  1. Man, really? I thought our plan to be bad at defense and offense was the way to go though.

    Switch everything defense!

    He will be expiring and his contract is no longer onerous, so, if he gets traded, he gets traded next year.
  4. Damn. Doc Rivers is an idiot.

    Why do I feel like you will have a new bold prediction leading into the draft?
  6. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    So, as a non college hoops guy, I think a good way to talk about these things is to talk about the scope of a player's potential. Most players never reach the upper bounds of what they are projected as possibly being in the league, so looking at any one player and saying that drafting the player will give us a player in the caliber of Chris Paul or Steph Curry is setting yourself up for disappointment. (Projections are also sometimes wrong in the opposite way, A la completely missing on the top level potential of later picks.) That isn't to say that he doesn't have star potential, but proclaiming any player to be an outlier player in the NBA prior to the player actually playing in the NBA is not much more than wishful thinking. Step back from the hyperbole and take a nuanced look at the player. What are issues that the player might face in the NBA? What weaknesses does the current player have? What is the potential upside, and how difficult will it be to overcome these hurdles?
  7. Yeah, but a lot of PGs are not good defenders and they don't impact the team drastically. Augustin is a bad defender for example, yet he isn't destroying the team's defensive ability.
  8. Weird though that a PG might have that large of an impact on a team's defense.

    It was a bad shot, but it wasn't like he was getting much help from the rest of the team. And there really wasn't that much time left. 24 points on 14 shots, 6 rebounds, 4 steals, 3 blocks. This loss was in no way on Mario.

    I was thinking of Mario's World.

    Welcome to the Mario show!

    Biz has hit at least two jumpers tonight.

    Man, Mario is the main defender on a lot of these baskets- though generally I think his defense has been at least ok.
  14. Are you feeling more comfortable with the idea that we have a decent chance of resigning Mario?

    Avery Bradley had very low value in the league. Lower than Payton's. Not sure why he'd be worth a first to anyone. 1. He is basically just an expiring contract. If a team likes him, they have less control than with EP. 2. He is statistically having one of the worst seasons of his career. This includes defensively (his main calling card in his career), where he has been average in defensive fg% and Detroit was 6 points per 100 possessions better on defense when he was off the court vs. when he was on the court.
