haha this is so wrong it's so funny to me. bruh you're up 9 points, who cares if they get a dunk. then you're only up 7 w/ 40 secs left w/ the ball.only way you can lose up 9 w/ 40 secs left is if you fuck a ton of shit up and your opponent has a lot of high-variance shit go his way. so the underdog needs to enact as many david strategies as possible. so if cleveland has the choice btwn a guaranteed 2 pts or a 3 pta by a 33% shooter they would be idiotic not to take the 3...
yes, when you are up 9 pts w/ 40 secs left in the game you should definitely give up a corner 3 instead of a 2 pt dunk.what didnt neo spell this the exact same way you did? am i missing something?? is this performance art???
biedrins? is he still in the league? two cool items: 1) ind mentioned it before, but zach lowe's podcast w/ jj redick is really really great. redick is thoughtful and super honest about everything, like how every ref hates his team, they complain all the time, MVP talk, etc. he also apparently read business insider nonstop on team flights. made me proud to go to school w/ him, although he was a raging db while he was there 2) jeremy lin! god he can't get out of his own...
i could be wrong but i'm pretty sure portland is guaranteed to get the 4-spot, but they don't actually get home court against #5. and to answer your question, i think the clips can only pass the blazers by leapfrogging them to #3. so houston would have to drop down
This is a good point. My whole thing was hat I didn't realize just how little a dent a mini max contract given this summer will make for a teams cap sheet in the future until I actually sat down and looked at the #s.Like, 3 mths ago I knew draymond was super valuable, but a $15m/yr contract seemed like a stretch to me. But when you look at it, it's really not a big deal at all; it can't hamstring your cap in the slightest.
That's true I don't think it's necessarily an advantage as much as it is a strategy I think most teams should follow. Not a secret to teams by any means. But imo it's a mistake for most teams to hold onto the cap room for the fools gold promise of signing 2 superstars in the next summer. Try to sign who you want, and don't worry about going 20% over. Idfnl, I'd love to hear what's fuzzy about my math. Unless this is one of your posts where you say someone is wrong and...
i would love to hear any legit counter-arguments to just not worrying about overpaying your targets by $3-5M/yr or so, if there are any. in other news, kd is getting surgery on that foot AGAIN. it's bone graft surgery, apparently. as trey kerby pointed out, now the thunder have claimed that two players (russ and kd) were healing/healed perfectly before they had season-ending surgery. it's gotten to the point where i'm really scared about the rest of durant's career. it...
@Neo_Version 7 lolol can you imagine how pissed love would be. he joins the lakers as the lone star, then two superstars come in who pass less than the current cavs do 😭😂😭it's tied to % of the cap in the 1st year, but then there are set incremental yearly increases. so yep. SIGN ALL THE PLAYERSwhere's this portland talk? feel like i would have read something about it, considering how much shit was raised over him saying he and bron weren't best friends
i've been thinking about the salary cap increase. estimates say the cap's gonna rise from 67 next year to ~90 the year after that. then 2017-18 is gonna be ~105, before it settles at around $100M. w/ those #s, it makes total sense to just overpay for any player who you really want this offseason. let's say you love draymond green but don't think he's worth the max, only $13M/yr. who cares! give him the max! that's 25% of the cap, and he'll start 2015 making $16.75M. One...
don't think kobe would be good at the analytic side starting off, but he's super smart and he's very insightful and honest about a lot of things. i don't think he'd be sociopathic like mj. he comes off as very interesting in basically every interview he does nowadays.
