it makes sense if its the seed for something bigger, like i hope this development team turns into a program and then ultimately an academy for younger players so they can be in a situation thats thinking more long term rather than the win now hs/aau scenes thatre bad for players skill and physical development, nba already runs academies like that overseas, and its the standard practice for euro soccer tho those academies are run by the teams rather than the leagues

noticed they said the development team will be playing vs those international academies for some of their game, no doubt the nba has thought a lot abt doing a usa basketball academy for hs age players

if we had these the ball brothers might have normal jump shots lol

lag∞n, Friday, 17 April 2020 14:28 (one year ago) link

yeah it really needs to turn into a true feeder/development system or every guy is going to be this anthony edwards kid from georgia taking crazy stepback 3s and shooting under 30%.

guys hitting college age w all sort of injuries and bad medical care is a big issue too, greg oden mightve had a career under a different system

lag∞n, Friday, 17 April 2020 14:49 (one year ago) link

Yeah it does seem like things go wrong in high school but otoh if you’re genetically predisposed to injury it would crop up then quite often

Matt Armstrong, Friday, 17 April 2020 18:31 (one year ago) link

wld think just having access to good trainers medical staff etc from any early age + not being over played by coaches only concerned with winning wld have great benefit

it seems to me that kids who are still growing need a different training regime from those who have attained their full height. concentrating exclusively on bulking up with ever-stronger muscles when your tendons and ligaments are still adapting to new growth seems like a recipe for overstraining weak connective tissues. this is a big problem for youth baseball pitchers, so the rules put in strict limits on pitch counts.

I was reminiscing on the career of new Nuggets GM Calvin Booth and found this Murder

Matt Armstrong, Sunday, 19 April 2020 17:29 (one year ago) link

huh, i haven't thought of calvin booth in a decade, didn't realize he'd had some front office jobs.

yeah blast (dunk) from the past

lag∞n, Sunday, 19 April 2020 18:24 (one year ago) link

I also had forgotten that Calvin Booth once had 10 blocks in 17 minutes

i'll always love footage of dunleavy getting done dirty

Spottie, Monday, 20 April 2020 04:19 (one year ago) link

Dunleavy made the funniest facial expressions and always seemed to be tackled in some fashion each game

Is there more about this proposal? Would they jump into the playoffs?

DJI, Thursday, 30 April 2020 00:51 (one year ago) link

i think i read that the players will need a month to get back in shape.

Spottie, Thursday, 30 April 2020 00:59 (one year ago) link

simmons and russillo were saying that teams have an incentive to get to 70 games b/c otherwise they'll have to refund some of the money they get from the local sports networks. right now teams are between 63 and 67 games played.
