So has Kawhi really unlocked the secret to an elite 3 point shot? Or has he just been hot through 25 games? Because a 12-13 point jump from his previous career average is insane.

Nope. Not until Billy D can give up playing that all bench unit and give up on DJ Augustine, Kyle Singler, and Nick Collison altogether (or they can stop playing poorly). Lowkey, Adams been locking dudes up defensively lately too

From a couple games ago, but does anyone have the video when Jason Williams did this off Steve Francis's back and hit a 3 from the timeline?

I mean to be an elite 3 point shooter, he just needs to shoot 40% on a decent volume. He's a 38% shooter from 3 for his career. So while 50% probably isn't sustainable, 40%-42% on about 4 threes per game is elite, and attainable for him.

Pretty sure he was wearing his own brand by that time. I'm not sure the last Reebok model, but I think he stopped wearing them a year or two after getting to LA.

I think one of the last Reeboks was actually named the Steel, after that stupid *** movie he made laugh.gif and that was 97.

Cavs are not gonna have a cake walk to the Finals this season.

I wonder what the Pacers would look like today with PG13 and Kawhi.
post #32077 of 93193
I'll believe kawhi is a great 3 point shooter at the halfway mark. But he's as legit as they come. I hope he isn't the Reggie Wayne of the NBA. He's too quiet

I'm not discrediting him either, but I'd be shocked if we see his 3pt % stay that high all season. Maybe not a full on regression to his averages, but he's shooting more per game and improved his shot by double digits? That doesn't happen too often in one season.

The Warriors have had it with the Bucks

 

"Oh, it was a nice celebration. We do remember that stuff." reigning MVPStephen Curry said Wednesday night after a 128-103 win over the Phoenix Suns. "We were kind of laughing at some of the stuff going on. It was a big game for them. Friday will be a big game for us."

 

At the end of the Saturday's game, Bucks guard Michael Carter-Williams dunked the ball and stared down Golden State's bench, an act Warriors forward Draymond Greendescribed on Bay Area radio station KNBR.

 

"Michael Carter-Williams getting a dunk at the end of the game and looking at our bench like, 'Dude you lost your spot,'" Green said of Carter-Williams losing his job as a starter. "So, it's not quite common that you should be looking toward someone's bench yelling. You've got some ground to make up."

 

Klay Thompson agreed the rematch with the Bucks was "going to be fun."

 

"There's nothing wrong with the dunk, but the stare-down, trying to talk nasty in the game like that," Thompson said. "And it's like, 'All right, you're going to see us next Friday and in our building, too.'"

 

Thompson will be coming off a season-high 43-point performance against the Suns, 27 of which came in the third quarter.

 

"We're looking forward to it, man," Thompson said. "Obviously a team that gave us our one in the loss column, and we felt they could have won with a little more class."

I can realistically see him shooting 44-45%. Given the amount of open looks he gets from the 3, I don't see him having a long enough stretch to drop his % down to the high 30's or even low 40's. Just rounding up, he's basically at 100 3pt attempts right now through 25 games. He took 192 last year only through 64 games, which was a career high for him. Let's just say he plays 75 games this year and takes 300. I can see him making 135 of those (already at 49 makes).

hahahahaha I'll be watching that game. 

Bucks are gonna get their tails blown out from the back.

I don't doubt that the Bucks are going to get destroyed next game.. but hearing the Warriors complain about another team going overboard and needing to play with more class is hilarious to me.

 

They've been showboating and hot dogging for two years. Of course... they absolutely deserve to since they're not only the champs, but one of the most dominant teams we've seen in recent times.. but them getting the smallest taste of their own medicine and not liking it is pretty funny.

would be really funny if the bucks beat them again.

What's even more funny is that OJ Mayo of all people would be leading them at PG.

I don't think 25 games is just being "hot". I also don't think he'll keep this crazy pace.

I see him finishing around 41% which I would consider elite. And I may have to apologize to Antelope because I was on the train that didn't consider him a superstar player. I think it was just the braids tbh.


Wait, I re-read your question and my answer and I guess I am saying he is just hot theough the first 25 laugh.gif But I don't think he'll dip down to like 34% or anything. He's a good 3pt shooter now.

I am completely confident in pop messing up the spurs chances jn the postseason with some ill-advised, over coaching decision. Whether its intentionally fouling someone when they dont need to, playing danny green more than he needs to, not playing jonathan enough in the posteason, something

I used to mess with this chick whose dad is a scout for the Spurs. He broke down whatever year the draft that Cousins was in. Let me read his notes and everything. Would talk to me about the conference calls they had. It was really cool to see how one ofnthe best teams in the league scouts.


I don't remember much of what we talked about but I do remember asked him who he would take #1 and if Cousins was worthy of it. He said Cousins was by far the most talented player with the most potential but he would never take him because he was crazy laugh.gif I don't really follow College hoops so I'm sure this was a well known thing but every time I hear/see Cousins doing some emotional stuff I think about that conversation laugh.gif

He also was high on PG and said the Clippers would most likely land him mean.gif


I've also talked to professional athletes and for the most part, yea, they sound like they spend a lot of time in S&T.
