Kanter is one of the best rebounders in the NBA.

Klay should shoot 4/5 times when Curry is on the bench.
We have nobody on the floor who can watch him.

Yeah he did, at the 4 minute mark of the 1st.

 

Came back very quickly though, like within 2 minutes I think

The thunder are so unimaginative on offense. It's a simple P&R with Durant with no vigor, throw to him at the top, and stand and watch and hope he creates something for someone.

 

And this isn't a function of the coach either.

imo durant has low playmaking IQ so to maximize his skills you have to simplify the game for him.

Everything a team does on offense is a function of the Coach.
Either it's his system or he doesn't stop it, either way he has to own it

Well this is terribly wrong in my opinion. 

 

Durant's IQ is pretty high for someone with such a high usage rate. Makes really good reads with the ball, and is an excellent playmaker.

 

But he plays with a bunch of players who lack the IQ, offensive imagination and movement necessary to run more complicated stuff.

"Defense was my forte," Frazier said Thursday during an interview on ESPN's "Mike & Mike" show. "I had to guard Oscar. I had to guard Jerry West, Earl the Pearl (Monroe), Dave Bing. Any phenomenal player, I had to guard. So when I'm guarding these guys, I'm trying to take away what they do best. So today if I'm guarding Curry ... he might have 25 2s on me, but he's not going to have 13 threes because I'm going to be forcing him inside of the arc."

"To me, I look at the most phenomenal seasons in the NBA," Frazier said. "Wilt Chamberlain averaging 50 points a game one season. Nate Archibald led the league in scoring and assists. The Big O averaged a triple double. But they didn't do that every year. You know what I mean? They never reached that pinnacle once they did that."

"So to me, this is where Curry is. He's having a phenomenal season. To me, a signature season. But is he going to do this for the next five years? I don't really think so.

"This is what he's doing now. Maybe they won't be able to stop him this year, but they'll have to find a way to contain this guy like they've done to Kobe (Bryant), like they're doing to LeBron (James), like they've done with all of the other superstars in the league."

Probably the most reasonable take of all the older players that have been asked about Curry.

He's 100% right

Well done

110% agree with you

But what I don't agree with is the last sentence of what Frazier had to say, Lebron and Kobe are/have (obviously not Kobe now) played at a very high and very elite level for a long time. Hell, nearly the entirety of their careers.

Maybe I'm taking it literally? Maybe not, but that's just my 2 cents

i think hes best when off the ball and catches and shoots. him running plays sounds terrible to me

 

he has gotten better cause he worked on it but a good example is his meltdown against GSW last time they played

i agree with this.  him going iso is hard to stop but i dont really think durant is a great playmaker either. i dont think of a great passer when i think of durant. adequate but not great/

No it isn't. All coaches have solid offenses bases / sets that they start from.

 

But You're fooling yourself if you think Pop, Doc, Carsile, Coach Kerr, etc. call out every single play those teams with imaginative offenses run. 

 

The best offenses in the league are by and large, the product of the random offense initiated by the players on the floor. Back screens, flair screens, pin downs, backdoors, ball movement, a lot of that is instinctual and not called by the coach.

 

Literally coach Carsile in Dallas says that he doesn't call much plays, it's called "flow." Thats what the warriors do. That's what the spurs do. You have to have the players with high enough IQ to create offense without being told in order to have the imaginative offenses that the Spurs, Warriors, etc. have.

What? 

 

I'm not talking about KD "running plays" even though you can run offense through him.

 

I'm talking about the Thunder as a team, and how simplistic they are when it comes to their offensive sets.
