    Compared to a few years ago bigs weren’t even remotely expected to shoot jump shots and now we have 3 big MVP finalists that can handle the ball well and pull up from range, the game really is evolving. Love the videos Jxmy!

      @Matt Cook they said in practice Hakeem would do interview’s while hitting 50 3’s in a row. He could have hit them, by but back then it was about hitting higher percentage shot’s, and he was money wherever he was…until Barkley got on the team.

      @shaft9000 guys like Jimmy often make arguments suggesting that players of the past won’t be able to adjust to the present. But there are current players that adjusted to the 3pt era such as Lebron and Durant! They both started their prime before 2014ish when 3’s began to rain down like crazy. Look how they adjusted. From their early years to the the past 8 years as 3’s sky rocketed. You can even see it in players like Ray Allen who started in the 90’s and ended a little after 2010. By the end, despite playing fewer min minutes and taking maybe half the shots he did in 90’s seasons, he was taking more 3’s and shooting very well. As 3’s became more important throughout his career, he increased his shots form 3 even as he aged. Jerry West would likely be a one of the best 3 shooters today if he was allowed to adjust to the game. I’ve seen many of his games on YT and he was just as good as Durant from the long two - 16ft shot.

      @ResistExist Jimmy is okay for talking about some random current nba stuff. I follow 3 others that I think are more insightful but less “entertainment”. Thinking basketball, Clayton, and Jonny Arnett. Clayton and Arnett talk a lot of history and Clayton does some wonderful positive videos of players of the past, recently on DR J. Not much opinion but more like poetry though he also does opinion. Arnett is mostly opinion and despite him being a huge Kobe and Lakers fan, he’s not shy to admit Jordan is the goat or give respect to much older players. Thinking Basketball is pure analytics and I learn a lot.

      @Marv Aff Ask yourself 2 Qs: How well would players from the 60s-90s be able to adjust if time-machined to our era? ...then consider the same Q in reverse.
      Jimmy's biased in saying that players are more skilled today WITHOUT conveying how rules have changed to make our guys able to do so much more on the court. It happened over a few decades in small increments, and the difference over time became staggering - to the point where the game was totally unbalanced a few seasons ago, and is till pretty goofy by and large.

    Considering that these three men are all international players, I hypothesize that the international talent pool is at the tipping point of matching the US. These guys, along with Doncic and many others are just the first wave of phenomenal players coming from overseas that show that the game has grown to the point that it is not the “big man being back”. The dominant big man highlighted in Jimmy’s video is actually the international player who has the measurables to have NBA draft priority. With today’s improved player development and talent identification more players at every position will challenge the US players in the NBA and in international competition like last years Olympic tournament. This is a wonderful video highlighting some of the best international prospects who have developed into MVP candidates/laureates, and soon we will recognize that these men were not the shepherds of a resurgence of the post playmaker but rather the inception of the truly international game of basketball. Thanks Jimmy!

      ​@Ty J OMG you gotta be kidding. First of all Jamaica does not win all the gold medals in 100m. Second the only reason they are competitive is because they started investing in that particular sport, even for scouting you need money, do you even know the amount of infrastructure, technology, studies, theory, programs, trainers, scholarships, etc you need and how much it costs for professional sports nowadays. By that logic India should be winning the most medals alongside with China. And why is it that China only started increasing their medal output once they stated investing heavily in sports? Literally the amount of money the US sports industry moves is greater than any other country. Whether certain populations are physiologically better adapted for certain sports does not mean they're just gonna be able to beat someone with an entire life of the best training programs money can buy, there are exceptions, but those are extraordinary cases, not the rule.

    • Ty J
      Ty J 5 miesięcy temu

      @jassLmhn yh, cos money is what makes countries win... that's why Jamaica wins all the gold medals in 100m races... (not literally ofc). Talent is the reason. The more interest in a particular thing, the more likely a country is going to dominate; if there a large population to back that up, then even better. Most American would probably rather play basketball, American football, baseball etc. than be a sprinter. Jamaica probably has more interest plus talent. America is one of the only countries that gives a challenge when it comes to the 100m anyway

      @hsc sam actually, there was a small country in the eastern Europe called Jugoslavija that was taking USA alone, and had more trophies than any country. To this day if you look out at the world's championship throphies Yugo has the same as USA (after 30 years of not existing!!) and the countries that were born after the split still managed to win one silver and one bronze medal. Today it would have Jokic and Doncic in the same team, as well as other great players that are in Euroleague and some extra big man like Marijanovic. And the good part is that it's good even in other sports, world class in Volleyball and Waterpolo, many talents in Soccer, Tennis and so on.
      Let alone uniting other nations.. Eastern Europe would be enough to crash in almost every sport you can think of, Europe as a Nation would be illegal

