    Re: Basketball 2017

    I love seeing the social media reactions to this. Lots of "Warriors are ruining the league" from the fans of a league who love to idolize the Celtics and Lakers dominating for a decade and the Bulls' two three-peats.

    If there was one spot where the Warriors were meh, it was center, where it's been more or less a placeholder for the current run. They usually got out-rebounded, partly because their style put the emphasis and getting back on D and winning based on pure number of possessions, but partly because even when they did battle for rebounds they never had the presence down low (other than usually Green). On that level, the Cousins deal, for such a low amount, is amazing. Yeah their might be some personality issues, but I think Couisins will treat it as a rehab that let's him improve his resume by getting a title. Additionally, it might be the injury is worse than expected, so the Warriors were willing to burn the 5.3M on the fact he will get better quicker than other teams assume, and if he does that will make the deal even more ridiculous.

    Do BB nerds distinguish 3s from other shots when analyzing offensive rebounds? Rebounds off 3s are a different thing, aren't they, often bouncing far away from the net? That 6'6 wingman has just as good a chance as the tall timber down low. Seems like that would affect stats for a team that puts up a lot of 3s.

    No idea on the stats. And that's a good point about a 3-bound being different than a regular rebound, and again it hasn't exactly killed the Warriors given their overall talent and strategy. But as an eyeball test, it did seem to me like they conceded a lot on the boards even during their championship seasons.

    And both parties are angry. Kawhi's angry because he's NOT going to the Lakers, and DeRozan feels like Toronto stabbed him the back.

    Melo to the Hawks, who will then release him so he can join whatever team wants him.
