Rose had a decent 3 in the MVP season and the next year. He didn't play enough for it to mean much, but in 13-14 he was hitting them at a decent clip too. Then last year he totally cratered. Possibly due to the injuries and the time spent rehabbing. Probably fell in love with them too and shot too many difficult ones, too.

At least he only took 2


And considering his vision is screwed up, it's hardly a great time to criticize his 3pt shot.


I think we have enough of a sample size at this point......

But why bring it up now? After a game when the guy has blurry vision and only put up 2 three point shots. "Boy he sure does look awkward doing that thing that his injury is diminishing his ability to do well, and that he didn't do well to begin with and barely attempted last night...."

I mean...cool. Thanks for bringing it up and stuff.

I also thought it was really [expletive] weird timing for him to bring that up for the reasons you mentioned.

If Rose limits them to a few open looks a game, rather than actively looking for that shot, I think he should be fine.

Absolutely. And Hoiberg's offense seems to favor a lot of 3 point shots (although they only took 17 last night). If those shots are in the flow of the offense then I am fine with it. It's when he does heat checks or dribbles for 5 seconds near the 3 point like then hops back and launches one where I have issues because he's not a good enough shooter to take those shots regularly.

Because he's the guy that even Kyle probably thinks is too negative.

I still contend that he needs to be able to stick 3s at a decent clip in catch and shoot situations or when defenders are just gonna go way underneath ball screens if the offense is going to reach its potential.

I'm kind of torn on Noah right now. I love the guy, but I've got serious questions as to how effective he'll be in Hoiball. It wouldn't be that tough though if I didn't truly think Portis is going to be damn good.
Additional rule: you have to have one or the other.The only exception is you have an amazing board name. davell, I'm looking at you; put up a [expletive] avatar or something if your name only sounds like somebody tried say Dave as they lapsed into a coma.

Broken feets Noah makes me sad. The dude is so damn lovable (except to 1% scumbags).

so far the notion that we don't have enough 3 pt shooting to run an offense like this is looking silly. hope that continues.

Nets had zero 3 pointers made correct? That can't happen all too often, can it?

Strange but true fact: The Bulls have not started a season 3-0 since 1996 and have only done this twice since 1987 (in 1995 and 1996)

Was watching the Nets broadcast last night (because Eagle and Fratello are terrific) and they mentioned it was the first time that happened to the Nets since 2009.

Well let's not gather round the campfire naked just yet. Pistons are 2-0 and Drummond is going to be hard to handle. Good chance of going 5-0 if we get that one, however.

How about we just never do that? Yeah, that sounds like a solid plan.

I was going to google it to see if this is an expression somewhere but probably not a safe for work search.

It has a meaning similar to "driving around with a bucket of thick onion gravy".
