if OKC makes the WCF it's gonna be off talent alone

elite coaching from Kerr & Popovich puts GS & SA over the top as clear favorites for the title

Completely agree with this. If you think about, generally speaking, the games where one guy has a huge scoring night are close games. Its when teams have balanced scoring from a bunch of guys is when they separate themselves and pull ahead by double-figures. There are exceptions of course, like when Kobe got 60 against Dallas in 3 quarters and I think when Klay went for 60 against Sac last year. But those are anomalies.

Under Donovan the Thunder are allowing 1.8 PPG less compared to last year, but does anyone trust them to get enough crucial fourth-quarter stops come playoffs? Assuming OKC is able to avoid GS until the WCF, I wonder if the team defense is improved enough to defeat SA or Memphis for example.

It works so much differently in basketball. The best team usually always win.

Serious Question...is Kerr an Elite coach or is his squad just that much better than everybody else? nerd.gif

Maybe so, but I'd rather take my chances with Draymond bullying his way to the bucket for 2 or getting fouled then give up a basically uncontested 3 to Steph or Klay.

i consider him elite because he took over the same core from Jackson's tenure & turned a 50 win team to a 67 win team.

GS would've won 50+ games for the next 5 years with Mark Jackson but Kerr took them over the top & coached them to being one of the best teams of all time.

Kerr instilled what he needed to into the team so that now that Walton is running things they haven't missed a step.

It also doesn't need to be either/or. Both the team and the coach can be elite. That's usually how it works :lol

So Curry and Green haven't gotten any better, It's all just Kerr tweaking things?

Jackson instilled the committment to defense and Gentry put in the offense. So was Kerr just in the right place at the right time? nerd.gif

Outside of Pops, Stevens, Vogel, Kerr and Carlisle (and maybe SVG)... it's rather meh

I just said it doesn't have to be either/or. Curry and Green getting better is part of it too.

Since Jimmy Butler's very public criticism, "Buckets" has been enjoying a savage 2016 minus the Dallas dud. Two critiques I have are: Getting the team to compete and perform better on the road, and developing Mirotic's offensive consistency. Bulls are 24-16 and currently holding the #3 seed, to be expected shifting and transitioning from two polar opposites in HCs. Thibs had a very distinct grinding, defensive approach. Mayor's success is predicated on his offensive system. You can't expect the same core of players to seamlessly adapt a brand new mantra.

You honestly didn't meant to exclude Mayor. I'm looking forward to Shaka in the NBA as well, once he convinces his wife it's the right move.

Hoiberg is still an unknown to me, if Thibbs was still active I'd have him in that list

 

What do you like most about Hoiberg, Champ?
