I used to think I was gleaning stuff from the minds on this forum.

now I think,,,,,,not so much. lol

actually this is in line with everything else in life. there's stuff people THINK they know, and there's stuff ONLY the pros know will work, and never the twain shall meet. maybe some pros aren't good at explaining it, but they know what's right and why. and "knowledgable fans" are just well-versed in the rote.

I got 8/10 on both quiz. I felt like I should've gotten 9 on the first and I wasn't really on my answers on the second. I had a hard time figuring out the correct rotations when the goal is to double the ballhandler. While watching the game in real time, I always felt like it was an easy call to make but it isn't.
