Re: NBA Season Thread 2016-2017

Boogie seems to be at the other end. Most fouled high usage player relative to offensive load. Harden also really high, which is part of what makes him so insanely good on offense - he's a ruthless gunner and 3pt hoister but also gets fouled at elite rates.

Re: NBA Season Thread 2016-2017

So is it just me, or do the Jazz sneakily and quietly have one of the better backcourts in the NBA?

Hill/Hood/Hayward at the 1-3 is high quality, but kind of under the radar. Triple H gonna be really, really solid though. No real STAR POWER but each guy is just a good player who is both good individually and also plays well in a system and can make other players better.

Did you make Triple H up? That's kind of awesome.

Re: NBA Season Thread 2016-2017

I like the Jazz as much as the next guy but you gotta question their GM's decision making when he decided to trade for Boris Diaw. Not sure that is the veteran leadership and mentorship that the young guys need.

Re: NBA Season Thread 2016-2017

Anyone with Fox Sports Tennessee as part of their cable and want to share their log-in so I can watch the Grizz pregame/postgame on FoxSportsGo?

Want more than just the games on League Pass.

At least they deserved to lose the game last night. Totally concede that and am fine with it.

When they are face ****ing the league again I'm sure Adam silver will try and inject parody and competitive balance (he publicly stated he felt that is best for the league), by any means necessary, like last year's finals.

It's a new season, move the **** on.

The Warriors lost the Finals up 3-1 and lost game 7 at HOME.

Re: NBA Season Thread 2016-2017

lebron looked great athletically game 1 - obv being older he's expected to drop off slightly but the amount of shooting they have makes it much easier for him. love actually didn't look too pathetic today either which helps

staps looks really good - the 3s he hit today are basically unguardable looks.

woyas look pretty bad when they don't hit 3s like today, but that isn't going to be a trend obv. oboards and lack of rim protection is likely to be an ongoing weakness if they aren't dialled in. should be fixable if they get the wings helping a bit more, esp durant

Think that says more of the backcourts in the NBA than it does about the Jazz. I've made my thoughts on Hill known and won't re-hash those but he's really not that good and not a difference maker at all.

I did like what little I saw of Exum last night and would like to see him take a step forward this year into a solid player.

The problem with the Jazz is their go to player in crunch time and only real scorer is 49 year old Joe Johnson. They'll win some games and be in the mix but 48 wins is laughable. If the game is close under 6 minutes they're -EV more times than not
