    Default How to get Nationally televised games

    I heard Kerr mentioning that our players felt disrespected because they had the 5th best record in the NBA and only had one Nat televised game so I'm gonna tell them how to get more Nat tv games since its so important to them

    1) DUNK THE BALL!! stop going to the rim like @#$%$. We are getting wayyy too much shots blocked at the basket because guys are just laying in the basketball. George was in the dunk contest, i think maybe he forgot that. Granger you're 6 8 for crying out loud. DUNK THE BALL. HIbbert When your at the rim DUNK THE BALLL, guys when Lebron is chasing you, DUNK THE BALL.


    2)Stop dribbling out 20 seconds of the shot clock at the top of the key.

    3)Hibbert- quit falling down down so much. This guy falls down every possesion

    4) We need to get a real PG this summer. One that can pass on the move.. get the ball in the post, break down the D and hit our shooters, split defenders and finish at the rim,

    5) We need a star, even though you guys may not want to admit it.. we do. Reggie was a STUD. Guys feared him. JO was a star.. So Granger heres your chance to trasform yourself into a star. You were on your way in game 5 (3/4 from 3 pt range). Come out in game 6 and carry your team to a victory

    Granger isn't star material in my mind, and when I say star, I mean possesses a game that attracts viewers. Good player (most of the time), but he's really a fundamental guy, and he's not even the best at doing that.... he's not on Tim Duncan's level of "fundamentalness". He's not flashy, doesn't make nasty moves, not a big dunker, doesn't hit any rainbows, isn't an explosive leaper or olympic sprinter. He's a pretty boring brand of basketball... effective, but boring.

    PG has that star ability in him, but he's not assertive/confident/consistent enough to display it on a regular basis. Yet.

    No one else on our team possesses real "star" material.

    I do agree though that we need a star, because that's who attracts the viewers and thus the national invites.

    PG has been extremely disappointing on the offensive end in my opinion. He's so athletic but you never see him slash to the basket for easy dunks or alleys, he just hangs around on the perimeter. Doesnt play well off the ball imo. He also doesnt finish strong or pass the ball well. Yesterday he had a few unforced errors that were very disappointing. On Defense he has been great, seems to me his confidence on offense is completely gone

    As far as Hibbert falling down, I just think Hibbert doesn't have the best balance, which may be part of why he struggles to get position against shorter and strong opponents.

    I'll bet you a cookie that all 4 of our games against the Heat will be on national TV next year, and that will probably be just the start.

    All 4? I'll take that bet as long as NBATV doesn't count.

    We've definitely earned some national love next year. Whether we actually receive it is another story.
