Nice thread. I didn't realize Lamar Odom dominated the Jazz that much....

Chronz
05-08-2009, 05:33 PM
Can you please take Derrick Rose off the list, he had a good run for a ROOK, not to be compared with the established vets. Just about every PG in the playoffs outplayed him, they just didnt get the pub because their games werent as intense. Some people have actually said Pierce is having himself a good playoff run.

On a similar level Aaron Brooks is having himself a more impressive playoff run. Hes playing well above what hes shown in the regular season but I chop that up to experience.

Kobes game 2 was much better than his game 1 so Id take game 1 off as well.

Chronz
05-08-2009, 05:39 PM
To me the best individuals these playoffs thus far have been (in no order):
BronBron, Kobe, Dirk, Wade (though I was expecting way more), Roy, Billups, Melo, Yao and Dwight.

The role players whove stepped up the most:
Odom, House, Klieza/JR Smith sure theres more but thats all I got

Lebron is doing great, but he hasn't really been challenged yet.

Melo as been clutch as hell in the 4th every time the nuggets are down, but Chauncey hitting 8 3's? That's crazy.


I think Chauncey's Game 1 was the best.

Kabowdos
05-08-2009, 05:56 PM
Kobe

He has actually played good teams and good defenders.

LeBron hasn't played a good team yet. The East is very weak compared to the West.

Round 1- Billiups 8-9 from 3 performance, with 36 points and 8 assists.

Round 2- Kobe's 40, or House's 31 in 28 minutes.

Game 3's from tonight have been added. I included the Magic's big 3, because all were pivotal in the win, even if none had like super great statistical nights. And I'm on the fence with Lamar's game, it was pretty decent, but not sure if it goes on the board.

If you mean in the second round, no. He had 15 points, 6 boards, 5 assists. Not a bad game, but on 7-17 shooting and getting beat by 21, it doesnt warrant a mention.

How can you leave out Rondo? 3 triple doubles isn't enough? Better than Roy and Wade IMO

Would it make you feel any better if I told you he was next on the list, but definitely not better than either Roy or Wade this post season, though in a sense of who rose their game more I could see why you would think that, overall however no way. Both players just mean much more to their teams, without Roy the Blazers dont win a game, without Wade, the Heat lose badly in every game. Rondo has the benefit of being young and playing 43 Minutes a night, in that respect hes played at a star level, just those guys get more done in less time.

OPP FG% is the best stat to show how good your team defense is which is why it's no shock to see that Boston and the Cavs are the best defensive teams in the league. Utah was a team called out for it's softness all year on D. Jerry Sloan himself said his own team wasn't "nasty".

Odom, House, Klieza/JR Smith sure theres more but thats all I got

Game 2 was a better performance because he was clutch.

I disagree, his game 1 performance was better, on the individual level anyway. He was 20-30, and 49 points, thats insane, plus he had 6 boards, 8 assists, 2 steals and 3 blocks with only 2 TO's.

35 ain't bad, and at over 50% shooting, but only 4 boards and 5 assists, but 6 TO's, that hurt. I mean it was still a great game for him, especially with the game winner, but if he misses that shot, game 2 becomes quite forgetable for LeBron.

Chronz
05-23-2009, 02:15 PM
Statistically its hard to match your career high PT total, but at some point taking so many shots begins to hurt your team. It leaves them with too little opportunities to get going offensively. Truth be told, Bron started that game trying to get his teammates involved, but then he tried to get himself going and the stagnant ball movement hurt everyone else. Bron not going full bore also payed off down the stretch, instead of cramping up on the final possession, Bron was able to hit an incredible shot to close out the game.

Overall Id say G1 was superior because he was godly and its not like he hogged the ball for no reason, had he stayed the course there was no way Cleveland was going to manufacture enough points to win, he had to try and take over. But G.2 was just as awesome, he didnt take as many shots but he did make alot of overaggressive drives that led to bad shots or turnovers. Had he limited those mistakes and been more efficient I wouldve liked G.2 better, hell had he played smarter it wouldnt have taken a last second shot to win. But both are great performances in what is becoming a disturbing trend. The Cavs really are about as much of a 1 man show as it can get at this stage.

