Yeah, it's crazy that in one year they went from an absolutely gunning 3pt team (and efficient) to probably one of the lowest 3pt shooting teams this year. That'll change a bit once IT is on the court though.

It's not the number of fouls they're calling. it's how terrible the calls they're making are.

like I said, I literally saw a player with his feet set, hands straight up, 2-3 feet outside the restricted area have an offensive player jump into him knee first into the chest, and it was a defensive foul.

I see so many of those. defender goes straight up, gets jumped into, and defensive foul.

Guess were going to be looking at another one of these games after the Wizards took 38 to our 19 FT's the other night.

I'm used to it as a Warriors fan.

To clarify ... for years the Warriors seemed to get screwed by refs. If a team came in physical the calls seemed to go the way of the team being more physical. Now that they are stars they get a closer balance on the calls.

But he's not those guys. He's a rookie who's still trying to figure out his game. Plus, most of the shots he took was because he was wide open. Makes zero sense for him NOT to shoot it. Kyrie is a completely different story.. he shoots it because he doesn't care.

I'm not sure what you're saying.

Kinda my pre-draft evaluation. He's going to make some highlight plays in the open court, will make some nice passes, but when this game slows down to be a halfcourt game he's going to struggle quite a bit. He doesn't have the 1st step burst to create for himself, and when he can't do that defenses don't need to move as fast, and it takes away passing lanes.

Games like last night, with little defense and lots of fast breaks (didn't notice the total of 39 turnovers in this game) are ones where he's always going to look great.

I think I got that from something Silver said:


And, incidentally, wherever possible, they should rest at home. Because there, while I feel for the home fans, just as much as the away fans, the away fans may only get a chance to see that team once. And of course, the home team home fans can see that team many times.

But he also said he understands that players need to rest and will miss games. He just doesn't want multiple starters to rest for the same game which is not what the Sixers are doing with Embiid.

It still seems to me to be a toothless rule.

That was from him talking about ideally what the rule would cover, but for now they only approved for national games.

I think the idea is multiple stars shouldn't sit, and Ideally they wouldn't do it on the road.

Yup, you can tell who actually watched the game and who looks at box scores. Ball got to the hole Many times in fast break and half court. His body isn't filled out yet but when he gets his man body.. he will finish a lot more efficiently. He's also not getting calls which is to be expected as a Rookie. Lonzo Ball is the truth, surround him with shooters and he will find them for open looks. He should've had 4-5 more assist last night but they just didn't knock down the open looks
