      A PLclipr posting the Same Style of Video multiple times? LOL. Ahhh... And Dumb Ass PLclip PAYS THEM again and Again.
      Saw a video earlier of a YTber did the same video mentioning TESLA and in those 6 SAME Videos posted ever 2 months... He got 4m views on each... Just keep doing it until PLclip can figure it out keeps stealing that money!!
      I do like JxmyHughrollers videos though... Always pretty good. 👍🏼
      Can't wait for the video he does when he says how Lebron's Kid is only in the NBA because of LeBron.
      At that point LeBron should just Purchase an NBA NEW Team (in Seattle) and have BOTH his Boys on it...and surround THEM with 'Super Teamates'
      What you don't think THAT is gonna happen? Look out Seattle in 2029-2030.
      SuperSonics= SuperTeam.

    When I watched this video, I remembered how legendary the 2015-2016 season was.
    - Kobe's retirement and last game 60 points
    - GSW 73-9
    - Maybe the best dunk contest ever
    - Oklahoma's 3-1 loss in conference finals and KD had his first poor playoff performance While westbrooke had his first good playoff performance (This serie changed the nba because Kd went to golden state after that)
    - Game 6 Klay
    - Stephen curry Unanimous MVP
    - and of course Cavs comeback from 3-1 (first time in the finals history) and lebron's most meaningful championship and blok

Good stop it, you act like draymond got suspened because what happened in game 4, but he only got a technical foul, but he reach 7 technical in a season so there was automatic suspension, if he did not play dirty(like kicking steven Steven Adams's nuts) in previous series he would not have been suspened

      Well, to disagree with you respectfully, 90's players could shoot. They just weren't allowed to, given the green light like todays players have. Yeah they went inside first to the post, but they could shoot the lights out if given the chance. Just to name a few, Dan Marlee, Robert Horry, Steve Kerr, Jim Paxton, Michael Jordan, Reggie Miller, Steve Smith, just to name a few.

      Actually physical play hard fouling but not flagrant fouls are part of the game even today. Just look at the playoffs and the impact that has on scoring. It wears you out and mental toughness, skill and quickness has to take over. I believe 90s players were already skilled but being held back by this sort of play style. Watching 80s basketball players couldnt shoot and only guarded the paint. The style was to feed the low post and so everyone sagged off of the passer who today would easily take and make that shot.

      This is a good video. It's good to see offensive plays that were created in the beginning of the NBA still being used today in the NBA. But when it comes to sports I like defense, which probably makes me odd man out 😎. Because a good defense has to be physical on some level to be good.

    The main reason why high level players are teaming up so much in the past 10 years is because of 'ring culture'. If we really want to prevent superteams from forming then the media and fans need to stop obsessing over rings and judging players abilities and talents by how many rings they have.
    The NBA media, fans and players are obsessed with legacies and all time rankings, much more so than any other sport. No matter how good a particular player is, if they don't have at least one ring by the time they retire, their legacies are stained. Almost like they're considered busts. Part of this started with LeBron who has had by far the most pressure to deliver of any player in the history of the NBA, starting from when he was a junior in high school. The NBA media has followed his entire career with the expectation that he would be the next MJ or GOAT candidate and has been obsessed with his 'legacy' ever since 2002. Because of that, he felt he needed to maximize his talent and live up to expectations and win as many rings as possible. Now it has spread to nearly every superstar of the past 10 years. They all feel pressure to win rings because without a ring, NBA fans and media will call you a failure, or not clutch, or not a winner.
    Ring culture is toxic to NBA. Damian Lillard and Bradley Beal have decided to tough it out with the teams they were drafted by instead of forcing trades to other teams with superstars so they can win rings. If they retire without winning any titles they will be vilified for not having any rings and not caring about winning. LeBron/KD/Harden change teams often because they want rings to boost their legacies, and they are vilified as well for chasing rings.
    Stop judging players by how many rings they have and the superteams will stop.

      @King Jaffe this makes me wonder if there have been any sociology formal or edutainment studies on what sports have the worst fans and why. I think it would depend on how you categorize worse like in the US for example I imagine most NASCAR fans are going to be more racist than NBA fans, but I would be more interested in the toxicity related to the sports themselves rather than fairly surface level general stuff like this.

