2020.10.26 20:42 Rhyzel1766 I want my Cinderella story

Brandon Roy is the reason I started to watch basketball again. I'm ready to bring his story arc full circle.
We bring him on as an assistant coach under Stotts. We have 3-4 years of god tier point guard Dame. We win a championship or two and as Dame enters the twilight of his career Stotts retires and passes the torch to Roy.
I have Neil's approval. I'll talk to Jody in the next few days and see if I can get her buy-in.
But in all seriousness, I know he has found success with a cherry picked high school team. He had an elite level of basketball IQ as a player. What are the chances that Roy can coach in the NBA?

2020.10.23 15:35 gucciflipflops337 My 2020 Mock Draft V2 - With analysis

I did one of these a couple months ago and some stuff has changed since then so I figured I would do another one. Also, sorry for the formatting I suck at reddit formatting.

Wolves - LaMelo Ball
I think the best fit here and most obvious pick, if they don't trade out. LaMelo probably has the highest ceiling in this draft. If you forget about all the Ball family drama he's actually a really talented NBA prospect, much better than his brother IMO. He's got a natural feel for the game that you can't teach. His shot selection and defense are questionable but I think his size and playmaking upside make it worth the risk. There are questions about his fit next to DLo but I think that his skillset is best suited as a primary scorer secondary facilitator. If you allow LaMelo to run the offense it could open that many more shots for Russell and Towns.

Warriors - Deni Avdija
I think this comes down to 2 guys or a trade. I doubt the Warriors are going to be able to trade this pick because I'm guessing they'd have to attach Wiggins to move it and I just don't see any other teams that would be willing to take him to move up in this years draft. The 2 guys I think that the Warriors will be targeting here are James Wiseman and Deni Avdija. If you think about what makes the Warriors system so great it's the ball movement. The players are constantly moving with and without the ball, lots of screens, lots of DHOs, and other various motion sets. In this type of movement heavy system you need to have players on the floor who are willing and able to make good basketball plays. I don't see Wiseman has a super high IQ, make the right play type of guy. There isn't much film on him after being suspended but I didn't really see much in the area of post playmaking from him. I think he probably clogs up the paint and kills the motion offense and I don't see the Warriors wanting to take a few years to develop him since they're in win now mode. This is why I think Avdija is the pick here. He's a high IQ guy who's a good playmaker at the forward and his shooting has significantly improved over the last couple years. He can be a catch and shoot guy who moves well without the ball and create his own shot if needed. He fits well into a good defensive system because he's a smart team defender. He's a pretty good athlete and has good size. The Warriors would have a slam dunk with Avdija if they stay at 2

Hornets - Anthony Edwards
The Hornets really need everything. They have very little talent on their roster so they won't be drafting for need. With LaMelo and Avdija going 1-2 the best player available here is Anthony Edwards. He's probably got the highest upside in this draft as a scorer and shot creator even though his shooting was a bit questionable his freshman year. He's a super athlete who's got potential to be a real 2way threat. Edwards is a true boom or bust player so it makes sense for the Hornets to take a shot.

Bulls - Isaac Okoro
The Bulls have a lot of young talent on their roster right now. I think Coby White is their PG of the future, Lavine is one of the best SGs in the league, Lauri had a down year last year but still super talented as a stretch 4 and then I'm excited to see what Wendell can do with an entire season. I'm guessing Porter picks up his player option, because why wouldn't he. Even if he does it doesn't change that he's not the long term answer there for the Bulls I think the only thing the Bulls truly need right now is a wing defender and Isaac Okoro fits that perfectly. He's probably the best defender in this draft. He's got great instincts and defensive playmaking ability and is switchable onto anyone. His shot needs work but if he could even be an average shooter he's going to be a great player.

Cavs - Onyeka Okongwu
Well the Cavs would probably be pretty upset if both Okoro and Avdija were off the board. They really need a strong defensive wing player because both Sexton and Garland are undersized PGs who aren't great defensively. KPJ has great size and versatility but sometimes loses focus defensively. They're also going to need a player who's not ball dominant as they already have 3 young guards. I think Andree Drummond is probably gone after this season and it seems unlikely that they will resign Thompson so I think it would make sense for them to draft Onyeka Okongwu. He's the best defensive big man in the draft great shot blocker and rebounder for his size. He's got solid footwork in the paint and has good touch around the rim. Won't be a high usage guy and could anchor the Cavs defense.

Hawks - Devin Vassell
The Hawks are pretty loaded with young talent right now and personally I think they should trade down or out of this pick. There is a point when you can have too many young players. If you forced me to pick someone here I think Devin Vassell would be a good fit. He's an elite defender, which they need next to Trae, and a knockdown shooter who's got good size and a high release point. He's got a very good overall game and is NBA ready. If Cam Reddish becomes an elite defender like I think he can be and Vassell pans out well, watch out because the Hawks are gonna be good.

Pistons - Killian Hayes
They need pretty much everything but most of all they need a primary ball handler. I think the Pistons would be pretty happy to pick one of the best PGs on the board here and I think that is Killian Hayes. He's got a great feel for the game and is a good playmaker. He's a lefty too. He's 6'5 so he has an NBA body. He's a good shot creator with a tight handle and good step backs but is a streaky shooter. He needs to work on his right hand drives among other things and he's still pretty raw as a player but I think he's got great upside.

Knicks - Tyrese Haliburton
Knicks are another team that is desperate for a PG. Ntilikina is not the PG of the future, he can probably be a serviceable backup but I think the pick here for the Knicks is Tyrese Haliburton. Haliburton probably isn't going to wow you and turn into a true alpha lead scorer but he is more than capable of handling an offense and consistently making good plays. He's got good size at 6'5 and is a high IQ team defender. He needs to improve his footwork a bit in one on one situations and add some weight to his slim frame but I think he can be a really solid high-end starter for this knicks team

Wizards - James Wiseman
I'm surprised I have him falling this far but with the 9th pick I have the Wizards taking James Wiseman. It's rare to find a truly dominant big man like Wiseman projects out to be. A season ago he was projected as the #1 overall pick but has steadily fell over the last few months. It could be because of the lack of tape on him. He only played 3 games at Memphis after being suspended by the NCAA for his family taking some money to relocate. I think it's crap that the NCAA puts these players in a stranglehold and I would love to see more top players skip college and go right to the g league but I'm not going to get into that rant today. Wiseman has great size and length at 7'1 with a 7'6 wingspan he projects out to be an elite shot blocker and rebounder who has good touch around the rim. He's a lob threat in the PnR and has a good shooting form but it's unknown whether that projects out to the 3pt line in the NBA or not. With his physical attributes and skills he could end up being the best player in this draft but if he lacks a shooting touch and doesn't improve his questionable court awareness he could end up being a bust.

