Lol...

That makes no sense at all... Blocking shots is all about timing... ask anyone that has played basketball or better yet go try to play basketball. There is move directly tied to trying to effect a players timing (pump fake).

Hand-eye coordination directly correlates to catching the ball because it requires you to see the ball and then use your hands to catch the ball. Dribbling isn't necessarily a good measurement of hand-eye because you can dribble with out looking at the ball. By definition, block shots does require some hand-eye coordination, but it requires elite timing if anything. Literally everyone can stick there hand up and block a shot, but not everyone can catch a basketball, football, basketball etc...

Just watch Dwayne Wade, he is small but has great timing and is able to block shots from players that are a foot taller than him.

Well part of catching the ball is keeping you eyes on the ball.

I'm not going to dive to deep into this argument but a lot of times it appears that Biz is looking at the rim or defenders to quickly and taking his eyes off the ball before he actually catches it which doesn't have as much to do with hand eye coordination .

It is all the above in terms of Biz not having the ability to catch passes...he is overthinking, lacks general anticipation in non-obvious post pass situations.

Like MKG has to learn to be ready to shoot when he catches, BIz needs to realize he needs to be in a ready to catch position in traffic. Part of the issue is he is rushing it too...bc the game is not slow to him offensively yet.

On a pick and roll with Jeff Taylor Biz set the pick, Rolled to the basket(only to get a rebound), JT got a hard double team on the jumper and passed it in mid air but hit the back of Biz's head.

Biz may just be used to being the raw guy that no one tried to find on offense so he does not expect to get the ball.

Basketball is a lot about having the rhythm of the game in your head(dribbling, rebounding, shooting) and Biz just does not identify the beats(if you will) of scoring opportunities to anticipate passes in various situations.

It all comes down to his lack of expousure of the game.

Someone needs to show him "come fly with me", Magic and Larry Bird sports illustrated video bc after watching one of these I swear I improve my scoring ability by 78.9% bc Im in an inspired rhythm i was not in previously to make me a street ball and intramural legend! Lol

He needs to watch basketball as a fan-student and maybe put the ball down(bc of his intense practice hours) to gain a mental understanding of the game. The mental part needs to be fine tuned too.

I not saying he will play like any of these hall of famer guys but he will understand and see a common rhythm these guys play in. Controlled and decisive with anticipation and knowing what you want to do with the ball before you get it lol..!

I definitely agree with this.  I feel like he should spend the rest of the summer watching old basketball games and playing pick-up ball with non-NBA players.  Stop trying to develop individual skills and try to understand the how the game works

I would not expect to see anything different from the last game.

MKG is done, he is resting for Team USA training camp on Tuesday (which you can watch on NBATV).

No idea if Zeller, Biyombo, and Taylor play. My guess is that they only play if we advance to the finals tomorrow and that's simply because the other guys will be tired.

I think the same as well, I think we try to tank to go home to go early today, but if not there is no reason not to play our contract guys if it is going to be our last game no matter what,
