    Curry's an assassin, no doubt, but those turnover numbers are scary. 4.4 per game...sheesh...

    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 That policy is as outdated as the Knicks' roster.

    Who is outdated besides Stat?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.

    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.

    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.
