  • Coach Nick shows you how both these teams are attacking in the offense, and why the Cleveland Cavaliers seem to have a much better understanding of who to attack on the Raptors defense.

          I think Quin Snyder should be fired if the Jazz can’t get their offensive efficiency to 4th or 5th in the league this upcoming season.

                                                  You must have 2 SHARPSHOOTERS on the court as teammates with Lebron James. 😀😀😀
                                                  Lakers fans hated that historical fact about Lebron James-led teams, for over 15 years.
                                                  They hated it because their CHOSEN 2 didn't fit the description of SHARPSHOOTER.
                                                  Traded off to New Orleans, now order is about to be restored.

                                                    Toronto Raptors reaches the NBA Finals and win a Championship Ring only after Lebron James goes to the Western Conference. 😀😀😀
                                                    You know how Lebron James looks at this = still Lebronto

                                                      Lakers back to the Championship days of a 1-2 Punch with new addition, Anthony Davis !!!
                                                      That Step-back 3-pointer stroke by Lebron James is a GAME CHANGER. 😀😀😀
                                                      Basically a point guard in a small forward's body, DUAL THREAT !!!
                                                      Can beat you as a scorer or assist man (passer).
                                                      That's why you don't need a THROWBACK-STYLE Ricky Rubio-type Floor General at the 1-spot.
                                                      You need a Fred Van Vleet-type SHOOTER point guard to shine with Lebron James

                                                          This is a good example of how if a team knows how to defend the pick and roll, or at least knows how to not make the same basic mistakes that this Toronto team kept making, an offense the way Lebron wants to play gets so stagnated. Even though they could always beat Toronto, their offense was still 4 guys spending a lot of time standing around looking at LeBron.
                                                          And it shows how well Lowry and VanFleet improved their individual games from that year to this year. Lowry is not a good shooter, but he did play well during the finals.

Clearly they are capable of winning without them, but now that they don’t have KD (but they still have Boogie) suddenly “oh they lost cause KD was hurt”. No. They can win without him. They failed this year because the other 4 all-star starters (4 all-stars from past 2 years for starters!) couldn’t keep up to the revitalized Raptors. GSW just weren’t as good this year as past years, KD missing isn’t an excuse since they are clearly capable of winning without him and Boogie.
