@Hustle Westbrook Morrow Faction Tony Allen was a pretty darn good offensive player in college. 16 ppg his last season on over 50% shooting.
Andre Roberson scored way less and was less efficient. He did rebound better though.
They might be similar as shooters, but Tony Allen was a way more accomplished scorer than Roberson coming into the league. Maybe Roberson can make up for some of this with giving the team more chances on the offensive boards.

@nasama @Zach99 I would put him in the 7-9 million range with those other guys. He is young and his 3 point shot has been improving. If he can be reliable from deep this year and still attack like he has in the past, he could be worth the top end of that scale.
If he can play and defend the 2 guard position adequately, he also has more value in my mind.

Comparing Reggie Jackson's situation to Gordon Hayward and Chandler Parson's is just plain wrong.
Unfortunately for Jackson, he plays point guard at a time in the NBA when point guard is the strongest position by a mile.
Kyle Lowry is the very top of the top end for Jackson. He signed for 12 million to stay in Toronto. He is pretty clearly a better player than Jackson unless he takes another major leap this year.
Other point guards comparable to him like Monta Ellis, Jeff Teague, Jrue Holliday, Mike Conley all making in the 7-9 million range.
We seriously need to compare apples to apples when we are looking at how much Reggie will get paid. Its a supply and demand game and unfortunately for Jackson the supply of good point guards in the NBA is at an all time high.
@harmlesslyfatal @Zach99 You have pretty damn low standards for Heisman trophy winners then.
If that was an average game for Winston this year. He won't be close to going back to New York for the Heisman ceremony.
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Saturday Morning Cartoons: Super duo
Im not mad, but you guys sound like OU fans who are a little nervous after seeing how OSU played. Just give credit where it is due. Winston looked below average tonight, he was voted best player in college football last year.
@harmlesslyfatal @Zach99 @King of Carrot Flowers the third Whatever you say, OSU defense played great. He did not play well in my opinion.
People have a ton of yards in college football. He was not very good at all. Bad decisions. Did not look like a Heisman trophy winner. OSU defense had a lot to do with it.
That is my point if you disagree fine, but you cannot look at the guy who was voted the best player in college football last year the same way you do any other player
@harmlesslyfatal @King of Carrot Flowers the third @Zach99 He was not good by the standards of someone who won a heisman trophy. If you disagree with that, you need to take off your crimson colored glasses.
@King of Carrot Flowers the third @harmlesslyfatal @Zach99 Whatever
If that is what a Heisman trophy quarterback looks like to you all, then more power to you
@harmlesslyfatal @Zach99 Its college footballl... you play well over 100 plays
I did not say he was shut down, but he was not good at all in my opinion.
His only touchdown pass was into tons of traffic could easily have been intercepted. His touchdown run was about a tenth of a second from being a fumble for a touchback.
He threw 2 picks. He was not good.
Winston really sucked tonight. Gonna give the credit in my eyes at least to the Cowboy defense.
Shut that Heisman trophy winner down very impressively
Wonder if Herbstreit has his Florida State fan club membership card laminated or not
Pretty weak again
He knocked his helmet off.....
Tons of heart from the Pokes tonight. Win or lose
@CDSpark Well, we did not have to challenge the juggernaut that is Louisiana Tech....
OU fans are very sad, sad people. Proud of the Pokes great effort tonight.
@Legendary_Dork They are totally gonna cross the streams...

@FallenOSIRIS @Perk has a lot of value Home court matters in basketball. Our team is more talented, but their team is really good too and playing at home.
@harmlesslyfatal http://westbrookframes.com/ No one has a clue at this point in my opinion. Comes down to how Knight plays.
He was really, really good against Alabama and not so good the rest of the year. If he plays like Alabama all year OU is pretty darn good I think.

Anyone see that twinge of regret in Pau Gasol's eyes when he gave Serge that chest bump?
Almost like he said, "Man, I could have played next to this guys defense all season long and blew it"

Is extend and trade still an option in the NBA today? Like if we decided to trade Reggie Jackson to a situation he was happy in, could we extend his contract as part of the process?

@Hustle Westbrook Morrow Faction @Boomtown He is insanely good at those 20 footers though.
When you have a skill that is that elite, should be doing it more, not less in my opinion.
It is the worst shot in the game for the average basketball player, but Serge is far far beyond average at those mid range jumpers.
Keep em coming Serge.
2 months ago on How it’s all going to play out, 2014-15 edition
@ThunderWins My favorite play in this is when Thabo penetrates and the defense collapses leaving KD wide open on the perimeter. Well done, Mavs, well done.
2 months, 1 week ago on Serge Ibaka dunks all over Angola
@Devine Mortal Kevin Durant does not play in the Oklahoma City Market. When you are as good as KD is, your market in the whole freaking world. Anyone in any country can use the internet to watch any basketball game the KD plays.
The whole big market small market thing is way over blown these days. Mattered in the past, gets less important every year.

