His TO numbers are idd high, they are of little concern tbh he makes up for them in other ways. Steve Nash also had many seasons with 3+ to.

Curry's turnover rate looks much better when you look at his assist-TO ratio, and the number of points he accounts for (his scoring + assists). he makes far more good decisions than bad ones with the ball, and with opposing teams trapping him all the time.

Is it just me or is the NBA more open to saying their "sorries" about missed calls? First the techs on Blake that got hims tossed against the Dubs, then the Love foul that wasn't called in the finals second and today the Rivers 3, that Monta clearly fouled him on, that could have tied the game. I don't remember the league admitting such mistakes before.

Nice ticket lady at @TheGarden informed me that MSG won't scan tickets from a phone. That policy is as outdated as the Knicks' roster.

 

Who is outdated besides Stat? Do people forget that Melo is only 29?

Kenyon Martin is 36 and so is Pablo Prigioni. Still, it isn't as bad as last season when they had Marcus Camby and Rasheed Wallace on the roster.

Also had Jason Kidd at 39.

Bynums still dreaming. lol8[1].gif

Sources told ESPN.com on Sunday that the Los Angeles Clippers, long presumed to be one of Bynum's primary suitors, are leaning against the prospect of signing the enigmatic former Los Angeles Laker.

ESPN.com reported Thursday that the Brooklyn Nets (after losing Brook Lopez) and Atlanta Hawks (after losing Al Horford) were likewise planning to pass on the idea despite their clear need at center, with sources subsequently adding that the Oklahoma City Thunder are not preparing a bid on Bynum in the wake of the recent trade that shed the contract of Ryan Gomes to take the Thunder nearly $2.3 million away from the luxury-tax threshold.

Teams with a known interest, sources said, include Dallas and New York, but both of those suitors, like the Clippers, are restricted to offering a minimum salary. Bynum, meanwhile, is said to be looking for an offer above the league minimum to recoup more of the $6 million he lost when Chicago waived Bynum immediately Tuesday after acquiring him in a trade for Luol Deng.

Right but the oldest starter if the team were healthy is Chandler at 31. I like Nate Silver but he's definitely a year late with that dig.

What Gary Payton dislike about todays NBA:

Quote:
Basically everything. It's no defense, it's just run and gun. To me, there's only three point guards in the NBA that impress me; I got Chris Paul, Rondo, and another kid that I like a lot and I forgot his name right now. Oh, and Tony Parker. That's only three NBA players in there.

There's too much touch fouls. Every time you touch and they stay on the free throw line. That's no way to watch basketball. When we were playing, it was rough and tough. Even superstars like me fouled out a lot. That's because they let people play, and if you do something then you call it. But nowadays it's not like that and this is the era.

This is what kids want to see. You see these Playstations, they scoring 50 and 60 with one player, that's what they want to see on TV and I don't go with that. My era, give me one-on-one with somebody and stop him and right now you can't do that with a player because if you touch him he's going to the foul line and you're fouling out. Let him be rough. If he got an opportunity to go at you in the offensive end, let me go at him on the defensive end and rough him up. So that's the way I like basketball and I don't think it's like that.

After watching that '84 Lakers Celtics series, I kind of agree. There were so many more continuous plays with fewer stoppages. If there was a foul you knew it.

Also, the modern NBA is 3 steps. You're desensitized to it. Watch one of those games, you'll be like 'what, a travel??' but it is... we just don't notice it anymore. Its a joke really. Even scrubs that used to get called for a travel get 3 steps now.

He should have mentioned the Griffin/DeAndre Jordan posterization mentality. And whenever LeBron goes full on linebacker.
