2010-10-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Kevin, Listening to the Utah interview you clearly have some different win projections than Schoene. Can you give us your major differences with Schoene
(lennyd from Portland)
I think my biggest differences are most everybody's biggest differences. I think the Lakers will be better because focusing strictly on regular-season performance does them a disservice. I'm not convinced Golden State will be as good as fast as the numbers say. One that hasn't gotten a lot of attention is Houston slipping back from last season's record, and I just don't see any way that's possible with a full season of Kevin Martin and Yao Ming. In the East, I have a hard time seeing Atlanta completely slipping out of the playoffs unless things get ugly and they make a move because of the money they have already committed to Joe Johnson and might commit to Al Horford. Boston is in a similar position to the Lakers, though I think you'd be hard-pressed to make the argument that they can win 50 games this season. (Kevin Pelton (Basketball))
2010-03-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)When do the wheels fall off of Joe Johnson's career? He's in a bad grouping of players who have played 25k minutes through 9 seasons. Please tell me that there's better options out there for my Bulls at the 2 guard for the next 3 seasons.
(Kyle Bunga from Chicago)
If you haven't read Kevin Pelton's piece (http://basketballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=945) on the future value of this year's free agents, do yourself a favor. As Kevin notes, wing players tend to drop value in their early 30s. I think Johnson will have value for a few years, but not for max money. No way. He should be, at best, the fourth option for the Bulls and, again, not for max money. (Bradford Doolittle (Basketball))
2010-02-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Joe Johnson a better fit tha Kevin Martin?
(scott from Chicago)
Johnson's age is certainly a concern, as BlogABull recently pointed out (http://www.blogabull.com/2010/2/8/1300945/what-can-we-expect-from-joe-johnson). On the upside, he's a year younger than Ray Allen was when he signed his last contract, and Allen has ended up OK. He matches Rose better than Martin. (Kevin Pelton (Basketball))
2008-05-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Why did the Celts have such difficulty with the Hawks? Was it a flaw that the Cavs can similarly exploit?
(krissbeth from JP, MA)
After thinking about that series from every angle I can come up with, I'm ready to chalk up the Hawks' unlikely performance to a bunch of good athletes playing overhead before a pumped up home crowd. That's not very analytical, I know. The crux of my thinking is that if the Hawks had really found some sort of fatal flaw in the Celtics defense--because there really wasn't much variability in the C's offense between the two cities--then they would have been able to exploit it at least to some extent in the games in Boston. The Celtics pounded the Hawks by an average of 23 points per game at home. That says a lot more about the respective quality of the teams than the three wins Atlanta eked out.

That said, what Atlanta did against Boston in those home games was to break down the Celtics defense into a series of one-on-one matchups. That shouldn't have worked as well as it did against a team that plays team defense as well as Boston but it did. Joe Johnson and Josh Smith were able to take their defenders off the dribble and get to the line. The Cavs don't play that way. They give the ball to LeBron James and either A) spread the floor or B) run someone out to run a pick-and-pop. Boston does a great job of defending these strategies. James will adapt to the Boston defense better than he did in Game 1 but it's a tough matchup for him. So, no, I don't expect to see much carry over for Boston from the Atlanta series. (Bradford Doolittle (Basketball))
