We're now officially a quarter of the way through the NBA's regular season, giving us ample statistics to scour through and spot some of the more interesting trends around the league. The challenge each week is being able to overlook things such as hot shooting streaks or temporary slumps and narrowing the focus to long-term trends and changes to a given player's game. Take, for example, Minnesota's Kevin Love. Though he's off to quite a big shooting slump to start this season, he's....

LOL. Who mentions Kevin Love in a discussion about posting up?

You're right, K Love has made huge strides in bashing his teams ownership and trying to miss the playoffs every year, in that sense he is light years ahead of Griffin. It's okay though his stats look really cool. ....

Well, I haven't noticed an improved post gm. His J is better. His D is better. But his post game and rebounding has regressed big time. Especially the post game. Vinny and Co seemed to let him get sloppy with his footwork in the post. He still spins when he doesn't have to. And puts himself in bad situations where he's taking some crazy shot. When is he going to see Hakeem? ....

It's all Vinny's fault.

I disagree. The object of your fanboism, AKA General Zod, has regressed this year so far. He's looking worse than last year. ....

Your sarcasm meter seems a bit broken. I know its hard to tell on the internet but in this case it was a bit obvious.... I made the text green to make it easier for you.... I fail to see how BG's post game has regressed considering how he is scoring more from the post than ever before and using his post game even more than before. Keep in mind these facts are posted only a few posts above yours. I guess....

Yellow_Flash_Colorz_PDT_04 A thread about Blake's improved post game draws comments from Vinny-haters and K-lovers. Personally, I have nothing but admiration for the power-forward and coach who have helped bring us the most promising and entertaining team any Clippers fan has ever seen. ....

what head coach taught Shaq his posts moves? Matt Guokas with the Magic? Brain Hill with the Magic? Harris with the Lakers? How about Jackson with the Lakers? What about Kobe? Same? Dirk? Lebron's new post game? Spoelstra? You know nothing about nothing. These players all had a post game before they became pro, or learned on their own in the off-season with people....

you know less than nothing. Vinny is a crap coach. I see some of you are gassed off beating bums. Vinny doesn't have to teach Blake. He needs to demand he post up more. Make it more of the offense. And that's how he will improve. Even if it means losing early in the season, he should be posting up a lot more than he has been. He's basically becoming a role player instead of a superstar becuz of this scrub....

Blake Griffin >>>>>>>>>> Kevin Love. Love sucks at defense and he's a stat-padder with a bad attitude who doesn't make his team better. Overrated. ....

I think BG has shown tremendous improvement this year. Not only has he added some legit post moves and a decent mid range game, but he's also starting to play a lot more of an aggressive style of basketball. I think last season, BG got into the habit of playing like a victim, complaining about missed foul calls, and flopping his ass off. This season, he's beginning to play more like a villain, in part thanks to the new rules....

Kevin Love? HAHA The great white hype haha Kevin Love cant jump. Kevin Love has no post up game. Kevin Love cant dunk. He is the biggest stat padder I have seen in recent memory. He is always grabbing wide open rebounds from his teammates and I have seen him get angry at them when they try to grab one from him. He makes the least important baskets of anyone in the league and he is....
