    LB was brought in to speed up the offense and get out and run more. Then Saunders was brought in to systematize the offense. The Curry was brought in to play the hot hand. Then Q was brought in to run and gun.

    Heaven forbid we ever get a real grind it out coach. We'll be scoring 55 pts a game.

    This is officially our slowest year.

    Year: Pace (Rank)
    2001: 94.7 (1/29) The George Irvine Speedtrain
    2002: 90.0 (20/29) The Rick Carlisle Rickshaw
    2003: 86.8 (29/29)
    2004: 87.9 (24/29) The LB bathroom stall offense
    2005: 87.2 (30/30)
    2006: 86.8 (29/30) The Flip Saunders make shots scheme
    2007: 87.3 (30/30)
    2008: 87.3 (30/30) The Michael Curry we bad experiment
    2009: 86.7 (29/30) The John Kuester sludge factory


    Our worst offenses in all of these years were the speedtrain and the sludge factory. I think making shots a higher percentage of the time might be a better strategy than missing them at a faster rate. But Flip tried that and it only worked until late May. Something about the warm weather must expand the ball and make it harder to go in.

    Flip's offense was boring and stagnant. You can play at a slow pace, ala LB, if you have some different wrinkles and looks, if you rotate through the bench.

    But Flip tightened everything up. The sets, the bench. Do you guys remember that Rip wasn't scoring, so Flip had to put two chest into his sets (he didnt have a set like that) just to get Rip off?

    Rip is really one dimensional and needs too much of the shot clock to be effective. I thought it was Billups, but he has proven in Denver that with talent that runs, he can run too. While I don't miss his intellectual touch, I do miss his shooting and postups.

    Average number of offensive possessions in a game for the team.

    So, if you play in the Eastern Conference, your pace will be dragged down a bit because you'll be avoiding a lot of games against the running teams. If you play good defense, the pace will slow down because you will force your opponents to use up more time on their possessions while they look for shots. And of course, if your PG walks it up the court (with that little jog past half court to avoid the 8 second violation), that will also slow down your pace.

    And what was really funny was the reaction of both of them after that play.

    Stuckey yelling to JJ to catch the oop and then looking at JJ like he screwed up and oop.

    Then JJ looking back at him like Mutha______ R-U-CRAZEE!!!!

    The pass hit the front of the rim, it was the worse lob in the history of lob passes, and Stuckey blamed JJ, N-Credible.

    It doesn't speak well for Stuckey's shot when Jerebko thought that is what that piece of crap was.

    I'm just cracking up over here reading this from you two, and I didn't even see the game. I have some great visuals. Any clips floating around the internet of this lob?

    We're probably exaddurating a bit. It's not youtube worthy.

    It was just sort of a last second flick (like a Stuckey J, but he didn't leave his feet and there was a quick recoil of the shooting arm). Jerebko watched him throw the "pass" and starting boxing his man out and waiting for the rebound like he thought it was a shot. The ball ticked the rim and missed Jerebko's head by a few inches while he was still gaining perfect position.

    Not exactly the Trammell Whitaker double play combo.