Has ANY player ever carried this kind of talent base, this far into the playoffs, playing the way Bron has.

LeBron's game 3 in the ECF was weird. yes he scored 41 points had 7 boards and 9 assists and didn't turn the ball over much (only 2 TO's in 42 minutes) but 11-28 is pretty bad, and that includes 1-8 from 3. he only made 2 jumpshots all game. He was 18-24 from the line, but i believe he was 5-10 from the line in the 4th quarter. It's weird to say, but it was a pedestrian 41 from LeBron. I'm not trying to discredit him, but from what he's shown us so far this playoffs, it was a subpar game.

Part of it is, the rest of the team needs to pick it up. Consider this.

LeBron had 41 points, on 28 shots, 24 FT attempts and had 9 assists.

The cavs outside of LeBron had 48 points on 50 shots, 11 ft attempts and 8 assists.

That's just insane. One of the things that the Cavs can't afford to do is just stand around and watch LeBron play. They played good offense all year, but now that they're being tested, they're going back to that same old offense that got the swept by the spurs, giving it to lebron, having him do it all and hoping it's enough. It's not enough, and they need to figure it out.

Can you please take Derrick Rose off the list, he had a good run for a ROOK, not to be compared with the established vets. Just about every PG in the playoffs outplayed him, they just didnt get the pub because their games werent as intense. Some people have actually said Pierce is having himself a good playoff run.

On a similar level Aaron Brooks is having himself a more impressive playoff run. Hes playing well above what hes shown in the regular season but I chop that up to experience.

Kobes game 2 was much better than his game 1 so Id take game 1 off as well.

36 points in a playoff debut against the 2008 champs isnt good enough for you?

Outplayed by every pg...
Rose>Fisher
Rose>Skip
Rose>Mo Williams
Rose>Kidd
Rose>Bibby
Rose>Blake
Rose>Chalmers

And I mean, the team won on the road in overtime, so Rose was just riding the gravy train of his teammates.

Re-read my complaint, it wasnt about his 1 game, that 1 game was just that. ONE GAME I never said that ONE GAME wasnt notable

And it was more than just his turnovers, its his utter inability to value possessions on both ends. You cut him some slack because hes a rookie, fine with me, but you dont put him on a pedestal he doesnt belong with either. Rose was far from a superstar in this years playoffs. And his play down the stretch of games was abysmal aside from that one game. Him and Rondo ran the show for entire games though, but come 4th quarter or OT, neither he or Rondo were heard from.

Was it a case of Pau and Odom getting there message across about the change of play, or was it a counter from Phil-Kobe to the way the Nuggets have been playing him?

Either way its predicated on how aggressive the supporting cast is, some nights Kobe has to force the issue, other nights he can look to defer. Bron hasnt had that option once this series.

Well if he's goign to get it any game this series, it best ****ing be this one.

As far as the Lakers and Kobe, I think it was a combination of both. I mean, had Lamar been the Lamar of the rest of the series, Kobe would have taken it, but lamar stepped it up. So he could just draw the double and make the pass, which he did, though he had 7 TO's, which a couple were excusable, but most were not. But he picked and chose his spots to score, which is what he needed to do. He basically forced other people to step up, and they knew they needed to,a nd they did.

I thought you were saying that he didn't belong on the list for great performances for round 1 game 1 specifically. If that's not what you were saying, then my apologies.

And to be honest, I agree that he made quite a few mistakes on both ends. I don't see it as a "not valuing every possession" issue, rather that he's just doesn't know how to operate in the playoffs. With experience, hopefully he'll figure it out. And yeah, he disappeared many of the 4th quarters and overtimes. I really wish he would have asserted himself alot more in those situations, but oh well. The same problem surfaced in the regular season at times, too.
