, the rest of us that fill the arena for every home game will choose to be positive and look forward to next year and the continued rebuilding of this franchise.

@Cowbb Very well put. Could not agree with you more. Let's hope Jimmer gets signed on to a team who can utilize his offensive skill set, give him some spacing and let him shoot.
1 week, 2 days ago on WATCH: Pete D’Alessandro on potential Jimmer Fredette buyout
@TABDOG *sigh* Since you were obviously unable to quantify using the algorithm I left you above. Scroll down half way to find Opponent Counterpart 48-minute production. Here are last years stats, not as complete as my computations, but you wanted to see it.
This years computations have his Opponent Per 48 minute at 20.9, so slightly lower. Knowing how thick you are, I am sure you will find a way to dispute the numbers above, even though they are not of my calculations. The number and game play speak for themselves, which validates my initial comments. Jimmer can shoot lights out when given some space. But his defense is a huge liability. Hopefully he will be picked up by a team that plays good help/team defense, can protect his deficiencies and free's him up so he can play and shoot more.
1 week, 3 days ago on Will Jimmer Fredette see reduced minutes for the Sacramento Kings?
@TABDOG Yes, I agree with you 100 PERcent. You are the stupid one, as well as braindead. My dignity is intact. You however, have successfully tarnished and shredded any dignity you may have had long ago.
Jimmer is now bought out, or close to being, so we can only hope you turn your derision and empty pontificating to whichever site he lands at next... we can only hope.
@TABDOG LOL... No, I am fairly sure I have you pegged in the intelligence arena... However, if you believe you are smarter than I think you are, then you can do the configurations and answer that question yourself.
Factually, the computation is part of the book "Basketball on Paper" written in 2004, which are efficiency metrics for both Individual Offensive and Defensive Ratings.
Have fun computing!
@Jim7419 Yo Jim, you got my agreement here. I hope that he can be a poor mans Steve Nash as well. I wouldn't label him a bust just yet.
@TABDOG You aren't very bright are you? I have tried to be kind, however you seem a bit dense and don't deserve further attempts. So you can understand, I will try to keep this simple, but pay attention:
Points per 100 possessions can be calculated both for a team and individual stats. A players defensive rating estimates how many points the player allowed per 100 possessions he individually faced while on the court. The rating is conceptualized by the individual defensive stop. Stops will take into account a play ending an opponents possession (tracked in the boxscore) as well as forced TO's and forced misses by the player (which aren't tracked)
The formula is thus:
Stops = Stops(a) + Stops(b)
Stops(a) = STL + BLK *FMwt *(1-11.07 * DOR%) +DRB * (1 - FMwt)
FMwt = (DFG% * (1 - DOR%)) / (DFG% * (1 - DOR%) + (1-DFG%) * DOR%)
DOR% Opponent_ORB / (Opponent_ORB + Team_DRB)
DFG% = Opponent_FGM / Opponent_FGA
Stops(b) = (((Opponent_FGA - Opponent_FGM - Team_BLK) / Team_MP) * FMwt * (1 - 1.07 * DOR%) + ((Opponent_TOV - Team_STL) / Team_MP)) * MP + (PF / Team_PF) * 0.4 * Opponent_FTA * (1 - (Opponent_FTM / Opponent_FTA))^2
Also significant is the calculation of Stop%, this is the rate at which a player forces a defensive stop as a percentage of personal or individual possessions faced. So:
Stop% = (Stops * Opponent_MP) / (Team_Possessions * MP)
With all these calculations, individual Defensive Rating can be had.
DRtg = Team_Defensive_Rating + 0.2 * (100 * D_Pts_per_ScPoss * (1 - Stop%) - Team_Defensive_Rating)
Team_Defensive_Rating = 100 * (Opponent_PTS / Team_Possessions)
D_Pts_per_ScPoss = Opponent_PTS / (Opponent_FGM + (1 - (1 - (Opponent_FTM / Opponent_FTA))^2) * Opponent_FTA*0.4)
Understanding that an individual defensive rating is often influenced by the team's defensive efficiency. I would happily explain these calculations to anyone else. I wouldn't begin to waste any extra time explaining them to you, as you don't have the intelligence to understand them.
However, that is not the point. The point is you accused me of making up fake stats. When you clearly did a quick search for 100 Possession Per and figured I was talking about Team stats and related that to Jimmer. Do yourself a favor and argue with someone who operates more on your lower IQ level... Never bring a bb gun to a gun fight, and your bb gun is pretty damn small.
@Jim7419 I am not comparing Jimmer to IT. IT has his weaknesses, although his efficiency PER rating is very high. I am just talking about Jimmer here. And yes, his comparison to Nash has been documented as you alluded to. I can only hope he follows the route of Nash and becomes that type of player.
@TABDOG Again, before you lace me up, and remembering that I am a fan of Jimmer. The truth is had a team seen him as valuable at 3.1 mil a year, they would have worked with the Kings. No team did. As I said, unless he improves his defense, he will be lucky to get a no-guarantee one year contract next year. I hope he works feverishly and gets a good deal.
@Jim7419 I would agree to disagree. I am not talking about IT or Ben... And yes, Jimmer brings a plethora of good things, unfortunately those things don't include defense.
It goes without saying that Jimmer has been a consummate professional while with the Kings. However, he is just not worth the $3.1 they would have paid him next year. Yes, he has a renowned shooting touch, but his achilles is his unignorable defensive inabilities. He can't fight through screens, gets posted up far too easily and does not have an ideal lateral burst. That equals opposing PG's putting up an amazing 21.1 PER against him.
Even worse, opponent SG's (his true position) and PG's are all offensively skilled players, which makes his long range scoring replaceable. So his only hope moving forward is to improve his defense, otherwise he will be regulated to a bench role for any team. And to say otherwise is wishful thinking. He will be lucky to get a one year non-guaranteed deal by any team next year.
I like Jimmer a lot. And it's exciting to see him put up offense out of thin air, but it is just as frustrating to watch him allow more points than he produces most night against quality PG/SG's.
I hope he puts in serious work on improving his defense this off season, so he will be more attractive to a team not just for his offensive prowess, but also a decent defensive stopper off the bench.
@PapiChulo Totally agree with you. Get Ray as much playing time as possible and ease back on IT's minutes.
1 week, 4 days ago on Road Reaction Postgame Show: Sacramento Kings at Denver Nuggets
@Charger11 Facts are that Isaiah is shooting .452% from the field (6th amongst PG's). And he is shooting .372% from 3 (17th amongst PG's) which puts him above All Stars Kyrie Irving and John Wall. So saying IT is not a good shooter is not really accurate.

Good game last night minus the turnovers.
@sruns Yes, noticed it too last night. Not a lot of frenzy until DWill's dunk. Boston was playing off on defense so much that guys were just getting open looks, thus the lack of assists. Decent shooting % though.
