I'm actually surprised he's been pretty good on the defensive end, it's just that you can't get the entire team to consistently play good d, especially on the perimeter

Has any player ever obliterated a once effective defensive strategy like Dirk has done to the


"switch a SF/SG on Dirk, and crowd his space in the post"


I don't know why teams still try this. laugh.gif



He lost the NBA finals and got upset by a 1 seed because he this worked, now at 37 he gave portalnd 40 when they try it. eek.gif

It's time for Dirk to be the consensus best PF ever. Like he might have a legit 3-5 years left

Beasley is averaging 15 points in 18 minutes.

60%TS.

PER is 27.

Exactly, so they can either overpay for continued mediocrity or do what they should've done right after they drafted Davis 4 years ago mean.gif

They've basically wasted 3 years of Davis & all they have to show for it is getting swept in the first round & NO assets laugh.gif

They just HAAAAAD to have Jrue Holiday I guess. Gave up a top 10 pick AND what turned into another top 10 pick for Holiday.

It's amazing how Ownership/FO didn't see this run of mediocrity coming.

THEN they inexplicably don't move EJ or Anderson when they were well out of the playoff race laugh.gif

I just don't understand.

And he actually played PF unlike others who just wanted to avoid being only a top 5-7 Center in history.

Dirk/KG are neck and neck imo.

It's crazy to me watching these highlights that he ever had to resort to playing in China. Dude makes scoring look so easy/ho-hum. "Oh here comes the double, guess I'll spin away and go into the lane for a little hook."

I know he's been a pothead but it seems crazy that anybody that talented could be out of the league for a stretch. I've heard stories about him but he really must have been THAT bad off the court laugh.gif

There is probably an explanation for them not moving Gordon - nobody wanted him. But they should have gotten something for Anderson.

I talked with a coach on the k state staff at the time Beasley was there and he said Mike was easily the best college basketball player he'd ever seen. But he was mentally 13 years old.

The beauty of telling the World that Tim Duncan is the best PF in History even though he was a Center is, 9/10 people believe it because the record books will say it is so.

We know Duncan is a Center, my Mother/Father/Sister/Brother/Average fan doesn't know, but they believe the History book.

The World does/did this with everything.
Put it in the History book, it happened.
Take it out, it didn't.
That Power. Ska like

he put up 20 n 10 in his sleep, I remember several 30/20 games 

 

his touch and silkyness is stupid

 

a different brain in his head and hed be a top 10 player in the league easy

Only thing "arbitrary" about that is "changing positions"

Like me saying I'm the smartest woman in my family even though I'm a man. I'm not the smartest man but I am the smartest woman, if I'm a woman, so I'm going to say I'm a woman, so I can be the smartest

Arbitrary? Lol

It is in fact arbitrary. There is no official ranking by position list, it's based on personal opinion, which makes it by definition arbitrary.

I'd agree if teams didn't squander 3-1 leads, like T-Mac's Orlando team in the first year when they changed it to best of 7.

Hence the quotes around Arbitrary. It wasn't meant to mean it wasn't Arbitrary in a literal sense....

If that was over your head or you'd rather argue the definition of arbitrary rather than how weak it is for your Orginaislzation to "change" Tims position to make him look better, then let me rephrase it literally....for you

Nothing is more arbitrary than changing your position to up your arbitrary ranking. Sorted
