RE: Reality Check for UNC trolls tonight
- Posted by 903 mens national championships- Posted by The1True. Rodman was an outstanding rebounder and defensive stopper. He had a big effect in preventing the other team from scoring more points that his team, as I alluded to in my post.- Posted by 903 mens national championshipsPoints is all that matters. You have to score more than you opponents in order to win. You can do this by scoring a lot of point (offense) or preventing you opponents from scoring a lot of points (defense). Either way, losing you fourth leading score is going to hurt more that your 9th leading scorer unless that player is a defensive stopper.- Posted by The1
But an individual player can be more important to a team than another player even if he scores fewer ppg. Ever hear of Dennis Rodman?
But if a players is such a defensive force he is more likely that not to be a starter and/or play more that 12 or 18 minutes a game.
What we were discussing here is the effect of the player rotations when you lose key reserves. At least that is what I was discussing.
You implied McDonald was more valuable than Hairston because he scores more points per game. I responded with Dennis Rodman.
Dennis Rodman plays for Carolina. Which "basketball for dummies" edition are you reading? Must have mixed the chapters up! Talk to your cheer card coach!
