Rings are irrelevant when it comes to a new team. A new beginnings. Does Pau still plays like when he won those rings? 

No.

It's still very early.

 

I have no idea what's wrong with Chicago. 

 

But I've watched a bit of OKC and of course LAC. OKC is getting better. They don't consistently defend however and that hurts them. Durant has been injured too, which obviously has an effect on their record. Same with LAC. LAC has struggled with health, missing their starting backcourt for quite a bit this year. But they've won 6 of 7 as well. 

 

It'll all work itself out and eventually the top four will be GSW and some combination of SAS / LAC / OKC

Knowing when and where and how each other play. 

It's still early for Chicago but with players playing half-donkey, the potential won't be reached. 


Guys here over analyzing things. I guess that‘s fine and another subjective subject in itself.

What constitutes chemistry though?

All this GSW propaganda, and guys out here saying how teams lack this and that because they aint coming out games with a W. lol

Mark Cuban said up front that his latest gripe about NBA officiating didn't impact the Mavericks' loss to Atlanta Wednesday.

Their crummy shooting and lack of tough-mindedness took care of that.

But Cuban believes referees have stopped calling defensive three-second violations, allowing defenders to camp out in the paint without fear of being whistled and giving the offensive team a free throw.

And it's changing the way the game is played, he said.

"Something this year has changed," Cuban said. "I know it's not the league. Somewhere along the line, officials have chosen not to call defensive three seconds.

"We've had multiple games already this year. The last one we turned in, and the league agreed, that they missed nine defensive three calls. And these aren't (close). These were six, seven, eight and in one case, nine seconds, of standing in there. It's not a tough rule.

"I don't know what's happened, but it's changed the game. We're starting to tell our guys just stand in the paint and don't move. But some teams have figured it out before us. It's just wrong. And I don't know who came up with the decision."

Cuban said the league sent out a memo saying that defensive three seconds would be a point of emphasis. Somewhere below that, he said, it appears that a conscious decision has been made to not call the violation.

"They weren't just obvious, they were blatant," Cuban said. "If you just zone up and put a guy in the paint, it impacts the game. But it wasn't relevant to the game today. We were just missing shots. This is a bigger issue, whether it impacts us or somebody else. Something happened.

"Either you're in there and actively guarding, or you're not. So something's going on. It's not relevant specifically to the Mavs. It's relevant to the league and how it's being officiated. I have no idea. So as is my nature, if I can't get answers, I'll let other people help me find answers."

The league has a system in place where teams can turn in calls that they believe were missed. Every team uses that system.

Cuban said that some teams around the league have figured out already that they can pack in their defense without fear of getting called for defensive three seconds, which is supposed to be whistled when a player is not within guarding distance of any specific player for more than 2.9 seconds.

Cuban said the league has agreed that the rule has been missed by referees.

"They agree with us," he said. "To their credit, at least they're being transparent. When guys miss calls, they miss calls. Sometimes they benefit you, sometimes, they don't.

"But we're sitting there and counting out loud, right? And we've turned in multiple games where there are seven, eight, nine missed defensive three seconds and the league agrees with us, what does that say? I have no idea. I'm asking questions more than saying I know where to find the answers."

He said teams are learning to use the lack of whistles regarding defensive three seconds in their favor.

"The game is changing," he said. "I don't know if all of them are. But you saw the game tonight. Maybe we're just the ones that are stupid and I missed the memo. You can quote me: Mavs are stupid and choose to follow the rules. But we'll try to adjust to that and see what happens.

"Maybe you guys can ask the refs: is there a concerted effort not to call defensive three seconds now? All evidence points to something going on."

Bruh, I seent that too! He threw a stupid lazy pass to butler in the post, got intercepted real quick. 

Then another time, Thomas drove on him and he didn't rotate. He knew it and said my bad. Then this fool gonna walk in the back court along with four of the Celtics players. 

Like dude, run up!

This is real.

Penny Hardaway is coaching a boy's basketball team at a local Memphis high school.

Can you imagine Penny Hardaway or any of your NBA idols growing up being your high school coach? eek.gif I'm sure the majority of these kids were just being born post Penny's Magic career, but still that's huge.

