Your point is! So are Derrick Rose, Westbrook, and most definately Curry... The ero style is a street ball type game without the hacking smh! Getting from one end of the floor to the other is what you call fast break points... Plus, a guy cant be judged on what he has been with one team and a successful system.. All the greats (not saying he is great) are GREAT street ball players. Its the evolution of the NBA. Where slow doesnt live or exist anymore! Lebron jumper was suspect also when he went to the finals, Westbrook jumper is for sure suspect and why would the ball be in his hands during crucial times other than when he can take advantage of a situation. We do still have the mamba and if Kobe doesnt have to put as much energy in on the defensive side then he would be 4th quarter fresh. Add to what we have is best case scenario. LMAO and you said Rondo, his jumper is more suspect than any point guard in the league. Keep those other guys away from LA! We arent up for taking everybody else left overs who hasnt won anything (Melo). Only way I'd give up Pau is for a Love or Aldridge swop and thats it! Cousins actually has post moves and like Bynum, isnt a push over.. Phil said in his article that we need a young point guard to compete with the rest. I wouldnt care to take a point guard who hated my team but one who needed out of a bad situation and on the big stage(Kentucky), will bring it. The guy is Rod Strickland, Ron Harper times two! A big point guard with vision and when needed can also play some minutes at shooting guard. See its about matchups and different lineups you can throw at somebody (like the Heat benching of Haslem in a FINALS). Those 7.6 assist he average a game will increase dramaticly because of why, more weapons smh
I here ya that Wall can get better = but its pointless to compare his jumper to LBJ. LBJ can get by for his enitre career without a consistent jumper cuz he can fill the stat sheet without trying = once in a lifetime type player. There are 100s of John Walls running around U.S right now.
Westbrook jumper from mid range is not suspect at all. Maybe the 3 ball but not mid range. Rose & Westbrook can play within a system better than Wall at this current time.
Yes Rondo jumper is more suspect but he is already proven in NBA so what he can do on both sides of the ball & how he change the tempo of a gm is greatly more appreciated & can cancel out his suspect jumper = cuz he will fill the stat sheet easily plus he already knows his niche in NBA = better fit for a TItle run.
Cousins being compared to Bynum should only apply to them bing head cases. nothing else. If he was Ron Harper 2.0 I would argeee completely bring him but he isnt there yet & doesnt know what type of player he wants to be in NBA yet. He doesnt play the same in NBA with confidence like he does when he is unstoppable in streetball. He 2nd guesses himsel fin NBA.
Yes it about matchups & chemistry & thats why you cant expect a Title with Wall & COusins mixed together even with Kobe!
Heat have 4-5 guys that are catch & shoot / spot up guys that can hit 40% from 3 while having 2 of the best penetrators & dish guys in PnR system. If Lakers had as many reliable shooters as Heat they wouldnt need drasitic roster changes.
