benzo I like the guy, but he cant do ANYTHING on defense becuase he is too slow. I think he is a decent helper though

i've seen lots of too slow guys be excellent defenders. garbo is one very slow dude and he was guarding threes. defense isn't about quickness. its about effort, anticipating where your guard is going to go before he gets there, determination, communication, and trust. thats why coaches get pissed when guys play shoddy D.
i think JK can bring that, in fact if he wants to play, he has too.

None of it matters. Delfino has asked to be traded in the offseason so he'll never have to be interviewed by Rod Black ever again.

First of all Rod Black is just an idiot. He asked a bunch of really long,dumb, rambling questions and which was further complicated by the fact that Kapono was out of breath, could barely speak and is already not the sharpest tool in the shed.

Kapono was interviewed by him at halftime and Delfino after the game.

The effort as certainly there in the first half. Delfino was doing a lot of scrambling for loose balls and dirty work. He was succesful too. I thought he played a good game. not much in the second half though... but a good game.

What I want to know is why Delfino was open for a three time and time again as a spot-up shooter and Kapono wasn't?

It could be a simple function of the opponents not EVER leaving Kapono unattended no matter what's going on with other players. Or it could be that something that works to free up Delfino from downtown is not being run for Kapono.

My point is this: last night, Delfino was deadly from 3. The next game, most likely, he will make 1 of 5 - the dude is just such a streaky shooter. I'd rather see Kapono take those threes...

From what I can tell that's exactly it. I liked what he did last night moving without the ball and TJ and Delfino both seem to have a knack for finding him cutting to the basket.

MY only issue is that Kapono never ever gets any passes from his team mates... why? I don't know... but they are not even looking at him... he & and he alone is the only guy on this team that has a right to chuck few 3's every game... he had 1 (you read in right one) three point attempt in the last 10 games or so... How is that possible?

The only time he's ever open is off of screens. He's never left unattended beyond the arc and there's always a man following him to the corners.

I say this shit all the time and you guys ignore me.

GOSH!

He ain't open because he doesn't ge topen, and he is easy to guard.

Delfino brings more to the game.

Kapono really needs to start making some shit happen at both ends.

I agree with you guys, we need his Gun at the gun fight, but he has to start hitting, and he has to be a part of him being open.

Mind you, he IS the only guy Tj will pass to outside of Bosh.

I was wondering the same thing, how can we get so many shots for delfino, and yet kapono hasnt' attempted a 3 pt shot in a month? Kapono has the quickest release of any of our guys - it's really mindboggling why he's not shooting more. My money is on Sam trying to make him do other things, kind of like "we already know you can shoot the lights out, use the regular season to learn " ...

I don't know if this is the right answer, but for one thing, Delfino controls the play a lot when he goes into point-guard mode, so in essence he just puts himself in the position to get more passes - as oppose to Kapono who usually stays in the corner and has to wait for the ball to get swung around to him. If you think about it, it's only natural that the guy at the centre point of the offense will see the ball more than the guy in the corner. And Delfino is just more trigger happy than most of our team too.
