Main reason Houston is struggling is they lost their advantage of being all analytical. They only won so much is because they shot way more 3s than everyone. Now everybody's doing it.


So they were never good in the first place? They just shot a lot of 3's? :lol: :facepalm-gesture-smiley-emoticon:

That's not why houston is struggling lol.


Yeah they've overachieved the last 2 years. When we got D'antoni, Anderson and Gordon I thought were going to be trash, but the 3s made up for the no defense and bad shooting percentages.

It's simple math and I knew our window would be short before the rest of the league caught on.

Thats not the whole story at all. You guys hedged your bets on Melo for financial reasons....and you failed to believe that the sky was gonna fall. Not just you...but ex players believed that too.

The Melo effect:

Quote:
• In 194 minutes with Anthony on the court, the Jazz outscored the Thunder by 58 points and the Thunder had a net rating of minus-12.6.

• In the 94 minutes with Anthony on the bench, the Thunder outscored the Jazz by 32 points and had a net rating of plus-18.1.

Those splits paint a drastic picture. But here's a more drastic fact: After dumping Melo in an offseason transaction, the 2018-19 Thunder suddenly have the most efficient defense in the NBA.


Worse than everyone catching on with 3s...you guys gave up 2 flexible 2 way players for 1 archaic inefficient 1 way one, over believing in the ability of the Harden Paul Dantoni combination to make it work....and for the record, the George Westbrook combo did a better job of making it work with Melo than they did, and Melo was far less cooperative with OKC...refusing bench duty.

The 76ers arent gonna be the team of the future. Simmons cant shoot, and is showing no improvement in his shot. Embiid dont got enough moves in the post, is showing more interest in shooting long range shots, but isnt showing an improvement at doing it, and neither guy is much more than average on D. Jimmy butler the best and most complete player on that team, and they should run everything through him, until those other 2 step their game up.

Melo was a last minute addition to the team for crumbs. Those other guys were long gone and replaced already with Knight, MCW, Chriss and Innis. Other than that Houston has been playing 7 new players trying to find some consistency. I like Innis for Ariza in the long run, Knight is yet to play and the rookies are getting way more time than usually the case with D'antoni's team because of injuries and because Melo didn't like his role.

you trashing Philly whenever they lose one game is getting tiresome. motherfuckers can reel off like 5 or 6 in a row, lose a game, then here you come with some nonsense. shut up.

I trash them when they are winning and when they are losing. My opinions on embiid and simmons have been the same for the last year. You need to shut the fuck up, not me. They dont have enough, and they aint growing. That's my story, and im sticking to it.
