It's going to be so wet out there, Dion will probably want to get his too. Dion gon' light them up Sophomore game style.

Thing is, anybody who saw the Bulls/GSW game last night knows people fall short because they try and run with GSW and out score them, and you can't employ that strategy unless you are the Thunder.

Thunder literally gives no dambs about giving up 125 to GSW and the my sure AF ain't guarding anyone off the 3py line, much less Curry.

OKC can definitely out score GSW, and there is nobody n GSW that can do anything about it, especially in 7 straight games.

Sounds crazy but y'all will see my genius and understand my conviction soon enough. This is no troll move, it just comes down to who will score more, and that's OKC

you forget the warriors can play defense tho. something you acknowledge the thunder cant do.you arent going to score as easy as you do on other squads.

okc aint winning a chip with this team. it is what it is. keep on trying to convince yourself that okc can tho. its going to be funny to laugh at you in may.

Can't believe the spread for GSW-CHI was only 6 at one point yesterday. Easiest money I've ever made in my life. A team playing Pau Gasol, Mirotic at the 3, and McBuckets has no chance against the Warriors. The untouchable Rose held his own surprisingly or else this woulda been worse than the Cav game.

Who knows, maybe Golden State will lose their 2nd and 3rd best players come postseason and they may lose a series.

OKC is 7th in defensive efficiency as of now and are top 3 as of January. Not saying OKC is a better defensive team but they are trending up.

I didn't say the Thunder can't play defense.

I said they could care less about doing it. Big difference lakersman.

And GSW can defense all they want, there is nobody who can hold Russ/KD, on any team. Playoff Tony Allen locked KD up 2 years ago, locked him up G, and he still averaged a series high by a mile.

Kanter can't be guarded either.

i just dont understand why guys dont improve their shot. guys like timmy and karl malone were bad, especially when they entered, but they became decent where you couldn't just hack them. how many yrs have deandre/dwight been in the league?

I think it's a fallacy that simply because we don't see improvement on an athlete's game, it means they haven't been working on it. I honestly think it's as simple as "Some guys will only be ____  as good at ____ skill" in their careers. Rajon Rondo could spend ten years locked away in a gym, he's not going to shoot like Ray Allen. Could he improve? Of course, but maybe his improvement will only be minor.

 

And there's a difference between being a below average FT shooter and being as bad as Deandre/Andre/Dwight. And at least in Dwight's defense, he didn't have seasons where he was shooting in in the 30-40% range, at least he was in the 50s 

 

Tim ranged from 66% to 76% back down to 61% back up to 80% and so on, so while he made improvements and had some weak early years, he was never this bad where it became a gameplan to foul.

agreed , its doesnt work like . You can practice something all you want , you got to have the talent to begin with, people have "ceilings" and no matter how much you practice you arent going to get better.

 i think its funny when people think its because they dont work on it.

These ESPN2 shows spending toomuch time bout what to do about the hack -a- strategy ( apparently they went ham on Drummond lst nite).
How bout the league do nothing but post the records of games won by that strategy. It doesnt work. (Pistoms still won the game )

That Ninja Rose was BYKE but will go back to normal comes Friday against the Celtics...


Then Ninja Rose will be BYKE again against the Cavs on Saturday.

People always complain about the hack-a-shaq strategy, but how about the players that suck at FTs do a improve-your-FTs strategy
They got all the resources to improve yet cats like Deandre Jordan and Drummond shoot at paltry levels

 they can do that during the regular season alot of the times but they cant do that in the playoffs. teams play harder obviously and your weaknesses get magnified. okc just aint good enough w, they arent winning with that iso offense and team as constructed . iso offense doesnt work in the playoffs. a-friend knows this , he knows ball. 

 

. Good regular season team but thats where it ends.

what eastern team would come close to beating the warriors, spurs, thunder and clippers in a 7 game series?

:| it doesnt work like that.  its not that difficult to understand. 

post #44634 of 93193
were talking about FREE THROWS. it's the part of the gm where you get a shot from like 15ft where nobody is defending you. you work on it in practice, now translate it to gm. giving guys a pass for not being able to make it at a decent rate eyes.gif
were not talking about some guy working on post moves or trying to extend his gm to the three pt line.

rick barry reached out to shaq, but dude declined. said he had too much pride to be asking for help and the thought of shooting underhand was below him. he's reached out to others in the league, but guys just dont make that effort

You know these guys are putting in hours every practice to get better right? Do you think they just skip free throws altogether? laugh.gif


I don't mind the strategy but when the spurs are doing it in the 2nd qurter when they have the lead....

I was getting home at near midnight some of those games laugh.gif
post #44636 of 93193

practice does not make perfect

 

perfect practice makes perfect

 

 

you can practice all you want but if you're doing it wrong you're only adding to your bad habits

these guys are ridiculous thinking its just laziness.  i can practice something all i want , if im not good at it , all the practice in world  aint going to mean ish. they use blake , tim d and malone (these dudes actually shoot during games, or have a set shot aside from fts)  but look at the guys that cant shoot fts and dont improve . they really have no shot at all period. dwight , drummond , jordan. when you see these dudes ever taking a jumper or shot outside of a few feet from the basket

. everything is close to the basket for them dudes.

Lol Derrick is the epitome of playing up to his competition

Average point guards don't get him up no more

He will probably light Kyrie up for a quick 8 points and then they'll have to put someone else on him like they did in the playoffs
post #44639 of 93193
I feel like guys like DeAndre/Drummond should try to bank in all their FTs. Line drive style.

They need to swallow their pride and throw it in underhand
