Re: NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs: Cavaliers vs Celtics

Did I just read that Ray Allen is Top 50 EVER? Really?

Re: NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs: Cavaliers vs Celtics

Varejao:

Varejao's flopping gets everyone talking, but the rest of his defense is the real story. He's an elite defender who deserved All-Defense honors, as he can guard 4s on the perimeter or defend the post with equal effectiveness. He defends pick-and-rolls, he gets back quickly in transition, and he hustles like crazy to get loose balls. He's not a leaper, but at 6-foot-11 and 260 pounds he possesses unusual mobility for a player of his size.

Offensively, Varejao can handle the ball fairly well for his size but is a poor shooter, with a line-drive, below-the-chin, elbow-out release that will never appear in a textbook. He runs the floor well and scraps his way to a lot of second shots, plus he's great at moving without the ball, particularly as the roll man in screen-and-rolls. For him to score on his own is quite difficult, however, and opponents routinely dare him to fire away from the perimeter. Too often, he takes the bait.

Allen:

With textbook form and uncanny accuracy, Allen resides among the best shooters in the history of the league. He's deadly in catch-and-shoot situations, particularly from the corners, and fouling him is futile since he rarely misses.

Although his age is creeping up, Allen retains the ability to create shots. He's comfortable shooting off pin-downs after running his man off a screen, but he also fires quickly off the dribble -- especially going to his left. Allen handles the ball like a point guard and can initiate offense and pass better than many players at his position. While he lacks blazing speed, he can get a step on opponents because they have to guard him so closely.

Allen has put much more effort into his defense since joining the Celtics but can hardly be called an elite defender. He's a low-mistake player who doesn't foul much and competes, but he's small for a shooting guard and doesn't display outstanding lateral quickness.

Take your pick.

The Pickup games at my YMCA are more well reffed and we call fouls ourselves.