FIrst of all, Dion sucks. He is horribly inefficient, but he's one of those players who eye test projects him to be better than he really is and that's probably why Presti was in love with him and even gave up a 1st rd pick to get him. He's a sub40%fg shooter who doesn't get to the line at a high rate or finish and the majority of his shots are long mid range 2s (stepbacks at that) which he shoots terribly.

Ibaka is a nerly 40% 3pt shooter, but for some reason Billy D doesn't want him taking them, especially above the break (which was his specialty along with the corner under Brooks) so you'll see him catch the ball there wide the **** open, start to shoot, then do some weak dribble hand-off screen nonsense. I understand creating s more robust offense, but at the end of the day whatever you do has to fit the skills of your personnel. Ibaka should be shooting when he is open. You allso end up with Ibaka taking more 21ft 2s than ever right now too.

Westbrook and KD are fine. WB;s defense could still be addressed, but basically he's far from the reason we lose.

Not enough Morrow, I understand he's a bad defender, but he needs to get minutes and when he does, needs to get shots.

DJ and Kyle Singler, failure of a trade, both stink. Get Payne in there, no way he can play worse than DJ at this point. Doesn't defend, doesn't pass, isn't making shots. Only got signed because he used to be KD's hommie at UT

The biggest thing too with Billy D, that Brooks eventually figured out, was staggering the starters' rest. These all bench units to start the 2nd and the 4th are losing us games, flat out.

Nick Collison is stealing money, needs to go be a family man, run for political office here as he's so revered, turn the state Blue (Liberal).

The Josh Huestis thing, don't get me started. Yea he's just the 15th man, but you could still have someone there who could give you something if ever called upon, even bought PJ3 back but like a KJ McDaniels too didn't he get sent down and his rights renounced.

Kantner, if he's going to be here, needs more touches. I saw some #s on lineups with the starters and him instead of Adams and offensively it was like 150 or something stupid. He has amazing hands to catch and finish and quick putbacks, so him with Russ has always been great offensively. The spacing of throwing KD and Ibaka in there too only enhances options. I like him catching on the move and offensive putbacks even better than pure post ups. Save those for when he plays with the all subs lineup. It's not a backup 5 out there who can check him and you limit Dion's nonsense stepbacks

Chemistry, like I said is when players on the team knows their own teammates tendencies and they take that into considerations and cover their flaws with their advantage. 

The intangibles that is not on paper. You watch Warriors play basketball for 48 minutes, now watch those teams that were named, watch them play basketball. 

You'll see chemistry and intangibles. You'll see adaptations and intelligent basketball.

Yeah, but unfortunately, only time I watch ESPN is when the games are actually on. 

Last time I've watched any segments of ESPN or what so ever, was probably 2 years ago, if even. 

 

Yes, Pau plays.... but does he plays for his teammates or he just... PLAYS.

That is the question.

Yups.. Seen this talk all too often with Sportscenter. While I understand that winning cures everything, people are now looking at the Warriors‘ success as the new benchmark and definition of "chemistry".

Before it was the Spurs, and how they did better than the Heats, how they had more "chemistry". What I‘m seeing here is just a lot of talk and panic when fans expect their teams to be at so and so record.

Now suddenly chemistry is taking blame?

Now suddenly all other teams have no chemistty because they are winning below expectations? lol

This is the legit propaganda I am talking about.

One thing though, I can under chemistry needing time, and how a new coach can reset things. But come on. These guys do a lot of praticing, film study, etc, scrimmaging together. Chemistry ain‘t some unachievable thing.

Team Usa didnt need 82 games to develop chemistry, but you get the point.

Right, I get your point. Definitely, new coach, new minutes, new line ups, new systems, Chemistry isn't gonna come quickly, I understand that. 

A little hasty, sure but when the problem continues game by games that makes it into a habitual repetition, that doesn't work for the team as the season progresses.

I can see maybe Hoiberg will learn from his mistakes. Okay. But at least, at the very least, the players should hold themselves accountable.