  • Martan Schlemper
    Martan Schlemper 9 miesięcy temu +240

    Hot take: ball possession/touches and area’s where players receive the ball influences PER ratings. Doncic had 10 more touches a game than Embiid and probably farther away from the rim, which makes it more difficult to have a high PER. Also the amount of touches makes it harder to have a high PER.
    Would love to see Jimmy’s take on this

    • HomerOJSimpson

      @Nicholas Strezynski I don’t know how many videos of his it took for me to notice he isn’t good at anything to do with statistics or judging across different eras but it was probably very quickly. However I think most of the videos I saw from him early on were not statistic driven - I recall the first one was about the Melo brothers in high school. He’s good at that content. Putting together their highlight reel and telling a story.

    • HomerOJSimpson
      HomerOJSimpson 3 miesięcy temu

      @Nicholas Strezynski “thinks linearly”. That’s it! That’s a good way to put it. Jimmy can’t do nuance - he sees some stats, he makes assumptions without using any other context. He sees 3 guys had 3 of the top PER in on season, he just thinks it’s because they are that great. He won’t look deeper where he will realize many stats are much easier today and PER has a lot to do with how many stats a player can get per minute. Players today are given far more control of the offense plus its faster pace so more opportunities to rack up stats such as pts rebound assist etc.

    • Nicholas Strezynski
      Nicholas Strezynski 3 miesięcy temu +1

      @HomerOJSimpson you are completely right. His understanding of math in general is very flawed. He screws up logic and thinks entirely linearly. He just loves outliers and makes videos about them. He’s very creative but not super intelligent which is fine, but you are right it doesn’t make him an authority on basketball like one would think. It takes a few of his videos to notice this.

      @Tony Sanchez also, if scoring isn’t easier, why did lebron have arguably his best points per game and effective fg% combo? He became a much better player at age 37? But he’s 3rd team so I guess so many players today are better than lebron ever was

    • HomerOJSimpson
      HomerOJSimpson 3 miesięcy temu +1

      @Tony Sanchez Jordan averaged 32-8-8 and he’s the only player from late 60’s to about 2013ish to average 28-8-8. But in the past decade NUMEROUS players have done so? And effective fg%, scoring and scoring per possession are at all time highs yet it’s not easier to score and put up numbers today?

    As a Utah native, I remember going to a game early in his career when Giannis struggled to get 10 points against Gobert. Look at him now. Terrifying.

    Jokic averages half as many freethrow attempts as Giannis and Embiid. Crazy

    • tropickman

      Jokic: 6.3 fta/game
      Embiid: 11.8 fta/game
      Giannis: 11.3 fta/game
      Jokic would've averaged over 31 PPG & won the scoring title last year, were he granted as many free throw attempts as Embiid.
      31 > 27.3 + (11.8 - 6.3) x 80%

      @fenriszzz - Sportscards and Things I like Gianni's better. Defensively he can switch on smaller guards without being bbq chicken and he can't shoot from outsiders, but his true shooting and efficiency are insane. You surround him with shooters and he is about as dominant as prime Hakeem or Shaq.

    • fenriszzz - Sportscards and Things
      fenriszzz - Sportscards and Things 5 miesięcy temu +1

      @Clan Waddell Right thats exactly what i said, hes the best big in the game except perhaps Jokic, but neither will be able to carry their team like in past eras because of the game's shift to guard play and the 3 pt shot.
      Put simply, either of those two could score 60 a game and 25 rebounds, and still have a good chance of losing the game.

  • Oscar

      @Lendrick Kamar You said Curry deserved to win MVP in '21 because he was "far better" than Jokic was this year and that's not true at all, so I gave you the stats. I think you are hella hypocritical and you don't appreciate what Jokic did this season.

      Curry '21 stats - 63 games, 2152 minutes, 26.3 PER, .655 TS%, 6.5 OWS, 2.5 DWS 9.0WS, .201 WS/48 8.3 OBPM 0.4 DBPM 8.7 BPM 5.8 VORP
      one game winning shot vs Rockets, on-off court (how well does the team score with or without Curry) was +8.6
      Jokic '22 stats - 74 games, 2476 minutes, 32.8 PER (best in NBA history), .661 TS%!!!!, 10.8 OWS, 4.5DWS, 15.2 WS, .296 WS/48, 9.2 OBPM 4.5 DBPM, 13.7 BPM 9.8 VORP
      three game winning blocks: Nov vs Rockets, Dec vs Warriors, Feb vs Raptors, on-off court was +16.4!
      Curry was awarded All-NBA 1st Team in 2021 and he deserved it, but Jokic carried so fucking hard this season, he is the MVP without question.

