In Topic: Some thoughts on Stephenson

10 August 2014 - 09:25 AM

Stephenson was asked to run the point a lot in Indy & also had several players that need shots or touches to be most effective. He will he the third option at worst here & will look for his own shot more. I doubt he becomes a 25-30 point type scorer but 17-20 seem realistic

In Topic: When is the schedule released?

Sometime in August. The TV schedule is being reworked to account for FA movement(the Lebron effect)

I don't really think you can include either one of those players in that example. Vince has been playing in the league for what seems like 20 years and still getting decent contracts. Wade is still a great player. He just happens to have some knee problems but he's a starter on any team he goes too. He might not be able to single handedly win a championship any more....but when he did he played above the rim. Any player that's 32 or 33 loses a couple inches from their vert compared to when they were younger.

Wade is still a great player but he's only played 70 or more games 1 time in the last 4 years, not to mention he's looked old & slow several times in the playoffs (he's only 32). Kobe & MJ were both playing 70 plus games & still producing at a high rate simply because they added to their games(posting up) & started to pull up on some of their drives instead of going to rack with reckless abandon like they did while younger

In Topic: X factor: Zeller

I wouldn't consider Zeller the x factor but his improvement (along with MKG) could be the difference between having home court in any potential playoff series. All Cody needs to do is be a little more assertive on offense & avoid foul trouble to help this year. Ling term if he continues to develop his shooting range & add a go to post move,along with a couple of counters & he will be getting paid to play for another 10-15 years

I think Lance will be an excellent addition. His signing has revitalized the fan base's outlook on the team. His versatility we'll help in every facet. His edge will make other teams not look forward to playing us.

My only concern with Lance is his lack of explosiveness offensively. Once he gets his momentum going he's tough to stop. If he wants to be that max player though, he's got to be able to play above the rim more. For a guy who's 6'5/6'6 he puts up a lot of layups. He has a great frame, and if he gets into the weight room and works on that explosion then he'll be a top 5 player in the league.

I love what he brings to the table now and that's his only glaring weakness that I see.

not trying to dunk every time he takes it to the rack might prolong his career as a top notch contributor. There is a ling list of guys who start to break down after 30 because they relied to much on athletic ability ( see D Wade& Vince Carter)