      Probably an unpopular opinion, but whenever I hear people talk about the greatness of Shaq it generally comes down to his size and his strength, which allowed him to operate with impunity in the low post. After all, he was literally one of the heaviest men to ever play in the NBA. Meanwhile, he had poor work ethic, infamously poor shooting and his speed faded over the years along with his fitness level.
      Would he be dominant in today's NBA? Well, he'd certainly get his share of post lay-ups and he'd get plenty of rebounds, but that's only if he could keep up with the rate of play. Most plays would be over before Shaq was in position.... and let's not pretend he'd be a) taking many midrange or outside shots or b) defending them. Young Shaq? Sure, he could probably stay in and contribute. Shaq from the mid-2000s? Ummm.... they'd be giving him oxygen on the sidelines between plays.

    I’ve always said the same about the Giannis-Robinson comp. Robinson was very fast and athletic and great on the break. If they’d given him the green light to develop and use skills like ball handling and 3 point shooting, I have no doubt he’d be what Giannis is today. Probably a better shooter too. Only thing he lacked is the meanness/mental toughness Giannis has.

  • Feynman Schwinger E_MC2
    Feynman Schwinger E_MC2 7 miesięcy temu +160

    Hot Take: We don't emphasize Turnovers enough when discussing players legacies. A turnover is the 2nd worst play in basketball after allowing your opponent to score with bad defense.
    Turnovers are worse than missed shots because at least missed shots provide offensive rebound and 2nd-shot opportunities. A turnover has no redeeming value.
    2nd Hot Take: Why don't we talk about how the Eastern Conference has been, by a significant margin, far inferior to the Western Conference since MJ retired?
    (Go look up the amount of 50 Win Teams the West has produced since MJ retired compared to the East, not even close).

    • Khai Tran Ngoc
      Khai Tran Ngoc 6 miesięcy temu +1

      I'll do a quick gander over contenders around the time of Jordan's retirement and see what they have done wrong.
      Heat: Probably the only team that stayed as the Eastern flagship franchise, though they did age out a bit during Zo+Hardaway's latter years, and did not utilize the full potential of late 00s Wade, but still, 3 champs and regular stars joining, great going.
      Bulls: Jerry Krause fucked the team up, then they have hope until Derrick Rose's knees blew up
      Magic: They traded Shaq to Lakers, then Grant Hill was injured thus making TMac their lone star, then Howard almost had it for them but then he left and Magic ain't winning more
      Pacers: Malice at the Palace.
      Knicks: Just, James Dolan.
      76ers: Iverson and Brown spent half the time arguing, and AI was mad inefficient
      Bucks:Traded away Ray Allen for a reduced Gary Payton in 2003. (why)
      Nets: Kidd needs help, and Vince ain't it.
      Early 00's Celtics: Trading Joe Johnson, and Billups away, really?
      Pistons: Had something going in the mid-2000s, coulda have been sth, but Billups for Iverson killed the dream
      00s Cavaliers: STOP SURROUNDING LEBRON WITH EITHER HAS BEEN OR NO NAMES!
      But the West also did things right
      Jazz: Actually paying Carlos Boozer against the Cavs
      Lakers: Stealing Shaq (from Magic), and Kobe (from Nets, Celtics, and Hornets (whom Jerry West traded the pick).
      Spurs: Just Pop and Duncan, they are who they are
      Blazers: Whitsitt had a stacked team, containing former Bulls Pippen and former Bullets Rasheed Wallace
      Kings: Stealing Chris Webber from the Bullets for an over-the-hill Mitch Richmond
      Mavs: Stealing Dirk Nowitzki from the Bucks in a trade.
      Timberwolves: Just, draft Garnett innit.
      Suns: Building 7SOL with Mike D'Antoni and Steve Nash.
      Nuggets: Drafting Melo
      With a focus on the 2000s, it can be seen that the GMs out East are just a bit shit.

      To your first Hot Take. Turnovers come from players who pass a lot, they often don't mean that you're bad they just mean you pass a lot. Which emphasizes that you are a team player, which is good in a team sport. But we can look down on players with a bad Ast/Tov ratio like Moses Malone, Dwight Howard, Kevin Willis.
      2nd Hot Take: We always talk about that, when ever we talk about the Goat, people always come up how LeBron played in a weak eastern confrence.

