My Bleacher Report ride started with a run as a Featured Columnist of the Golden State Warriors and has since grown to a National Featured Columnist role on the NBA team.
On the keyboard, I'm doing everything in my power to help expand your enjoyment of the world's greatest game. On the court, I'm the guy you love to have on your team and hate to play against (provided you love playing with a water faucet, unabashed gunner who chirps nonstop.)
I welcome any and all questions or comments you might have. Leave them for me here, or let me know what I got right, wrong or anything in between over on Twitter.
Thanks for stopping by.
Please stop sensationalizing articles with their headlines. We just want straight-edge journalism.
KD is allowed to smoke hookah, no reason for a write up.
Personally, I think it was either JR, Kenyon Martin, or Allen Iverson who made the Melo leaving NY comment, who do you think it was?
DWade is a beautiful player when healthy. He's adjusted his game now to play more below the rim than above it. He's still got quicks, strength and instincts. He can get you 10 rebounds one night and 3 steals on another.
"Three-peat" is old and tired. It goes back 25 years now. For the Heat, the quest is a TREY BY THE BAY!
your article that suggested trading greg monroe was down right blasphamas of course the pistons are not contenders right now but we would be stupid to think about trading monroe we beat the heat and pacers with this group the only problem is when josh smith shoots jumpers. its going to take time to blend but this big 3 frontcourt will work because monroe and smith are excellent passers and drummond is a great cutter
The thing about Harden is his efficiency. The reason his shooting percentage was not as high was because he wasn't taking a lot of shots. The writer writes that Howard is going to demand more touches than Asik, well Kobe took 20 shots a game with Howard, Harden takes 17 without Howard so I think Harden is going to be fine. Heck Harden might get more touches now that Howard can kick it out to him.
Lets break down Hardens shooting and compare them to Wade and Kobe. Harden only took 17 shots a game and averaged 25 points. Kobe would take 20 shots a game and score 27 points. Wade on the other hand would take 15 shots and score 20 points a game. In that sense Kobe had to take 3 more shots to score 2 more points than Harden. Comparing Wade to Harden gets kind of tricky so we're going to adjust all their numbers to per 36(min a game)
So in per 36, Kobe will take 19 shots a game, make 8(50%) of them and convert them for 25 points a game. Wade will shoot 16 shots, make 8 as well (50%)and convert them for 22 points. So this is where Harden shows how good he is. Harden will shoot 16 shots a game, make 7 of them for 24 points.
So in conclusion, Harden only needs to shoot as much as Wade, could miss one of those shots, and be just behind Kobe who shot 3 more shots than him. Harden Has elite efficiency.
Yes he doesn't play defense, mainly because he is the offense and he probably does not want to wear himself out every game. The Rockets are better defensively without him, but without him the Rockets were a lottery team last year. But until he plays harder on D, I'd still give the top Sg honors to Kobe
You should write an article about the roster of a new dream team with current nba players.
Where can I find a site that tells me the average NBA players stat line is, preferably with a minutes requirement?
Don't take this the wrong way, but your mustache makes you look like you're an expert at luring children into your van.
Will Terrence Jones get big minutes now?
