Amazing game from JV tonight.
Well, I mean, Casey should've put JJ on him. (basically saying put your best defender on him, chances of stopping get a little bit bigger)
Still, the team fought damn hard.
I tip my hat.
Also, where's thead, Cavs need to go like 5-15 to finish 8th now.
Pay up now!!!
Araujo too OP, needs nerf.
OK... Um... Why did you have the entire thing on comparing guards with FG% then?
No, I read the entire convo and I'm still not sure what I'm missing. Were you implying DeMar takes smarter shots, therefore he has a higher FG%? Then why didn't it show up in TS%? Is this you trying...
Dude you compared their FG% and said Lillard should take less 3s cause they lower his FG%. I don't know what else basically explicitly says that you think DeMar is a better shooter.
At this point you're arguing moot points, no offense but I'm not sure why I bothered.
You said DeMar can shoot better than Lillard.
Changed my post to reflect that.
Reply if you wish I s'pose.
Yeah, you didn't.
But now you're missing the forest for the trees, does much change if I change that line to "DeMar can shoot better than Lowry".
EDIT: There I did, I honestly don't know why...
I wouldn't say so, he brought up FG% and found Miller to be better than Curry, and Allen to be better than Klay.
Or if you want better examples, Dragic CAN SHOOT BETTERthan Curry, and Courtney Lee...
It is because you're not taking into account the value of 3s in FG%.
Look, let's say neither Lowry nor DeMar did anything else but shoot last season when they got the ball, but they shot the same...
Actually I have a lot. Though I grew up in a smart kids neighbourhood, so they started to realize shooting all the time was kinda pointless (pun intended) and started passing more.
Not all shots should be valued the same is the point here. 3PAs are worth more than 2PAs and should be counted as such because well, 3 points is more than 2 points.
If you shoot 40% while only...
And of course it would be lower but it would be WAY lower than Lillard's is.
Well if it's not a very good catering job, why should we fault him. Not that we shouldn't, but the problem obviously isn't so much DeMar's as it is Casey's. Let's say 75/25? I mean, if that's the...
Lillard shoots 13.2% better on 3PAs than Lillard does. That is worth 0.40 per shot. in general, when DeMar shoots a 3 it's worth 0.62 pts. When Lillard shoots a 3 it's worth 1.02 pts. So... you...
DeMar takes 1.3 3PAs per game careerwise vs. Lillard who takes 6.5 3PAs per game careerwise. 5 shot difference.
Korver takes 4.5 a game careerwise and Stiemsma obviously takes 0.
So yeah, I...
I'm not so sure, I think we can agree shooting contested midrange jumpers isn't a strength of his (or anybody's really). If it was catering to his strengths, I personally believe he'd be slashing,...
Used Kyle, Greivis, Lou, and obviously Demar
USG% average: 4.2% (DeMar has USG% more than 4.2% than the other three combined on average, shorten it to Lou and kyle though and it's 2.05%)
I thought the consensus was that Casey's system was really bad in the #FireCasey thread (which I still agree with). So considering that while DeMar is taking bad shots and a lot of shots overall, his...
Thing is, if we do believe that Casey's game plan is part of it, then we should wait until he's (finally) under a good coach.
Shooting wise especially we should expect to return to his career averages if he does what he promised to do.