      @Kaleb Stewart Yeah, it is bad when a team trades a player and don't let the player know they're shopping him and worst sometimes tell the player they're not going to trade him then does so, but a player of KD's caliber can demand a "no trade clause" in his contract that would keep a team from doing that.

      I agree, players should not be penalized for teaming up to win championships because all organizations are not created equally. Some organizations don't know how to win championships. Having stated that I must push back on players requesting trades in the middle of contract limits. Players should play contracts out them make moves. What LeBron did going from Cleveland to Miami is not What AD did leaving New Orleans going to Los Angeles. LeBron left after contract expired AD demanded trade in the middle of contract term.

      This is one of the worst takes EVER. sheed was only good at defense, and he would just kind of punch the opposite player to draw them a foul and hack them. refs didn't target him, only very rarely. He deserved those techs for nearly killing the opposite player and he was never, ever a good offensive player. In my opinion, he is just a good nba player who was an old vet.

    Hot take: Jrue Holiday is the most underrated point guard.
    I'd rather choose him over most point guards in the league. Becuase after he showcased his superb defensive prowess in the 2021 Finals, basketball iq, and physicality, I could say that he's more reliable than CP3 and Trae, especially in the playoffs. Unlike other point guards that drop 30 a game, he's more of getting everyone in his team involved in the game and knows when to step up when the team needs to score. He could have played a better match up against Steph if the Bucks played the 2022 Finals.

    Hot take: It feels like players are out with injuries for longer then in any of the previous generations.

Injuries have always been a part of every sport since the dawn if time but it really feels like the players are just milking it now.

    What baffles me more about the disrespect old timers like Oakley show to Giannis is that he’s actually playing old school basketball. Taking it to the rim hard rather than being flashy and cute, absorbing and dealing back physical punishment, insane commitment to both ends of the floor, power dunks, you name it.
    IIf you add the crazy progress he’s made since his first couple of seasons, his devotion to the city that drafted him, the fact that all his teammates love him (there’s 4-5 guys right now with him in his holidays to Greece, Pat, Carter, Nwora etc) and again, his sheer physical dominance it’s really a mystery how you can sit there with a straight face and publicly claim he’d be a role player back in the day.
    Go figure.

    Hot Take:
    The NBA needs to get rid of the zero (gather) step. Playing in the most talented league in the world, it should be a bit more difficult to score. The NBA rule book shouldn’t be altered to create a more offensively centered game. If the coaches want to focus more on offense that is fine but the NBA rules shouldn’t be changed to favor offense. It shows the beauty of the game buy being able to score with 2 hands in your face. Compared to taking 4 steps backwards and shooting a 3.

      Heart is in the right place but the solution isn't it. Asking refs to call more to change defense isn't the way. They can't even handle what they have to do now. Guys are so fast and crazy now that dudes are straight double dribbling sometimes because refs can't follow the action in real time with confidence.
      Get rid of the corner 3. That will let defenders be closer to the rim and closer to help position instead of stretched out all over the place. That will get those hands in those faces.

    great work as always.
    few takes from this video:
    1- fans have too much power and should be limited. What I mean is, it would be nice to see some what of a skill and ability to hold a card to critic a NBA players. I've always believed in you have to earn to be a sports fans; just because if you pay doesn't give you the right. So pick your fans like some companies pick their customers or partners to show quality not just quantity.
    2- the NBA talent has never been better. the talent is so good, you can literally see the insecurity from the older generation that no way there is something better than we were when we player in our prime. it's a common human factor and we see it in all of the sports. Those from the older generation who recognize today's talent and give them the credit they've earned, good on them and we should see more and more of it.
    3- build a team through draft, develop and smart/necessary additions over super teams any day. Glad warriors got what they worked for and not payed for. Also, Celtics; great organization who will get to the similar heights as the GSW if they continue to stick with "build a team through draft, develop and smart/necessary additions" approach

You gotta be a high-level 2 way player to be top 10. Top 15 ok, but top 10 is really pushing it

    Please make more of these. I think Charles Oakley has early-stage dementia. Giannis is stronger and quicker than as any player of that era with the exception of Shaq in strength (he was also unbelievably quick) and probably as you said similar to the Admirial. That would have been a great match up to see. Every once in a while, I see posts that state that Larry Bird would have been a below average shooter in this era. Hard to imagine a 50, 40, 90 player would be a bad shooter and they did not even practice the 3 point shot. Who knows but perhaps he would have been a Steph Curry like talent if the game had been different. I have also seen people commenting that Jokic would have been a sub par center in the physical game of the 80s. Really, a guy that can pass and shoot like he can, and listening to Draymond Green, not exactly a weak player himself, saying that Jokic is not soft at all. I wish I could find for you that Jokic comment.

