Says the good folks at Hardwood Paroxysm, its not just about getting good lucks for your own guys, but denying good looks on the other end [well, duh, but check it out]. Fwiw, the Spurs are good-good. The Heaties, Thunder, and Paper Clips are on good O and no-so-bad D [no surprise either]. An anomaly are the Fakirs, who are good-good but making that into wins.
And how fare the C's this season on selection? At the date of HP's posting, they have fallen out of the good D, bad O quadrant to bad - bad (right down there with the Mavs). This may be changing though. Between the he efforts of Avery B and Courtney Lee on the wing, Jason Terry doing his thing off the bench in his preferred role and PP/KG rolling one, they may be inching their way to good/good*.
But don't take my word for it. See the whole article at Hardwood Paroxysm
*would this imply the C's were not effective with Rondo at the helm while leaking at the sieve? Not at all. Ain't going there. No sir. Not me.
