Rick Carlisle is elite, and probably better than Pop at making adjustments. Pop is notoriously stubborn sometimes with his lineups.

this gs vs okc better live up the hype. gs vs spurs , and last week spurs vs cavs . these high profile games havent lived up to the hype recently.

Yeah, Pop is as good as anyone there's ever been as far as creating a system and getting guys to buy in to it, but his in game/in series management isn't always superb. A lot of the decisions he made last year in round 1 of the playoffs helped the Clips win. And he made some pretty notable mistakes in the Finals when they lost to Miami. Those are just some examples. Still one of the best ever though.

I mean when we round up to the nearest exponent, 3 guys are responsible for basically 3/4 of this "epidemic". And deandre is 34% of that, saw something saying he might be the worst ft shooter of all time. That's the lion's share by any measure and hard for me to see how it's so prevalent. And I would bet a guy like capella is probably like 8% of that. It's not "more prevalent", it's just literally 3 guys getting hacked to the high heavens. The other 30% aren't getting it so bad that it slows the game to a halt and lowers the entertainment value which is really the bottom line isn't it?

They're changing the rule because of deandre jordan.

The NBA is about the players.


You can't fire Cousins. You can fire Karl. You find a coach who can coach him and get the most out of him. Until then they'll be searching.


They had that in Mike Malone but Vivek is a clown so they booted him. Shame really.

This game is going to be a good one.

Westbrook vs Curry matchup.

KD and West can go off for 40 pts each.

Steph trash talking leading into it.

I can't wait for this game.

Not really. From what I've read silver understands that you can't baby these dudes and protect them from the big bad free throw line. It looks like he'll come up with a plan that makes it so the strategy is still effective but you won't be able to cheese anymore which is cool. I don't like watching that **** either but it's really only when doc and pop or doc and mchale are fingerings each other for 3 hours that it gets out of hand. But take those 3 players out the picture and nobody is crying for a rule change because it's not that serious.
post #53209 of 93193

fools needa learn how to shoot free throws. Babies are being pampered because they can't make 10/20 free throws. 

Can't believe the league would think of accommodating for these millionaires. Well, Tony Allen can't make a lay up so let's get a mechanical rim that lowers it self when Mr.Allen is attempting a lay up, then raise it back up when he's done.

No. They're not. If it was really just him, they wouldn't do it. The Clippers aren't that popular that this is becoming an issue because only they're games are made unwatchable because of the hack-a strategy. It is impacting games across the league whether you want to believe it or not.

play defense straight up instead of resorting to cheesy tactics. they are millionaires and cant play d straight up.

Bruh, why peeps think thunder got a chance , you seen all the hype Around the spurs game, this is no different , the warriors are in a league of their own and there's no team that can stop that.

I bet if I looked hard enough I would find some numbers showing that out of all the players that get hack a shacked those 3 are the only ones to shoot 20+ free throws in a game. Deandre accounts for 34% and two others combine for 35% so it's basically the deandre jordan rule. It's the combination of being a good enough player that the coach is hesitant to take you out and being a bad enough shooter that teams are willing to give you open shots. It's 3 guys. Take those 3 out the picture and no one is crying for a rule change. Sorry mr. Lawdoggy, really no other way to spin it. Unless you have specific examples of games you've actually seen where someone besides the big 3 was getting hacked so bad that they shot 20+ free throws at below 50% and the game went on for 3 hours.

Sure there is and the numbers bear it out. But as usual, once you latch on to an idea you refuse to consider other perspectives. Do you come across IRL as an insufferable know-it-all too?

Fair enough, although it is cheesy, it is an exploitation of the opposing player. What needs to be done, will be done but being pampered by the league because you can't shoot, can't play defense, that's lousy. 

 

I would bet that if these games that these dudes that can't hit freethrows (Dwight, Deandre, etc) didn't play national televised games, the league wouldn't care. 

Maybe because those guys on upper tier level, the league wants to pampered these babies in thus helping these dudes overall. 

If Dwight or Deandre was on Utah, and we know Utah don't get no burn on the tv, the NBA wouldn't budge. 

post #53216 of 93193
Do you guys not know that the reason we even have the no-offball-foul-in-the-last-two-minutes rule is because one playe (Wilt) could not hit free throws and teams were taking advantage of it? Stop fooling yourselves into thinking the NBA won't change a rule for a handful of players laugh.gif


Good on you, Silver pimp.gif

post #53218 of 93193
What numbers? You said over 10 guys have been hack a shacked so that's 7+ guys accounting for 31% of this. And like I said before capella probably takes up a pretty big chunk out of the remaining guys. I highly doubt they're looking to change the rule because of the guys who are responsible for like less than 4% each of all the times it happens and probably shoot 8 or less free throws because of it when it's used on them. Got any specific examples of games you've watched where it was anyone besides them 3 getting hacked to that extent?

This man is close to having it

post #53220 of 93193
I expect curry and draymond to eat Westbrook on the p&rs simply because Westbrook never tries to get around screens but since the comments and it being the Warriors he might ascend into another form of point God. Also durant had 30 something at the half last time they played wanna see how he does this time.

hoping for a good game just like all the past warrior thunder games
