Ty Lawson's stats as a starter so far...

This also includes the philly game today, so far I'm impresssed:

6 games

15.0 PPG, 3.0 RPG, 5.8 APG, 1.2 SPG, 1.5 TO PG

54% FG, 27% 3PT, 85% FT

Even though Lawson is shooting around 42% from behind the arc this season, I still don't think he's a good 3 point shooter.

Speed and Quickness is the new NBA

If you are at an elite level at both of those and have a little knowledge of the game I really think you have a shot at today's NBA

young dave im sorry but

young dave im sorry but you're completely and horribly confused

say i'm elite in speed and quickness and i played a little bit of basketball in HS (thus showing that i have a little knowledge of the game)...does that mean i have a legit shot of playing in the NBA?

by the way this isn't hypothetical..im extremely fast and quick but there is NO WAY i could play in the NBA...not even 0,1%

Actually no. Watch the Lakers, Celtics, Magic, Cavs, Spurs, Hawks, and Mavericks. They aren't beating teams with speed. They beat them by guarding people, playing intelligently, and physically overpowering weaker opponents who think that speed and athleticism is what matters in the NBA. There are nights where the Magic or Lakers are hitting everything from 3, but the reason they are going to be a 60-65 win teams is that when they aren't hitting that they can grind out wins on the low block. Kick it into Dwight, Vince, or Rashard. The Lakers go to Kobe, Kobe, Pau, Kobe, Ron Ron, Kobe, Lamar, Kobe, Bynum, Kobe. Nobody gets more points in the paint than Atlanta. The Cavs hammer people with Shaq and that 500 lbs train barreling down the lane in LeBron.

Ty Lawson is in a good spot, because he can be a 2nd quarter stud when Denver is healthy. When they are without Melo and Billups, somebody is going to get numbers, Nene is capable of getting 20-10 like he has been, but if he is getting 20-10 the team is going to be bad. Same for Lawson.

Excellent comment BTPH. Post

Excellent comment BTPH. Post control is still the most overlooked aspect of today's NBA. People like to act like the game today is completely different than its been even 10 years ago. But you have always needed a strong post presences, or at least an overall physical team to compete. Straight line speed is great in fast break scenarios, but you will rarely use that in the half court, with a defender in your face.

As for Lawson, his shot brakes down from deeper range, so defenders know to give him a half a step of room. His shot is easier to block from deep and his dribble drive is his most dangerous skill. He's a smart point guard thats very mature in his game, with some flaws that will keep him from being anything more than a decent starter.

I still wouldn't consider

I still wouldn't consider Lawson a shooter. He makes 42% of his 3's on like 1.5 attempts a contest. His shot isn't broke though, but he only takes shots when he's like super wide open.
