There are a lot of things that add up to a loss. KD played great up until the last minute where he didn't execute. We are not discounting what he did for 47 minutes. But to make crucial mistakes in the last minute of the game when the ball is out in your hands for a reason. Makes it easy to say hey he seriously messed up.

If he made the correct calls and executed down the stretch than OKC walks away with a win and there is no steph shot

but cmon I don't where you learned to play ball but I was taught in a low clock scenario where the ball handler gotta go the length of the floor, you have to make the ball handler change directions.

Roberson is a good enough defender to be able to contain for a split second. Cause disruption in Steph's mind. 

 

My issue here is the COMPLETE LACK OF RESISTANCE in that last sequence. There was ZERO resistance. ZERO.

 

I am simply saying to provide SOMETHING in the form of resistance.

 

I am not saying to aggressively pick him up at half. But simply be there and make Steph do something other than walk right into a comfortable shot.

 

Remove comfort.

Remove comfort.

Remove comfort.

 

Is all I am saying

I'll agree with DC on this, Roberson has to pick up Curry once Curry catches it at the Chesapeake Arena logo.

Roberson even turned around nonchalantly just before Curry crosses half court. laugh.gif

You have to make ANY ball handler change directions, let alone a dude who can pull from 40 feet.laugh.gif

I simply see people having differing opinions on the topic. Why does that have to turn into personal attacks? Why can't folks simply have a conversation? 

 

Doug Collins echoed the same point I brought up. Make it not so easy for him. (Referring to Steph in the last seconds). I guess he never played basketball either

Where I learned how to play basketball taught me to know the strengths, weaknesses, and tendencies of your opponent. As well as the time and score.

 

ALL of that tells me Steph is liable to let that thing fly at ANY given moment in a NORMAL situation. But all of a sudden we shouldn't think it has a chance of happening when time is running down? I don't get that logic at all man.

 

I think dudes that are arguing against Roberson picking up are still hell bent on him STRAPPING up like he is Tony Allen or something. Or aggressively picking him up and allowing an easy blow by.

 

There are levels to on ball defensive pressure fellas

It wasn't a general statement. You made a statement about Donovan's last second play call and what happens isn't always the play that's drawn up.

When that CLEARLY was the play

Again, I was making a general statement.

Kobe wasn't this efficient. Kobe didn't have this type of gravity as a player that season. Stop it.

I ******* knew you were gonna bring up ts% or Per or something laugh.gif. Like clockwork

You have a valid point but it's totally subjective. Like saying a honda is better than a Lambo because it gets better gas mileage.

Yea dudes are talking about, "It takes take to break a habit."

We aren't talking about Jabari Brown or Patrick Christopher. Somebody who an NBA Player might not automatically remember the strengths/weaknesses of. We are talking about the best shooter that ever played in the league. You know what you have to do vs. him (Whether it works if a different story), but you know you have to guard him THAT far out with less than 4 seconds remaining.

 

I don't buy the, "But that isn't what you were taught as a kid" logic. Nah.

post #64365 of 93193
It takes a while to break a habit. A habit is something so ingrained in you, you don't even realize you're doing it. Takes many reps of conscious thinking and going against what you're taught to learn how to break your unconscious thinking.

At least give opponents the season to learn what they need to learn

Son's shooting is unprecedented and needs an unprecedented way of thinking on defense to battle it

So risk him blowing by you for a potential layup, because he had plenty of time to get that far, instead of getting back and force a contested long shot? NO good defender would do that. It just looks bad because curry decided to take an awful shot. Also, I'm assuming he thought there'd be a timeout called. I'm not gonna kill him in that situation. A lot of factors went into play.

For whatever reason, people cannot accept that the dude made a 40 footer.... Somebody has to be blamed (instead of giving credit where it is due) for this failure.

If curry had gotten the rebound and simply hucked a one handed shot from 75 feet, people would still be upset with the defense played against him.

if roberson got up on him, steph wouldve just drove by him with ease. he pulled up from near halfcourt. nothing u can do about it

Why are we so sure of this? Why are we pretending that Steph has never been contained for a single possession?

 

When you guarantee that Roberson would have been blown by, that is exactly what you are doing.

 

But ok, I tap out of this discussion. We have been going at it since last night.

Huh man.

 

If it was anybody else, I can understand.

 

Not that dude.

Not bashing man. Just having a conversation. Nothing more, nothing less. You are right, it is so fast and it takes time to process stuff. And maybe he didn't pick up because he was afraid of what would happen and it is "easier" to get beat by a 40 footer.

Chris Jackson.Which is the best comparison to Steph in terms of a player from the past.

 

Makes perfect sense and is a good reference point.

 

He wasn't doing THIS but if you had to write a police report on their games, it would basically be identical.

I would like to see players stats in these exact situations. I agree, trailing and hitting a game winner is pure pimp.gif
