    Awesome. Thank you so much for the lengthy footage. He really is a noticeably crisper passer that Harden and hits the stationary shooter in the numbers at a higher rate, vs sometimes making them bend down, make a step, etc.

    • Pual definitely looking to increase pace vs his Clippers style.
    • Paul went to Pistol his first four possessions...vs options out front. Several other possessions, too, when not fast-breaking. I expect that as a Point of Emphasis for MDA in camp with Paul and Harden.
    • EGo still does that whining look at the ref, even in pick-up.

    Isaiah Taylor Chris Johnson almost lost his contract injuring CP3. It was really quiet with CP3 on the floor.

    all I could see is the terribleness of Ryno on the defense end as well as bricking 3’s....

    Why doesn't Harden play at all?

    He really is the best in the NBA at all the minor details of being a point guard.

    Cmon now don't just single out Anderson.

    Ariza, Luc, and Bobby Brown all shot an airball or hit only backboard too.

    CP3 went like 0-4.

    They look pretty sloppy, lol.
    To be expected.
    Training camp is important, and a fine line.
    Don't overwork, don't injure.
    But have to take it seriously and have a really good feel coming out to start the season nicely.

    Harden is a point guard. Paul is a point god.
