You obviously aren't talking about Karl Malone so I assume you mean Brendan Malone.
in terms of your first question, just look at bball blogs/columns etc. ESPN has a computer which predicts team records strictly based on analytics. I mentioned on a knicks blog that bargnani could be a valuable member of a triangle offense due to his midrange game and immediately the first response was, "he sucks as a stretch 4 and if you are a 7 footer and can't shoot threes, you have no place in the league" One of the local papers mentioned that Shane Larkin's 3rd...
You like that shit, don't youI'm going to say that San Antonio's success over the last 15 years has more to do with Tim Duncan than probably anyone else.
One of the biggest issues I have with advanced stats and the people that use them (and not all of them fall into this category) is that they either don't know the game that well or don't watch a lot of it but simply look at stats and determine whether player A is this or that. A basketball team is a very complex ecosystem, where the action of each player effects his teammates performance moreso than any other team sport. Nothing happens in a vacuum and to simply state...
Well it's not whether the triangle works or not, it definitely works, it's how well the Knicks team take to the implementation of it. The pieces are there in terms of players but it's a system that requires all 5 players thinking 1-2 plays ahead and that takes a lot of time/experience to master and run it cohesively. There will be some awful games but if the players put the time in, it's a beautiful thing to watch
the two prior possessions, they came up empty, I think two shot clock violations (although one possession feature Prigioni directly under the basket, wide open, and he kicks the ball out). Running the triangle, or any system, does not mean that you adhere to it for every single play. How many end of game contested jumpers did Jordan take in the Triangle? The Triangle is meant to facilitate everyone on the floor, the Knicks had more assists yesterday then in any game...
oh, I get it. Its a Melo isolation (he did that maybe 2-3 times all game) which goes against the triangle system that the Knicks are supposedly running. Funny stuff. The Melo shot was a baseline jumper from about 12-14 feet, not sure how that is a bad shot, the Cavs were all hanging around the paint in case he drove. Obviously a wide open shot would be better.
I don't understand how with the vast shift to natural/organic things, figging has not had a big revival among the current generation
the dodge hellcat that I hope to get my hands on will have something to say about that.
All game long Barkley was creaming over LeBron and the Cavs. How they are going to win 60 games and are the favorite to win it all. Everytime Cleveland missed, it was because they were pressing, were too excited, new coach/new gameplan etc.( but he did not extend the same courtesy to the Knicks who have a new coach/system and team) Not once did he give credit to the Knicks. Not once did he mention the team ball (31 assists) the Knicks were playing or how good Fisher's...
