Jun 21, The Lakers came into the NBA Draft with a roster boasting an already robust crop of young talent, highlighted by the last two No. 2 overall. Jan. Jedes Jahr nachdem der NBA Champion ermittelt wurde, findet der NBA Draft statt. Es werden 60 Nachwuchstalente direkt in die NBA gehievt. Die NBA Draft ist eine Veranstaltung der Basketballliga NBA, bei der die Teams der Liga die Rechte an verfügbaren Nachwuchsspielern erwerben können.
Gehört es zu den Stärken meines Spielers, dass er den Verteidiger problemlos schlägt, während das Lesen komplexer Spielsituationen eher zu seinen Schwächen zählt etwa Russell Westbrook , dann ist ein simples Pick-and-Roll oder eine Isolation meist die richtige Wahl.
Plays, gerade komplizierte, sind niemals ein Selbstzweck. In den folgenden beiden Szenen wird man das gut erkennen können: Towns geht nach dem kassierten Score nach vorne, anstatt zu sprinten.
Tyus Jones dribbelt als Point Guard direkt den Flügel an. Er muss die Verteidigung lesen und dementsprechend entscheiden. Die klassische Lehre besagt Folgendes: Das tut Towns dann auch: Nurkic versucht sich noch am Closeout, kommt aber zu spät.
Ist das jetzt gutes Playcalling von Tom Thibodeau? Er erkennt nämlich genau die Schwachstelle der Verteidigung, da der langsame Nurkic Towns nicht am Perimeter halten kann.
Plays wie diese verraten daher einiges über den aktuellen Zustand der Liga: Warum noch komplexe Sets laufen, wenn ein Spieler wie Towns so einfach einen hochprozentigen Abschluss von der Dreierlinie bekommen kann?
He has 6 rings, 6 MVPs, the all time leading scorer. And one of the greatest pros. I strongly disagree with it being boring, the logo captures basketball and one of the most easily recognisable logos in the world to date.
Jerry west is my great uncle. Jerry West was one of the greatest basketball players in his time, along with a few others, and that logo goes to show you how strong his presence was felt across the NBA.
Tiffani, Jerry West was my hero when I was a kid. I think Jerry was a freshman when my dad was a senior.
I used to get up around 3: How very womanly of me, right? Imagine my embarrassment and reluctance to accept the truth. What I want to know is: Why is 16 setting a pick on his own teammate for Bob Cousy?
I am so confused. That is who the quote up above came from. Google Bob Cousy and you will find half a dozen pictures of him dribbling with his left in two seconds.
When he tried to dribble with his left he would quickly switch back to the right. One pic of him trying to dribble with his left hand. Bob Cousy broke his right hand in high-school which forced him to effectively play with his left for two months.
I am a tennis fan. The ATP pro tennis governing body had a similar logo for most of the s. It was every bit as fluid, vertical and elegant as this Jerry West logo.
This is a masterpiece of sports branding that should never be changed. It is a great logo but so is the Michael Jordan one. Give Mr West his props. The bent arm is too close to the edge.
It draws attention to it. I mean clearly the image is not an exact replica. I wish I could upload photos as part of my comment because in high school game the local paper captured me in a similar position on a drive to the basket.
While the image served as inspiration, the logo is really emblematic of thousands of players, not West himself. The logo is obviously Dolph Schayes and look how he lost his arm, coincidence?
They would only change the logo to avoid paying the Schayes family royalties. That would put the Schayes over.
And that would be a BIG problem. Jerry West was an outstanding player and paved the road for the players of today.
So if there had been a three point line then his points record would be way more than what he earned without it.
I find it rather peculiar that a sport continuously dominated by men of color that Jerry West was the choice for the NBA logo.
With all due respect to Mr West, he is never in the conversation amongst true basketball aficionados of greatest of all time.
Robert Cunningham, your comment shows your limited knowledge of the history of the NBA. Although its true, for the most part that the NBA has been dominated by African Americans, Jerry West is unequivocally still one of the greatest basketball players of all time.
He had one of the most deadliest jump shots the game has seen, very athletic, could score from anywhere including long distance and there were no 3 point shots back then and was a great defender.
