People aren't gonna recognize this but Kevin Love, believe it or not, deserves a lot of credit for starting the end of the "big man in the key" trope. He was probably one of the first 3-pt shooting centers.
@giovannygarica275 2 yıl önce
Well he mostly played power forward for the timber wolves, but I think that PF’s like him and Ibaka(OKC days and series vs Spurs) began to change the role of big men as Ibaka especially proved how lethal it was to have a big man that could shoot in the playoffs. They were just so versatile and opened the paint for scorers like KD and Westbrook

obviously the most important detail is the 2018/19 season change of the shot clock reset from 24 to 14 on offensive rebounds, creating a huge difference in the amount of possessions (and of course shots) per game --- not sure why this stays under the radar and was not mentioned ---- yes there was a curve before then with the curry analytics era, but the 14 sec shot clock is what caused the real explosion

@DavidAlmodovar-eo8dg 8 aylar önce
After posting a similar comment to your comment I had to like and reply to you. Yes the main reason why we see higher scoring games is because of the shot clock resets to 14 seconds as opposed to 24 seconds after an offensive rebound. Resulting in the offensive rebounding team to put up a shot faster than back then.

It’s often forgotten by old heads who like to call the moder era “soft” that during the 60s, 70s and 80s the pace of the game and scoring could get absurd. It was only during the 90s and 2000s when the game was grounded down to a halt
@DemonKing-oi4jd 2 yıl önce

Jacking up midrange jumpshots won't win a you a series against scoring teams in today's era. That's why if MJ would play in today's era, he would need to work on his 3s coz he can't just attempt 30 midrange a game and expect to outscore his opponents without shooting 3s.
@markbeebe125 2 yıl önce
You are just about my favorite of all of the basketball TRvidrs, and with that said, I love some of these kind of detailed breakdowns and this one in particular interest me because I don't like today's style of basketball but I recognize how unique and different and revolutionary it is. With all that said I was hanging on every word as you were breaking this thing down and especially right after the Steve Nash interview, you made an interesting point that it's sort of true but completely false, let me explain what I mean. You talked about how most of us could name a lot of the high scores in the league but couldn't name the high rebounders in the league. I've always been a deep stats guy myself because I created my own unique fantasy basketball system that is unlike your traditional fantasy basketball where you play week to week. Week to week scoring eliminates head to head which is why fantasy football is so wildly popular and successful. Basketball baseball hockey etc with their week-to-week style takes all of the interest in it away. In week two week scoring it's not about who the best player is or at least the best player sometimes situationally but let's be honest, you don't bench Aaron rodgers. Even if it's a situation thing it's very rare that you bench your studs in football. But in basketball, if LeBron only has two games, you might start one of The Ball Brothers over him if they happen to have one of those five-game weeks. So years ago when me and my friends had started playing fantasy football and we saw how the format was so successful, we sat down and said to ourselves okay how can we translate that to basketball. and we came up with a format where you only play on Friday night because if you happen to go through the NBA schedule you will see that Friday nights are consistently the night of the week that has the most games. A busy week has 13 games a slow week has eight. So then we create a schedule that shows every team's schedule for every Friday night throughout the season and you draft based off of that. And you end up with a 20-week regular season and a 3 week playoff season. Because there's 23 Friday nights throughout the season every year minus All-Star weekend. So if kemba Walker plays 19 out of the 20 Friday nights during the regular season, it has two out of the three playoff games.... and Trey young only plays 10, it only has one during the playoffs.... Well you adjust accordingly and more than likely you're going to take kemba slightly ahead of Trey young even though Trey young might be the better pick as far as stats go. And then we came up with real world scoring because oddly enough fantasy basketball out there has strange formulas to do their scoring where if you get one three-pointer per night you get a bonus and if you hit a certain percentage of three pointers you get a bonus and that's not real world. Yes efficiency is rewarded in the real world but it's rewarded by you having better numbers and your team doing better as a result. So it still comes down to ultimately what a person's numbers are. Scoring rebounds assists blocks and steals. The big five. So we built in some bonuses for things like triple doubles and high percentage games and double doubles, and you would pick a team defense and it was simple because if you held your opponent under a certain point total and if you held them under certain percentages, you get the idea. the reason I'm bringing all of this up is because as a result of this you can't use traditional fantasy scoring outlets torun your league. You can use Yahoo fantasy for your draft and to manage your roster and to do 90% of your scoring but there's no way to build into your scoring setups, the bonuses that we had for team defenses and for individuals getting triple doubles and things like that. So as a result for 20 years, I did manual scoring in a spreadsheet and had to email it out to everybody the next morning on saturdays. And as a result, myself especially because I did the scoring but alsothe other guys in the league because they were always paying attention to what was happening with their own players as well as their opponents. But as a result we became much more focused on real stats and something that I noticed over the years and I used to complain about constantly to my friends, was this: the thing that you talk about, how people are paying attention to scoring but not rebounding, has always always been the case! ALLLLLWAYS. IT WOULD DRIVE ME NUTS THAT THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERED IN YOUR BOX SCORE TI ESPN AND TO YAHOO SPORTS AND PLACES LIKE THAT, WAS YOUR POINT TOTAL! Reggie Miller towards the end of his career still made the box scores every single night and by box scores what I'm talking about is the ticker on ESPN or whatever Sports network, and for example let's use ESPN again. When ESPN would flash scores let's say and not do a full breakdown of a game. Or if they were doing a brief breakdown that was later in sports center let's say and not the leading story that they gave a couple minutes to, they would always show the score up on the screen or to the side while they were showing some highlights let's say and then underneath the score they would have maybe the top player or two from each team. And their little stat line next to them. The newspapers would do the same kind of thing. they might do a little paragraph about a game and then at the bottom they would do the stat lines from the top couple guys in the game. In those circumstances the tickers the little stories in the newspaper whatever, the stat line they focused on the most and the only one they ever cared about! Only only! Was scoring. Reggie Miller at the end of his career was on the ESPN ticker and on the box score little highlight things like that almost every damn night, because he'd get 21 points or 23 points. But if you actually looked at his box score. You would see that he had 21 points one steal what assist no rebounds no blocks and he did nothing but try to get open and shoot the three that was it. He did not do a ton to help his team win other than scoring. And that's great but I'm just trying to point out that there is always been an inordinate amount of focus in scoring in basketball. Maybe it wasn't reflected as much in contracts but I don't believe that to be true either. it seemed to be that because you scored a lot you had a higher profile and the higher your profile the bigger your contracts were. it used to drive me insane as somebody that really paid attention to the actual detailed box scores and everybody's individual stats because I had to use them and know them for my league. You would see Kerry Kittles shown up next to the nets score on ESPN that night having scored 22 points, meanwhile Jason Kidd drove that offense, was not a horrible defender, and had 14 points 12 assists and 10 rebounds to go with two steals. And his 22 points for rebounds and two assists was the guy who got the Love on ESPN and as a result the higher profile which led to bigger contracts in the long run or more marketing money from endorsers. so like I said I was hanging on your every word and I'm not saying I disagree with your premise. I'm on board with everything you said except for that one thing about how scoring is way way more important now that it was back then. Maybe somehow it was rewarded differently, but it certainly was not appreciated any differently. It is always always been the primary focus when it comes to fans and the media. Just look at jordan. The guy was the greatest score of the league and it seemed just about, at least since the '60s, and from 84 until they finally broke through in 91, it was him scoring too much and the focus on his scoring that was holding them back. He needed wingman, he needed a coach to reel him in a little bit, he needed to share the ball and rely on other people to help them win. But the oohs and aahs we're all for Jordan, which translated to marketing dollars. Both for his team and himself.

