NBA SEASON 2019-2020
NBA General Discussion

So I have the 76ers at #1 and the Bucks at #2. I think the difference between #1 and #2 is pretty big.
I know they exist, certain websites use them to make shot charts. But none of those websites that I found also make the actual data available, and thus I cannot create my own shot charts.
I've found data for past seasons games, but the current season they aren't including X,Y locations in their game logs.

I a) don't mean to denigrate their accomplishments and b) don't mean to celebrate early, but I said in days past that Curry is not A.I. and Draymond is not Malone. They work amazingly as pieces of a good team, but they aren't necessarily great at carrying the team when they don't have much around them. The rest of the season will be an interesting referendum on that.
I'll take it one step further. Curry had an astronomical individual performance in 2014, and that eclipsed all the weaknesses of the team and led many to think GSW was all-time great. 2016 Cavs and 2019 Raptors exposed them - Curry is not a grade A superstar, is prone to error, a defensive liability, statistically risky, and NEEDS NEEDS NEEDS Thompson on both ends of the floor to flourish, and they need a legit superstar (Durant).
EDIT: Trae Young out for the rest of the night with a sprained ankle.
I agree with how KD's signing wouldnt allow us to have an objective evaluation of how great core GSW really, but I can say as much that there was a healthy amount of luck and stars aligning for GSW to be hyped as much. Curry is just ever so slightly overrated, Klay is underrated, Green is super elite defensively but, like Curry, has fatal flaws that could lose the game. I recall now as well that the GSW's 2015 playoff run was helped by a lot of Western guards being injured during the playoffs.
Don't get me wrong though, core GSW was a great team. but not one the greatest, even if they went 73-9. 1996-1998 Bulls, 2001-2002 Lakers, heck even 2004 Pistons could have beaten them in a Bo7 series.
He is a smart, but physically weak small defender who is unwilling to sacrifice his body the way small players like VanVleet and Lowry are. I'd say Curry's defense is slightly above average. His defense looks bad in the playoffs because Golden State is always playing really good teams in the final 2 rounds of the playoffs. In the regular season against normal NBA teams Curry's defense is solid ... if unspectacular.
As far as the 2019 Raptors "exposing" Golden State last year? ummm, The Raptors had the best winning percentage against the Western Conference of any team last year. So I guess the Raptors "exposed" the entire Western Conference.
The Clippers are scheduled to start a back-to-back tonight. Leonard is out tonight.
The Raptors, for the first time ever, are getting regular season games placed on the primary SportsNet Ontario or SNO network. This is a big concession by Rogers Media who paid 87 Bazillion dollars for the overwhelming majority of NHL TV rights. The secondary SportsNet channels are called SN360 and SN1. Until this year that is where all Rogers Media Raptors games and NBA games were shown. They did not appear on the main network.
Hockey is on the decline in Canada and this move by Rogers Media is just another sign of it.
