We Don’t Need Roads, We Need 3 Goggles (Friday Show Thread)

roads

Good morning, dear KSR listeners, and welcome to the Friday Show Thread brought to you by two guys standing next to the Delorean. Today, I will be joining Matt, Shannon, and the other Drew for a fun-filled morning of Kentucky basketball discussion and I plan to make it a no nonsense kind of show. Strictly business. No gobbledygook or poppycock.

You can still join in on the fun by calling (502) 571-1080.

Topics include:

— Souf Carolina

— Stacey Poole down to four schools

— Office space at the Herald-Leader for sale

— Adding 50 lbs. before May 1st

    If the politicians are going to force us to play ul, they should be forced to ensure that all facilities are equal. That way, UK would have to get a new arena, like the Yum center!

    Hey Matt, I listened to the podcast this morning and why do you appear to have something against Murray State. I was born a CATS fan but I have undergraduate and graduate degrees from Murray. You know how excited you were that Transy was playing UK well that’s how those of us who went to other schools would feel. I know being from Eastern Kentucky you know how it feels to sometimes be “left out” of the state. Here in the far Western Kentucky area we always feel like that some in the “golden triangle” think Kentucky ends at Owensboro. Love the show!

    NCAA Basketball Power Rankings
    1

    Last Week: 1 Syracuse Orange (16-0)
    As a freshman, Fab Melo was laughably foul-prone. He drew 7.3 whistles per 40 minutes played, while blocking a pedestrian (at least for a 7-footer) 8.8 percent of opponents’ shot attempts. But no one is laughing at Melo this year. The Orange’s Brazilian-born center is making a noticeable defensive impact, and the gap between his fouls per 40 (4.6) and his block percentage (15.5, which ranks second nationally) is immense.

    That doesn’t mean he can’t improve, though. When his fouling habits are plotted alongside those of elite shot-blockers from other ranked teams — Kentucky’s Anthony Davis, Louisville’s Gorgui Dieng and North Carolina’s John Henson — we see that Melo averages the quickest first foul, at around 28:40 left in the game.

    Dieng has bigger problems, as he’s the quickest to foul Nos. 2 and 3. While Davis can be prone to a quick first foul, he’s adept at delaying Nos. 2 and 3. And Henson is a master of whistle-avoidance; his average time of foul No. 2 is later than Melo and Dieng’s No. 3.

    Next three: 1/7 vs. Marquette, 1/11 at Villanova, 1/14 vs. Providence

    2

    Last Week: 3 Kentucky Wildcats (14-1)
    It’s flattering that the charting of Kentucky’s defensive efficiency with and without Anthony Davis in this space inspired not one but two (!) full-length reaction pieces on Basketball Prospectus over the holidays. I had no intention of making this a running feature/lightning rod in the Power Rankings, but there now seems no choice but to continue.

    (To recap: A chart was presented showing that backup center Eloy Vargas was a good defender in limited minutes, followed by another chart that showed that UK was slightly — very slightly — more efficient at defense when Davis was off the floor, which flew in the face of the “eye test” that suggests Davis is one of the greatest college defenders we’ve seen in years. This left the whole thing open to a non-stathead misinterpretation of “Eloy Vargas > Anthony Davis,” and among the statheads, generated some thoughtful finger-wagging and Venn-diagramming about the contextual use of plus-minus stats in player evaluation. Many valid points were made. Perhaps the Power Rankings should come with a disclaimer that, given the available blurb-space — which I already tend to stretch to such silly heights that whatever good-design intentions SI had with HTML are destroyed — there is not going to be room to fully explore all sides of every issue. Interesting things are presented as launching-off points. In the case of the now infamous Davis Chart, it seemed worthwhile to present the fact that when he was on the bench, UK was still holding its own. It was presented as a “strange phenomenon” … and it sparked a worthwhile enough discussion that it might as well keep going.)

    The updated defensive-efficiency +/- numbers have UK allowing 0.818 PPP with Davis on the floor, and 0.861 PPP with him off, for a small benefit of 0.043 PPP. The big-game numbers, though — against Kansas, UNC, Indiana and Louisville — are really starting to line up with the Oh-My-God-Davis-Is-Some-Super-Alien-Version-of-Marcus-Camby eye test. That should be a relief to everyone. In those four games, the Wildcats have allowed 0.884 PPP with Davis, and 1.139 PPP when he’s on the bench. That’s a massive gap of 0.255 PPP, or 17.6 points over the course of a normal-tempo UK game with/wihout Davis. Pretty stunning to consider — but remember to consider it in context, and with caution.

    Gaining 50 lbs is not a smart idea. I played soccere in college, was in great shape my entire life. After 25, I started gaining weight. I am 35 lbs over my playing weight these days. I don’t have bad eating habits, I work out 2-3 times a week, but I have a desk job, much like Drew does.

    It is hard to take that weight off. So, unless Matt wants to pay you for 90-120 days while you work out 8 hours a day to take it off I think it is a bad idea. It is demoralizing to feel the way those pounds will make you feel!!

    Don’t do it!!

As happy as we were to land Calipari is how happy they are that he is GONE, which should say something. As always, Jeff Goodman doesn’t have the slightest clue of what he’s talking about.

    The old fashioned way is diet and excercise…not going under the knife Matt! If he gains the weight he will be wearing sweatpants or ZUBAZZ pants all the time…..tell him to ask the Big EZ Zach if 50 falls off easy?

    Everybody up here in the ‘Nati knows to avoid those Jesuit kids, they are all gangstas. You can’t drive thru campus without seeing at least 4 people in process of being jumped into gangs.

    Why did you just misquote RealityCheck, Matt? The Ryan Lemond line was the knockout punch! You’re soft, man.
