@AIaska @Skyline Hate is a strong word. Watch our breakdown coming up today - you'll see where I'm coming from...
2 years, 1 month ago on Tuesday Bolts – 3.12.13
@FF_pickups You are starting to border on paranoid, my friend. I have access to Synergy Sports, which can show you every one of his misses from 16-23 feet all in row with a touch of the button. I can assure you this isn't like some O'Reilly Factor manipulated stat, I have actually have ethics and standards.
3 years ago on TGR 75: Why the Thunder won’t be champs
@qrex I went back and looked - the Thunder won one of the three games, so you're absolutely right. It's not like the Thunder don't have the ability to beat the Spurs, and by the stats I quoted, certainly the Spurs should be concerned with how they defend the pick and roll ball handler and the transition. That said, I don't think much can be gleaned by this crazy compressed season, which is going to make a lot of predictors (me included) look foolish...
@mjokc88 We at least you didn't tell me to get cancer. That would be plain mean.
@jallenmorris Scroll up, and you'll see someone else who did the research on me...
@Bulldog83 Don't know that stat - BUT, I'm going to look at every one of Westbrook's jump shots 16-23' when he doesn't pass to anybody and see what that percentage is. I'm definitely curious
@Crow Awesome research on me, fellas. I just took over the program, finishing my 2nd year. The players that are coming now are on a level my school has never had before. If things go according to plan, we'll be competing for a state championship within 2 years. Visit our channel: http://youtube.com/patriothoopsquad for more info!
@SB718 Well, I still say you have to actually coach a real team before you get to call yourself a coach. And the role of a back to the basket center has disappeared without question. And lots of positions have changed over the years and yielded great results. But specifically the PG position is still so crucial in the way decisions are made on the court, that this is the one spot that hasn't evolved as much as you might think. The scoring PG has been around for a long time, going back to Tiny Archibald, through Allen Iverson, til now. And one thing is clear - a team whose point guard shoots such a high percentage of their team's shots don't win championships. If his percentage gets closer to 20%, the Thunder's chances of winning go up dramatically...
And who is that "someone else" that creates for 3/5 of the lineup while Westbrook shoots so much?
@BRY BRY @DXL I just heard Skip Bayless talking about the Spurs and I found myself agreeing with him. I thought I HATED Bayless, HATED HIM, but he's been saying stuff I agree with... BTW, focus on what I said about Westbrook's shooting w/o passing first - this is the biggest issue I have.
@FF_pickups I appreciate your thoughtfulness in your comment, but its your logic that is fuzzy at best. He is NOT merely a PG on defense because he brings the ball up and initiates the offense almost every time he's in the game. This is the definition of a point guard. The Bulls and Lakers champions had PGs with few assists - but they also took few shots - and that is the premise of my argument regarding why they won't win a title. It's the percentage of his team's shots he takes. What I was saying is that he SHOULD play the shooting guard position, find a pass first point guard who will play really tough defense to bring the ball up and let Russ attack from curls and on the wing.
@BRY BRY @DXL And somehow, Russell Westbrook has been trying to change my mind about his game... is it working? Must... can't... don't... know... ;)
@DXL This is funny - I am not Reggie Jackson's offseason coach. But I am honored that you think I do coach him. And from what I've seen of RJ - he looks good and needs more of a chance.
