> Joel Embiid on him defending the perimeter if teams go 5-out against him: “I'm better than any bigs when I really try."
Joel’s quotes are so funny lol. He’s a great perimeter defender, but I’m not sure I’d qualify him as the best among big men, that’s probably Bam. What do you guys think, where would you rank Embiid?
Note: This started on Monday April 12th and is resolved.
Update: Suspects shot at cops at 16th and Russ (just south of football field), cops shot back. Chase started in
National City Ocean Beach with National City PD included. Cops are on Park Blvd with a command post in front of McDonalds, SWAT callout. Probably best to avoid Park for a while.
9:10pm: This sounds like it was an attempt to arrest a fugitive with the US Marshals. The car went off the embankment
on Park someplace.
9:14pm: Sounds like the cops have one guy at gunpoint.
9:17pm: Apparently there's people inside a dumpster. Male and female, went in both holding hands. Snipers are deployed, I really hope these folks give up.
9:27pm: Guy at gunpoint is probably unrelated. But he's still laying there.
9:40pm: Cops are just trying to get the guy who jumped the fence in the middle of all this (and was at gunpoint) out. (oh this post is stickied, wow).
Looking like there might be a potential body in the dumpster. (This doesn't now seem to be the case).
10:48pm: Cops are about to make bullhorn announcements.
10:57pm: Bullhorn announcements starting. Hand grabbing the other lid of the dumpster to try to close it and move trash around.
11:19: Suspect is vocally responding with "I'm not going back." Also, witness confirms he still had the rifle when running through campus and also possibly has body armor.
11:25: Cops reviewing downlink video confirming he's still armed with a AR-15 platform rifle, a 30 round magazine and possibly a pistol.
11:37: Throw phone has been delivered. Female says she'll come out if she's given water.
11:53: Still talking but suspect is agitated by the robot. Suspect hung up the phone on them.
12:25am: They are on the phone still with the negotiators. Cops have time on their side in this situation so there's no telling how long this may take. I'm sure we'll see the result on the news. I just heard the sirens and helicopter earlier and figured folks would want to know what was going on. But I'll sign off for now and hope that it ends peacefully. If I hear something real soon, I'll update again.
6:44am: Still ongoing. However, they've now switched to an encrypted channel so everyone is really going to have to wait for the news to report on this.
8:30am: As you probably know, male suspect is dead from being shot by police. Female is alive.
You've probably noticed already that to complete the perimeter in this week's Shop SWAGO, you need to enter a sweepstakes that costs 25SB per entry. So why should you bother, when completion only pays 25SB?
SB you earn from SWAGO count towards your daily goal. So if you think you might need some last-minute SB to make goal sometime this week, go ahead and fill all the perimeter spaces EXCEPT the sweepstakes and only enter if you actually need the extra SB to get your daily goal bonus and maintain your streak.
Why not just finish the perimeter right away and wait to submit it? Because while you're waiting, you're down 25SB, and there's always a chance that something unforeseen could come up that prevents you from submitting your board in time.

Please find enclosed One (1) Weekly Trivia Thread. This is the place to discuss:
I know that Rim Protection is more important to a team than Perimeter Defense but why exactly is it more important?
> League sources tell The Athletic that the Jazz are in the market for a defender — a perimeter defender, to be more specific. The Jazz would also like that player to be an above-average shooter, if possible, as shooting is the dominant skill of the roster in its entirety. And that’s where things get more difficult. The Jazz aren’t looking for a surefire rotation guy. They are happy with their rotation, happy with their chemistry and happy with the direction the season is going.
> If the Jazz do bring someone in, they want a player who can contribute situationally. Someone who can defend for 10-15 minutes against the NBA’s best perimeter players, at least one of which they are almost guaranteed to run into once the postseason starts.
> Is there the possibility of a bigger acquisition? That’s possible, but unlikely. At the same time, the Western Conference is as wide open as it’s been in almost a decade. The Los Angeles Clippers are very good — maybe even great — but not unbeatable. The Los Angeles Lakers are injury-ravaged, and are going chunks of the season without Anthony Davis and now LeBron James. The rest of the conference is pretty much up for grabs.
Who do you guys think the Jazz could possibly get? I'm wracking my brain at the possible 3&D candidates and feel like most have been moved already or are way above the Jazz's budget.
He has the quickest hands in the league, and while he isn’t the longest contestor he still has freakishly long arms for his height, and one of the best abilities to stay in front of his man maybe ever.
and post it on r/nba.
and btw F nba.com for its dpoy ladder
I’m so tired of watching a center go off against us because we give them a easy mismatch every time
PJ dozier has the 33rd best Defensive rating (102.7) in the league amongst all qualifying players (I know it's a team stat).
Players shoot the following from these ranges when guarded by PJ -
0 - 5 ft (62%)
5 - 9 ft (41%)
10 - 14 ft (39%)
15 - 19 ft (35%)
20 - 24 ft (40%)
25 - 29 ft (31%)
Some individuals matchups (4 + FGs this season defended by PJ)
As the title states the game is amazing and has tons of potential, BUT the green fog in the evolved areas is awful. Put a perimeter of the fog around an area but once you enter the area it should just be a regular look to the environment.
