In the eyes of NBA star Scottie Pippen, the NBA after Disney's rematch is completely another game, and should not even be called an NBA game. He feels that in this environment with no fans, no home and away games, and no noise, the playoffs are more like a normal wild game, which greatly reduces the pressure on the players.
In an interview with Business Insider, Pippen was asked how he evaluated the rematch in Disney's "Bubble". Pippen pointed out that in the absence of fans in the game system, the pressure on the players is much less, and he also used Lakers veteran point guard Lajun Rondo to prove his point.
"To be honest, I don't think this is an NBA game at all." Pippen said, "There is no such kind of peeling confrontation, no travel, no fans to watch the game, no distractions. Really. Yes, to me it’s more like a wild game. Everyone goes to the arena together, and then plays in the team that they have divided. This is the same as the wild game organized by the players themselves in the summer. Because there are no fans on the sidelines , There is no distraction, no noise, the pressure on the players is much less."
"The most typical example: look at Rondo. He couldn't make three-pointers all of his NBA career. Now he can make them suddenly. In this'bubble', his three-pointer percentage is almost 50. %! I didn't look at the specific data, but it's almost the same."
Judging from Rondo's three-point data alone, Pippen's impression is correct. Since his return in the second round of G1, Rondo has shot 44.8% of his three-pointers. Although the sample is small (10 games, 29 shots), considering that he is a guard with a career three-point percentage of only 31.6%, this The accuracy is really amazing.
Then Pippen further elaborated on his point of view, telling how special he thinks this year's semi-final is and cannot be compared with previous years. However, he did not completely deny this rematch, because Pippen used "very entertaining" to summarize his words.
"I think all this makes the game easier, because if you think about it, you will find that Rondo can't make long shots in any other arena." Pippen continued, "Normal NBA games require It’s much harder. For me, it’s easy to play in the "bubble". There is no travel, and that kind of running can be terrible. So now you can sleep on the same bed every night and walk to the arena instead of sitting 25 -50-minute bus. You don’t even have to sit in the arena 2 hours in advance, waiting to be interviewed by the media, and be affected by all the distractions. So this is another game, but It’s really entertaining."
In the view of the experienced playoff veteran, the new environment has changed the style of the game and made it easier for special things to happen on the court, such as reversals. Pippen believes that playing in the "bubble" should not be taken lightly, because the opponent can easily reverse.
"In my opinion, the game style in the'bubble' has become more powerful." He said, "Each team just shoots three points. Now the NBA game is almost a game where anyone who scores 120 points first wins. However. From another perspective, if you can guard against your opponent, then victory is yours."
Pippen has an excellent player career, but this does not mean that his understanding of the game is correct after retirement. Obviously nothing is a three-point shooting game, and people's attitudes are not consistent as to whether this year's NBA playoffs are more difficult or less difficult. For example, Kevin Durant said not long ago that this year's championship should be more recognized, because those who can survive in such a closed environment should be strong men.
