Chalmers trade rumors.
Chalmers was with Gerald.
Chalmers has a sore ankle.

Hmmm.

Jordan never suffered the devastating injuries Kobe did at such a late point in his career

 

You just can't defeat father time nor injuries

 

It's not really as easy as saying "Kobe could play closer to the basket"

Sounds like Gerald Green is okay, but the fact that they are still whispering about this doesn't seem so bueno. Good thing he is healthy tho

Kobe Can't play closer to the basket that's the difference. He's trying to. Kobe been playing out the post for the past half decade basically, it's just now due to age, injuries, etc. he's literally not physically capable of consistently getting good positioning for post up opportunities. So as a result, when he catches it it's an iso at the 3 point line.

Chris Martin Palmer @ChrisPalmerNBA

Steph Curry on pace for 459 threes. Which would shatter his own NBA record of 286.

 

John Schuhmann @johnschuhmann

It's super early, but Stephen Curry ranks as the league's 3rd most IMPROVED shooter:

 

Synergy Sports Tech @SynergySST

Stephen Curry is shooting 59% from 3PT range in the pick & roll, 57% in isolation situations, and 67% in transition.

Okafor has been so damn impressive so far. Looks like he belongs out there, handling double teams, playing his game.

 

I know there's still the argument that his style of play isn't what you build around these days, but whatever.. you find a way with his kind of talent. Between him and Noel, they should be good.

I wonder how great Okafor's post game would be if he went to college for more than a year.

Sarcasm.

Okafor's ability to dribble/pass out of a double team is advanced for his age

only a week into the season but this draft class is making an immediate impact

lowkey plays like he's been playing in the league for years already. KAT too.

D.Lo plays like he started hooping on Tuesday and the only background hoops history he knows is scenes from basketball diaries

We're saying the same thing. Scott needs to get Kobe off the ball and moving on the baseline where he can catch and attack quickly.

I think Okafor is gonna be a monster. This wide open up and down play is great, but having a big guy to dump it down to who can go to work down there is a lost art.

Kobe and attack quickly will never again be used in the same sentence describing his play. You have to accept that. Recovering from those injuries is a hell of a thing, especially if you have as much mileage as Bryant does

post #10216 of 93193
You watch Kobe and you should notice he has NO moves whatsoever anymore. No more between the legs, crossovers, anything. It's either a catch and shoot or multiple pump fakes into a jump shot.

Depressing.

I can't imagine Kobe's ego lets him retire mid-season.

 

I know it might be just as bad to play on a bad team, putting up the worst numbers of your career, but I would be shocked if he retires before the end of the season.

It's not even that complicated Kobe tore his shoulder in what January, wasn't able to shoot until late September, then gets a leg injury that keeps him out for half of the preseason.

He looked like he had lift on his jumper and was still able to get to the pinch post area for the most part with ease. Now for a guy that shoots thousands of shots each day to not be able to shoot consistently for 7 months and you factor in the conditioning aspect to get your body acclimated back to NBA game action that he's not been able to do as well that's what you get a a result.

The 1st half of the 1st game was pretty good on him getting the ball where he wanted, but since then I don't know if the leg is still not there yet or what but this is basically his preseason, I still think he can turn it around.
