Default Re: GSW is #1 due to the best 3-pt shooters - don't act like they're the best ballplayers

Three's have been a part of the game, for what, 40 years now?

Time to get over it.

don't respect anyone that wouldn't make the NBA without the 3-point line.. curry was barely a D1 player until threes got popular


you're having a meltdown because the Warriors are showing off team basketball at its best ever.

you said before they are only making "stand still" threes, but fact is klay and curry work harder to get open off ball than anybody perhaps to ever play the game.

Of course Jordans shots werent as open he mostly operated in a 15-20 foot radius around the rim. Dingo and klay double that defensive coverage zone and simultaneously run routes that leave the defense scrambled.

Dominance without the ball... blows your mind mate.

It can't be the only thing that drives winning though, and that's what happened - the smartest guy in basketball agrees with me, not you:








Today's game is literally a 3-pt contest.. that..... isn't..... basketball

It's stand-still, open threes mate... So not basketball

Facts..

Who cares how hard they work to get open - all scorers work hard to get open - Reggie Miller busted his ass to get open, mj too - so who cares - getting open is a miniscule aspect of the game

2-pointers are scored in infinite ways, while 3-pointers are much more limited - mostly stand-still open shots in a designated area of the floor..

3-point contests aren't basketball no matter how much you pretend that they are

But I guess people will always like and defend the cute kid... ...

Threes are played-out to knowledgeable fans... . Even his wife is tired if his act

youre embarrasing yourself bro...

It'd be like saying julian edelman catches stand still open passes from tom brady... or randy moss used to catch stand still bombs.

Curry is pretty much the best ball player.

Most three-point attempts are stand-still jumpers... Catch-and-shoots... Facts...

I can clutter the thread with NBA.com screenshots to prove this, but I shouldn't have to

No they arent...

Rockets role players shoot stand still open 3s... pj tucker, trevor ariza, gerald green etc. sitting waiting around for a pass.

Klay and Curry very very frequently... like 95% of the time are catching and shooting on the move.

You have nooo idea what youre talking about.

Rockets shot more 3ís made more 3ís, at better efficency than GoldenState but STILL LOST!!


Rockets 259 attempts on 36.7% = 95 Total

Warriors 199 attempts on 34.7% = 69 Total



You are just wrong.