      @ThePhenom10805 Seriously man, get over yourself. Get on basketball Reference and look at "1993-94 NBA Leaders" and scroll through a few years up through 96. Kemp is in the top 10 in the big man stats and the advanced stats. I love that he ranks much higher on offensive boards than defensive: a center can get those defensive boards but Kemp would be fighting in there on the offensive glass. I even remember Bill Walton nearly embarrassing himself with how much he gushed over Kemp in the 96 Finals. And, as Jimmy noted, Kemp outperformed Jordan in key advanced stats. Now do I think Kemp was better than Jordan? Of course not. But he was a freakin animal.
      The tragedy of Kemp was his immaturity. Couldn't play college ball because he was such a disaster. Blew up a great team and his own career because of jealousy. The Seattle press took to calling him "the man-child" towards the end. And so yeah, the criticisms are very well deserved. But not his game. Karl was a famously difficult coach. Imagine what Kemp would have been under a coach who helped his guys grow up.

    • David
      David 7 miesięcy temu

      @ThePhenom10805 He was in the top ten in multiple big man stats for several years. Usually the shortest guy on the blocks list. Of course he wasn't Mutombo or Olajuwon, all time great shot-blockers (and both over 7'). He also had high steals stats and rebounding. Because he was quicker than almost all these guys, he could stay in front of his man. The main knock on him was he wasn't that heavy. But that's why he played the 4 and not the 5. And almost everybody else on those lists are 5s, and most couldn't steal like Kemp did.
      Now, he had a lot of flaws, most of which were mental. He fouled a lot. He derailed a contender because he was whining about a backup center making more money than he did. (Very stupid, because he would have soon been a top tier salary as well). But the original point was that it would be fun as well to watch Giannis and the quickest/sproingiest big man in the league go one on one.
      Did I mention he was one of the best two guys on the team that made it through a brutal Western conference to take two games off :"the best team ever"? I don't know what the hell is wrong with you, but it sure as hell was not Detlef who carried that team to the Finals. The Sonics had two great players: Payton and Kemp. And had Kemp not self destructed he was a shoe-in HoFer and would have had a good shot at a ring.

    If Giannis played in the NBA in the 80's or 90's, he definitely would have been coached differently, and his skill sets likely would have been different. He would have played primarily in the post. But also he would have been guarded primarly by post players who actually would match if not outweighed him. I'm sure he would have been good, but I suspect he wouldn't have stood out as much as he does now.

    "Defense wins championships."
    And every time it wins, they change the rules to kill it.
    1999 season: Spurs and 8-seed Knicks make it to Finals via great defense.
    RULE CHANGE: Kill hand-checking. "In the backcourt, there is no contact with hands and forearms by defenders. In the frontcourt, there is no contact with hands and forearms by defenders except below the free throw line extended in which case the defender may only use his forearm."
    Two years later, further restrictions: "No contact with either hands or forearms by defenders except in the frontcourt below the free throw line extended in which case the defender may use his forearm only."
    "Neither the offensive player nor the defender will be allowed to dislodge or displace a player who has legally obtained a position."
    "Defender may not use his forearm, shoulder, hip or hand to reroute or hold-up an offensive player going from point A to Point B or one who is attempting to come around a legal screen set by another offensive player."
    "Slowing or impeding the progress of the screener by grabbing, clutching, holding “chucking” or “wrapping up” is prohibited."
    "On the weakside, defenders must remain on the weakside outside the paint unless (i) they are double-teaming the ball, (ii) picking up a free cutter or (iii) closely guarding an offensive player."
    2002, the permanent death of zone defense: "A new defensive three-second rule will prohibit a defensive player from remaining in the lane for more than three consecutive seconds without closely guarding an offensive player."
    Imagine if a hockey goalie occasionally had to leave his net WIDE OPEN for anyone to freely shoot into, because staying in the crease caused a penalty.
    That's defensive three-seconds.
    2004 Pistons, maybe the best defense ever.
    RULE CHANGE, 04-05 season: "New rules were introduced to curtail hand-checking, clarify blocking fouls and call defensive three seconds to open up the game."
    And now the game is just threes and layups, because you can't touch anyone.
    "The truth is, it makes the game [where] players have to be more skillful. Nowadays, literally anybody can get out there and get to the basket and you can't touch anybody. Back then, if guys put their hands on you, you had to have the skill to be able to go both ways, change direction, post up, you had to have a mid-range game because you didn't want to go all the way to the basket because you would get knocked ass over tea kettle. So I think playing the game back then required MUCH MORE SKILL."

