    Not that anybody cares, but my first post on a basketball message board was a scouting report on KA when we signed him.

    I know I'm a few days late on this, but here's my take...

    KA was an okay starting PG in the NBA.

    Very overhyped coming out of Georgia Tech (between Mark Price and Travis Bust.)

    He started out as a shoot-first PG that was quick but not a good penetrator. He was also on the same NJ Nets team as Derrick Coleman (and the late, great Drazen Petrovich), and they were a dysfunctional, underachieving bunch. Noone knew who to blame.

    He evolved into a decent team PG later in his career.

    He is even more fragile than Tinsley. He's only stayed healthy for the entire season once. And he really never played in the NBA playoffs except for one season with Boston. I did the math when he signed with the Pacers, he averaged playing in about 60 games per year (averaged missing 22 games per year).
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    thank's, this was very interesting!

    however, it apppears he played in the play-offs with Portland in 1997, starting all four games against the Lakers. also according to NBA.com's player bio, he had 36 play-off games during his carreer (4 of those with the Blazers and 32 with Boston in one season? ).
    well, we'll see if he's got what it takes. basically we need good court vision from him and good passing. scoring is not so important, - ~10 points per game would do nicely probably (if he manages ~5 or more assists and <2 turnovers, that is )

    Yeah, but four first-round playoff games don't really count as "playoff experience."

    Some of us believe the NBA playoffs don't really start until the second round.

    Situation:
    Game statistics (one of the last Euroleague matches).

    One team has 7 steals.
    Their opponents have 6 turnovers.

    Is it possible in NBA?

    The Pistons had a game in the NBA finals where they committed 4 turnovers as a team if I recall correctly

    Oh, my bad, not clear phrasing.
    Is it possible for a team to have more steals than its opponents turnovers?

    The statistics from that particular Euroleague game are weird. Remind amateur basketball competitions. At least two blocks were stolen from Žalgiris, too.
