http://insider.espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/8595253/nba-kobe-bryant-joakim-noah-overrated-defenders

Rondo is known for his long arms and massive hands, both of which have helped him pile up 843 career steals going into the 2012-13 season (which ranks second only to Chris Paul over the same six-year period). While those steals-related stats are impressive, there's evidence that Rondo's overall defensive impact hasn't lived up to his All-Defense reputation for several years.

Rondo's career counterpart PER of 15.6 doesn't tell the tale of an elite on-ball defender, and plus/minus data show a decline in performance within the team concept as well. Over Rondo's first four NBA seasons, the Celtics were 2.2 points of defensive rating better with him on the floor, including an incredible 8.3-point difference during Rondo's rookie season of 2006-07. Since the start of the 2010-11 season, however, that number has been flipped; over the past two seasons, Boston was actually 2.1 points per 100 possessions better when Rondo wasn't in the game.

The emergence of backup point guard Avery Bradley -- who posted a young-Rondo-esque minus-4.4 on/off defensive differential last year -- is certainly a mitigating circumstance, but like Noah, Rondo's plus/minus numbers aren't impressive even after accounting for the "good defensive backup" factor. According to regularized adjusted plus/minus, Rondo ranked tied for No. 46 among guards last season (in terms of defense), a far fall from the second-place ranking he held early in his career.



Not to meantion his inefficiency and his constantly leading bad offenses. Hands down the most overrated PG in the league. CP3 is miles better.

Again, whats the problem with this idiot Tjarks? Everytime i see a column written by him it includes trashing/downplaying the success of the Mavs, specially Dirk.

Now this crap, again between the lines trying to lift Gasol pretty much over Dirk
http://basketball.realgm.com/article/224514/Big_Men_Pairs

Best parts:
That was the main problem in Dallas for almost a decade: since Dirk Nowitzki has always been a defensive sieve, that left protecting the basket to slow-footed lumberers like Erick Dampier and Brendan Haywood

sieve...okay.jpg

The biggest difference between Pau Gasol and Dirk Nowitzki isn’t what they do on the court; it’s the type of players you can put next to them. Nowitzki, the best scoring 7’0 in the game, and Gasol, one of the most versatile 7’0 in the NBA, are both future Hall of Famers, but Gasol’s ability to do almost everything on the court allows many more types of big men to be successful next to him.

Odom’s game has declined over the last two years not just because he’s no longer in shape but because he has yet to find a big man partner as compatible as Gasol.

I have to apologize to Odom. It wasnt his fault, it was Dirks fault. Wrong skillset, so Odom had no chance to play up to his potential in Dallas

If somebody wants to argue that Pau's a better choice at center than Dirk, I'm fine with that. Arguing that Pau does more to make life easy for his teammates than Dirk, that non-traditional front-court types can't have success playing with Dirk (KVH and Bass much?), or that anyone other than Odom is to blame for the worthless $#!t-sucking piece of trash he turned into...that's all just retarded.

I think this is more a credit to Pop than a slight against the Mavs or RC, but I agree with the sentiment. It would be really nice.

The most impressive thing about Pop, in my eyes, is that his guys on the floor almost always play with total confidence. They may not be super talented, and they may not win (like tonight), but they move themselves and the ball with such incredible purpose. Their offense tonight was more fluid and confident than the Mavs' starting lineup has been for ~80% of this season.

It's always a power issue for Stern. Same reason Cuban got all those fines because it was in his view a struggle for power. Pop sending the stars home has a perception that he can do what he wants, when he wants. Why not just have it where a team has a choice to sit their stars 1-3 games a year, but it can't be a showcased game? There are simple solutions to such quibbles that don't have to involve ridiculous sanctions.

I've always admired Pop and his ability to consistently bring in and develop talent. They have such a talented core that they can make only incremental changes in strategy and have a "beginners" guide thats easy to pick up and hard to master.

It also means that they can hand pick guys that aren't the most talented, but guys that fit the system of theirs instead of molding talent to fit their system

Lawl Charlotte. They are so embarrassed by so many seats at the end of games that they offered fans a SECOND ticket if they are still in the arena at the end of the fourth quarter.

The Charlotte Bobcats are in severe trouble with attendance and the only way to get fans into the seat are by giving tickets away; and that's just what they decided to do on Friday night. At the beginning of the 4th quarter the announcer presented the following: If anyone of your Charlotte Bobcats players hit a 3 pointer in the 4th quarter then we will give everyone in the arena a free ticket for Monday nights game vs the Portland Trailblazers. With 9 seconds left to go in a game that was out of reach with the Bobcats about to lose Nick Young [Kemba Walker, actually, with one second on the clock] hit a 3 pointer which lit up the approximately 9 thousand fans in attendance.

Then again, first prize may be seeing one Bobcats game.
Second price may be seeing two.

Stern doesn't like Lakers having a disadvantage
http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nba-ball-dont-lie/david-stern-stamp-hack-shaq-tactics-231558614--nba.html

Stern was quick to point out that the league has instituted a rule that successfully stopped the tactic in the last two minutes of games: Foul a player away from the ball, and after the the free throw, the fouled team gets the ball back. The penalty is so steep that the tactical advantage of fouling is gone.
Stern said he wanted to make that rule last all game.
"I would have liked to have seen the rule changed to make the last-two-minute rule the whole rule," he said. "It was getting to a point last year where, [in the] first period, they were just grabbing players. I think that's ludicrous.
"We tried to change it to any time in the game because last year I guess it was everyone was fouling Tiago Splitter early on and the committee didn't want to do it. And so that's just the way it is. Because the reality is that there are a lot of basketball purists -- and I understand that point of view -- who say, 'Hey, why don't you learn to shoot foul shots? You're supposed to be a pro.'"
It's an issue that won't go away anytime soon, and it puts the purists in an awkward position defending a set-up that prevents actual basketball play.

