This morning on The Early Birds/Sports 790, Drew Deener catches up with Rick Pitino on the NBA status of Gorgui Dieng, Chane Behanan, and Russ Smith.
The link below pops another link, and then THAT link is the audio.
Ugly presentation, awesome content. Can’t have it all, I guess.
Believe it or not, I had some cool stuff planned for an Oregon video. I decided I was going to do “weekend in review” videos before the tourney started (two games on one highlight), but after the Duke game, I had to throw out Oregon. The Oregon game meant nothing at that point.
Here is how we have rolled through the post season.
Video 1: Big East Tribute
Video 2: NCAA First Weekend
Video 3: Cards over Duke for 10th Final Four
Another great sit down with Adam Lefkoe. Papa Smiff and Papa Siva.
Great ending by the way…
Here is the Big Russ Barbershop video from the Big East Tourney
We have hit 7 post season games, so I am kicking out a TVT to show how this team has re-defined itself. Literally overnight they have turned their season long production averages upside down.
TVT: net positive production per minute. Add up the good stuff, subtract the bad stuff, divide by minutes played. Breaks every player down to a single number – “When you play for 1 minute, you gain the cardinals “x” net positive contributions per minute. If you had a score of 1.0, that would be 1 net positive stat per minute. that is hard to do. .40, means you contribute a net positive stat in just over 2 minutes.
Duke TVT - Gorgui blows Plumlee out of the water.
People missed that if they looked on at partial statlines. Gorgui almost produced the same stat line as Plumlee’s, exceeded in some parts, but in only 25 minutes (vs. 39 for Plumlee).
He was Louisville’s most productive by minute played – not even close. Siva and Smith – the starts by most accounts were 4th and 5th. Insane production by the team people.
