Sarcamento #Kings PG Darren Collison (hamstring) out indefinitely, says MRI results were "not good" https://www.fanduel.com/insider/2015/11/08/video-kings-pg-darren-collison-out-indefinitely/

Yikes.

Yeah, so maybe this isn't the year the Kings get back into the playoffs . . .

Didnt say it was illegal, what I said was I dont view that as a legitimate basketball play. Pulling the chair can hurt somebody man, you can't just do that and leave someone to stumble and fall with no support.

 

I hate seeing it man.

 

inb4 I'm mad because Karl Malone did it to Tim Duncan or something.

Your contrarian argument is flawed.

You can't say flopping is okay because it uses the refs to your advantage but then argue against pulling the chair, which is a clever basketball play using your opponents momentum against him.

If you don't like one, you don't like both.

The difference is that with Flopping there is little potential for you to hurt the other person, whereas I don't think the same can be said of pulling the chair.

Idk man. I feel like Blake has maxed out his range to 20ft. Just doesn't seem like a fluid enough shooter to expand his range to the 3 line.

I could be wrong though. He's literally improved his game step by step every year. He's only 26. Blake at 28/29 could conceivably have a consistent 3-ball. Paul Milsap like. That'll be scary.

Speaking of Milsap, I never thought he'd reach this level as an NBA player. Thought he'd be a 14/12 guy. He's regressed as a rebounder and become a more rounded perimeter oriented PF. Crazy how his game has grown.

I legit can't believe guys are even mentioning KD/Russ in the same sentence. Like, I can't even acknowledge trying to compare the two is where I'm at with it.

no shots to Russ.

Just a sad day for KD

They're both top 5 players. The gap isn't as wide as you'd like it to be.

Always thought Millsap had a solid 18 footer, but you're right his transition from backup energy big to starting stretch four has been crazy to watch.

Pulling the chair is essential to post defense.
post #11925 of 93193
Russ at the end of last year was putting up numbers prime Jordan was. He's earned the comparison. I was once in the OKC should trade Russ for Rondo camp.

I've been hard on Russ before. It's not just his Mamba blood.

Russ is the modern day Big O. KD and Russ are shooting the same percentage overall this season 48%. Russ is also giving you 10.5 assists a game plus 7 boards as a PG and 27 points a game. It's a small sample size but right now it's not crazy think that he's the better player. I'd say it's Kobe-Shaq status at least circa 2003.

Exactly. Dude leads the league in assists right now, while hitting shots from damn near half court to send games into OT.

Russ is cooking.

Na. Maybe if you had said, every once in a while, I'd believe you.

Honestly, does Russ know what flopping is? laugh.gif

He should, as this is only from this season, and I didn't have to dig and search for these either. Just say you don't like Harden already.

Yall should realize all those stats aren't effective with KD off the court. Westbrook's successful output statistically (and intangibly) is partially (significantly) a product of KD.

It's not nearly the same case the other way around

Actually they are. Most of Russ's assists are to Kanter and Ibaka off drawing 2 defenders or in pick N roll. And if you've watched Thunder games this season except for the end of the game situations when Russ is off the floor KD is even less aggressive even one would think he'd take charge.

I don't see how you can say those aren't effective when we have what he did last season while KD was out. Was it always resulting in wins no, but they're both playing well and now and it hasn't translated yet.
