    Default What's up with Ronnie's Offense?

    Anybody know on this one? Seems like his O has been off since Carlisle benched him for skipping down the floor in the Dallas game.

    Is it just me?

    Skipping down the floor in the Dallas game??

    **

    Besides, he's had at least 2 good scoring outings since after the Mavs game ( @Spurs, Atlanta)

    "skipping down the floor"

    I have no idea what you are talking about.


    Teams have made some good adjustments. They are playing him to go left, are playing him to shoot left in the lane and they are ready to help when Ron starts driving. Plus the Pistons, Nets and Spurs are three of the top defensive teasm in the NBA.

    Ron also sprained his thumb, that might hurt his long range shooting.


    Ron does not need to nor should he try to carry the Pacers offensively, he is better when he is aggressive but stays within the offense.

    I thought Ron took about 4 or 5 questionable (ok, they were bad) shots last night. Seemed like he was jacking up some long, quick shots at the beginning of a possession when we really needed to run the clock and get some good looks. Granted, he does this about every game . . . but they're still ill-advised.

    Ron does take some bad shots every game. I don't think it is out of selfishness, I think he just gets carried away and he likely thinks he is going to make every shot he takes.

    He plays so hard and is so good defensively, the coaching staff probably can live with a bad shot from time to time. (plus Ron hits some "bad shots" often)

    Seems to me he has been settling for a lot of jumpers lately.
    The best exercise of the human heart is reaching down and picking someone else up.

    Yeah that is what I noticed to

    Ron is most effective when he is driving and being physical down low
    I think his outside shot compliments those area's of his game...but they should be his first option, not taking jumpers
