    any good shot could be poison but you make them shoot from deep, best odds.

    Kudos to SVG for giving Stanley's minutes to Bullock who responded great.

    Reggie played great, but there were 3 possessions straight in crunch time which resulted in turnovers because Reggie decided that he was gonna be the man. He is a terrific finisher in crunch time, but he needs to find the open man when the entire defense keys on him. If LeBron can do it, so can Reggie. The good thing is, last few games he has shown some marginal improvement on defense.

    Again, no Drummond in crunch time. This is a serious issue. I love Baynes, I think he's a great backup center. But if you can't have your best player on the floor when it matters the most, then he's not your best player. Are we prepared to give Drummond the max when he's so flawed? How different is a Dre who can't hit free throws from a Moose who can't his a jumper?

    good argument til you brought Moose in
    Moose wouldn't protect the rim or rebound anywhere near what Dre does
    or handle oops for that matter

    Also a lot of cheap layups that Dre could have blocked. Like that one last night that only took Orlando 1.2 secs to score.

    I Just hope it does not effect this summer. I mean, who cares about Baynes. ya Baynes is happy but who in the frick cares. You can sign 2-3 Baynes's every summer if you have the cap.

    Dre is the Franchise player and needs to be in there at the end.

    Good PFs and Cs get 2 fouls on Dre in the first Q
    whilst he tries to protect the rim

    You have a filthy mind. I like it. :eyebrows:

    I don't think we're a lottery team if Dre leaves. It is unhealthy to hold your franchise hostage to a player when that player is the worst FT shooter in NBA history.

    Yeah, did you see SVG chuckling to himself as he greedily rubbed his stubby hands together? A wicked plan finally coming together!

    About time that a shorter fat man screwed over the big dumb jock! High school revenge writ large.

    As the world's foremost expert on Dre's box scores, he has only been blocking shots the last 2 weeks. Most of his career, he doesn't even bother.

    Baynes is the superior shotblocker by far.

    Tobias Harris is a decent shot swatter for a swing forward.
    Dre seems to have stepped his block-game up since Tobias arrived.
    Anyone got any analysis on why this might be the case?

    ***NOT you lee!***
    (I'm sure 356 will claim that Dre is now free to block shots now that he doesn't have to check Illy's man.)

    Is that a Joke or are we slipping into some kind of Leeish alternate dimension?

    Let's say I agree with you and Dre blocks the layup. He grabs the rebound, Orlando fouls him, Dre misses both free throws, and Orlando gets the ball right back.

    I was mocking the comment about SVG. I assume you were talking about the SVG stuff.

    I was quite serious about Baynes as a shotblocker. Per 36, their numbers are identical (1.5 blocks per 36)

    I'm scandalized!

    Maybe it's a Japan thing.

    From what I've been told Japan is polite/proper on the surface and twisted/perverted below the surface.
    ...Do you get that impression?
    (A friend of mine lived in Kobe and Osaka for three years.)

    Japan is on my bucket list of travel destinations.
    I want to shred (snowboard) the DEEP blower pow of Hokkaido!

    I was just thinking about this the other day. First of all, of course we're generalizing here. My initial reaction would be yes, there is some weird stuff going on over here if you know where to look. But honestly I think it's not that extreme compared to the weird stuff in our own country. Just different. And probably a lot more mild, to be honest. They probably look at all the sexual crime rates and everything going on the US and think that we are the twisted/perverted ones.
