can any of our bigs pick and roll? all they seem to be able to do is pick and pop or pick and be biyombo.
not an excuse, just needs thinking about. the pick and rolls for this team are not very good (except when mullens is on fire maybe).
Seriously tho...Felton was bashed for not being able to run the P&R until he left here and got hooked up with Amare. There is some semblence that can be run regardless tho and I'm perfectly fine with him pushing to improve all aspects.
Just like with PGs getting assists it's not all dependent on him (nor is he always the most important guy in the play). There's position/movement of the guy setting the pick/rolling just like the guy setting the pick to get that shooter free for that easy assist.
I question just how far he can go with our current coaching staff, but that's beside the point.
My main point (other than to pull a few chains...cuz that's what I do) was just to acknowledge the growth Kemba is experiencing in what legitimately was the biggest knock against him.
So show the man some love!!

until? you mean like if he gets a whole NBA season under his belt maybe? Dude we haven't even crossed the half way point of a regular NBA season yet. I never said he was the best point guard in the NBA or even that he doesn't still need to work on his game (who doesn't) . Just that he is absolutely a PG, he is the future of this team, and he's better than DJ at pretty much everything after under 40 NBA games.
The pick and roll is simple. He has the tools. Suggesting that he will never learn it is silly.
Into the crevasse!

If a big man sets a shitty screen, the entire p&r is ruined.
If a big man sets a good screen, it's almost impossible to stop.
Perhaps it's not an either/or situation?
Anyway, I say trade Kemba. Trade DJ. If anybody else looks like they might can play pg, trade them too.
I just want five guys who block every shot so that we can win games with hockey scores.
SOMEONE will pay for THIS!
