The NBA is now in the three-pointer era. As long as halftime, all tactics are for the preparation of three-pointers. This kind of game does lack confrontation and blood, but the score is indeed getting higher and higher. Let’s not talk about it. Let’s just say that 10 years ago, we often saw stars back in singles in games, but now we almost can’t see them. Now it’s really confusing to shoot or free throws. I’ll tell you today. the reason.
Speaking of the masters of back-up singles, I won't talk about it in the ancient times, just say that there are really many after the new century. Tracy McGrady, Anthony, Kobe, Wade, and now James, they all have strong post-back singles skills. Inside Yao Ming, Duncan, Randolph, Jefferson, all have delicate skills, watching their offense really feels a lot of experience.
It stands to reason that after so many years in the NBA, players are getting better and better, and their skills should be more comprehensive. As a result, back-up singles are almost invisible. We can occasionally see them in James, Leonard, and DeRozan, and now they are back. If you score a single goal, you can really qualify for the top five goals. There are many reasons for this, the most important of which are the following three.
1: The pace of the game is fully accelerated. An attack takes 24 seconds. If the player is allowed to hit from the back of the ball to the shot, it will take at least 5 seconds, which consumes a lot of time and conflicts with the small ball game. Especially after only 14 seconds of the second attack, there is no extra time for you to play back.
2: Player offensive skills are simplistic. Regardless of how easy it is to average 30 points per game, it is easy to get high scores. A true kaleidoscope offense requires veterans like Anthony, Durant and James. Young players rely more on shooting. The star now scores 30 points. It is estimated that he will have to score 5 for 3 points and 7-8 free throws, which is really too little.
3: Back-up singles requires high overall physical fitness for players, and they have strong confrontation. Otherwise, it is not because of the deformation of the action that they encounter a strong defense. There are also changes in footsteps, and the combination of true and false moves. These are all tests of the players' personal skills and physicality. In the end, they have to throw the ball. Many players in active service cannot do this.
It’s not difficult for the current players to score 10 three-pointers in a single game, and 50 points in a single game. There are fewer back-up singles because of the change in play style and the decline in player skills. This is really helpless!