Suns - Obi Toppin
The Suns have a super impressive young core, I think they look to build off their bubble performance this season and are contending for a playoff spot in the west next season. Baynes and Saric are both FAs so that leaves an open spot at PF. The best fit and best available player here for the Suns is Obi Toppin. Probably the best offensive forward in this draft. He's a great athlete in the open floor and is a crafty scorer and explosive leaper. He shot 40% from 3 in college but his mechanics need some work and it was a small sample size so I'm not sure whether it's going to translate or not. His shot % dropped significantly when he wasn't wide open. Anyways, he does have a well rounded and polished offensive game. He's ready to come in and contribute to a good team right away and would fit well on the Suns. I don't want to talk about his defense much because it's bad, really bad. Just a total lack of court awareness and slow feet is a recipe for NBA disaster.

2020.10.23 06:17 nanotyrannical Warriors Mock Offseason

As some of you may know, NBA_TradeDiscussions has been hosting a mock offseason in which one representative of each team is acting as the team's general manager. Duties included making trades, signing free agents, drafting players, etc. The commissioners of the "league" were extremely knowledgeable on every specific salary cap rule, trade restriction, etc that the NBA uses, and every action was reviewed by them so that the offseason adhered to the rules of the NBA itself as closely as possible. I acted as the GM for the Warriors, and most of us have decided to see what the community thinks of our respective moves.
Keep in mind that while I did my best, I'm no real GM, and it's certain that some of you will disagree with certain moves I made. Let me know what your criticism is in the replies, I'd love to hear thoughts on what I could've done better. All I ask is that you read the whole post, and therefore gain an understanding of the moves I made, before trashing me in the replies lol. Obviously, it's not all that realistic. But it was a lot of fun. Thanks to u/PeasePorridge9dOld and u/chitown_nation as well as all the other GMs, player agents, insiders, etc who helped to make this simulation so much fun.
Goals
I'm sure you can guess that my goals for this season were to put the Golden State Warriors in the best position to contend for a championship. In the past, we had the luxury of several elite players in their early prime allowing us to contend for season after season. This allowed us to hold onto our draft picks, rather then trade them away as many teams looking to contend do. But that's not the case anymore. With the core aging and our window shrinking, I had to accept that trading some of our picks would be necessary to give us the highest chances of success.
The Team Pre-Offseason
Here's what the roster looked like before any moves were made:
Steph Curry
Klay Thompson
Draymond Green
Andrew Wiggins
Kevon Looney
Eric Paschall
Jordan Poole
Alen Smailagic
Damion Lee
Ky Bowman
Marquese Chriss
Mychal Mulder
Juan Toscano-Anderson
The Team Post-Offseason
Here's what the team looked like after the offseason was complete:
Steph Curry
Klay Thompson
Draymond Green
Nikola Vucevic
Eric Gordon
Dennis Schroder
Andre Roberson
Danuel House
Eric Paschall
Landry Shamet
Marquese Chriss
Georges Niang
Nigel Williams-Goss
The Conundrum Of The #2 Pick
Heading into the offseason, I already knew that the pick was getting traded if I got an offer I liked. That doesn't necessarily mean the Dubs shouldn't hold onto it in real life, but I was excited to see what the pick would get me. I had several targets I was considering, including Victor Oladipo, Myles Turner, TJ Warren, Andre Drummond, Vucevic, Aaron Gordon... I seriously considered a trade of Wiggins and the 2nd pick for Drummond and the 5th, believing Drummond's expiring cap space might be more attractive to a team looking to clear cap then Wiggins's longer contract, but ended up settling on a deal for Vucevic and the 15th pick for Wiggins and the 2nd.
Don't get me wrong. I like Wiggins. I think he has potential, especially with Golden State. But Vucevic unlocks everything.
On offense, he's both powerful and has a soft touch. He can shoot the three, rebound the ball, and is an underrated playmaker. His defense is where he truly shines, however. His defense single-handedly got the Magic to the playoffs two years in a row. His IQ on both sides of the ball is superb. There is no better center for the Warriors. Imagine his gravity pulling teams inside while Steph and Klay pull defenders out. Just the in-out threat alone will create open looks galore for every other player on the court, and Draymond being a non-shooter is no longer such a liability.
The Obvious
Eric Gordon's contract is abysmal. Disgusting. Horrific. I know.
With limited options, I decided to send the Timberwolves' 2021 first-rounder and the Iguodala TPE to Houston for Gordon. My thoughts were based on flexibility. The TPE cannot be packaged with players or other TPEs in trades. In trades involving players, their salaries only have to fall within 125% of each other, allowing for flexibility. That rule does not apply to TPEs. My thoughts were that Gordon could be packaged with other salaries to get a higher-paid but better player, which the TPE alone could not provide.
I made the mistake of overestimating Gordon's market. It was bad. His contract is, again, ridiculously bad. Most teams wouldn't touch it with a 10-foot pole.
Regardless, I came within a hair of completing a trade revolving around Gordon for Danilo Gallinari, the perfect fifth starter. It took me two days and lots of haggling, but the trade was submitted for approval by the commissioner. It was basically done.
My hopes were felled by a single rule: a team over the apron can't acquire a player in a sign-and-trade. A minor penalty for being over the apron, it was enough to crush the trade and leave me to dream of what could have been. A starting five of Steph, Klay, Dray, Vuc, and Gallo... Imagine the spacing. The size.
Anyway, my plans for Gordon almost worked. But the bottom line is, they didn't. I've got Eric Gordon on the team.
Just for a moment, ignore the insane contract, age, and recent injury troubles. Let's look at the pros.
Gordon is coming off a "down season" in which he averaged 14 and a half points a game and had a 50 point game on a contending team. In the playoffs, he often looked like the second best player on Houston, stepping up to fill the gap left by an injured Westbrook. All this on still pretty good perimeter defense.
Despite his contract, Gordon is still a very productive player who can space the floor, play defense, and knows how to work around stars. He's 31, but that's better than 35 or 36.