    Horace Grant, Shawn Kemp, Dale Davis, Otis Thorpe, Dennis Rodman and Clifford Robinson were intense on defense. Sometimes going physical isn't just to stop a play, it's to put out a warning that if you're going to disrespect a rim protector on defense, you're going to have to pay a toll every time. Giannis is a great player, but man, if some of these names can give _SHAQ_ the business, of all people, you best know that they'll be able to keep Giannis at least honest. Oh, and funny that you don't mention Derrick Coleman that much here, since he's probably the closest to a prototype Giannis among all those on this list.

    As a guy who grew up watching basketball in the sixties, the players weren't more physical than today, the rules just allowed them to get away with being more physical, which the rules don't allow today. Also, coming up through the years were centers who rarely had a 3 point shot . Today's game overall is far more exciting to watch and the players overall have more skills!!!

    My hot take: Jahlil Okafor is a really good center. Philly's "Trust The Process" ruined him. When he got minutes in NOLA he was good. When he got minutes in Philly, he was good. He's not bad, nobody wants to give him a shot.Yes, he plays in the wrong era, but we still see players post up a lot per game(Jokic, Embiid) and it works. I'm not saying Okafor would be as effective as those two, but he deserves a spot on an NBA roster at least

    I honestly feel like the MVP award should be counted to playoff performance(excluding NBA finals) I know that it's just for the regular season, but think about it, the Most VALUABLE Player has to show up for both the regular season and the playoffs, it's pretty upsetting when you see a MVP look like a monster during the regular season, but choke during the playoffs and the runner-up for the MVP is beasting, just my opinion though.

    Here's what needs to be considered with regard to comparing modern NBA players to times past.
    1. Defense - No hand checking and a lot less physical. Are their offensive skills really tested like in times past?
    2. Fighting - Players mouths move a lot more because the penalties for fighting are a lot heavier than in times past.
    3. Carrying - Players used to have to know how to dribble. Carrying allows players to change direction and speed a lot quicker which makes them more difficult to defend especially when the defense is no longer allowed to hand check.
    Conclusion: Modern NBA players are Divas compared to times past.

    As a Cavs fan, the 2016 finals were so incredibly captivating. I got to be in the CLE Q when we won game 7. I'll never have a better cultural/sports moment and I'm totally fine with that.

    Actually being a bit of an 'old head' myself (played NCAA in the 1980s) I think today's NBA is INSANELY skilled and talented. The nutrition, the workout regimen, the way players can and do take far better care of themselves and the 'time management' so they don't just wear down so quickly means that the top 3 in each position would, with a few exceptions, been the top 3 in any year prior to 2000. I mean seriously... other than Magic, Bird, Dr. J, and Jordan (all of whom took pretty good care of their bodies from most accounts) I just can't see a player from that era who would be a top 3 in their position today. Kiki Vandeweghe was one of the great power forwards of his era in his early career. In 1983 he was a 30, 5, 3 guy who made the NBA All-Star team and helped lead the Nuggets to the playoffs. At 6'8" with good hands, decent athleticism, and very solid footwork he was a star. Honestly, would he REALLY start in front of Aaron Gordon today? Probably not honestly. He didn't have Gordon's size, athleticism, wasn't a better outside shooter, and wasn't as solid a perimeter defender. Aaron's good. A very solid player who would start for a lot of other NBA teams, but he didn't even get a sniff at the All-Star team. Nuff said.

