This is the final clean slate he's getting from me.

The first 3 years are freebee's, then he got another 1 last year because Montgomery's an idiot (everybody got one cause of that)... and now he's getting 1 from me because he's switching to PG. This is it.

That's Understandable, I think the whole PG "switch" is really just a way to get Dunleavy going, It was benefiting Baron though because when he would get the ball he would already be in good position to either create something or skee-skirp to the rack :mrgreen: Baron also had 9 ast, 0 TO's, 5-5 Ft's :D

Baron should have had 12 or so assists, but I remember a few times players did not convert easy buckets. :banghead:

Defense definitely showed, which is refreshing. Dre and Ike were tough!

But this new basketball is still messing with me. Everytime a shot doesn’t go down (rattles out, bounces out) I attribute it to that. It seems to have a strange and harder bounce off the rim.

It's been said the opposite, that the ball is softer so less long reb's to start the break with :!:

yeah, really, the best wecan hope for is a neutral, so here's a positive Dunleavy comment: I liked how open BD was at off-guard. Of course the "off-guard" had nine assists and the "PG" had one :shock:

IMO, the starting 5 should be BD, Monta, JRich, Ike and Andris, w/Pietrus, Murphy and Dun off the bench (and Wagner)...of course, if Pietrus keeps playing like last night, hard to keep him off the floor...

It’s not about the long rebounds, but more of the bounce off the rim I’m noticing!

Here’s an excerpt from a report:
“…According to the results released Sunday, the ball bounces 5 to 8 percent lower than typical leather balls when dropped from 4 feet. It also found that the new ball bounces 30 percent more erratically.”

What concerns me is that we don’t have great shooters, so any slightly off shots or rattles appear to be not falling in.

Dun was better than his usual self. At least we got that.

That starting five you have is great but there would be less fire off the bench. Maybe Wagner would get some playing time then and maybe he would do more than dun. With him, Pietrus, Biedrins and Diogu coming off the bench to add energy, that would be a good lineup

I was at the game, good job by Pietrus! If they can get on a fast break after the other team SCORES, that's impressive.
