As someone that never played basketball in a formal setting (just pickup games all my life) - I'm poor watching off the ball defense.

When I watch the NBA or the college game - my eyes tend to follow the ball instead of putting focus on how guys are positioning themselves away from it. So I don't know much by my own eyes concerning who in the NBA is a good off the ball defender.

Re: Your NBA confessions, what don't you know?

I have a hard time reading offensive plays (non iso or pick and roll) in real time. Took me forever to learn what the **** was the triangle O (thanks YouTube), I still don't really get what the Princeton offense is exactly and any other popular offense. People talk a lot about a type of offense and I am clueless as to what that looks like. Would never be able to pick an offense out of a police line up.

Besides, Isos, Pick and Rolls and Triangle O.

It's a turnover, yeah. I was surprised the first time I saw that.

Re: Your NBA confessions, what don't you know?

BTW, what ever happened to territorial draft picks?

When did it start? When was it abolished? Why?

Toronto needs to get dibs on Wiggins.

Re: Your NBA confessions, what don't you know?

Territorial picks were eliminated in 1966 because the league was starting to get national recognition... even though national popularity didn't really come until a few years later.

Re: Your NBA confessions, what don't you know?

If anyone is a coach or has a great understanding I would love an article or a video or something explaining what offenses do well against what defenses.

Like triangle is better against blah etc. I do subscribe to bballbreakdown on youtube. And while he is informative sometimes I feel he is too nitpicky and specific and can't just say that a play was lucky or it was a great play and the shot just didn't go in.

also mid reading a coaching book but good lord is it full of confusing stuff.

Does that count as your "what you don't know" confession?

Re: Your NBA confessions, what don't you know?

I have no idea what TS%, eFG% and PER are. I know the concept of what they are (for instance PER is supposed to be a single metric to tell you how good a player is) but I don't know details. Everytime I say that someone either tries to educate or link me, and I gloss right over it.

I guess I'm saying I don't know and don't care.

I don't even get PER (yeah I am that not ****ing interested in those stats)

It would be great to really understand this stuff one day though because I am sure it is soo flawed or its fundamental is a huge MAYBE. Hell I've seen people use all those percentages to show how Kevin Johnson was better than Magic Johnson. **** THAT!

Does anyone who lurks around here have any answers to these?

Re: Your NBA confessions, what don't you know?

I had no idea Royal Ivey was still in the NBA much less averaging 11 mgp.

I also really don't even try to understand contract details. I compare how much a player gets to another player and can tell who is over/under paid, but as far as ins and outs of the financial side, I know nothing...and don't really care too.
