Rose has never been a consistent outside shooter, but with the Knicks, he essentially eliminated the threat of a 3-point shot altogether. He averaged less than one 3-point attempt per game for the 2016-17 season and hit at a 21.7 percent rate, the worst of his career. He shot 5 of 11 on corner 3-pointers (45.4 percent) but an abysmal 8 of 44 above the break (18.2 percent). Rose was also one of the worst Knicks players in spot-up situations, scoring 0.80 points per possession (19.7 percentile in the league).
That’s brutal against the Warriors. Their elite defenders wouldn’t even bat an eye at Rose, and they would generously help off him to stop penetration elsewhere.
Oh, and speaking of defense, Rose is not great on that end. While he possesses the physical tools to be passable defensively, he often fails to give full effort and finds himself out of position. While you can’t pin all of the Knicks’ defensive issues on Rose (only five teams had a worse defensive rating than New York last season), he certainly didn’t help. The Knicks’ defense was 5.5 points per possession worse with Rose on the floor (from 108.8 to 114.3).
“What we’ve been able to do in the high school arena is create very interactive broadcasts. Our hosts answer questions from people in real time about the broadcast,” Yanarella said.
In the case of Harris, B/R created a different kind of broadcast by focusing on a potential superstar.
“Think about if you watched LeBron (James’) first game ever in high school? We’re trying to treat it like that type of broadcast,” Yanarella said.
