Things I've LEARNED in The 1st half of the 1st Round of the Playoffs
-- Kevin Durant has the purest jump shot in the NBA. And he can get it off from wherever he wants.
-- Ron Artest can play physical defense, but he can be a minor liability when defending a player who has the ball in their hands in isos.
-- Raymond Felton is the worst defensive PG in the playoffs. Not Derek Fisher. Not Mike Bibby. Not Jason Williams. It's Raymond Felton. Jameer Nelson new nickname is Professor Nelson because of how he's schooling Felton (......don't you dare call me joke lame).
-- Joakim Noah plays alot stronger and tougher than you'd expect a guy with his narrow frame to. He understands leverage and he knows how to use his arms to finish and contest on D.
-- Kobe has been inefficient somewhat since the All-Star break, and it's coming back to haunt the Lakers. Let's see how he performs when the Lakers go back to Staples.
-- Brandon Jennings is going to be a top 5 PG in 2 years. He's super talented, and he's a leader of a playoff team as a rookie.
-- Portland has the deepest team in the NBA from top to bottom. Shame on you B.Roy for playing yesterday. Playing too early could have long-term effects man!
-- The Jazz are beating the Nuggets because they are outcoaching them miserably with George Karl's absence looming. Did anyone see Karl today on TV? He looks really sick, my prayers are with him.
-- Joe Johnson is the most underrated player in basketball. A superstar who never gets recognized.
-- Lebron James is a freak of nature. Derrick Rose is too. When will they get Rose some help!!
-- Russell Westbrook`has looked really good in the playoffs so far. I'm still not ready to say he's better than Derrick Rose though, but he has been as good as any PG in the Western Conference playoffs.
Just to add to that: Cleveland and Milwaukee there is still nothing to do there.
Compliments to Josh Smith and Joakim Noah. Stating the obvious lol.
Actually to add something serious.
- Manu Ginobli is one tough player
- The Mavericks will never be clutch as long as Dirk Nowitzki is on that team
- Don't sleep on George Hill.
Ray Allen pureset jump-shot,
just dont need to shot as much
I was close to giving you a thumbs down for dissing my player, but I have come to accept the truth.
Thumbs up for you.
-- Kris Humphries is the best player in the NBA.
Doctors said that Roy can't hurt his knee any worse than it is at this point...hence him playing, obviously if there was any chance of him seriously injuring his knee any further the Blazers would never let him play.
You just stated things that an average and avid basketball fan know. And facts that an average non-fan wouldn't know.
Yea. I mean....It really wasn't supposed to be rocket science. Just kinda stating what I've noticed. What most may have thought, but I came out on made a post about it.
