And turnovers (+possessions) and offensive rebounds (-possessions)
IIRC, Spo started out as a video coordinator or something like that. You'd tend to laugh at that, but it means the guy has seen a LOT of game film. Spo is a lot smarter than many people think. Sure, his team is STAAAAACKED with talent, but he makes it all work. Miami 3-peat is coming, folks.
If so, it will be a lot like Jordan's 3rd of both his repeats: broken down team (and old for the 2nd one) being dragged to the title by the greatest. I don't think he'll get there though because the competition is better than Jordan faced those 2 years.
Yeah...tbh, I wouldn't mind a Pacers-Spurs Finals...two old ABA teams slugging it out.
Hope you're right about the 3-peat coming, but they held on to win the 2nd by the slimmest of margins (the desperation three by Ray Allen at the buzzer to stay alive).
I find it fascinating to consider how different some players and teams would be viewed if the razor thin margins that often accompany championships had tilted the other way.
Obviously, you are interested in looking at a player's turnovers, rebounds, and steals when analyzing that player's total contribution to a game, but there is something particularly misleading to me about these "30 points on only 7 shots!" claims that you sometimes see.
Not rebounds and steals, just possessions. A shot is a possession unless you get the offensive rebound, then the net is 0. It's possible to score 30 points on zero possessions if you're always cleaning up your teammates' misses. You use a possession every time you do something that causes the ball to go to the other team.
