I think there’s more to it than the officials. He’s led the entire league in FTA and FTM the last 5 seasons. He’s officiated completely different than the rest of the league.

But he does control the ball for most of every shot clock.

Specifically, in the last 3 years he has had the 2nd, 10th, and 35th highest usage rates of ALL TIME in a row. I think it’s more that coupled with his style than conspiracy. 

 

Edit: To encompass the full 5 years, 4 years ago he ranked 77th all time in usage % and 144th all time 5 years ago.

Thoughts and prayers go out to Frank Vogel

Apparently, one of the conditions imposed on Tyronn Lue was that he hire Jason Kidd as an assistant. And now I see that Kidd will be on Vogel's staff. My question: Why didn't the Lakers just hire Kidd as head coach? ... That has become one bizarre franchise.

I get the usage rate. That explains some of it but how does he get these crazy calls season after season. How do you have other all stars questioning how he gets an entirely different set of calls. That’s more than just a usage rate.

Really enjoying the NBA playoffs this year. Why? 1) New teams. Only 2nd time Raptors have been to the conference finals. Bucks last appearance was 2001 and the Blazers was 2000. 2) No LeBron.... Once Durant leaves Golden State the NBA will be wide open. I was so tired of seeing the Super Team in Oakland destroy Lebron.

What a wild lottery. NY and Memphis will continue to be booty and if NO keeps the band together they’ll be really fun to watch at the very least. Poor Bulls too. 

 

Late edit: this is of course if NY doesn’t bring in a huge FA class...which with how inept they are at literally everything, I’ll believe it when I see it.

Big IF with New Orleans but should be interesting. Does Davis still look elsewhere? And could NO lure another star to play with Davis and Zion. Small market, not traditionally appealing but those 2 could make people listen if Davis stays with the supermax.

What if the Knicks get a player do they package the 3 for Davis? RJ Barrett with Zion at the next level would be interesting in a couple of years.

Based on where he might fall, some good spots for Romeo:

#10 Hawks- Trae Young, Collins, #8 pick

#11 Timberwolves- KTA, Wiggy, D-Rose

#14 Celtics-Tatum, Horford, maybe Kyrie, Brad Stevens

#18 Pacers-Vic, home state where he would be loved

#19 Spurs-Pop, DeRozan, Aldridge

Each of those teams have other scoring options. Would give Romeo time to develop. He would probably start on at least 2 maybe 3 of those teams as a rookie.

Shams already tweeted Davis still wants out. Oh well.

I think the Hawks like Huerter as their starter. I would say San Antonio would be a good fit for him to develop and reach his full potential.

Sad to question this, but would Romeo be loved as a pick by the Pacers? I’ve seen a lot of bitter IU fans hating on the kid (not on this site).

Zion has a lot of leverage here if he doesn’t want to play in New Orleans... why would you? Still hasn’t hired an agent could return to Duke (definitely don’t see it happening) but would throw a huge wrench in things if he went and said he won’t play there (trade the pick or don’t draft me). Is he that kind of guy tho?

How much would Dook have to pay for a one year contract? I’m guessing a half mil.
