When we went 16-1 in the post season back in 2001, Derek Fisher shot over 40% from 3 (over 50% in some series). Steve Kerr, John Paxson, Ron Harper, BJ Armstrong....these guys all benefit from having played in the triangle because all they had to do was dribble up the court, read the defense and then spread the floor from the corners.
Steve Nash is the biggest shooting weapon at the PG position in the league. If we get him as many open looks as Fisher often got, then LOOK OUT. Gary Payton was a great SCORING point guard, but he was never really a spot up shooter or accurate from the outside. His skillset was not a match for the triangle. Steve Nash is one of the most accurate shooters of all time, he can THRIVE in an off ball, spread the floor role as the triangle point guard.
The End is nigh. Time for a total Cut and Shuffle. Kobe contract was a mistake...time to avoid making more. The future is here, whether we want it to be or not. An era is over, but for the death rattle, and it's time for the cycle to begin anew. Growth and change are scary and painful, but alas...nothing worth achieving comes easily.