Plus, the Dubs get to steal a key player from their greatest Western Conference opponent. So there.
The Bench
My next priority after getting the Vucevic deal done was securing an offensive leader for the young bench. I wanted a vet, someone Lou Williams-esque, who was on a cheap deal and whose role was purely to score the ball whatever way he could manage. My primary target was Derrick Rose, but I settled on a deal that brought in Austin Rivers and Danuel House in exchange for Looney, Smailagic, and Poole.
I liked Looney and wanted to keep him, but he was at the time the most movable salary, and with the emergence of Marquese Chriss and the acquisition of Vucevic, as well as the presence of small-ball bigs like Draymond and Paschall, Looney's salary was better filled for that bench guard. Rivers is an extremely cheap 8-10 PPG who is used to playing on a contender, but the primary asset of this deal was Danuel House.
A skilled 3-and-D wing with size and youth who averaged nearly 11 a game on 6 attempts from 3 and played great defense, again on a contender, I think he'll be very valuable to the team.
Some might consider my decision to trade Smailagic and Poole as dangerous because it leaves us devoid of youth. Let me explain my thinking here. It was very important that Golden State keep youth on the roster, but it was more important then that to pursue a championship. Therefore, I adopted a policy that attempted to fulfill both of these goals. I wanted cheap, younger players who had already proven that they could contribute on high-level teams.
Smailagic and Poole have arguably higher ceilings than the players I elected to trade for, but the fact is that they cannot contribute to a contender at their current level. Danuel House and Landry Shamet were the players that fit the role I wanted perfectly. Shamet averaged nearly 10 points a game on the contending Clippers, while House was superb on both ends for the Rockets. And it never hurts to have more shooting. Neither Klay nor Steph nor Eric Gordon are immune to injury, as we well know, so should one of those key offensive players go down, a high-volume shooter like Shamet can slide into their role and partially fill the gap. A "splash step-brother," of sorts.
Marquese Chriss is Marquese Chriss. Warriors fans saw how well he played for us this season. A high-energy, quick-footed, rim-runner who, while slightly undersized for the position of center, can catch tough lobs and even showed some semblance of willingness to learn how to shoot the three. He should be a decent backup for Vucevic when a change of pace is needed. A less expensive Montrezl Harrell.
Paschall averaged an efficient 14 points a contest for us, showed impressive poise and maturity for a rookie, and should develop into a great support piece for Draymond when necessary. Obviously, he won't maintain those numbers when the Dubs are ready to compete again, but his "training wheels" season should help him give him the experience and confidence to contribute.
Dennis Schroder, who finished top 3 in sixth man voting last year, averaged an efficient 19 a game on only 31 minutes per. With an even more reduced role, he should be excellent in providing offense off the bench. Despite popular belief, he's not a bad shooter, averaging 39% from three on 5 attempts a game last year. Again, more shooting never hurts.
I picked up Andre Roberson for the taxpayer MLE of a little over 5 million. Roberson is a bad offensive player. That's a well-known fact. But on defense, he's superb. He can switch, he can lock down, he has length and size. He can fill the shoes left by the Andre before him. Now, I'm admittedly being optimistic here. But on a team with 2 of the best shooters of all time stretching the floor and Vucevic's powerful inside presence, Roberson will see more open threes than he's ever dreamed of. And we know how good the Warriors' shooting coaches are. Who knows?
Georges Niang won't get many minutes. But the fact is that he played minutes for a good Jazz team this season and averaged 40% from 3 on 3-and-a-half attempts in only 14 minutes per. Not horrible. Yet again, it never hurts to have more shooting.
Nigel Williams-Goss, a Jazz rookie last year, is a backup of a backup of a backup.
Versatility: The Championship Recipe
The 2020 NBA Champions, the Los Angeles Lakers, faced several different teams during their run to the finals. The micro-ball, super-speed, heliocentric Rockets. The superb inside-out game of the titanic Nuggets. The ultra-switchable three-point-sniping Heat. All three played extremely different styles of basketball, and the Lakers dealt with that by changing how they played against each one.
Against the Rockets, they went small, playing Markieff Morris at center and completely removing Dwight Howard and JaVale McGee from the court. Against the Nuggets, they went big, using the immense power of Dwight against the size of Denver down low. And against the Heat, they benched Dwight yet again, instead opting to play Caruso, Caldwell-Pope, and Green alongside James and Davis and matching the heat's shooting prowess.
To win, a team must be able to do that. That's the reality now. A team has to be able to succeed when playing multiple different styles of basketball if they want to have any real shot at the title.
This Warriors team can do that. They can go big, small, switchable. Against the massive Lakers or Nuggets or Bucks, the size of Vucevic and a taller wing in place of Gordon can contend with their size. Against a smaller team like the Rockets that forces a defense to switch over and over, the team can bench Vucevic entirely if necessary. A gauntlet of ultra-switchable, lengthy, versatile, skilled perimeter defenders around Steph can lock down any smaller perimeter team. In a lineup of Steph, Klay, Draymond, Danuel House, and Andre Roberson, Steph is the only player who could be considered any sort of a weakness. And as the Warriors themselves have proven over and over again, that's not a weakness that can be effectively exploited.
Conclusion
This team can go big, or small, or somewhere in between. It has shooters. It has defenders. It has high-IQ players. It has a deep bench that can slide into gaps if one of the primary pieces goes down. It has youth in Paschall, Chriss, Shamet, and House. It has its flaws, but it's a contender. That's for damn sure.
How do you think I did? Let me know in the replies. Obviously, this is unrealistic. It's a "fantasy offseason" of sorts.

2020.10.23 02:18 5topdreaming Love is Sweet [Episodes 19-30] Weekly Discussion

submitted by 5topdreaming to CDrama [link] [comments]


2020.10.22 23:03 TemperatureMobile Should I disclose my disorders and be shunned or keep taking the blame and be scorned?

