  19. Hold up............. Wait. I just glanced at the first post and looked at the numbers. I didn't pay attention to the fact that Ryan has gotten the same amount of money in HALF the number of years that Brady has played. Thats ridiculous. The Falcons should be ashamed of themselves. Even Ryan homers are low key about this...

  22. Since Ryan has been in the league, TEN different teams have won a Superbowl. Thats not including the multiple chips won by the Patriots...
  23. I was listening to Doug Gottlieb on tv today talking about Trae Young and he said " I don't care how much offense you put up if you are the worst defender in the league. There is a reason they are losing." I have said the same thing. When your point guard doesn't play defense, its a dominoe effect for the WHOLE DEFENSE. You combine that WITH the points made in this thread and thats how you are a terrible team. The Capela signing should help but the main thing is communication and recovery defense because with Trae at the point, the defense is gonna be in continous switching and recover mode. Doug Gottlieb...
  24. The Hawks are suffering from what every young team in the NBA that can't outscore you or play elite defense is suffering from, rule changes that opened up the game and turned it into the NBA's version of Arena League Football. Up until the rule changes, it would take a good day on offense to crack the 75 point mark by the end of the third quarter. Now teams are scoring 75 points by halftime. Its a joke but something the NBA wanted because they wanted more scoring. Players are coming into the NBA after one or two years in college and are required to adjust on the fly from a more half court college game that still emphasizes defense, to a wide open NBA style where even great defense is punished because of the rule changes. I'm seeing DeAndre Hunter and Cam Reddish play excellent defense, but its not rewarded because of the PACE and transition of the game emphasizes a wide open style of offense that increases the number of possessions on offense and punished the defense: https://www.theringer.com/nba/2018/10/30/18038802/nba-defense-offensive-boom Ahead of the 2001–02 season, the league pushed back by instituting new rules to open up the floor and promote skill over strength: illegal defense was eliminated, and defensive three seconds was introduced; the time allotted to advance the ball past midcourt was also decreased, from 10 seconds to eight. Three years later, hand-checking and body-checking calls were re-emphasized to further promote freedom of movement. “The special committee on the rules anticipated when we implemented the package back in 2001 that, fundamentally, it would change the game,” said Stu Jackson, the former NBA executive vice president of basketball operations. “Collectively, all three of those [rules] allowed the game to breathe.” Offense is more dynamic these days, but Golden State defensive guru Ron Adams argues that it’s also less complex. In years past, when teams could play through the post, “your offensive menu was quite vast,” he said. “Coaches required players to learn a lot of plays.” Modern athletes have transitioned the game more into the open court, and with that comes an emphasis on pace, the word that has come to define this current leg of an ongoing revolution. Pace is defined as the number of possessions a game contains per 48 minutes (or a full regulation game’s worth) of play. The average NBA team has nearly 13 more possessions per 48 minutes than it did two decades ago. As a result, most possessions turn into fire drills for the defense. “There’s not a set script for it,” Adams said. “The court is really spaced. People are scrambling to initially slow down the ball and then go back to your assignment once things are safe. You’ve got quick-shooting teams, you’ve got guys who can really drive to the basket in transition. A lot of things are happening there.”
