    he doesn't seem to know how or want to run into the paint n seal his position, instead he floats near 3pt line and even gets pushed out to the 3pt line when he finally gets the ball...i saw multiple times where bam did the opposite and rim run right into the paint. There was 1 sequence where AD got ball at the high post while being defended by Lowry and did absolutely nothing to force mia to double and lowry eventually just tabs ball out of his hands

    let's trade him. miracle he averages 25/12 while being possibly the most feared defensive player on the planet with so much beta. just too much beta. i'd like to see him physically mount bam the next time, just to show dominance.

    if kyle lowry poked the ball away from me, i'd have straight up bitten him in the face/neck. but that's just how i roll. i don't understand submission; just not in my dna.

    edit: btw, i'm watching the replay right now, and AD is sealing guys and being missed, then having to go get the ball on secondary action. every time he catches, his man is in place behind him and two guys have feet in the paint. when a smaller/quicker guy is on you and two guys are behind him, your only option is over the top. not sure what all the complaining is about, tbh.

    What do you think about his jump shooting?

    Trying to see if there was a change in mechanics between the bubble and now? Have you noticed anything?

    i haven't. but i''m going to try watching more closely. i have no idea why he forgot how to shoot. can't help but think it will return at some point.

    when he played in NO, i feel like the defense miami was throwing at him would have resulted in a 40 point game on the strength of 17 footers over small guys, but maybe my memory is off.

    i know he kicked our a**** up and down the floor every time we played them, and he did so scoring basically everywhere but the three point line.

    likes the the left elbow, and we get him the ball there a lot.

    why we keep giving him the ball outside the arc is beyond me.

    i see that folks like to vent their spleen on specific guys. lebron shoots way too many lazy threes, but his thread isn't full of this kind of junk.

    This, I think it also attributes to him taking/making a couple more 3s back in NO due to having more shots.

    Yeah it baffled me why in the world he would take 3 pt shots at times, if we need a Hail Mary my first option wouldn't be AD but it scream politics to me.

    ok, i went back and watched it all, and i have no clue what the AD whiners are talking about, quite frankly. i thought he looked like the best player on the floor, on both ends, for either team, pretty much all game long.

    the suggestion that adebayo got after him is ludicrous, and i think even adebayo would agree, tbh. he went at AD like 7 or 8 times, all but two of which ended with him neither him nor his team scoring, and his two successes were (beta alert!) 12 foot jumpers that he often misses.

    finally, if AD had gotten the same respect from the officials that adebayo got, he'd have had 4-6 more FTAs, too.

    anyway, AD was not at all a problem in that game and was really the only reason we weren't blown out in the third, imo.

    What a bunch of baloney. Can’t be true. As @KareemtheGreat33 says he’d have to have his wussy a** close to the basket for those numbers to be real. :swear: :giggle: ;)

    He didn't fall a single time in those highlight clips. I like that.
