an in shape, motivated Ron is scary on D. If he can just shoot consistently well, it's over.

Yes, because that's what he averages for his career. Last year he was horrific at the beginning of the season and that ruined his %. In the playoffs he shot almost 40%.

Dwight and Pau down low, Kobe and Ron outside with Nash doing his part... It's like a Laker wet dream.

Did anyone else watch the episode of Brand X (ep. 5 iirc) where he swapped shirts with Russ? :man10:
He was looking pretty good shape to me! :man1:

lol, were you on comatose during the 2nd half of last season?


No. I think you were. Ron shot 33.1% from 3 after the all-star. Better than the 23.9% prior. Still it's 33.1%. http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/players/333 ... QRABBgPKB4

And yes, Ron needs to hit the gym and practice his 3 ball.

That's quite productive. 14/4/3? 47/33/78%? I'll take it.

Pretty good, and thats when he finally dropped the weight and was in shape. Now he looks leaner and most likely faster so I am excited to see him next season!

Yeah, I mean that's not terrible. Especially for your 5th option. I don't think he'll see that kind of point total every night because during this month he averaged over 11 shots a game. But if he can maintain those percentages at 7-8 shots per game, I think that'd be gravy.

Technically those percentages should go up if he is taking less shots and assuming he is more open than usual, but nothing ever goes according to plan lol

Yeah, I mean you've got to account for rhythm. Ron has maintained that it's been difficult for him to do things offensively here because he's really not a catch and shoot player. Offensively he likes to get into a rhythm and play for himself a bit. I think if he's more aggressive on the court, he'll be fine. I don't mind him attacking the basket or taking those weird midrange shots as long as it's reasonable and within the scope of the offense.

I agree! I feel like we are also gaining a new player for this season since Ron was so bad for 80-90% of the season and really just lit it up towards the end.

I'm definitely hopeful. He looks like he's in terrific shape and we all saw what he was capable of later in the season when he was cut down like he is now. I think he's going to surprise some people. It may not always translate to the box score, but the things he provides defensively are unique in the league. Not to mention, when he's lighter he goes at the rim more... appropriately let's say. :man10:

An in shape Ron who's knocking down 3s would make us have a legit Big 5. Not because I expect him to play like an all-star, but because teams would already have their hands full with our other starters so by default defenses will neglect Ron as if he's Jason Collins.

Hopefully he can make them pay.

i think ron with nash will be better than we expect. the guy shed major weight, got his back thing fixed, and looks really healthy. i think he'll give us 10ppg and the 3 ball will be close to 40% but most likely mid to high 30's.

I think he'll be cutting alot to the basket and if nash finds him he can just use his ridiculous strenth and over power most SF's or at least get fouled. also with all the all stars surrounding him, mwp is the only guy the opposing team can double off of. they'll have to take their chances with mwp and i think he'll make them pay. guys got pride and if people dont respect him and his game he'll make them regret it.

he should a lot of great things in april and i expect even some fast breaks with nash followed with a dunk...minus the elbow after of course.

MWP will be a huge boost for us offensively now and also now that he's lost a ton of weight and is super healthy i think his defense will be elite again and his gain that foot speed he was lacking last year. he still play pretty great defense last sea on...so now that he's lighter and fast BUT still just as strong i think itlll be awesome.

now that ebanks is the back up we have to guys to throw at durant who can definitely bother him with mwp's strength and great defense; or ebanks length athleticism and good defense as well.

MWP is gunna be the 5th option on our starting 5 and is still a great player capable of changing games with a single play defensively or offensively. i like the guy and glad we didnt get rid of him bc he'll be a huge boost for us
