THE 20 YEAR EVOLUTION OF THE NBA

THIS CHART WILL SHOW THE TOP 200 SHOTS ACROSS THE NBA.

A COMPARISON FROM 2001-2002 TO NOW. (2019-2020)

JUST WOW!

I WONDER WHAT THE SHOT CHART WILL BE 10 YEARS FROM NOW.

WILL THEY ADD A 5P SHOT FROM 35 FT?

TODAYS NBA IS ALL ABOUT OPENING UP SPACE TO CREATE 1 ON 1’S MISMATCHES ALL THROUGHOUT THE GAME.

IF A MAN GETS BEAT ON DEFENSE USUALLY HELP DEFENSE ROTATES.

BUT IF THAT ROTATION IS LATE BY ANY MEANS THAT COULD RESULT INTO A LAY UP OR A WIDE OPEN 3.

THAT IS HOW THE NBA IS BEING PLAYED TODAY.

DO THE FANS ENJOY THIS STYLE?

I PERSONALLY THINK NBA PLAYERS SHOULD PLAY FASTER THAN THEY PLAY NOW.

THE SKILL LEVEL IN THE NBA IS DIFFERENT THAN HOW IT WAS 20 YEARS AGO.

UTAH JAZZ – 10 GAME WINNING STREAK

THE LAST TIME THE UTAH JAZZ LOST WAS ON DECEMBER 23 , 2019. THE JAZZ LOST AGAINST THE MIAMI HEAT IN A CLOSE NAIL-BITER. SINCE THAT DAY THE JAZZ MADE A TRADE WITH CLEVELAND FOR JORDAN CLARKSON. CLARKSON’S ROLE IS TO HELP IMPROVE THEIR DEPTH AND SCORING OFF THE BENCH.

WITH THIS STREAK:

ON A SCALE 1-10 HOW IMPRESSED ARE YOU WITH THIS WINNING STREAK?

I WOULD RATE THEIR STREAK AT A 6.

THEY ARE TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS AGAINST WEAKER OPPONENTS. IF THEY KEEP THIS STREAK ALIVE WHEN THEY PLAY AGAINST PLAYOFF TEAMS THEN I WILL CHANGE MY MIND. HOW LONG CAN THIS WINNING STREAK LAST?

THE UTAH JAZZ ARE CURRENTLY IN 3RD PLACE IN THE WEST WITH A RECORD OF 28-12.

ALSO THE UTAH JAZZ ARE TIED FOR THE THIRD BEST RECORD IN THE LEAGUE!

THIS CHART SHOWS THEIR WINNING STREAK AND THEIR OPPONENTS OVER THE LAST 10 GAMES.

HOW LONG CAN THE UTAH JAZZ KEEP THIS WINNING STREAK?

SHOULD DONOVAN MITCHELL BE IN THE MVP DISCUSSION IF THE UTAH JAZZ KEEP WINNING AT A HIGH CLIP?

I WOULD.

CAN THE JAZZ FINISH IN THE TOP 3 IN THE WEST?

HOPEFUL.

DETROIT PISTONS BASKETBALL – TIME TO BLOW IT UP

THE DETROIT PISTONS HAVE BEEN ONE OF THOSE TEAMS THAT HAVE HOVERING AROUND MEDIOCRITY FOR SEVERAL YEARS NOW.

IF THEY MAKE THE PLAYOFFS THEY ARE USUALLY AN EASY OUT FOR THE TOP TEAMS TO KNOCK OFF IN THE FIRST ROUND. IN THE OTHER SCENARIO, IF THEY MISS THE PLAYOFFS THEY USUALLY FINISH AROUND 9 THROUGH 12. AND THAT IS RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF NOT TO GOOD BUT GOOD ENOUGH TO GET A TOP DRAFT PICK!

PLAYERS TO TRADE:

*TEAMS WOULD WANT HIM INCLUDED FOR A TRADE PACKAGE.

BLAKE GRIFFIN:

AGE – 30

REGGIE JACKSON

AGE – 29

MARKIEFF MORRIS

AGE – 30

DERRICK ROSE

AGE – 31

*LUKE KENNARD

AGE – 26

*LANGSTON GALLOWAY

AGE – 28

1 CHEST PIECE TO KEEP:

I WOULD KEEP ANDRE DRUMMOND. HE HAS A LOT OF VALUE AND HE IS 26. ANDRE DRUMMOND CAN STILL IMPROVE VASTLY. I THINK IT IS TIME TO GIVE HIM THIS TEAM SO HE CAN RUN WITH THESE YOUNG PLAYERS!

WHAT TO WANT BACK:

DRAFT PICKS & EXPIRING CONTRACTS. THAT CAN BE DONE THIS YEAR!

YOUNG ASSETS:

THE DETROIT PISTONS HAVE A LOT OF YOUNG TALENT. GIVE THEM MORE MINUTES AND SEE WHAT YALL GOT FOR THE FUTURE.