one thing i think you missed on the Tony Parker comparision is that he may have shot 52% because he wasnt taking those outside shots often. id say his PPG would be closer to 24-24.5 but hey point still stands. Ray Allen took 5.7 3PA so i could just imagine the numbers he wouldve posted.

The game was played so fast when Wilt was averaging 50 points and 25 rebounds. It slowed down from the 70s-until 2016. Another factor is softer rims making it easier for the ball to go through the hoop

Facts. Kobe and T-Mac were dropping 40 when the final score was 80-90 something. Crazy.
@Terror832 2 yıl önce
At the same time they had to score that many points because their teams were very offensively deficient. Like those squads that Kobe was on in 2005-06 or T-Mac was on in 2003 were atrocious. So naturally they had to take 25+ shots a game to keep their teams afloat. Their scoring went down once they had a legit 2nd option to play with.
@Dotsetc 2 yıl önce
@@Terror832 No those teams seemed far worse because it was actually harder to get your shots off with limited spacing. Just go play ball outside and say people can only shoot the ball within the perimeter. You'll instantly notice how hard it gets, so now imagine that often 3 or 4 players in said teams not just rarely shot 3's but couldnt and people were actually allowed to handcheck guiding people away from their spots also.

Reintroduce Hand-Checking, expand the 3pt line to the boundary line to eliminate the corner 3, and call illegal screens. That would greatly balance the offense/defense discrepancy.

The production may stay the same but I think their efficiency would go up. Take Allen Iverson for example. He averaged 31.4 PPG on a terribly inefficient 39.8%. Basically 27.8 shots per game. More than anyone today. To be fair to Iverson, his early 2000s Sixers team were pretty garbage offensively so he had to night in and night out chuck like crazy just to keeps his teams somewhat competitive. So if he played today (assuming a good team with good scorers) he probably wouldn’t have to chuck so much. As Jxmyhighroller pointed out. The average player today is far better offensively than 10-20 years ago.
In his best season, Peja was an MVP candidate. Arenas in Washington had 2-3 seasons that were not inferior to what Kobe was doing those years - with the only difference that Arenas was actually scoring the game winning 3 every other day. If people do not think that Arenas and Peja would score 30 today, they are the ones that are insane.

With this scoring, you nailed it on the money. This also shows just how dominant Wilt Chamberlain was, seeing how despite the pace and scoring, players still can't catch his records. Insert; Bird, Miller, Mark Price, Joe Dumars, Chris Jackson, Robert Horry, Ray Allen, etc. and you have 30+ and a few 40+ scorers easily. Would love for you to do an average on the above mentioned Jimmy 🙂.

@keokihiga8462 2 yıl önce
Would like him to explore the part about the hand check rule more. If you can’t put your hand on the offensive player then you have to back off so they don’t dribble past you. That gives you room to raise up and shoot. The game started to evolve once that rule changed. I agree that players are better shooters nowadays but that’s a byproduct of what I said above not because they’re more skilled. If you watch Hakeem’s post move you can’t say he’s not as skilled, but instead had to match his skill with physicality. All these teams chucking up 3s has led to the demise of the low post game, which in turn makes games boring because there’s hardly a difference in style between teams.
@Tarquin2718 Yıl önce
I never understand rebounds, or rather rebounds are a given but offensive rebounds can be game winning. But the focus is on both, which makes the stats askew as players can get 8 rebounds while doing nothing, while 4 offensive rebounds is a treasure. If possible I expect offensive rebounds to increase and occasionally become a championship reason ^__^
