Bro? You got The HCP clickin on links that show me THIS? This don't help son.
Think of it as a storage room. I couldn't be your son. Possibly it's the other way around. hahaha
I will explain it in a way that you might understand.
Assume there is an NBA game going on, and in the broadcast truck, the director needs some kind of statistics to put on the screen, say - something like "how many points a player has".
The information is easy to access, the director sees the score board in the arena and can answer that "player X has 23 points" - that's called "accessing information from direct memory".
Sometimes the question is more complicated, like "where did player X on the other team go to college". The director does not have this information - but he shouts to the serfs in the truck "do you know where BlaBla McBlashphemy went to college" and someone in the truck knows - that's not directly from the director's memory, but he got it from local stored information in a somewhat harder to reach storage - that's called a "cache".
If the director needs some arcane information - he will need to call it from out of the truck or go to the library to find a book. That's getting it from "external storage".
In the example above, @stampedehero gave us information from his picture cache, but it was slightly wrong answer. It's as if the director asked "who is our most clutch player" and the cache in the truck (@HCP) came with a wrong answer (Kobe). A good director will understand that the correct answer was (lillard) and that the cache (@HCP) is faulty.
Yeah i got a dog anyway. Wouldn't work out.
Is this a travel? @dviss1
Just would like to say the truck has been doing much better lately about not forcing us to miss action.
It still gets close sometimes, but it's better than it was pre-break.
I still don't like the baseline shot while the action is on the other side of the court. But I can live with that.
I do like the over head looking down views. Those are very telling.
I don't mind the overhead view.
Though most on this forum flipped out on @HCP last year because the truck was doing an overhead view on an out of bounds play.
Aminu got the ball and we didn't get to see him shoot from the corner 3. He made the shot, but... Randomly watching a ball fly through the air and not knowing who shot it without the process of elimination was annoying.
I'd like this, but you lost me at, "Assume there is an NBA game going on"
Thanks man, I'll pass it along.
Fell asleep watching this game. Woke up and looked at the box score, surprised but wasn’t surprised lillard finished with 32 and 10. Nurkic has a really good game. Looked like ET played well and has been the last few games. Super impressed with collins. He just turned 20, that’s crazy. I think this win streak continues against the Cavs. 11 on Thursday. EASY
Love wades reaction haha
This video won't load for me for some reason. I tried it on two different computers.
