Re: NBA ‘20-‘21 Offseason

Plays at the time rim are objectively way more exciting that a spot up 3. Well...no. Agree to disagree? Dunks and blocks are awesome. Those at the rim plays are frequently two athletic monsters going directly head to head. That's the best play in basketball. https://assets.sbnation.com/assets/61418...

Re: NBA ‘20-‘21 Offseason

Could you also be persuaded to raise the height of the rim? I've never heard of an argument for that. I suppose I could be persuaded, but I can't imagine what that argument could be. That's my point; making something harder simply because too many of the players are good at it seems pretty flimsy. ...

Re: NBA ‘20-‘21 Offseason

Is there really that much they can do about competitive balance? The best players are worth so much more in basketball than in other sports so that if there’s a dominant team/player, that team is always going to be good. The Spurs and Lakers won the West all but one year from 1999-2010 and won 9 of...

Jugs machine is probably most accurate, no?

Re: NBA ‘20-‘21 Offseason

Being really horsefeathering good at shooting is, personally, something that'll never bug me about pro basketball. I don't think it compares to something like defensive shifting in baseball at all. I think its more comparable to the launch angle, high k/low contact changes. People love dongs, peopl...

Foles, Trubisky, Bray, a jugs machine... How much does it really matter? Well, bad OL so in theory you want the most mobile guy playing. So,that would make the preferred order: Trubisky Bray Jugs Machine Foles I'm not convinced Trubisky's mobility even matters that much since he's typically been a ...

Re: NBA ‘20-‘21 Offseason

Part of me is really glad this style of basketball started when it did so we didn't miss out the Jordan era. Can't imagine he'd be the GOAT without the midrange game, even though I'm sure he would have adapted and became one of the best shooters. But on a personal level, if this style of basketball...

Re: NBA ‘20-‘21 Offseason

Yeah, the NBA is pretty awesome these days. I really don't care at all what the Bulls do at this point. There's part of the NBAs that are great, the little I've watched the past 7 years. But I'll probably still complain about the 3 point fest it's become. I'd love for the league to widen the court ...

Wild the NBA is stepping in on this for a star player to get like the 60th best player in the league to join him. Lebron and others have been doing similar horsefeathers to get far bigger and impactful players for years. Almost like the league wants Giannis out of Milwaukee. I meaaannnn, that would...

I understand the whole "playing along with the perception that he has power is only giving him more power" idea and I'm mostly not doom-bonering. But to the question of "what should people be doing," I'd like a little more planning on what *would* be done if he somehow succeeded...

Athletic's analysis of the pick: Vecenie’s scouting report: Williams has risen in the minds of teams throughout the draft process. He ticks the boxes of being a potential two-way forward in an NBA that continues to crave them. As long as Williams knocks down 3s at a 35 to 37 percent level off the c...

Re: Bulls offseason discussion

I think the main issue for fans with Williams is he was a late riser. All through the summer and stuff I'm not sure he was even being mocked as a late lotto pick. But it's also been 7-8 months since these guys played meaningful basketball. Putting aside that it's supposed to be a weak draft, I think...
