If I'm Stan...and this doesn't get better...I walk out of the game on this team. I go to the locker room and tell them to figure it out themselves. There's no way that this is what he's drawing up.

If I'm Stan, I just have the team shoot 500,000 threes combined the next practice...considering that's the only thing we do on offense and considering how pathetic we're shooting today.

This is like watching a college game: ****** teams hoisting threes all game long.

How people forget that Wade,LBJ,Bosh avg'd nearly 10 FTAs per game before they joined.

Common sense says that it's difficult to guard 5 guys when three of them demand a double team.

Stats: Heat have 5 3PTAs, Magic with 18 and yet still have 18 FTAs. LeBron has 0 3PTAs this game and hasn't shot one yet this season. But the stats don't tell the story, you have to watch the game.

The Magic are playing the HEAT very physically, the only way they stand a chance, and the score is indicative of this.

Wade>You
12-21-2011, 09:43 PM
Magic are a 3pt chucking team, how they ever reached the FT line 18 times is a mystery to me.

ManRam
12-21-2011, 09:44 PM
I mean, even if the Magic shot just 25% from three (awful) they would have been down 5 points at half...

It was only a matter of time before a few of these shots fell. Like I said, we've been getting OPEN looks all night, they just weren't falling.

Dade County

Well, first of all, Dwight. Secondly, we got in the bonus, which helped. We didn't really attack the rim at all...but we drew some good fouls outside of the paint.


And you shot 40 FTs in the first :laugh: I wouldn't complain too much ;)

I always felt the PG is a bit overrated in terms of importance in today's NBA (I'll take a big or a wing over a PG if starting a team)...but the Magic offense turnaround is 100% a result of Jameer's aggressiveness.

Baby hustling a lot too!

Well, it's not good that he's this inconsistent (inconsistency in the pre-season isn't a huge worry)...but it's good because it's obvious how much he can change this offense. He, Hedo and to a lesser extent JJ are the only ones who can dribble-penetrate. If he isn't playing this aggressive, our offense completely stagnates like it did in the first half...

If he were to stay I'm sure he'll make a few good runs but I can't see the and extra superstar/Dwight combo to actually take down the Heat/Knicks.

FYI, nobody said Iman Shumpert is the next Jordan. Things like that just make you look idiotic especially when nobody is saying that.

Nobody is putting "Stock" into a pre-season game. The fact is there is a training camp and these games show what's being worked upon. That's it.

If you want to ramble on and insult people because you want to exaggerate things to make a fanbase look bad then go right ahead.

Punk calm down He was joking

I was being facetious ;)

I know no one does...but, per the size of his fanbase, you hear about him so much. Not saying he doesn't deserve it, but I was using it to illustrate my point.

Uhh No. We played solid defense in both games, we've seen the defensive improve through training camp and scrimmages. It's pretty annoying when people want to act like pre-season games are so different to regular season games in a LOCKOUT season.

Your creating excuses because there will be no change besides rotation and minutes.

Against the Nets..... lmao

Is there something wrong with beating up that ragdoll team? It beats playing each other for 2 weeks lol

Sure, I know it's the Nets but It's still a NBA team....somewhat. We'll see on Sunday.

You shouldn't make much of the preseason to begin with, but these players are competitors that want to win. The Knicks aren't any different, and if that means beating ragdoll teams then so be it.