I'm a low-functioning and high IQ person in my early 20s who's been taking a beating from life since my late teens when my schizophrenia genes turned on. I'm on the mild end of the autism spectrum and schizophrenia spectrum. I also started having symptoms of a sleep disorder and borderline personality disorder during the same time in my late teens, and life has been extremely difficult since then. I'm not messed up enough to be written off and spared but I'm too messed up to coalesce anywhere. Because I'm reasonably articulate and have some talents, people expect things of me that I never end up being able to give.
My previous work got me into an elite school which I was able to graduate from, but I'm now dysfunctional, uncomfortable most of the time, chronically unemployed, and socially marginalized. Everywhere I live, people start gossiping about me and turning against me until I have to leave. Some of it is my poor attention to detail (accidentally leaving things amiss around the house) and some of it is just that I think they can sense that something's "off" about me and can't figure it out but know they can't have me around. Being a girl makes it worse because I'm always acting in ways only expected of guys and breaking unspoken rules. People end up thinking I'm trying to screw with them or play some kind of game, and the more I try to explain myself, the more I look like I'm doing it. With every professor or boss, I end up having an issue and not meeting expectations. Nearly every interpersonal situation I've been in for the past 5 years has brought me slow alienation, marginalization, and failure, yet people continue giving me chances and expecting me to succeed because I always eventually do something to generate additional interest or redeem myself.
I always have a few friends, plugs, and mentors around. But I never seem to become what they think I can. It's a loop with no end in sight. I can't give up but I can't be all-in either. I write and maintain a website, and I'm good at prospecting. There are always a few people around who think I have talent and really want me to succeed. But I'm so dysfunctional and bizarre that I can never adapt and fit in, so I eventually put off everyone I don't keep at a distance.
I've tried everything under the sun to change- therapies, intensive reflection, medications, supplements, medical devices, this and that, but most of it comes down to poor functioning caused by the negative symptoms of schizophrenia, my intractable sleep disorder, and the interpersonal disconnects that come with being on the spectrum. When I was younger, all I had to deal with was the last thing, but in combination all of my slight disorders end up making life nearly impossible when I'm not completely alone doing my own thing. When I try to change there's always something else that I forget or neglect. Even if I remember to clean 30 things a day, there's something I don't see and people think I'm leaving it around on purpose. If I walk on eggshells to be socially palatable I'll make an expression that puts people off and they'll think I'm being rude.
I feel like I just can't win these days. I try to explain myself but it seems like I'm making excuses, and that makes people angrier. I want to start isolating myself and working remotely part-time but right now I can't afford to live alone and I can't create a career that's exactly how I need it to be. If I disclosed my disorders, maybe that would clarify things and make things easier with people, but maybe it would just seem like bullshit and make things even sourer.
TLDR:
How should I go about dealing with people in the future? When this stuff happens again, should I keep taking the blame and seeming like an inconsiderate weirdo, or should I be upfront about who I am and risk additional stigma?

2020.10.22 21:16 okok890 If Naidan and Ryuki are "equal" Was Yumi vs Jose really "onesided"

Sayaka or Jerry have a worse fight iq than Ryuki and are unreliable commentators. So does that mean the random pro wrestler that watched Jose vs Yumi is also unable to really tell how close a match is or was the random pro wrestler related to Kazzy and could call a fight better than a Former elite Kengan fighter

2020.10.22 10:21 WillEid Something's wrong with my brain. Could this be due to residual giftedness?

I used to get identified as very smart and gifted by teachers when I was a kid, until around age 11 when I stopped trying in school and gradually lost my giftedness. Teachers treated me like some kind of golden cow as a kid who would go on to study their favorite subject, which I hated to hear. There was no gifted program at my school. They didn't give me an IQ test, but I scored in the 98-99 percentile consistently on standardized tests and was tested as highly creative once I got past the hurtle of performance anxiety. I've never seen any real evidence of myself being smart though, and I attributed good grades to the material being easy or having learned it from other sources. It was only elementary school after all. I can't bring myself to take any sort of self-esteem from being smart like others do from their talents, and it's not the case any longer.
My problems though are many. From when I was young, I found the activities other kids wanted to do very boring, and I often spent recess periods just walking around on my own daydreaming. This pattern of behavior has persisted to adulthood for me, and I can't connect to people over very many things. I'm willing to try almost anything, but I don't get the excitement from watching football like they do for example. I know people will read some sort of elitism into this, but I promise it's not that. I also don't generally want to talk about "intellectual" things with people if that makes sense. Like I said, I'm no longer smart, and I've given that up to just play lots of games in my spare time and work menial jobs. I don't care about social status (including people's IQ or education), and I don't care about smart subjects like math and physics. Philosophy was kind of interesting when I was going through a rough time, but I don't care about the big questions like if a god exists or we have free will. If I took an IQ test, it'd probably be just above average, but then again, doesn't everyone say that?
Socially, I've always felt weird and have been singled out for being different. I used to be somewhat of a hyperactive extrovert and try to make people laugh, but I changed my personality to the polar opposite when I was 14 after experiencing rejections. I think I was borderline ADHD as a kid, and my mom hated me because I just couldn't/wouldn't behave for her. She went on about she wished child abuse were legal so she could give me what I deserve, and I was definitely spoiled as a kid. I would constantly ask to go do different things on a whim, and my grandfather would usually oblige. One day when I was 6, my mom couldn't take it anymore, and she just grabbed me and screamed at the top of her lungs into my face and then yelled about how I'm never satisfied and always ask for more. I've been self conscious since then and never wanted to ask people for any amount of their time or money unless they were getting something in return. I hated myself for having such behavioral issues and constantly being in trouble. A small amount of it was from being bored in class and causing trouble, but the vast amount had no real reason other than impulsivity. I just wanted to prank another kid or defy my mother, and I didn't even think about if it was a good idea, just that it was hilarious to me and needed to be done. I may have had the start of ODD or a conduct disorder. It's hard to say, other than there was definitely something wrong with me. Maybe even narcissism or sociopathy. My mom's idea was that I had autism, which I don't think is likely because in many ways my problems are the polar opposite of what autistic people experience. Example: I get overly self conscious because I can pick up the subtle cues that people find me strange and can easily tell when they're using veiled insults or talking down to me.
But as far as autism goes, one thing I can kind of relate to is sensory experiences. I would never willingly go to a smokey bar with strobe lights and loud music. I'm very uncomfortable with strong sensations of any sort, but I've never had a meltdown or needed to stim in those situations like an autistic person might. I just get irritable and start looking for a justification to leave.
Part of my weirdness is also having strong emotions. It's easy for me to cry through empathy or laugh at horrible things that people around me find funny even if they're offensive. My emotions are the main reason I think I'm insane. I had spiritual explanations for my strong feelings when I was in high school, but I've since become an atheist and realize they're emotions that only I feel that aren't going away.
When it comes to friends, I tend to want to befriend people who have conditions like ADHD, autism, or who I perceive are weird in some way. They are the sort of people I tend to idealize. I don't know what is wrong with myself, but I usually sense a kinship with them.
Is this residual giftedness? Something else? A personality defect? How can I find others like myself?

