D. Smith: Wright may play tomorrow, coaches getting fined for ripping refs

Quote:
Of course, there’s no Reggie Evans, which is a blow, but with Hedo getting up to full speed, and Antoine Wright seemingly close to returning (I hear he’s going to go full contact today and may play tomorrow) everyone they’re counting on is ready to take part in workouts.

The defensive system – clog the middle and deny paint penetration -- is not going to change. It will, however, lead to nights where teams get more good looks from long range than they’d like.

And, if teams make 13 of 23 three-pointers, Toronto is going to lose. Pure and simple. Luckily for them, those nights don’t come around too often.

Stan Van Gundy gets whacked for $35,000 for ripping substandard officials.

Larry Brown’s total is $60,000 for his criticism and antics and Lionel Hollins gets hit for a $25,000 fine.

The Orlando, Charlotte and Memphis organizations have to pay a total of $85,000, too.

All because replacement officials – working because the league locked out its regular refs – simply are not good enough.

The fines, to me, seem a bit excessive but a clear signal the league is going to hammer coaches – and players, dare they be critical – quite hard for speaking out.

There is no way in the world that the folks in the ivory tower in New York aren’t aware of the fact these guys, who are simply trying to make a buck and catch a break, aren’t up to snuff.

But stifling legitimate criticism isn’t going to make the games any better. That’s only going to come when the two sides settle this dispute and it better be before the regular season begins.

Why? Because if The Replacements can’t handle the low-intensity pre-season they are going to be even further exposed with the tempo increases starting Oct. 27.

Ha, really? Were were leaving them so much space it wouldent seem out of place if every team his these 3 numbers. Pluss the fact that we cant sink any 3's really hurts us in trying to come back and win a game..

The fines are not excessive.

The teams and players talk in terms of $100,000 and $1,000,000.
Fines at $25,000 are just there to get their attention.

Everyone in the NBA has been screaming at the Refs for years and ripping them regularly. With replacements refs this could get really embarrassing real fast.

Since the league isn't going to settle easily with their own refs anytime soon
They have to stomp out the criticism of the replacements.

Accepting bad refereeing isn't anything new.

you want them to take a lower percentage shot
an open 3 is less likely to fall then an uncontested 2 in the paint, maybe thats how Jay sees it

Only problem with that philosophy is you only need to shoot 33% from three to get the same amount of points shooting 50% from two. That is easily do-able every game. So in other words if you let them shoot a measily 33% a game from the arc your really allowing the equivelant to a 50% shooting
percentage. That's not gonna win you many games.

if you leaving uncontested shots or tip ins in the paint there is an 80% chance they'll go in
so you would want to take 33% from downtown

Depends, if you hold a team to 30-33% from three, and 40-45% from inside the arc, you should win running away with it, especially with our offence. And contrary to the consensus we have a potent offence once we play more together.

So we're depending on other teams missing wide open threes. Nice.

The fact is, they can't be putting all there eggs in that basket. I mean, if we're playing a shitty 3point shooting team, sure fine. But we should also play zone defence, man to man defence...which should be used against good shooting teams. The fact is they'll have different systems for different teams. Teams like Orlando that can absolutely kill us from outside would shred us with this strategy, so they'll have to be defended differently. Matchups will dictate what defensive strategy we use, at least it should.

Jay doesnt say we will give to teams wide three..He say we have to defend inside coz we are very weak that.So push them to arc,do fast rotation,and defend all hands up..This could work.Just need more time to work for.

if Bosh/Barg doesnt work this year;BC must choose one..Trade one for solid center and play man to man mostly in games.

Why does the entire team need to collapse when someone penetrates? Give minimal help off shooters and let the penetrating guards try to finish over the bigs. I'd be more comfortable with that as opposed to constant uncontested J's.

Surely there will have to be some sort of adjustments in the regular season games. Like at least changing some of the defenders on the floor.

If all rotations are done correctly, people will not be wide open for threes. I think that Houston killed us from three because of specific missed assignments, not because the system is so flawed. I think once/if five guys get one the same page and execute the system, rotations will be made, and shooters will be closed out.

P.S. there were some possessions where they played very good defense in terms of rotating on the perimeter.

It is just preseason, and they're learning.
