Does it include opponent free throws in the points per possesion ratio?
Well we are all entitled to our own opinion and if you think defensive stats are great then hat's certainly your prerogative. I would expect the same courtesy.
Huh? I'm just point out the flaws in your logic. So now you're saying offensive efficiency is a reliable stat but defensive efficiency isn't, when they are essentially the same stat. Especially considering the context of the post that YOU responded to, about our offense/defense becoming stale.
Offensive and defensive efficiency are two sides of the same coin. Offense = how many points you score per 100 possessions. Defense = how many points you give up per 100 possessions. Since the whole point of basketball is to score more points than your opponent, over the course of an 82 game sample size these two stats measure how well a team's offense/defense is doing. And since you want to bring up past years, in 2017/18 we were 8th in defensive efficiency, but 16th in offense. Are you going to say that Stotts has us as both a good offensive and defensive team last year? Or does only defensive efficiency matter in this case?
You are definitely entitled to your opinion. But I am also entitled to question your credibility when you use statistics to back up those opinions. Then misinterpret those statistics and backtrack on said opinion because they don't actually support the point you're trying to make.
You never answered my question. Also, do you think we have become more stale offensively and defensively every year under Stotts? That was the point I was discussing. If you don't want to answer questions, that's fine and we can both move on.
What question am I supposed to answer? I'm not the person you responded to in the beginning. I'm pointing out the flaws in the logic and stats that YOU used to support YOUR opinion.
Actually, never mind. We will just have to move on.
You should read all posts on a forum as opinions; that's what people do on forums.
I'm not trying to have a conversation with you. I'm pointing out the flaws in your logic. That is all.
I'm just exposing the idiocy in your posts for the rest of the people in this forum.
we are done. Have a nice day.
Why don't you think this is a personal insult?
Tell a woman she's "acting like" a bitch and see what happens. You'll probably get a facefull of water.
Typical deflection. Since you pointed that deflection out, you are now an asshole.
See how this goes?
water if you are lucky. I was thinking much worse.
Cup never insults anyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
How dare you!!!!!!!!!!!!
lol. and here comes hoopsjocko trying to pile on. You really crack me up jocko. first you try and start something with kj and now me.
it's like the Knick defense under Pat Riley 25 years ago. Foul and foul and foul again on every single play...just foul over and over and over and eventually, nobody will notice you're fouling...except the people fouled
This is what I get for defending your honor?????????????????????????
I'm not starting shit with @kjironman1. I think even he agreed that he was really sour on CJ after that game for awhile.
It's pretty funny that you say someone is acting like an asshole and then try to act like poor Cup is being piled on when your bullshit is called out.
When someone points out that you are not correct with a statistic you tried to claim supported your argument maybe try just saying oops my bad instead of doubling down and then resorting to name calling.
Here's a question:
For about 4 yrs now, Vanterpool and Tibbets have been interviewed for open coaching positions. They are always at the forefront of candidates. Woj continually tweets about them and has even endorsed them as solid on a bunch of podcasts. DV, especially has been considered the guard whisperer.
Yet, why has neither of them been offered a job? Is this an indictment on Stotts?
I still think losing Jay Triano in the summer of 2016 was a big loss that never really gets mentioned. He left to be Earl Watson's lead assistant.
It's so hard to tell if what you are saying is on Stotts. It could be they are both bad interviewers which wouldn't be the fault of Stotts at all.
Memphis is interviewing Tibbets.
