Not only is his production dropping, so is his efficiency. The Role you get and amount of touches a player gets matter so much more than many are aware of.. Happened to Kemba with Boston.. look what happened to Harden last year and even this year.

If this can happen to Allstar level players, can you imagine a player like Nesmith getting a shot every now and then? and expect him to e a knock down shooter.

Give him real minutes or trade him. other wise it will be useless

Anyone who has ever played on a good/competitive level knows this.

Talking about Nesmith - even in the non-Celtics thread - your obsession with the guy is bordering on unhealthy :wink:

Still pizzzed at losing to Dallas and Luka always shooting well against us.. Tonight vs Chicago 5 for 17 and 1 for 6 from 3.. shooting 27% from 3, yet he kills us.. how the F does that happen. we should have won 4 in a row..

Lakers down 30, Westbrook with a +/- of minus 40. It warms my heart to see.

The perennially mismanaged Wizards managing to turn the worst contract in the league (John Wall) into the second worst contract in the league (Westbrook) and then turning that into good quality role players (Kuzma, Harrell, and Caldwell-Pope) and cap space to sign Dinwiddie, while exponentially increasing their chances of keeping Beal, is one of the best series of moves by any team in a while. Although I guess the Rockets and Lakers stupidity probably shares more of the responsibility than the Wizards brains trust to be honest.

Loving the Dubs pumping the Nets right now. KD and Fat ass on the bench watching Curry splash daggers through their souls is glorious.

Crazy how good GS is even without Klay.

One thing I have been noticing is that with the new rule changes on unnatural shooting motions to draw fouls AKA Harden's special, he looks nothing special anymore. he averaged at or over 30 points per for almost 6 years and without Kyrie only getting 19 per??

10 of the top 11 teams in the East have winning Away records. The only exception, Charlotte, is at 4-5.

The Staple Center has been renamed. It is now the Crypto.com Arena

I am hoping Coinbase buys the name rights to the Garden and we can call it the Coin Garden. Sounds lit.

For any of the posters who frequent the GB, The_Hater passed away of cancer a couple of days ago. There’s a memorial thread on there, was a bummer to wake up to. Him and I went back and forth plenty of times over the years, but was pretty much always civil.

**** cancer.
