    Both you and I predicted "OTHER" for Dyess.

    I really didn't expect him back. :nod:

    He could have easily stayed in Denver with his good friend CB and received his full payout too.

    We are very lucky that he feels like coming back is the right thing to do.

    It shows the type of person he is, compared to a Starbury

    Noticed something strange about Dyess's rebounding.

    Detroit Pistons NBA player pair tandem stats and data from 82games.com

    Tay, Sheed, and Amir all get lower rebounds when paired with Dyess than they do with any other player on the team.

    Per 40 minutes

    Tay- averages 7.7, but only 5.8 with Dyess
    Sheed- averages 8.9, but only 6.3 with Dyess
    Amir- averages 11.7, but only 5.2 with Dyess.


    Conclusion- Dyess is stealing rebounds. Not the worst crime in the world.

    Definitely not as bad as C-Webb stealing assists.

    Tay never boards when he's at the three spot, only when he was playing at the four. When Dyess comes in he moves back to the three and I bet that explains the gap.

    I suspect Sheed plays outside more when Dyess is in the game too. Not sure what's going on with Amir - maybe Dyess is just knocking him aside.

    Appropriating boards with malice.

    One would think that this is obvious to all...guess not. That's OK.

    One of the problems that I have noticed with Amir is that he isn't able to feel comfortable in what I would call: owning a space. Sort of like a crab, both stuck and adventurous in his outside/inside shell environment.

    The key to survival is knowing the collective good and bad of your boundary lines. Youthful excursions are combinations of excitement and the potential death threat of oneself (speaking in a biological sense).

    From a coaching perspective, one approach would be to reason at a cognitive level: don't do this, don't do that, be care of this and when this happens, do this.

    Another coaching level would be to explain by putting this person in a real-life situation of understanding space. This is why I mentioned it would be good (along with other positive team factors) that he be given the opportunity to feel safer from the consequences of his sins, in a more structured setting. This of course, is a direct result of my directional comments on playing zone.

    Just some thoughts on something that might be worth trying.
