    @buc em I'm going to admit I was wrong about the Sixers. God damn it Ben Simmons is a savage

    To be fair, I'm always rooting for any team with Aussies or Kiwis

    When have Zach Lowe or Nate Duncan ever taken a stepback 3?

    I want the detailed analysis of Chris Webber or Nate Robinson on this. Guys who actually played the game.

    Honestly there's so much merit to having played the game at a certain level to comment on certain things. Stuff such as for a right handed player generally it's easier to pull up off the dribble from your left hand, or when players who aren't great 3 point shooters are much more comfortable taking a step inside the 3 even though it's just a tiny step.

    Some of these dudes who just write for a living and never played ball well enough just annoys the **** out of me. It's like me reading every book about MMA but never trained a day in my life. You got to do it to know the detail behind it

    I remember Monte McCutchen came to one of my classes in college years back (discussion that day was on power dynamics in sports or something I think) and he was saying that after every game they go back re-watch the whole game and essentially peer-review the whole crew and all the calls the other refs made. I think he threw out some stat like they have a 97% - 98% success rate.

    It was a small class and a friend of mine in the class was/is a huge LeBron hater, this was right after he joined Miami, made a very audible scoff and Monte asked if he disagreed and my boy asked if he could pull up youtube :lol:

    i know a ref in Atlanta that does SEC games and he hangs with a couple NBA ref guys...says it a known fact people aint paying money to watch refs control the game. Stars bring the money out not refs.

    another thing kahwi would be a gotdamn idiot to come back in the playoffs...he should sit out and remind them fools how much they really need him. i would make sure im a 1000% healthy if i was him.
