This is just a ploy to boost Booker's on/off defensive stats
So tired of ring chasers
isn't he basically a negative for any team at this point
He’ll be really good for that locker room. At some point Booker is going to become frustrated with the consistent losing and having a veteran voice like Jamal in his ear when that happens will be good for Phoenix.
that Boston crowd is going to be rough for him especially opening night
OPENING NIGHTS TOMORROW BOYS OMG
I'm honestly not on board with this, I think Markelle off the bench is a much more solid option, and would give him many more opportunities to run an offense, but I'm not a coach so idk
He'll only be on for like 5 minutes before subbing for JJ
Makes sense. When I look at Josh hart and thhink of his NBA comparisons, the first guy that comes to mind is Joel Embiid.
“I took a month. Took another month. The desire to prepare just didn’t come,” he said. “When that didn’t come, I knew it was time.”
Makes sense, he's been playing in the NBA for like 15 seasons, that grind gets to you I'd imagine
What about having his ankles literally broken by CP3?
Lol.i get that. It still sounds funny
"So we'd better win....Andrew"
“I’m not gonna mention any names (as he mouthed the names KAT and Wiggs). I just need EVERYONE to give 100% effort in winning”
Holy crap their games are going to be so entertaining
For fans of 29 teams...
49% chance for the Warriors to win the title may be the mathematically correct answer, but it doesn’t feel right.
54 wins for the Celtics? Dunno, that seems kinda low...
Edit: damn, downvoted for saying the celtics shouldn't have less wins than last year.
Should be 51% to be honest.
Projected playoff seeds:
(9&10: Trailblazers and Spurs)
(9&10: Hornets and Nets)
Edit: Boogie vs AD, hmmm
Surprised aminu didn't fly in for it
Hell yeah that’s dope
One (more?) of his old tweets was anti-gay
I don't this means they're gay necessarily
Nice OC! Did you use gganimate for the animation?
Did you filter the data in any way or just include every player on a roster? Might be interesting to look at players with x minutes per game and up (or maybe a per 36 minutes), as now it looks like the majority of players still attempt 0 threes per game, when I feel like that is not the case.
That shift post mid 2010s in the 0 threes chart is pretty stark. Also, it needs to be argued that this whole analytical shift really didnt start till the mid 2010s , we've been seeing a gradual shift throughout the last 30 years... Awesome content OP!
Jeff Van Gundy on 1-16 Playoff Format requiring players to fly cross-country: "Oh oh, poor guys! The Shrimp Cocktails may not be quite as chilled by landing time, how devastating."
From his recent Lowe Post interview
Personally I kind of get the travel issue, since I have never responded well to flying and it always takes something out of me. But then I travel coach and I have to wait hours at the airport in and out, while these guys have chartered flights and VIP lounge waiting for the plane. At some point you gotta think needing to travel 2 more hours in the air can't possibly screw over their entire play right?
wouldn’t be surprised if this is only one sentence from a 45 minute long rant in the middle of a game
lol this shit cracks me up.
The real argument against 1-16 seeding is tradition. And you know any disparity would work itself out pretty much the year after they finally made a playoff format change, and everybody would then be crying about the lost rivalries.
That said, Raptors landing the Lakers for the next four years in the first round would be worth it for the lolz.
I know JVG is very popular here on /sub/nba, and I will admit I have really appreciated how he has fearlessly spoken up about occasional NBA related bullshit in the past, but sometimes he just needs to realize he doesn’t have to have an extreme opinion on every little thing.
In my opinion, JVG can sometimes be irritating as an interviewee because he’s unable to be indifferent or go middle of the road on anything. During interviews (like this one he did on The Lowe Post) he will backtrack and change his original opinions on certain things because his initial reaction was based solely off of emotion and impulsivity. He is an old school type of personality and is often rooted in toughness and tradition when it comes to his takes on most subjects. I was not surprised one bit when I heard him drop this line.
Damn I'm surprised that AD is already so high ranking since he hasn't won a chip (or even come close) and has only been in the league for 6 years.
Yo Robert Horry suck a dick
I've decided to display a Conf. Title only for years where players lost the title in the finals but you get points for both the Championship AND the Conference Championship.
It's definitely noticeable to see him ahead of the likes of James Worthy & Clyde Drexler before the age of 25.
Jimmy’s never being traded
Yeah he’s not getting traded is he
I'll get around to trading you, keep playing nerd
*50 years later
Old ass Jimmy: "You guys still looking for a trade right?"
Bionic Thibs: "Still waiting on Philly to give the ok on Simmons"