    I still think the game has changed so much comparing stats to past generations is impossible. Points are easier to get in the current league due to increased fouls/less contact/worst defense. Even bad teams are scoring over 100 point on the regular.
    But dont get me wrong I think its sweet to see the "big man" role evolving. To see a 7'0" tall guy be able to move and shoot instead of just going down low and posting up every time shows the position has evolved. Not just there to rebound. They can go out and shoot 3s now.
    Just my opinion though.

    Yes, the game has evolved tremendously. I think, however, a big men down low with technical skills like Tim Duncan’s would excel, a floater, off the class bank shot, quick feints, along with short mid range, would be such a powerful consistent player to rely on.

    • Daragh McQuaid
      Daragh McQuaid 8 miesięcy temu

      I think the point is that even an extremely efficient player like Duncan will always be at a disadvantage because he’s scoring 66% of the point on a made three. Look at true shooting percentage. Players like Jokic can miss more shots but be the better statistical shot in the long run

    As someone who's only gotten into the league over the past few years, my thoughts and opinions will only need to be informed. So can you please tell us how you could count charles barkley as a Big Man when he's said loads of time he's 6'ft4. Is this purely going by the 27pt,11rb a game logic? Cause as much as i love Charles i wouldn't want him going up to block any of those 5 players ahead of him in that 95mvp race.( which is not saying he couldn't i just wouldn't want him to for a full game)

    • jw31
      jw31 7 miesięcy temu

      I think Jimmy's referring to play style (i.e. the position they played). Charles Barkley was a power forward and played like he was 6'10''+ (which is why he's widely considered one of the best power forwards of all time). When Jimmy referred to "big man" in this video, he was likely talking about power forwards + centers

  • xx765
    xx765 9 miesięcy temu +1

    One of the reasons must be the ability to consistently shoot 3s. From a PER point of view 3 pointers are very efficient, plus it's a much more sustainable way to score points comparing to wrestling other big men for heavily contested 2s.

    • Tristan
      Tristan 9 miesięcy temu

      @Kai Warren You're very right about the Nuggets next year they should be a team to watch in the West. As much as I want to agree I can't anymore. Middleton out; Bucks will be relying on 30 10 5 from Giannas every night. They should squeak out a game 5 win but next round the Celtics will win easy if Middleton misses 3+ games. If hes back for game 2 or 3 it might go 6 or 7. What my major point here is obvious but its that when a big man MVP isnt getting around 30 10 5 the rest of the team is dogshit in comparison to a competant squad. Take game 5 Embiid. He sucks and the 76ers fans left with 4mins left. They get double teamed and forced to make turnovers. Big job for coaching and players stepping up. I believe the future of the game has forwards and guards as the stars. Even Shaq will say he should've won 2-5 more rings. I just read that Embiid is telling Doc Rivers that Harden needs to shoot more. Lmao what a fucking fun time to be a Raptors fan. Game 6 Fuck Embiid chant going loud. I just hope its a close game 7 so Embiid can cry on his home court this time so the fans know what a delusional, phony pussy he really is. Hope he gets the mental worked out cause he is physically gifted beyond a Shaq level imo. Amazing jumper; just stop swinging those meat cleavers around every play and the thumb might start getting healthy

    Back when the NBA didn't have as much various skills the big men dominated because they were big and could rise up and score more easily over the smaller player. But then as the game progressed guards could easily pick up better handling and shooting to put their game far above the rest of the players. Now in today's game the few big men who are capable of adapting and adopting the skills of capable guards, shooters, and all around scoring/defending, the Big men have the clear advantage since they have the skills of elite-level guards with the dominant size of a 7 footer.

      I hate it. When I watch Joker play it's just the absolute most boring thing. Watching these past playoff games versus the Warriors, you see the Warriors getting really creative with drives to the basket, reverse layups, pump fakes, 3 pointers, fade away 2s, etc... then Jokic gets the ball, shoves backward into the paint using his massive size, turns around and drops the ball in from 2 feet away. This is so painfully boring to watch. I really dislike a player scoring points purely for being big and tall. What's next, an 8 foot dude who just puts his arm up and drops the ball into the basket? How is that skill? How is that exciting? At that point all a big would need to do is be able to jog up and down the court. Whenever their team gets possession just go stand near the paint, have them toss the ball to him, and he just reaches out and puts the ball in for 2pts. Wow, really exciting basketball playing there.
