    If every shot we take is not a three pointer this year we are going to have some very angry fans. Media members Locke and Larson have been preaching this for years. Lets go all in. Analytics or BUST. Who is with me !!!!!

    Jazz just need to master this move to make sure they can get behind the line.

    Soon analytics will say we need to take half court shots. No one will guard them.

    One step at a time first three pointer or Bust.

    Food for thought...Locke preached last year the advantages we had with Crowder and others taking threes. Now he is spitting out numbers where they actually were awful from behind the three point line. Were Locke and Larson being disingenuous preaching propaganda instead of truly reading the numbers.

    Would we have went further in last years playoffs if we played like a regular team without over emphasizing the three?

    If you're playing pick up ball and are playing by 1's and 2's and shoot anything but a 3 (2 in this case) you're an idiot.

    Even if you can't make threes? Come on should Rudy shoot threes?

    Is Rudy playing a lot of pick up ball. If yes, I'd say hell yeah, let em fly, big fella.

    I don't care what anyone says, this is a travel. He moves both feet twice without a dribble.

    Now he's got that one legged **** he's worked on this summer too.

    100% travel. Funny how he mostly does legal step backs but then once every 10 or so times he throws in double step back which refs do not call. If I where him I would double step back all the time until it starts getting called.

    It is too bad the league didn't clear up if this was a travel in the offseason. If I'm a player not even a star. I'm doing it forcing the refs to call it.

    So, you play pickup behind the line. Seems boring way to play. Might as well just shoot around by yourself. I occasionally will shoot a trifecta in a pickup game. But, that is not my forte I'd rather drive.

    I don't play pick up anymore. I'm just saying that if the analytics are in favor of NBA team's to shoot the three then they are even more in favor of pick up ball going by ones and twos.

    Makes sense.
    To explain it further for those who don't get it, 2 points is twice as much as 1 point which is often the way scoring is done in pick up ball.
    3 points isn't twice as much as 2 points which is how the scoring is done in the NBA. Add in the fact that you typically don't shoot free throws in pick up games and it's even a greater strategy to shoot only 3's in pick up ball.
