Knight was a very poor defender in 2011-2012. According to Synergy Sports, Knight gave up .93 points per possession, good for 370th in the league. His greatest defensive weakness is isolation plays, where he gave up .99 points per possession, good for 295th in the league.http://www.pistonpowered.com/2012/12...s-complicated/What is less explainable, though, is Knight’s dropoff in defense. Knight’s defensive rating was 109 as a rookie and it’s slightly worse at 110 this season. He’s getting significantly fewer steals too (.7 per 36 minutes last season, .4 this season; 1.2 percent steal percentage last season, .7 percent this season), a disappointment considering his quickness and long arms, which should theoretically help him get into passing lanes.
I guess I wasn't wrong after all

Not doing this again..
Luigi:The hero we deserve
Not baiting....All I'm a say is this. Everyone in this forum watched the game last nite. The fact u sit up blamming stuckey & knight. When teague didn't score 1point against knight, All his points was on bynum. Bynum stayed in the game until the hawks cut the lead down to 1 pt. Then frank put knight & stuckey in again. Do u even watch the games on tv?? Because u are exaggerating alot homie & The hawks came back because are team scored 11 points the entire 4th qtr, everybody went cold but daye.Originally Posted by shyfly24:24974035
Or how about Knight missing key shots in the 4th and making careless turnovers ... ya that had nothing to do w/ the hawks come back.
This was our theme this whole season! Teams would come back in the 2nd half against us. And stuckey is a no show. When he wasnt here our teams were winning easily.
And you said let knight play w/ the 2nd unit ... well he was in w/ bynum, daye, cv and drummond. And what does he do? Passed to them while they were being gaurded Really?
Bynum found them for open looks all the time. We were winning just fine w/ the lineup of bynum, singler, daye, cv and drummond
That statement sums up everything i've been saying. Oh but no, he is the next ben wallace cause he made teague miss a shotWhat is less explainable, though, is Knight’s dropoff in defense. Knight’s defensive rating was 109 as a rookie and it’s slightly worse at 110 this season. He’s getting significantly fewer steals too (.7 per 36 minutes last season, .4 this season; 1.2 percent steal percentage last season, .7 percent this season), a disappointment considering his quickness and long arms, which should theoretically help him get into passing lanes.

And Lionsfan, I just noticed that All of Phenoms post last night were ONLY about me. He provided nothing about the game. Is that not baiting? I'm reporting it. I dunno how else to do it
First Gram vs Mike
Now Shyfly vs everyone else
I really don't get it... Everyone has different opinions(and have a right to feel that way), I kinda get the tension because it seems like the forum is divided on Knight(majority still pro-knight) and I just don't know about the whole Stuckey thing, seems like the opinion on this forum about this guy changes every other game.
Imagine if we would had beaten the hawks in that overtime loss, we would of had an 7-0 winning streak, but 4-0 I'm surprised. Heck I thought they would of never of won this many in a row with Frank coaching. These bobcats are just the kind of team that could end our winning streak, we can't have sessions and gordon give them life, but what do I know.
Can we please stop arguing in every single thread?
This game thread is Pisrons vs Lolcats. Lets keep it on topic for one friggin thread.
Everyone got that out of their system? Good. Any more posts that aren't related to the game thread from here on out will be deleted.
Stats to come....eventually