2020.10.21 23:49 SUICIDE_BOMB_RESCUE Is there still a chance Dahlin becomes one of the greatest defensemen in league history?

Coming into his draft year, he was regarded as "the McDavid of defense" and left our jaws on the floor with his highlights coming out of Sweden. Expectations were high for this kid straight out of the gate but all he's done since then is show flashes of his high-end skill here and there and hasn't truly made a name for himself yet.
At this point, it's fair to say he hasn't had anywhere near the impact McDavid has and has generally been pretty underwhelming relative to his pedigree. You can easily see the elite skating, hands and hockey IQ from time to time but he has yet to take over a game or even mitigate the goal bleeding that has been rampant in Buffalo for years.
Given what you've seen from him thus far, how do you predict him performing next season and do you think that he'll ever live up to his insane hype?

2020.10.21 19:48 NextMention10 2020 Lakers vs 2019 Raptors vs 2015 Warriors vs 2018 Rockets. Who are the best teams in order and who would win head to head in a playoff series?

2020 Los Angeles Lakers
Starting 5: KCP-Green-LeBron-Morris-AD.
6th man: Rajon Rondo
Other noteable rotational pieces: Dwight, Caruso, Kuzma, and Javale.
Misc: They did not play with homecourt advantage in the playoffs. The Lakers also had to have their season halted, while they were looking very impressive and dominant before the season ended (they beat the Clippers and Bucks back to back). They were missing a huge rostion player who brought great shooting and defense, in Avery Bradley in their playoff run.
Who they beat:
4-1 Blazers
4-1 Rockets
4-1 Nuggets
4-2 Heat
2019 Toronto Raptors
Starting 5: Lowry-Green-Kawhi-Siakam-Gasol
6th man: FVV
Other noteable rotation players: Ibaka and Powell.
Misc: While Kawhi looked like a monster the first 3 series, he was clearly hobbled and injured by the time the Raptors reached the finals. While he put up an impressive finals, it was not as good as his previous playoff series. The Raptors were also missing OG, who would have been a huge player to their rotation, and I am sure he would of taken more of Green's minutes, due to Green's poor playoff shooting. OG would have added to their already elite defense.
Who they beat:
4-1 Magic
4-3 76ers
4-2 Bucks
4-2 Warriors
2015 Warriors:
Starting 5: Steph-Klay-Barnes-Dray-Bogut
6th man: Igudoloa
Other noteable rotational pieces: Livingston, Lee, Barbosa, Speights, and Ezeli.
Who they beat:
4-0 Pelicans
4-2 Grizzlies
4-1 Rockets
4-2 Cavaliers
Misc: Andrew Bogut went down with an injury in the finals. Bogut was integral to their defense, as he was the teams best rim protector and he was a high IQ player, while being a good rim protector.
2018 Rockets:
Starting 5: CP3-Harden-Ariza-PJ-Capela
6th man: Gordon
Other noteable rotational pieces: Nene, Gerald Green, and Mbah A Moute.
Who they beat:
4-1 Timberwolves
4-1 Jazz
3-4 Warriors (lost)
Misc: The Rockets posted an impressive 67-15 record, despite CP3 battling hamstring issues throughout the year. The Rockets were by far the closest team to almost beat the KD Warriors, when they were up 3-2 on the Warriors. Unfortunately, CP3 strained his Hamstring, missed games 6 and 7, and the Rockets had a historically poor shooting game 7.

2020.10.21 15:35 Urbenmyth 6 Biological Upgrades

Evolution. A crude process of dead ends and ad hoc, short-sighted solutions. It produces barely functional, hack-job bodies.
We are here to fix it.
We will give your body the abilities it deserves. Alas, we are not omnipotent. We can't make you perfect at everything. You will have to choose an area of evolution, and we will give better solutions then the random chance of mutation.
So choose. It's time to take your next step.
  1. Living Weapon- your body is optimized for combat and physical exertion. Your skin is hardened to the toughness of a high-tech bullet-proof vest without losing flexibility, and your speed, strength and endurance are increased to the level of an average grizzly bear. You are cured of any conditions that would inherently hamper your abilities to fight (e.g. legs grow back but diabetes stays). You have retractable claws equivalent to a combat knife, and can biologically shoot projectiles on the level as a pistol. You can selectively deactivate or reactivate pain receptors at will, and also have an altered endocrine system, giving you the enhanced physical abilities and focus of adrenaline without getting distracted or irrational due to it.
  2. Singularity- your body is optimized for intellect. Your brain is improved in a number of ways. As well as raw increases to memory, pattern recognition and so forth, putting you at an IQ of 230, the procedure also removes the inherent cognitive biases that humans have, making you no longer susceptible to group thinking, logical fallacies, emotional bias and so forth. You also gain conscious control of your emotions, able to switch them off or on as suits you. Any mental illnesses you have are cured.
  3. All Seeing- Your body is optimized for perception. Any sensory issues you have are cured. Your vision is now on the level of an eagles, and you can see into the infrared and ultraviolet spectrums. Your hearing is on the same level as a bats, and you can hear hyperlow or high frequency sounds. You have a sense of smell and taste like a bloodhound, and a sense of touch strong enough to sense things moving near you by air flow. Your brain is altered such that basic everyday perception isn't overwhelming.
  4. Eternal- your body is optimized for survival. Your body is reset to the early twenties if older, and any physical illness you have are cured. Your telomeres are altered such that you no longer biologically age. In addition, your regeneration is increased to the level of being able to regrow limbs in months, you have multiple redundant organs, and your immune system is able to prevent any infection or pathogen. Your biological efficiency is enhances so you can be healthy on as little as a large meal a week and a glass of water a day, and need only sleep an hour a night.
  5. Beautiful Elite- your body is optimized for social skills. You can have your physical appearance set to any naturally possible human form you like. Once there, you will show no external signs of aging (although you still age) and do not scar. You have no need for hygiene, and will not naturally smell or look dirty (someone could still dump garbage on you). You have a natural intuitive ability to read people, and are highly charismatic. In addition, you can release pheromones that cause anyone around you to instinctively perceive you as either harmless, charming, threatening or sexually appealing (you can choose which one, or stop releasing them, at will). People can push past the instinct if you do something to shatter the illusion.
  6. Generalist- your body is just generally improved. In terms of strength, speed, intelligence, perception, endurance and lifespan, you are at a high (not peak) human level. You're as physically competent as a professional athlete, have an IQ of around 160, rarely get ill, have 20/20 vision and can expect to live to 100. Any illnesses you have are cured if they could be cured by cutting edge medical treatment. In all areas, you're pretty good. If are already better in any of these areas, you stay as good as you were.

