    something i don't see that often anymore



    is it me or is this a sight not often seen in the NBA. a point guard calling a play.
    or am i just not paying attention.
    or is it just nostalgia. a case of the past was always better.


    seems like half the plays back in the day there was a play called.

    stockton making sure every single jazz player on the court was on the same page.

    assuming it is is seen less now a day, why is it?

    because it gives the defense time to adjust? defense knowing what play is comming.

    or is it because all plays are dump it down to all so no need for hand signals

    I still see point guards calling plays and directing traffic.

    The Jazz team was together a long time so the offense was able to be very dynamic.

    The point guard role has been diminishing.

    When Stockton was the PG Jerry Sloan called about 90% of the set plays. Stockton just relayed them to the players.

    It was amazing watching John bring the ball up, look at Jerry at what play he should run, and John would execute it. I heard on a radio interview once that Stockton wanted Jerry to call the plays. I don't think I've ever seen that with any other player.

    I see plays called all the time. The fact the PG role has morphed into more of a combo role (generally) kinda sucks, but they do call plays.

    I noticed the last few games that i have not really seen it.
    It feels like stockton did it every single play.

    maybe that.
    but it kinda defined roles.
    coach is the boss.
    pointgurad the floor general
    and depending on what play is called all other 4 players now there roll

    ....the reason you don't see hardly any plays called or run in today's NBA is clearly a result of basketball intelligence or brains. Today's NBA players have about as much brains as a turnip!
    They rely on athletic ability and have throw fundamentals out the window! Best quote to describe your typical NBA player of today's era was the coach for the Bull's. It went something like this: "We called a time out to set up a play for Curry. But I guess the 10,000 times we ran it in practice...weren't enough!"

    When you said "something I don't see that often anymore," I thought you meant a guy who could actually make 50% of his shots. It's amazing guards nowadays are considered good shooting guards or point guards if they make 40% of their shots, especially since defenses are softer.

    High 30's, low 40's is great from behind the arc. But there's no reason guards should be shooting 40% on their 2-PT FG's.
