@gs: Opponent Game Thread Highlighs
Phil, for example, was Pistons head coach John Kuester’s first NBA coach. Rick Adelman was teammates with Jerry on the Bulls, and then was coached by Phil in Kansas City. And as we all know by now, Toronto’s Jay Triano was once cut by the Jazz in favor of a rookie named John Stockton. These examples, of course, do not take into account Jerry and Phil having coached against probably ten head coaches when they were still players.
Here’s a picture from a game between Indiana and the Soviet Union national team in 1985, featuring Brian Sloan and Arvydas Sabonis:
Today’s Opponent Game Thread host: Golden State of Mind.
The last time we visited the GSW game thread (at the end of last season), they were rather preoccupied with cheering for tanking and rooting on Sacramento that night so that the Kings would end up with a better record than GS, and hopefully get a lower draft pick. Tonight, they were entirely focused on the suckitude that was the game at hand:
I’ve always suspected Jefferson doesn’t always work hard enough to get inside shots, even when he’s supposed to be posting up. When he gets himself to <5 feet from the rim, he has excellent touch around the hoop, but it seems like if a player works hard on him early to keep him from getting to that spot (and it's not like Jefferson has great quickness to consistently beat good D or anything), he'll settle for those inefficient jumpers he has a penchant for taking instead of putting in extra work to try to get to the rim.

The Jazz coaching is VASTLY superior as well as the general culture for the Jazz. I don’t think that team will let him choose to suck.

Deron Williams is my second favorite point guard of all time.
Right behind Tim Hardaway.

by Wreckonized on Nov 6, 2010 11:03 AM CST
Meanwhile, in our game thread over at SLC Dunk, we were having the exact same conversation:
No jumpers please
by Juan B on Nov 6, 2010 10:53 AM CST

by moni on Nov 6, 2010 10:53 AM CST

by Shells on Nov 6, 2010 11:40 AM CST
Me: I wonder who Shells is talking about. He can’t possibly be talking about us.
Ab + Lee = 27 boards

by dubzfan on Nov 6, 2010 12:45 PM CST

by QualityOverQuantity on Nov 6, 2010 12:47 PM CST
Me: Um…isn’t it clear that AK hasn’t cut his hair in quite some time?

Man the Jazz announcer
much respect on the Warriors
by mykelala01 on Nov 6, 2010 1:02 PM CST
they are quite classy
plus their play by play guy doesn’t sound like an effusive 14 year old at a justin bieber concert like our beloved Fitz.
by dso on Nov 6, 2010 1:04 PM CST
jazz announcers and fans
seem like some of the best in the nba. much respect to them.