2020.10.21 14:46 Bobbert84 My guess on how Genius should be graded

When you tell someone so and so is a genius it's meaningless in trying to convey what you mean. Everyone has a different idea of what being a genius means. Did you graduate HS at 16 by skipping 2 grades and getting a 1500 on the SATs or are you the next Newton. You need to explain what you mean to someone when you claim so and so is a genius. So to clear up this confusion it would be a good idea to come up with a ranking system so people know what you mean when you call someone a genius (give or take). Here's how it could work.
Genius is defined usually as having a 140 IQ depending on the source. It is estimated between 1% to .25% of people fill this definition. I will for simplicity sake make it .5%(rounded up). If we go by that definition 1 in every 200 or so people would be considered a Genius. This is what we'll use as our basis and call a category 1 genius. The most common. While they are highly competent they aren't really movers of the world.
The odds of being a category 1 genius are 1 in 150-200 and there would be about 40,000,000 category 1 geniuses in the world. Example: A very good Medical Doctor. Using this as a basis you can just fill out the rest with the same .66%-.5% multiple give or take.
Category 2 geniuses are 1 in 30,000 and right now there would be about 200,000 people. These people tend to make up the top of their fields and are in on the key in working on high end projects. Example: I got to work in a team at CERN and help with such and such competent of the project.
Category 3 genius is 1 in 5,000,000 and there would be about 1,000 people. These are the elites of the world. They are not only heads of their field but innovators. Examples: See my nice shiny Nobel Prize?
Category 4 geniuses are 1 in 1,000,000,000 (little less) and there are about 5-8 people like this in the world. It isn't just about IQ but how they use it too. For instance while his IQ may not be sky high I would consider Elon Musk such a person. Stephen Hawking was another. These are true movers of society.
Category 5 geniuses are 1 in 100,000,000,000 give or take. Usually they aren't around. When they are they are absolute giants and sharpers of humanity. Examples are Newton for sure, maybe Shakespeare, Perhaps Da Vinci? Tesla? Einstein? Keep in mind only about that many people existed so far. Having more than one would be exceptionally lucky.
This could be re-done by someone who wants to put more thought into it but i feel the short hand of a cat 1 or cat 4 genius when your talking about a genius could just make things so much more clear.

2020.10.20 15:11 watermelanoma69 2020 superlatives

RoY: Obi toppin: his current game will allow him to step right in and be productive.
Best rookie 3 pt shooter: Isaiah joe: unlimited range and a lot of length. Bane a better shooter now but I have a feeling Joe will project better as a pro.
Best rookie defender: wiseman/okoro: wiseman has the physical tools to be a dominant center and should challenge for league lead in blocked or altered shots. Okoro will be able to guard 1-4 pretty comfortably.
Best career: James wiseman / Anthony Edwards: both of these guys have elite physical tools which along with their respective skill sets, will set Them apart from the rest of the class. I see Anthony Edwards as a stronger oladipo mixed with the driving ability of a small Lebron. Wiseman will be a great defender and a great #2 option for a team on offense.
Biggest bust: lamelo ball: won’t be useless but will probably have a career like Jason Williams. Highlight passes and inefficient shooting.
Best point guard: killian hayes: I love his game. Step back is a great move but he should also take it to hoop more.
Best midrange shooter: grant riller: can make every shot.
Best dunker: obi toppin: dude can jump and throw it down
Highest b-ball iq: tyrell terry: scouts have said that he scored incredibly high on a b-ball iq test and he plays that wAy too.

2020.10.20 02:52 nwatkins364 (OC) Kyle Anderson Deep Dive: Evaluating his performance for Memphis this season and how he stacks up to comparable players in the league.

