Bro I know you're having fun and doing your thing but look at what YOU said. YOU didn't say Top 5 PG. You said best PG. I don't recall any Clipper fan saying Paul is better than Curry this year.

 

Then you proceed to showcase an award Jamal won years ago :lol

 

Nice job man.

but on a serious note, I am saying they have a top 5 player in 4 positions

 

personally I think doc is a terrible, overrated coach

 

and the 6th man of the year award is the most pointless thing in sports

 

but the clippers are as talented as any team in the league

Then hope Kawhi can stay in front of Curry and maybe Draymond gets suckered into post ups on Green. Trying to blitz the pick and roll leads to too many open threes and dunks otherwise, so I would go away from that plan.

That could work, but I think it's going to get ugly in transition and having bigs trying to close out on shooters

I only used the Spurs because they have the best personnel to guard a Draymond-Curry or Durant-Westbrook pick and roll with Kawhi-Green. I couldn't imagine being a lower rung team. laugh.gif

if you are the spurs and guarding the dray/curry PnR, you give up the draymond 3, right? they can put kawhi on curry for stretches, and he fights through every screen for the most part, but it would be fun to see the in gm adjustments. think green starts on curry, patty comes in, kawhi down the stretch

Too many unhinged pieces, at full strength I think we're a top 3 East team but having everybody's not something we're good at and definitely not good enough to rely heavily on our rooks/3rd string

Nah I know man, I feel you, especially on the sixth man award :lol

 

But The Clippers are not as talented as any team in the league. And your talent doesn't win big in the playoffs, it's your role players. 

 

And Doc isn't a terrible coach. Brilliant X's and O's guy, but rotations sometimes are awful. The latter really matters comes playoff time, and becomes a victim to familiarity too much for my liking. But coaching in the NBA is a product of your roster.....which Doc Built :lol I like this roster though. Haven't like the rotations for most of this season though.

I'd rather contest a Draymond post up than a Draymond three at this point. As long as it's not a Curry three or Draymond surveying the floor, I'd be ecstatic.

Speaking of which, has @leemelone posted since he put the NT reverse jinx of JJ "1st Quarter" Reddick last night?

This X100. Drives me crazy to see teams throw doubles at Draymond in the post and leave someone else open for a 3. There are very, very few players in the league who I think actually deserve a double in the post and he's not one of them.

I personally minus the very rare occasions, wouldn't double any player in the league, especially during the first 3 quarters. Feel like one man can't kill a team.

 

To your point though, the amount of random double teaming that goes on in the league is mind boggling. Half of the doubles that one sees aren't even called by the coaching staff. Based purely off instinct, and this is why playing the Warriors is so tough because you have to go against your instinct, and be extremely disciplined.

If Spo is gonna keep letting Hassan play big 4th quarter minutes, I'd say the Heat the best chance to take down Cleveland.

But then again, I really don't see anyone in the conference winning more than a game off of them.

shoe, im just curious to know which team/s clippers don't have as much talent as.

People actually double Draymond in the post?

Here's what happens whenever Draymond gets doubled:

Curry/Thompson run PnR, smaller defender gets switched to Draymond as Draymond rolls to the post

Curry/Thompson throws ball to Draymond in post

The person that is supposed to guard Draymond goes to double him

Draymond kicks out to Curry/Thompson, they hit 3

CASH MONEY.

The thing is when teams go to Denver, the altitude definitely take it's toll on opposing teams. 

 

I think there was a recent article about it. 

 

I know because every time the Bulls go there, they lose but when Denver come here, vice versa.

I still think they have a chance. An outside chance of course. They've played GSW just as tough as any other team twice. They probably should have won the second meeting

 

In terms of the Spurs, Aldridge has fit in faster than I thought but Clippers have to feel good about beating them last season

 

In terms of the Thunder, their offense looks pretty much the same as it did under Brooks. Whether you think that's a good or bad thing will dictate your perception of them

is draygreen hakeem in the post? hell no
is draygreen a bully in the post? yes, especially if he's posting up a smaller player.
