Off-hand still has contact with the ball, you're not shooting one-handed.

And I meant it only because Kobe has had to deal with this a lot in his 17 year career. He'll have good advice.


I doubt the pinky finger of the offhand is going to affect the shot as much as you say. If it was the index or middle finger, then you'd have a point.

If he does have trouble, then yes, Kobe and Perkins can help him to adjust.

Anything affecting your hand is going to take a toll on your shot. Obviously out of all the fingers, the pinky finger on your off-hand is probably the least :man10: but anything is going to cause some discomfort.

Not a good game. Fumbled too many passes on offense. But worked on D even though Nowitzki burned him quite a few times.

He shouldn't attack/try to create off the dribble until he works on his handles ... I've seen this exactly same TO from him countless times

not sure which game you watched...

Dirk scored 30 and most were not against MWP....he scored countless times on Clark and Jamison.
I like Clark and I don't think he hurt us but he certainly didn't have a good game. 6p / 6reb isn't a good game for him on offense and his man scoring 30 isn't good on defense.

In defense of Clark and MWP, it IS Dirk. Dirk when on is unguardable. (word?)

It wasn't a good game in general, but there was some nice moments.

He actually challenged Dirk for a little while. It was pretty impressive. But then again he also was schooled a few times which was even more impressive. :man10:

Wel he bobbled the ball but he has to adjust to his finger injury. Dirk is also a tough cover, and Metta was just better at pushing him out on the catch which is how Odom, Stephen Jackson, and Bowen would play him too

Wait are you talking about the Slam Dunk Competition Contestant Kenneth Faried? :man10: :man10: :man10:

The man is one of the most athletic people in the game right now with a constant motor.

Much easier said than done.. and a lot easier said by an armchair analyst. Andre Miller has mastered the pump fake, using his body, and general "old man moves" BECAUSE he's not athletic.. if anyone's going to bite on a pump fake, it would be on an Andre Miller pump fake.

^^looks like he forgot the sarcasm tags
Before long, someone recognized Phil Jackson sitting in the front seat, and then the rocks began to fly. Revelers pelted the bus and shook it, mocking the Lakers at their lowest moment.

I'm always appreciative of his selfless play, along with his constant hustle and energy but we can't afford for him to be turning it over five times in one half. He came in for Jamison in the second and didn't pout, he got right back to work and helped us clean up some boards. Had Jamison been able to hit the broad side of a barn, I'm not so sure he would have gotten much burn in the second half. But the benching did seem to settle him down a bit.

Yeah, I appreciate this kid's work, but last night was the first time I've seen him try to play outside of himself. I'll forgive it because he's young and I know he just wanted to do great in our biggest match-up.

But next time he's got to stick to what got him here: rebounding, defense, and hard work. Not attacking the basket with a defender in front of you or trying to post up anybody.

5 Turnovers. My goodness. He was so frustrating to watch in that 1st quarter. Overall, I did like his activity, cutting, and rebounding. Even with his struggles, he still had 13 pts, 11 rebounds. Cut the turnovers out and we'll be good....
