He’s a very good offensive player who shows zero interest (or ability) in defending anyone. Luckily for him it’s the perfect spot where Bam, Jimmy, and the coaching staff can help cover that up.

I don't disagree, but thats hardly unique to him.  A LOT of 2nd/3rd tier level "stars" like that, unfortunately.  But thats part of the reason I said he's a great fit in Miami, cause of what you alluded to.

Him and Poole are one and the same.

Now that I disagree with, to some extent.  Defensively, sure, but I think Herro is a more complete player.

Career splits..

Herro: 18/5/4 on 45/39/88 shooting

Poole: 16/3/3  on 42/33/88 shooting

But the difference for me. 

Number of games in 2022-2023 with under 40% shooting on more than 15 attempts?

Herro: 9

Poole: 24, already 4 this season.

Poole is far more likely to shoot you out of a game.  If you go more than 10 or 12, it gets WAY worse for Poole.  Some of it is obviously coaching, but I think Herro has a better sense of playing within the game and not chucking than Poole does.

I think Poole has hit his ceiling, I think Herro still has a bit more ceiling.  Whats funny is I think Poole's natural ceiling is higher due to his speed and athleticism, but he doesn't show a lot of interest in being more than Nick Young 2.0, especially now that he's on a bad team.

LOL!  Meanwhile Maxey has 21pts, on 9-11 shooting,with 7 mins left in the 2Q.  Talk about addition by subtraction.  I like guys with zoomability.  :)

I don't think it was "dirty" per se, I just think it was hilariously random.  Like Draymond saw the scuffle as his chance to assert dominance over Gobert.  If he laid him out or looked to hurt him in any way, thats dirty.  It was a headlock for gods sake.  It was dumb and he deserved to be tossed and fined, but im not clutchin pearls.

Meanwhile, the Clippers are already doing Clippers stuff.  Down 3 with 15 seconds, plenty of time in the modern NBA to even get a quick 2 and foul, much less draw up a great play for 3.  Actually have momentum after Leonard wakes up from sleepwalking all game to get a steal and cut it to one.  In-bound, 2 guys standing in the corner, half baked maneuvering leads to a hand off to Paul George, tightly guarded, and he basically jab steps and isos before jacking up a contested 3 that sticks at the rim for a jump ball at center court.  L..O...L

Steve is a great coach. I'd love to have him on my bench. But, he doesn't strike me as a particularly bright guy.

Draymond has issues. Rodman had issues. His emotions have served him well on the whole but you have to put up with the BS. It was bush league stuff, as always, and it will cost him money and games as it should.

Steve Kerr is not a "particularly bright guy" might be one of the oddest things I have read here in awhile. It pretty much goes against everything I have heard about him.

He's just defending his guy. That's what coaches do.

You're reading way to much into a single comment. I said he is great. I said I want him as my team's coach. I was a season ticket holder in the Jordan years and love Steve.

A basketball coach not being a generally bright guy is not close to calling him dumb. And it is not that unusual for a high profile coach in most sports. (Ditka, Izzo, etc.)

Yeah I'm gonna trend more towards general coach speak as opposed to thinking the grandson of a prominent biochemisty, the son of a respected academic and university professor, and a guy who was actively involved in a bunch of different things off the court, including writing columns and ownership groups, before becoming a coach...isn't too bright.  Comparing him to Ditka or a guy like Izzo (who has spent his entire life in a Michigan bubble) is wild.

Don't think you can call Kerr anything of the dumb sort

But hes clearly a sh itbag.

I just saw the highlights. Forget constantly putting up with Draymond being a danger to others and overall trash can person but his lies of what happened in a video we all have eyes and can see, was something a psycho would do.

He tried to act like Klay was a victim and Draymond was the hero.

Klay started the whole thing there is literal video showing it. And he made up out of thin air that Rudy was the first choker and Draymond went full superman to save the day. Lunatic.

I couldn't agree more.  And Green's act has been wearing thinner and thinner.  I've said for years I hope someone like Steven Adams levels him.
