    KD is a great shooter but horrible ball handler and passer.

    I could almost feel it coming on, we just didn't seem to have a rhythm tonight. We had no answer for Lee Curry or Thompson. Oh well they will bounce back.

    KD is #8 in league in turnovers, two spots behind RW.

    How good should his handles be? He's 6'10". Guys that size usually can't do much of anything besides dunk. The fact he has the range of skills he does is amazing. Expecting him to be Chris Paul is a little much.

    Agreed 100%. I was just simply stating that his ball handling and his passing is not good. People in disbelief should review his turnovers, especially from this year. He tends to pass the ball directly to the opposition. I don't know if he has publicly acknowledged this issue, but it is evident he is aware of the issue and taking steps to rectify it. Regarding his ball handling, it will be hard for him to greatly improve his ball handling skills due to his stature.

    his TOs have been coming down the last three years. He is getting better. IMO though most of his turnovers come from being a little out of control and trying to do to much himself, not from passing to the opposition.

    I absolutely agree with the bold portion. KD's ball handling is just sick for a guy his size, but as I was watching last night's game, I kept noticing how out of control he looks at times. His ability to distribute continues to improve, but there are times where he gets going come hell or high water and it ends with him dribbling off his foot or losing the ball.

    Another concern is KMart's inability to discern where out of bounds is. Lately it seems like we get 1 or 2 turns each game cause of this.

    KD's turnover rate is lower this year when you consider how much more ballhandling he's had to do than in the past. Without Harden, KD will handle the ball much more. His playmaking has been tremendous. Anyone that cannot see he is getting better is blind.
       

  24. #1624
    KD's TOV% is down to 12.9 from 14.0 last year. His career TOV% is 12.3.

    KD is not a bad ball handler, that's just a silly statement. He's not Rajon Rondo, but he's a top non-PG ball handler. His assists are up to 4 PG and his AST% is up to 20.9, both of which blow his previous numbers out of the water.

    Those guys were tired last night...of course they looked sloppy.

    KD is every bit as good of a ball handler as Harden, if not better.

    I would much rather have harden bringing th ball up the court under pressure than durant. I'm not sure if you are maybe combining ball handling and distributing?

    I challenge you (and others) to review his turnovers. You'd be surprised I think.

    Harden has even more turnovers.

    I think something people tend to forget about KD is that he's still a young dude with a lot of time to grow his game. It's hard to think of him in this way because of how dominant he is most of the time. I think as he gets older and gets that old man strenf he'll be even harder to stop, and some of those TOs that happen in traffic will cease too.

    In other news, good article on RW from ESPN:

    Westbrook's physicality, owed to a long and muscular frame, is unlike most other point guards, Perkins said. His approach is also unique, but it does bear some resemblance to that of enigmatic Celtic Rajon Rondo, the center's former floor leader and a player known as much for his surly in-game demeanor as his deft dishes.

    "They definitely different [from other point guards]," Perkins said. "They both some divas. In a good way though."

    Another damn late game. Excited Sunday's is not, but I don't like the afternoon ABC games. Seems like we don't perform well in them..

    Desperately need a win tonight to stay in front of San Antonio. How do they manage to stay so good with a bunch of dinosaurs playing? They're like the oldest team in the league.

    Ha ha, Daniel Orton got 2 T's and got tossed for jawing at another player. There was no camera on Orton as he was leaving the court to see if he said "**** you" to the ref.

    On a related note, I have been skimming this game trying to watch Lamb, and I couldn't help notice that Orton is playing like Shaq of the D League. He had a strong move from the block to spin on his defender and throw down a monster dunk. And he has been drawing double teams and makes the right play.