With the exception of Kobe Bryant 20 years in the NBA , Jerry West 14 years in the NBA scored more points than any other Laker in history and is 8th on the list of the top 10 scorers in playoff history.
Hugh, I will not resort to personal attacks, they only go to show ones inability to make sound arguments on the subject at hand. I said no one speaks of him as the greatest ever.
And I felt that at his time in the game, he was the best defensive player in the game, but more importantly he was the best offensive player.
And he made his teams win. Robert, I agree that Michael Jordan is the greatest player in the history of the NBA but that does not necessarily mean that the logo should be changed.
That logo is not just about Jerry West, it exemplifies Professional Basketball in a very simplistic, yet elegant manner.
As far as the comments that Jerry West made of the issue, of course he does not mind if the logo was changed. Jordan was once asked if he could play against any player from any era, who would it be…..
I looked all over for proof of Jordan wanting to play against Jerry West. Leads me to believe it was never said. I live in Chicago and remember when the Bulls were winning championships and I do remember Jordan saying he wishes he could go against West one on one.
I loved West and his game. The comment was made many years ago so if I remembered the source, I would of given it to you.
J, Jordan would of never had that opportunity. As far no player has meant more to the NBA than Jordan, I can say the same thing about Magic Johnson and Larry Bird because they are the ones that truly brought the NBA back to life and gave players like Michael Jordan the opportunity to take it to the next level as far as ratings are concerned.
We are comparing West and Jordan. West has ONE to his name. He had the most dominant center to play the game in Wilt to boot.
Not mine at all sir. The Celtics simply had too many weapons. West was in the finals 9 times and only won once. Championship rings matter, but greatness is not measured by how many rings you have.
By the way, they changed the rules because of the Dipper. Wilt Chamberlain led to a number of rules changes in the NBA.
He was not very successful with this, but the rule was changed anyway, requiring players to release the ball from behind the line.
Wilt is in the conversation of most dominant. No one mentions Jerry West in that regard. As I said before, if the logo was going to be changed, Magic, Bird and Dr J would be a more worthy candidate because without them, Jordan would of not had the same opportunities that he had.
If Wilt had the heart and drive of Jerry West, West and Wilt would of had many more rings, and of course if Wilt would of been on the Lakers earlier, they both would have had more rings.
Who was the MVP? West is technically Mr. He got to the post season umpteen times and has one ring to show for it.
They lost eight, the first six times to the Celtics. Robert, sorry, but rings have nothing to do with an individual players greatness. Do you not understand that basketball is a team sport?
Your view of Basketball is entirely too simplistic. I also know that Gail Goodrich averaged more points than any other Laker that year.
If the Boston Celtics are playing the Miami Heat in Miami, and the Celtics, who are listed first as the visitor, are number , then the Heat will be The sequence of games continues for that day with each team in a game being given a rotation number.
These numbers are universal. That means that every sportsbook will list the Celtics and Heat with the same rotation numbers. This makes it easy to identify what team a bettor is going to wager on, especially when placing your bet at a land-based book or over the phone.
It serves as a type of shorthand for bettors and bookies alike as you refer to the number and not the team name when making your wager.
Thus, the first parts of the line read from left to right in the following manner—date and time of game, rotation numbers and the teams.
These establish the game on which you are going to bet. Everything to the right of the team names is related to the actual odds on the game.
The point spread is designed to, in essence, make it tougher for bettors to make the right choice on a game and to even out the odds.
In a big mismatch between a top team and bottom team chances are 4 of 5 times most of us can pick the outright winner. With the spread, a team either has to win by a certain number of points to payoff or it can lose by a certain number of points and still pay the bettor.
Spreads work in the following manner—the favorite team is listed with a negative number and the underdog has a positive number.
Simply put Boston is a small dog and Miami is a small favorite. More times than not a spread will be listed as a fraction or decimal.
This is to prevent a tie in the spread, which would result in a push where all bets are off and all money is returned to the bettors.
In our example if the spread has Miami at The stake, the amount of cash you have to bet when the spread is in effect, is usually the same for both clubs and looks like this: This can be translated into other wagers.
