Great vs Over-rated.

Postby irishmark » May 22nd, 2015, 8:48 am

Last nights final seven seconds showed the difference between great players and over-rated players.

James Harden (A great player) is double teamed, loses control of the basketball and gets off a pass to Dwight Howard at the top of the key. Howard has a clear path to the basket in a one on one situation with 4 seconds left but, he couldn't get the ball back to Harden fast enough.

If the past greats had the same situation, Bird passes to Kevin McHale, Kevin's putting it in. Magic passes to Kareem, Jabbar dribbles into the lane and buries the sky hook. Howard was afraid to fail. So he passed it back to Harden who had no chance.

A great player makes the play. Howard is over-rated.

Oh, yeah. I know. That is why I put it inside the quotation marks.

Spot on I-Mark

That why I continually tell the youngsters the NBA is shell of it's former self.

Atlanta down to Cleveland 0-2 game tied and 104 and you have the last shot and you're launching a 3 PT SHOT with 18.7 to run a play?

Sounds like these players had Mike Greeny of Mike and Mike in their huddle as he sold on the 3PT is most important shot in NBA it's game changer. :roll:

Right LeBron has missed over 50 of them throughout the playoffs. :roll:
