Sly Jung Dog
No one is quite sure, but it happens.
Another guy setting nice screen is Vonleh he set one last game that he almost broke guard in half and it was a legal screen.
Damn, I thought I was being really sneaky.
And I just thought that everyone hated you....
The Blazers asked me last year why everyone hates me. I explained what was going on and they looked at me like I was nuts.
SlyPokerDog is a SlyPokerDog. Worst insult ever
I love this guy already, he knows his stuff
We all know that the sequence of those events were in the other order Sly, they do the same thing we do. Look at you like you are nuts, ask what you are doing, then listen to whatever comes out and keep trying to go on living our lives.
The Ringer on Jusuf and his effect on Dame: https://theringer.com/how-jusuf-nur...-and-portlands-season-583f7f8355c6#.q7f7kmwba
what went on last year?
Like this year, everyone hated Sly.
I like that a happy article about Dame is brought to me by State Farm!
Whereas if you make multiple posts that Lillard is a perfect basketball player and leader of the free world, that will not be a problem.
"Since the All-Star break, Nurkic is in the top five in the screen assists, which the league defines as a screen that directly leads to a made field goal by that teammate."
"Perimeter offenses thrive on striking fast and taking advantage of mismatches, but sometimes, the biggest mismatch a team will find on a given play is when a center slams a defender out of commission."
Wow are sly poker dog that dumb?
Some one asked about our improve defense, post all star game, specifically our guards. I posted the following in that thread, but since it's a troll thread, it will largely go unnoticed. So, I thought I'd share it here, as well, as more evidence of the Nurk Effect:
Here's the TEAM ratings, before and after the all star break.
Pre All Star: OFFRTG = 106.5, DEFRTG = 109.0, NETRTG = -2.5, Rank = 23
Post All Star: OFFRTG = 111.4, DEFRTG = 107.6, NETRTG = +3.8, Rank = 6
The defense has gotten better, but the offense has improved even more. With both moving in the right direction, our NETRTG has gone from 23rd in the league (pre all star) to 6th in the league (post all star).
In a more traditional sense, our average point differential has gone from -2.8 ppg to +3.2 ppg. That's a pretty impressive turnaround.
For Crabbe and C.J. (insert obligatory small sample size post all star disclaimer):
Pre All Star: OFFRTG = 107.9, DEFRTG = 109.3, NETRTG = -1.4
Post All Star: OFFRTG = 110.6, DEFRTG = 107.4, NETRTG = +3.2
Pre All Star: OFFRTG = 104.1, DEFRTG = 110.3, NETRTG = -6.2
Post All Star: OFFRTG = 110.7, DEFRTG = 109.4, NETRTG = +1.3
You didn't ask, but someone will...
Pre All Star: OFFRTG = 108.4, DEFRTG = 110.7, NETRTG = -2.3
Post All Star: OFFRTG = 113.4, DEFRTG = 107.0, NETRTG = +6.4
And, the biggest turnaround on the team (not surprisingly)...
Pre All Star: OFFRTG = 96.0, DEFRTG = 105.5, NETRTG = -9.6
Post All Star: OFFRTG = 109.1, DEFRTG = 100.8, NETRTG = +8.3
I was actually wondering last night "who's impacted more from the arrival of Nurkic, Dame or Vonleh?" Looks like it wasn't that stupid of a question...