In a league where shooting is king, the defensive-minded player is often forgotten. Memphis Grizzly Kyle Anderson may be a player existing in an era that is not suitable for his style of play. Let's take a look behind the curtain and try and determine if the Kyle Anderson signing of several summers ago was a positive move or a detriment to the organization.
A little background
The Grizzlies signed Kyle Anderson away from San Antonio in restricted free agency during the summer of 2018. Prior to coming to Memphis, Anderson started in 100 games in four years for the Spurs. The former UCLA Bruin is a multi-positional defender who uses his height and length to make up for his lack of speed. Anderson has never been much of a shooter, especially from three point range. He has averaged less than one attempt per game from deep over the course of his career. Kyle has earned his money mostly on the defensive side of the ball, where he led the league in Defensive BPM in 2017-18, according to basketball-reference.
What the Grizzlies were expecting to get in Anderson was a Tayshaun Prince type player who makes his teammates better while also taking tough defensive assignments in crucial situations. Let’s break things down and see if they got what they bargained for.
Where does he rank among his peers in the league?
As I normally do for these types of analysis, I attempted to narrow the field and find players in a similar bucket of impact as the subject of study. For this exercise, I looked at all the players who logged minutes at either forward spot and bracketed those guys who played 33% over and under Kyle Anderson’s 1,333 minutes of run -- between 933 and 1,732 minutes.
Forty seven players fell into the qualifying criteria. Here is where Anderson ranked among those 47 players in various important categories.
What does this data tell us?
Well, essentially it confirms that our eyes were not deceiving us. Anderson logged a lot of minutes for Memphis this year, with not much to show for it - at least on offense. The defensive side takes a little more deciphering to judge his production value. I’ll go into more detail on his impact on both sides of the ball in the upcoming sections. However, to give you an idea of his offensive impact, some of the players in his category with similar usage rates include Trey Lyles, Torrey Craig, Grant Williams, and Solomon Hill. On defense, some of the advanced metrics favor Anderson and speak to his ability to use his basketball IQ in place of raw athletic ability. For example, in his “forwards with similar minutes category”, Anderson ranks second in defensive Box Plus-Minus to only Jonathan Isaac of Orlando. This would show that the Grizzlies get good per-minute value from Anderson on the defensive side of the ball, but in some games he becomes unplayable simply due to the pace. Giving Anderson minutes has proved a double-edge sword for coach Taylor Jenkins.
Is Kyle a viable option on offense?
I guess the answer to this question all depends on your expectations. In this day and age of NBA hoops, most teams expect a significant amount of their offensive production to come from wings or multi-positional guys. Anderson is a tweener. He’s not tall enough to be a rim protector and spend significant time near the hoop on defense. But he also is just not a good outside shooter. This causes him to end up having to take most of his shots near the goal, where the Grizzlies often already have their starting center positioned.
According to Cleaning the Glass, Anderson sports a usage rate of 14.6%, which puts him in the lower half of all forwards. Memphis is not running any of their offense through him and is rarely looking for him to create a shot for himself. This is especially true from three, where he did not make a single unassisted shot this season.
Occasionally he can surprise everyone with a crafty eurostep, but he only averages a few buckets per game, proving that this is a far from frequent occurrence. He also only earns 105.2 points per 100 shots, which was in the 38th percentile of forwards at the time of my research.
As far as overall shooting, Anderson earned an eFG% of 50.6%, which is the 40th percentile for forwards according to CTG. There seems to be a consistent trend where he ranks in many offensive metrics. Clearly, there is a lot left to be desired on the offensive end. Anderson shot above average from two point range at 53.6%, but was in the 11th percentile of forwards from three (yikes!).
Another problem with playing Anderson alongside the primary Memphis players is that 44% percent of his two-point shots are not at the rim and are considered mid-range. When he does shoot these shots he is solid on them. Anderson is one of the better mid-range shooting forwards in the league, hitting at a clip of 47%, which is good for 89th percentile. The problem there is that these types of shots kill the spacing that Memphis is trying to create. It’s not like Kyle is a DeMar DeRozan type player who is taking mid-range shots at a high volume and is able to get a bucket whenever his team needs it. During clutch time, Anderson was virtually non-existent -- and I don’t even feel like I need to cite the stats on that statement. He hangs out in that lost area of the court for most of the game but has only a few points to show for it at the end of the day.
To wrap it up on offense, let's touch briefly on his passing, where he is actually quite clever. Anderson’s assist to usage rate was 1.11, which was upper tier among forwards. However, he also turned the ball over a lot at a rate of 14%. There really is nothing to get excited about on the offense end with Kyle Anderson. He serves as a veteran on this young roster and putting him with the second unit as an additional ball handler alongside Tyus Jones would be the best bet for him. Most of the guys coming off the bench can stretch the floor well, which could allow him to get closer to the rim for his shots instead of settling for mid-range jumpers.
How does he fare on the defensive end of the court?
As a team, the Grizzlies fell right in the middle of the league this season, allowing 110 points per 100 possessions. This isn’t too bad for a team sporting the youth of the Grizzlies. Statistically, Anderson was one of the better defensive players for Memphis this season and played a large role in stabilizing this young group. In his physical form, Anderson is tall and has long arms. These attributes allowed Taylor Jenkins to utilize him in a variety of matchups and against a variety of positions. These physical traits help offset his lack of speed and quickness by allowing him to recover quickly and muck up passing lanes.
Anderson was third on the Grizzlies this season in defensive RAPTOR with +2.1. He ranked only behind guard De’Anthony Melton and center Jonas Valanciunas. In this same statistic, Anderson ranked 51st in the entire league and 16th among small forwards. The majority of the players ahead of him are considered elite defensive players like Matisse Thybulle, Kawhi Leonard, and Jayson Tatum. For reference, LeBron earned a +1.3 in defensive RAPTOR during the regular season and was the 21st best in this category.
The Grizzlies wing was 11th in the entire NBA in Defensive Box Plus Minus with +2.0. Anderson made the most of his time on the defensive end of the floor. No one can take that away from him. Jenkins used Anderson to try and stifle everyone from Anthony Davis to James Harden, and plenty in between. Even with tough matchup assignments, Anderson earned a DRTG of 109, fourth on the Grizzlies among players with a thousand minutes. Those with better numbers are limited to De’Anthony Melton, Dillon Brooks, and Jonas Valanciunas.
Does he make his teammates better?
This season for Memphis, Anderson started in 28 games out of the 67 that he played in. He missed the majority of last season due to a shoulder injury that still plagued him this season at times. Though he averaged a shade under 20 minutes per game, Anderson was fifth on the Grizzlies in total minutes for the season. He was tied with Grizzlies’ point guard Ja Morant in games played, so the sheer volume of appearances helped his total minutes. This gives us a strong sample size when examining his on-court impact.
Though he was top five in minutes played, he was only ninth in points scored for Memphis. This is to be expected, as Anderson is a 5 point per game scorer in his career. If Chris Wallace sought out Kyle Anderson for his scoring ability, that would be terribly misguided of him -- not that I’m ruling that out.
With Kyle on the court, Memphis had a net rating of minus -2.9, contrasting with a net rating of plus -.69 with him off the court. The team OffRtg was 6.89 points worse per 100 possessions with him on the court and their DefRtg was 3.28 points worse as well.
He played the most significant minutes with two particular lineups. The first one included Dillon Brooks, Jaren Jackson Jr., Ja Morant, and Jonas Valanciunas. This group played 152 minutes together and was negative -11.7 points per 100 possessions. That number right there is why Anderson did not start the majority of games this season. He failed to mesh with the starters and provide significant value to that group.
With a lineup of Brooks, DeAnthony Melton, Morant, and Valanciunas, they rated out at plus -8.6 points per 100 possessions. In this lineup, Anderson was tasked with guarding more post players or stretch big men compared to wing players who were too quick for him.
With Anderson in the game, every single player he logged over 100 minutes alongside took slightly less shots at the rim due to the lack of spacing that Kyle provided. This hindered the Grizzlies’ offensive style and their overall shot quality took a dip. Also, Ja Morant - who is known for his creative passing and explosive athleticism - was a much less effective passer with Anderson in the game because defenses knew they could leave him open without much threat of him hitting an open three. Morant’s assists per 100 possessions took a nosedive when playing with Anderson as he averaged 3.11 assists less when sharing the floor with him.
Wrapping it up
Is Kyle Anderson worth the contract that he is on and does he fit within the current construction of this Grizzlies roster? I’m pretty sure when Memphis made the decision to sign Anderson away from San Antonio, they were hoping to get a Tayshaun Prince or Shane Battier type player who impacts the game beyond the box score. Someone who doesn’t get you many points, but does all the little things right and helps guide the team to victory.
Right now, Anderson is slated to make $9.5mm next season and $9.9mm in the final year of his contract following that. That makes him the 5th highest paid player on the active roster. For someone who started less than half of the games this season and played less than 20 minutes a contest, that is tough to justify. Though Anderson is solid on one side of the court, he is such an extreme liability on offense that it makes it very hard to find minutes for him. On another note, the Grizzlies have a big decision to make this offseason on whether or not they want to try and bring back De’Anthony Melton on a new contract. Melton and Anderson are both defensive-minded players, but Melton has the clear advantage when it comes to offensive upside -- even though he did not show this in the bubble.
Now that the Grizzlies have new leadership and a new direction under Zach Kleiman, Ja Morant, and co., it seems the smart choice is for Kyle Anderson’s role to shrink as long as he is in Beale Street Blue.

