Bottom line is you don't have to condition your guys for half court presses every game, just do it for Steph. Detroit made the Jordan Rules, (albeit under the WWF era) teams should make Curry rules.

You DO realize nobody is talking about pressing up on him in NORMAL half-court situations right?

It's a difficult conundrum for sure, but it's not JUST Roberson. 

 

All of OKC should have been sprinting to get in front of the ball so that if Roberson is throwing some type of pressure on him, steph may be forced into a more difficult shot, or into a pass, etc.

 

I'm not saying to OD pressure him, but just pick him up and try to turn him a bit to take some type off the clock. While you're giving some semi light pressure, you should have help because your team should be in front of the ball if they are busting their tails to get back AND roberson is applying some type of pressure.

 

THere's a chance GSW still wins even if they do the aforementioned, but running away from Steph Curry with 6 seconds left certainly isn't the answer. There's better alternatives than that that could have helped their chances.

What?

 

The idea isn't to "Try and lock up an elite player on a fastbreak at half court" man it's to get him to work the ball up the floor, wasting seconds in the process. It's six seconds. If The Thunder bust their *** to get in front of the ball and Roberson picks up Steph to apply some type of pressure, it makes things a tad bit harder for GSW and gives OKC a better chance.

For real for real. Should have been trying to foul him before he reached half court. Immediately. Two FT's better than a 3, and if he went to heave it from 3/4 court expecting contact, then back off and let him heave it.

You are TOTALLY disregarding the SPECIFIC situation we are speaking of.

 

We are talking about tonight's game man.

 

The last play of the game. He could have easily been picked up sooner.

 

That is all we are saying

It's like you forget what team you're talking about. You think shifting the defense to gather close to Steph at half court won't result in a layup on a fast break? Really? If ANYONE stepped up for help D, then curry would make the right play like usual and it's end up like usual

These things don't happen in the NBA for a reason. Especially in a transition/ semi transition scramble.

I guarantee if Roberson steps up, steph finds the open man with easier look then a pull up jumper from 35 feet

Whether its steph, Kobe, Jordan, whoever, when it's 6 seconds left on the clock I don't agree with allowing them to coast up the floor and get the shot that they want.

Steph skews things a bit because of his ridiculous shot selection, but in those circumstances you don't want him (or any great player) to walk into any shot.

Lol exactly.

Yes and No.

 

If KD didn't foul out, sure, take the foul. Go ito Double OT.

 

But, I am sure they didn't want those problems with them in another OT WITHOUT KD

post #64154 of 93193

Roberson could have stepped up, made Steph change directions, make the shot attempt a tad more difficult. (Probably wouldn't have mattered honestly, it is Steph).

 

But to let him casually job up court, and shoot from 38 feet, I don't understand how you let HIM do that

post #64155 of 93193

just got off work but when i saw the shot at work, the whole place went nuts. LETS GOOO. okc be a peasant team bruh. they aint touching the dubs

True, but that takes a min to condition the mind. Naturally cats are not expecting that shot nor that it has almost a 70% chance of going in.

Yea I'm thinking the 3 tied it, hell it won the damn game. 

 

Oh well, it's over, GSW won another regular season game. Next.

It shouldn't take a min to condition the mind when dude already hit 11 3's before that moment.

Easier said than done. Hard to break 10-15 years of basketball habit because one player just starts going bananas from 3 one season. The way Steph was covered on that last shot would've been more than sufficient for any other basketball player.

Easier said than done plus they were expecting them to call a TO. Curry is hard to guard. Can shoot n dribble plus he like automatic from the line. Lol basically lose by two or by one in your scenario.

Dude, I am saying on the LAST POSSESSION, to pick up the world's greatest shooter and make him take an "uncomfortbale" shot.

 

Stop downplaying the adaptability of these dudes man.

 

That is just a defensive lapse more than anything.

 

But you are right, it is easier said than done.

You are wasting your time bro. It's obvious they have never played organized ball on a high level, smh.

He was covered only on the release.

 

The look, the gather, was uncovered.

 

He shouldn't have been able to get a clean look, and gather his shot so easily.

Yes and thats exactly what i want. Ill take my chances with a role player over potentially the greatest shooter ever who has already hit 11 threes. Theres no way u ever really played ball tho after that first comment

And why are you acting like Steph would have easily blown by Roberson in the first place. 

 

I am not saying Roberson would or wouldn't have been able to contain him for a few seconds, but why are we so sure Roberson WOULDN'T have been able to at least turn him and make a more difficult decision?

 

My issue is Steph didn't have to concern himself with defense AT ALL.

 

THAT shouldn't have been the case

You're talking like he took a 15 foot jumper, lol.

Pick your poison.

when games on the line in any sport isnt it taught the best player doesnt beat you ... ill take an open guy other than Curry shooting a shot


Yall talkin about its not smart to pick him but sames dudes talkin bout teams game plan for steph himself .. so you tellin no where in that game plan you discuss his range.

Cmon man ... idc im stickin with it you pick him up asap because you know damn well where the ball is goin just like the ball went to KD end of regulation.

You pick steph up asap if he blows by you then so be it, but hes puttin the ball on the floor and possibly using some kinda dribble crossover move or w/e which is ticking time. Yeah he may still get a shot off but he isnt casually walking into a comfortable shot. If he drives past you and passes it EVEN BETTER someone else has to beat you not the best player. And at that time, the next best option to make a shot was who? Because Thompson and Green were in the back court. Barnes was open to the left i think ... either way its not the best guy takin the shot OR hes dribblin and has to pull up quick n throw it up (which could go in but its not an easy look)


The way some of you post make it seem like you havent played competitive ball or never played someone better than you. Acting like things dont ever change in the last moments of the game

Lol exactly my point and DC acting like the previous 11 were all last min half court shots. DC have you played organized ball on a high level? Seriously, because it's makes a difference in perceptions.
