Jesus, you people revel in our shiTTy FG% performances.

Clearly, it's more important for this team to get more shots. I've heard Caridi, Huggs, and anyone else with a lick of common sense say the same thing.


Key words being "this team." They need to create more shots BECAUSE THEIR FIELD GOAL PERCENTAGE SUCKS. If they could shoot, they wouldn't need to create more shots. This isn't rocket science.

I guess by "discredited" he meant "hired by the Denver Nuggets to do quantitative analysis."

Let's get this discussion fired up again, even though Mensa isn't here to share his "wisdom."

According to some really smart guy who played basketball at Cal Tech and has a PhD and works for the Seattle Supersonics [EDIT: Correction - he is now the Director of Quantitative Analysis for the Denver Nuggets] performing statistical analyses of what wins basketball games:

Based on statistical analyses, the four most important keys for team success in basketball and their relative weights, in parentheses, are:

Shoot a high field goal percentage (10).
Do not commit turnovers (5-6).
Get offensive rebounds (4-5).
Get to the foul line frequently (2-3).

Teams that consistently win basketball games do at least three of these things well. If a team doesn't shoot well, it better do the other three things very well.


Thus, shooting well is about twice as important as any other factor. But the detractors say "What about defense? Defense wins championships." Not so fast my friend. The basketball genius guy addressed that too:

In the NBA, at least since the 1970's, offense wins playoffs and championships more often than defense. The difference in success between strong offensive teams and strong defensive teams is not large, but the data contradicts the old adage that defense wins championships. I suspect this may be even more accurate at lower levels of basketball where offensive skills are more rare than defensive skills. [On the other hand, in a one-game playoff, it is possible for a team or a critical player to have a bad shooting night, whereas defense may not be as variable].

Whoops!

Here are some other findings from the genius guy that explain why people are frustrated with the team's offense:

Good offensive players are more important than good offensive systems.
(WVU has neither)

Good offensive teams have both inside and outside scoring, however, no single position is key to offensive success. (WVU has neither)

Offensive efficiency is more important than pushing the pace of the game.
(WVU isn't particularly efficient on offense)

Here is the link to an article that discusses the book the genius Cal Tech basketball guy wrote: Getting Out-Mensa'd

Not if you have a good dealer and the right friends. The key is separating the male plants and female plants early.

I feel it's more like a car salesman selling you a new car for $20,000 and having it shipped to the dealership. While en route, the GM calls you at work and says that the sales person gave you too good of a deal on the car, and you'll need to pay another $10,000 before you can pick the car up. In what world can you see that happening?

BTW...did I mention that during our price negotiation, the sales person cleared it with his manager on duty? That's 2 folks who OK'd the sale prior to my purchase.



What does the paperwork that you took home say? Does it say sofa? Or section? Or something else?


It says "quantity -1" and "description - RAF Loveseat". After some additional back-n-forth today, we came to an agreement - price stayed the same, I agreed to drop the half-assed protection plan; full sofa and ottoman to be delivered as agreed. I give the manager credit, he hung in there with me even after I climbed in his ass with both feet...to the point where I actually started our conversation today by offering an apology. For this reason, I decided not to smear this place on the interwebs and won't even rule out giving them more business. It pays to hire good folks.


That is a good result for you. Well done.

Need more information to give a firm opinion. It depends on the substance of your discussion and agreement. For instance, if you offered $x for "the sofa," and they agreed, then they owe you a sofa. If it was for "a section," then you bought a section. It sounds as if you never talked about a section, which makes sense because who buys just a section. Also, the fact that the purchase was final helps you for that same reason. You obviously thought you were buying the whole sofa. The question is whether the sales person indicated it was for the whole sofa, or a section. They probably owe you a sofa, but you are going to have to fight to get it.

This shows a misunderstanding of scientific principles and the difference between fact and opinion. So long as you provide the facts, the manner in which you gathered the facts, and the opinion based on those facts, other people with an understanding of the subject matter can evaluate the data for themselves. It is as transparent as you can be.

Any why are all the other planets warming as well? Do they also have SUVs on Saturn, Mars and other planets?

Seems like the sun is the obvious answer.


Where are the 100% certain facts that support this opinion?

You watch a baseball game and drink two fingers every time a player grabs his junk. I will watch a soccer game and do the same thing. You will be hammered, and I will have had half a pint, including free kicks where players protect the jewels.

Maybe you guys would get more out of baseball if you spent less time staring longingly into crotches and just watch the game?


You mean the 30 seconds of action that interrupts all the spitting and tics?

Baseball sucks. Most in part because it's like watching paint dry.

Just have a rule only there's only 2 jock adjustments per inning per pitcher...that should speed it up.



I agree. Every cup check after that is a balk.

Batters get 2 per at bat. Any more is a called strike.
