Is it just me or is Val the only true centre in the league who is forced to race out and contest three point shots several times a game?
This is reductio ad absurdum. Drummond is yes, a hyper-athletic freak, but he also has a brain and is a willing student.
The Hollinger rankings now have us at 12, behind the Pelicans, and Stein has us at 13. We need to tighten up pretty much everything.
Changing perceptions is a glacial process, CRF. This one thing isn't going to change anyone's minds, but it is another step towards eroding the mental barriers that make players instantly eliminate...
Well Kyle's mentioned the whole country multiple times in his thank-yous, so at the very least he gets it. But I think him beating DWade will get noticed by the players. Having an unassuming, gritty...
I would say "since Casey", because when he came to Toronto he was on the verge of washing out of the league. Pacers fans hated him IIRC.
Lol, dude, what?
TRoss with DeMar before DeMar's injury: 10.7PPG, 41.9%3PT, 57.2%TS
TRoss without DeMar: 12.6PPG, 35.8%3PT, 51.2%TS
As for DeRozan's knee... what exactly are you talking...
I remember when people said DeMar became a placeholder as soon as Ross was drafted.... Now Ross is a placeholder for Bruno.... In a few years Bruno will be a placeholder for our 2018 draft pick.... ...
Good god.... OP posted so many horrible trade ideas in the trade forum, and yet he could see the talent in Whiteside....
I think we've found Bryan Colangelo.
This is one thing I definitely can't put on Casey. With DeMar out, TRoss had every opportunity in the book to show us something. Instead he got benched for Greivis Vasquez. We even cut JJ's minutes...
From the game thread last year.... I bet this guy feels like a knob:
I put a post from Vantage Sports on the Raptors' hedging strategies in the Stats thread, there is some Val info there for those who missed it.
Whale? Is he some local rapper?
Speaking of defense, here's Vantage Sports with an in-depth look at showing/hedging/dropping back on the pick and roll. Pretty awesome stuff.
It'll take some time for that team game to stick with people. Early 2000s Pistons had to rely on coaches' selections for a while IIRC.
I was the one arguing against it, and posted an article with relevant quotes.
Here are the final votes, great showing for Val:
LeBron James (Cle) 1,470,483
Pau Gasol (Chi) 974,177
Carmelo Anthony (NY) 647,005
Marcin Gortat (Was) 570,005...
broke_3 is JJ, you guys. His pic about being blessed is right there in the thread. So much for any internal drama.
Still got one day left on the bet. At least we can all agree that as shitty as things are, they were much shittier before.
HELL FUCKING YEAH WE DID IT!!!!i!!
Casey said he doesn't get a hug until he makes 100 threes. To get playing time he needs to make 1000 threes.
