Yep Steph was off. I guess he has the same cold everyone else in the Bay Area seems to have right now. Amazingly close game considering how poorly the Warriors shot. D Lee was the exception, he kept them in the game the second half. This should be a good character building game and yet another instance of how much the Warriors need Bogut to excel. Not trying to take anything away from the Bulls. I don't think the Bulls played their best ball either - Rosè turned it...
Check out nbawowy.com. With the starting 5 on the court, they beat opponents 1.156 to 0.971 per possession. When CP3, Griffin and Deandre sit at the same time, they score more (1.375) but give up way more (1.4). Seems like the big problem with the bench is defense. Well and how painful they are to watch. I haven't seen the clippers play much this year but the bench is hard to watch, reminds me of the Warriors bench last year.
The clips perform as a team much better on defense with Deandre on the floor - they give up 1.004 points per possession with him, 1.21 without him. They rebound better with him (50.7% vs 44.7%) as well. Having him in there hurts offense a bit (Clips score 1.13 with him, 1.18 without him), but the difference in defense is staggering. I should note that this analysis doesn't take into account player rotation, etc. it's just the difference between Clippers with Deandre on...
People in the US see specialists when they have a sore throat and we wonder why healthcare is so expensive in this country. Get some sucrets and call it a day.
I didn't realize you were looking at the Club model which is more or less a diffusion line for Nomos - designed to get people into the brand at a more attractive pricepoint. I'm simultaneously impressed they can sell a Club for $1550 and amazed anyone pays $3500 for the dunkel given the pricing of the other Nomos lines. I haven't tried any Clubs on so my opinions are based on pictures. I would be a lot more interested in the base Club if it had the option of a sapphire...
I think it would be apparent in pictures, but maybe in the metal people are underwhelmed by the lack of intricate bezels, bevelling and brushed surfaces. Those are some of the things I like most about my Nomos. I would be interested to see what a Nomos with more mainstream lugs would look like. People tend to get really emotional and touchy feely when talking about watches even when trying to intellectualize it. I would think that the things that are underwhelming...
I like that Nomos isn't trying to be all things to all people. That said, I would love to see them add a chrono at some point and ironically I would also like to see them make some watches without sub seconds. After 2 weeks with my Tangomat, I'm still mesmerized every time I watch and hear the rotor do it's thing and, although that doesn't seem to be an important criteria for many, I'm thrilled that its timekeeping is impeccable.
I'm thinking of getting a hesalite speedy (new model that retails for $5250 I think with the stupid box and accesories) so this is a timely conversation. It would be the third and probably final near-term purchase and I have a pretty good opportunity to get a new one for around $2900 or so all in. Is that considered a good deal or are you guys saying used speedys can be had for a song?
One advantage to the blue Weltzeit is it has the new Nomos swing system which functionally isn't any different but is "better" in that it's more fully in house since the pallet, escape wheel, main spring, etc. are made by Nomos. Eventually all Nomos' will have these parts, but for now just a few watches have it including the Weltzeit. I looked at the Weltzeit and like the moving disc, but in the end decided I preferred the treatment in the Tangomat GMT which was less in...
Is this 75% off business at all stores or just in DC?