I think that this is just great for the league. If it keeps up (fingers crossed), then it is big blow to the idea of organizing super teams. When you get Nash, Kobe, and Howard on the same team, then a big target is painted right on your back. Dwight and Kobe are playing at a high level, but coach just doesn't hold the team accountable on defense. We all know Nash won't fix that problem. It seems like they'll have to win games scoring 115+ every game or not at all.

"Defining moment: Los Angeles had managed to whittle a 26-point Knick lead down to a mere 6 with 1:27 remaining, but after Raymond Felton missed two straight off-balance jumpers, Tyson Chandler dominated the offensive glass with two consecutive trademark backtaps to allow New York to control the ball for a game-sealing 1:09 of play.

Did anyone else see the officiating travesty that was the last 10 or so minutes of the Heat-Thunder? Heat got ALL the calls including an especially egregious offensive charge called against Westbrook as an obviously still moving Ray Allen slid under him. Another highlight was Ray Allen flopping like a mofo on a Kendrick Perkins screen and getting the call.

Then on the final play of the game with OKC down 3 Diva Wade appeared to hit Westbrook on the follow thru of his 3point attempt. No call. The strangest part
about it was ABC only showed the replay once from the same lame angle we saw it from in real time. Ray Allen went to shoot the tech and in all that time thats the best replay of a disputed play they could come up with?
Didnt they have like a thousand cameras at the marquee Xmas matchup?

Shoddy officiating and production work from ABC.

The Ray Allen bullshit was the worst, to me. He couldn't remember which shoulder was supposed to be hurt. WEAK.

I'll actually give the refs the benefit of the doubt on the Westbrook charge, as Westbrook himself decided to change lines on his way down the court. I mean...a defender has to stand *somewhere*, you know? The offensive guy can't just aim at him and collide. (I'd have probably opted for no call, though.)

No opinion on the last shot foul or no foul. It would have to be pretty egregious to earn a call in that situation.

After the game, Melo waits for KG in the tunnel to the visitors' lockerroom, then tries to confront KG on the Celtics team bus. NYPD, MSG security and NYKs coach Woodson intervene before Melo can be beaten to a pulp. League suspends Melo for the NYKs upcoming game against the Pacers. That, NBA fans, is leadership.

Celtics move the ball so much better w/out Rondo. Not saying they're better.
But definitely less pounding of the rock and spacing is better with some combo of Lee, Barbosa, Terry and Bradley. Also the lineup with Bradley and Lee at guard and Pierce/ Green is pretty stout defensively. Green is really playing well! Just a question of whether they can rebound enough.

Wonder if they might take a chance on Dalembert if the price is right? Not sure what they could send out though. He'd help them protect the rim and rebound.

Looks like they'll give Wilcox a shot first but he's never been a dependable dude.
Also Melo played a bit. Watched most of his games at Cuse and still think the guy can be a good Center down the road.
He's seems like something of a flake but has good energy and defensive instincts

DONUT 12: The Final Word ...
Our man Chuck Perry points out that this season, the Mavs are paying Brendan Haywood ($6.3 million), twice as much as Vince Carter ($3.1 million), to NOT be on the team.

Tom Haberstroh of ESPN.....
List of players who can match LeBron in assists per game and 3FG% this season: Steve Nash and Jose Calderon. That's it.

LeBron has shot at least 50 pct in 17 of his 19 games in 2013. Carmelo has shot 50+ pct in just 16 games this season.

LeBron is shooting 71.4 FG% over his last five games. Michael Jordan's best FG% over five games? 69.6 FG% back in 1988.

LeBron has been on fire. It's starting to become harder and harder to dislike the guy, and I am just starting to appreciate watching a once in a generation type of player.

Well, he could have done it in Mavs uniform. Keeping him should have been a no-brainer, whatever the cost. His attitude, his relationship with Dirk... all priceless.

Diva Wade and his jacked jawline will be out of the league within 2 years of this being implemented, bet. Also David West will suddenly shrivel in size and look(and play) more like Tom Gugliotta

You'd think Rudy Gay could make one clutch shot when he shoots like twenty times in fourth quarter and overtime. So disappointing.

I don't see why not. In two years they have 1 title.I think this years playoffs will be the most interesting out of all of them. Heat aren't unbeatable.

Hmmmm - total free agent
It will be very interesting offseason for him. I doubt a team could get insurance for his contract because of his knees - ala Amare Stodemire.

There is just too much history regarding his health for me to want the Mavs to sign him.
That and the fact he is an ex Laker.

I wouldn't be mad if the Mavs went after Bynum hard. That is, after Howard and Paul are exhausted, both of which don't look promising as far as each player willing to leave.

Not to mention money. I'm really hoping the Jazz can close the season out well and bump the Lakers.

100 million for a lottery team would be the sweetest reward since A-Rod's doozy.

(was their pick this year part of the Howard trade?)


If LA "won" the lottery this year (with their pick shipped off)... THAT would be an incredibly delicious story :)

Another note on the NBA referees.......

In the month of April (7 games):

Lakers Opponents - 90-113 (FTM-FTA)
Lakers - 153-208

Range:
Lakers Opponents 7-21
Lakers - 18-50

Against Golden State, the Lakers shot 50 FTs to the Warriors 16. Whew!

I'm not sure if this has been a trend all year or not......