Korver should probably make the team. Just shoot open threes and never touch the ball otherwise. This team needs someone like that.
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Video: King of the court
@okcjim Our offense was seventh in the league last year with KD and Russ on the team. That is not ok to me.
And now our starting line up is getting worse offensively.
We were ok when we had a defensive specialist shooting the 3 ok a year ago. Thabo falling off a cliff hurt this team offensively. Roberson cannot even make a free throw...
How many three and D guys do you know that cannot make free throws?
Being seventh in the league with 2 of the top 5 or 6 scorers in the league on the team should not be acceptable.
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Friday Bolts – 8.1.14
@TempBoy Brandon We will never have the cap room to sign Love in free agency as long as Serge, KD and Russ are on the team.
@rednuht @Zach99 Id argue that we were also front runners during the season when Russ got hurt against the Rockets. Our margin of victory that year was historically good.
@rednuht Probably fair. We have the best chance to win next year in my opinion. With high expectation come high pressure.
@Crow Sarcasm was pretty apparent I think =P
@KD4theWin Helps us cap wise, but I don't think this team can handle the loss of intangibles...
Anyone know if Withey brings those to the table?
@Perk has a lot of value No official annoucement today. I'd keep asking this every day for the next 700 days. I think it will pay off eventually.
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Thursday Bolts – 7.31.14
Id rather be like the Spurs and contend for titles (and hopefully win our fair share) for 10-15 years.
My hope is that the media annoys KD so much that he signs an extension with OKC on the first possible day just to shut those jack asses up.
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Durant applauds LeBron’s decision, talks his own
@Dominator To be fair, Heustis will be the very first player who would be stashed domestically. Probably a fair assumption from them that he would be on the team when he was signed in the first round.
@[weed wolf faction] @DVoegeli The media gives him an incentive for re-sign early. They may be doing us a favor. He may re-sign at max money early just to shut these idiots up.

@L0rv @Zach99 Could work I guess. We have all seen those games when the bad team makes everything and the good team takes a lot of outside shots that don't fall.
This US team has really good shooting overall though. A few years ago, team USA's biggest weakness was its shooting, but they have definately fixed that recently.
I think it is not a good gamble at all.

The problem with zone defense is you almost have to give something up. If you want to protect the paint, you have to pack the zone inside and leave yourself open on the perimeter.
If you want to guard the perimeter, you have to stretch the zone. This leaves big gaps in the defense that are begging to be attacked.
I just don't see it as being useful against a team with shooters who can also attack the basket. USA has that in abundance with KD, Harden, Curry, Kyrie.
A bad team might try the pack it in strategy and just hope that the US shooters have a bad day, but I really don't see this as a long term strategy for success.
@L0rv Tough to play a box and 1 when you are dealing with shooters like Curry, Korver, Thompson and Harden at the other spots.
Just having a couple of those guys on the floor would stretch that zone so much.
@Marko (Lacoste baby) @D@nny Good thing he missed... that dunk might have destroyed the world...
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Saturday Morning Cartoons: Captain KD
@BangBangThunder @Zach99 @exclamatory remark That would put us over the tax.... cheap, cheap, cheap
@BangBangThunder @exclamatory remark Then Presti invents a time machine and brings back prime Jordan and signs him at the vet minimum.
@[weed wolf faction] @Zach99 @Russ is better than KD I meant the aesthetics of his shot. It got broke somewhere along the line.
3 months ago on The Side Part: Russell Westbrook likes clothes
@[weed wolf faction] @Russ is better than KD His shot was not hideous in college. Somehow became hideous in the NBA. A little sad.
@Pancakes and Blouses @Lost Ones Seems simple to me. They like his potential. They want him to develop. They want to be a big part directly in his development. They don't want him on the 15 man roster yet.
They get all of that in this deal.

@harmlesslyfatal http://westbrookframes.com/ @The McAdams Bros This is crazy talk... most teams start their best players and just stagger rotations a bit.
Can just start Reggie then pull him after 7 minutes or so. Russ plays whole first quarter. Reggie gets a five minute breather in the first and comes back to start the second and still lead the bench mob.
Starting Reggie and still having a good scorer with the bench is not even challenging. This argument is silly.