    That Giannis take is already a living meme pretty much.
    Also yeah while the final score for each game of 2016 looks huge, in Game 5, it was wire to wire in the first half and didnt get blown open till the end. Game 6 started off a blowout but there was a near fourth quarter comeback that was derailed by a couple insane LeBron plays and a few bad calls by the refs.

      Well that was actually the real reason KD joined GS.. Watch Draymond's interview in JJ's podcast about what really happened during KD's recruitment. He literally said there "he and KD knows what's up" and "how to make it right" and other cryptic statements, as they had a conversation of what happened in that finals, right after game 7 when Dray was still in the locker room.
      And it perfectly makes sense.. as GS and OKC would be killing each other every year trying to get past the other, and after all that they would still have to face the final boss- LeFraud and his evil refs.

      That Draymond suspension was suspect though, as no calls were actually made during the play. Only hours after the game after Bron lobbied for his suspension was he magically given a flagrant thus the suspension.. Now given how physical the whole series was, watch all the fouls Steph got in game 6, where he got 2 calls right away in the 1st quarter before eventually fouling out. Those calls were also suspect and soft asf. Watch how the Cavs try to deny the ball to Steph and how physical they were in defending him, aside from trying to "bump" him every chance they get. And you compare those soft a** fouls. You can try to re-watch as videos for both were uploaded here somewhere.

    It seems to me that superstar teams have been formed more often because there are somehow much more superstars nowadays and that's not only because of the higher skill players but also because NBA is at its popularity peak. It doesn't look like it's going to slow down either, so expect much more "superstars" in the coming years.

His highlights are amazing and if anyone brings him up in a conversation all they talk about is his dunking, when really he is an amazing finisher around the rim and can shoot the 3 ball pretty well. He could have very well have been on the NBA top 75 list.

    My theory is under Stern the NBA wanted to have a superstar on every team, under Silver they want to make match ups the people want(ed) but are not panning out for the most part, as there are maybe too much ego's flying around. Everyone can't have the ball at the same time... so no one is playing true team basketball. This is why Toronto was able catch that quick title in 2019, they played a different game than everyone that year and only had one superstar to get the ball to and everyone else would contributes as best they can.

His game is literally everything I love. Literally he is the perfect player for my type of fandom yet I cant because people overrate this man and act like he didnt get drafted in a great situation with Klay and Dray and a smart organization. We just act like Dray isn't playing point guard out there and like Klay isn't the 2nd greatest shooter ever. You get my point.

    If Game 7 of the 2016 wasn’t such an all time classic, nobody and I mean nobody is saying that is the greatest finals of all time. Yes the narratives are amazing but from a tension standpoint if all 7 games were blowouts that’s the most disappointing outcome to a heavily anticipated finals duel you can possibly have. But because that one single game actually gave us what was advertised people just forget that from a casual fan standpoint none of the rest of the games had any tension down the wire. So many other finals have had similarly fantastic storylines and actually compelling competitive games down the stretch more than just one time. 1969, 1984, 1993, 1997, 2013, all of these were more entertaining series from a competitive aspect than the 2016 series was. If you were not actively a Lebron fan or Curry fan there was no incentive to watch any game in most of the fourth quarter time all series until Game 7.
    Think about this year’s playoffs. Game 7 of the Celtics v Miami series was arguably the most tense exciting and important game all postseason. But no sane person is calling than an all time great playoff series because the first 6 games were near constant blowouts. One amazing game does not a GOAT series make. It helps a lot for sure. But if anyone tells me that 2016 was a better series than the 2013 Finals to watch from a competitive and entertainment perspective, I’m going to assume you did not actually watch that 2013 series. Two GOAT candidates, Lebron’s legacy on the line, an epic last second wild shot to clinch game 1, the greatest finals game ever in Game 6 with the single highest pressure shot ever made in nba history at the end, like they already had the ropes out it was looking so done, then clutch plays by Chris Bosh to force a Game 7 where Lebron hits the finals clinching shot with 40 seconds left.
    I know that 3-1 is a bigger comeback overall than 3-2 but those two wins were both so incredibly difficult to come by, it was arguably just as impressive.