2020.10.19 18:45 sakinnuso Gen Quest 2 Thoughts, Elite Strap w/Battery, Creed vs Thrill of the Fight, Blaston, Cook-Out, and More...

Before any of you say anything, YES, I'm a hypocrite. I'm the guy who started the "I'm cancelling my Quest 2 Preorder" thread. What can I say? I love VR and some of you had some strong arguments. I put my Quest on ebay, sold it, Pre-ordered by Quest 2 from Best Buy for in-store pick up, and Bob's your uncle.
Some thoughts:
tl:dr - Of course I love it. It's an amazing system and it's nice having all of the extra storage space. I had it for a week w/o the Elite Strap. Tried the Elite Strap with Battery last night.
Carrying Case: 1. The carrying case zipper is laughably bad. I thought that the OG Quest carrying case zipper wasn't great, and I'll never understand why these devices don't have the suitcase-style two-zippers on-a-track design. However, for the faults of the first one, this is immediately worse. This Quest 2 clamshell design hides the zipper track AND THE actual zipper itself underneath the thick lip of the shell. Also, the zipper is very thin and easily breakable. Fortunately, I have a 3rd party alternate case that I used for my Quest 1.
Comfort:
  1. I played for about two hours with NO comfort issues. More importantly, no shifting headset. Previously the headset might drift down making maintaining sharp IQ difficult with sudden movements. Last night, I played through Blaston (GREAT FUN), Cook-out: A Sandwich Game, a couple of rounds of Thrill of the Fight, and a fight in Creed. My extended battery was at 25% (i never charged it), and my Quest unit started out at 80%. I ended the session with 25% on Quest and 9% on the extended battery. I stopped mostly due to sweat.
  2. The new foam cushion is very comfortable, but you'll need replacements if you intend to work out in this thing. I can see it getting pretty yucky.
Thrill of The Fight vs Creed:
  1. For the record, If Creed and Thrill of the fight merged into a single game, there would be no better boxing game. I want a boxer that plays like Thrill of the Fight with Creed's production value. The music and all of the extra stuff they added to Creed makes it a great Punch-Out boxer masquerading as a real boxer. The training stuff is fantastic. When you combine the music and the presentation and you knock somebody out, it FEELS amazing. Like you're in a Rocky movie. When you're standing over the unconscious body, it's rush. Thrill of the fight is a real straight-up workout that simulates REAL boxing. it's no joke.
Blaston
  1. Blaston is really fun. Again, you'll get a real workout if you're playing it correctly. You will move. A lot. It's like close range Space Pirate Trainer. You'll feel like Neo with the amount of dodging you'll do. Playing against a good opponent will keep you on your toes. I've had projectiles coming at me leaving me wondering if people are jumping in the air to send those bullets at crazy angles?! Lots of fun! No toxicity! A great workout!
Cookout: A Sandwich Tale
  1. If you like cooking games (they're my secret favorite thing to do in VR), and you like stuff like Dead Hungry (my favorite PSVR game), I can't hard sell enough how great Cook-out: A Sandwich Game is in multiplayer. If you're into coordination and teamwork and micromanagement, it's a freaking BLAST. I play solo, too. However, in Multiplayer? Incredible. And Hectic.
Other Games...
  1. REZ has never been better. That is all.
  2. Next on the list is Star Trek: Bridge Crew. I'm intimidated by that game because I don't want to be the weak link. I love Trek, though.
  3. Almost pulled the trigger last night on Pistol Whip. Instead, Venmo'ed my buddy the cash for Star Trek (Quest has no gift system). Pistol Whip will be my first purchase after Population One.
  4. Dash Dash Racer is surprisingly fun. It's not Mario Kart good, but I'd wager that it's Crash Team Racing fun.
  5. Quest has nearly killed my PS4 and Xbox one. I didn't see this happening. I've been a VR guy since GEAR VR. I don't have a PC. I sold my PSVR in preparation for OG Quest. I have an INCREDIBLE backlog on my PS4. Every major AAA game. I did maybe 25% through Avengers before tapping out. I've been playing games for over 30 years and. there comes a point where the graphics are improved, but they're mostly the same thing over again. Not *all* flat games, but many of them. VR feels so fresh, even now. I can't believe that it's the only 'next gen' tech that I care about right now. Is it just me? Between this and Stadia (Cyberpunk), I'm good. More than good, actually....
