So silly to watch Cavs fans shit on him last year for the coach's misuse of him. Pretty sure I remember people saying Korver was "done." You don't just magically lose one of the greatest shooting strokes.

Well said

Kyle Korver is probably the most underrated roleplayer in the entire league. His positional and team defense are so underrated it's practically criminal.

Good, sitting the bench just stalls his development

RJ should still be on the team, i'd take Bron at point with RJ at the 3 over Calderon right now

People honestly need to develop more motion 3 pointers. Kyle Korver was 80% the reason for the hawks winning 60 games that year. The way he unlocks an offense is scary

What's scarier is that the Warriors have 2 Kyle Korvers

So a few games with LeBron and he already matched his career high?

What's scarier is that the Warriors have 2 Kyle Korvers
The Warriors have incredible shooting, but Kyle Korver is a really unique talent. You can look at Curry, Thompson and Korver as all-time great shooters and you'd be correct. But, they all prefer their shots to come in different ways.

Korver is simply amazing coming off of screens off the ball. He doesn't seem as comfortable simply spotting up, which is what Thompson does so, so well. Curry, on the other hand, is the best off-the-dribble long-range shooter I've ever seen.

Just in terms of shooting, they're all lethal and they all put a tremendous amount of pressure on a defense. When Korver comes screaming off a screen with a helpless defender trailing him, I just expect every shot to go in. It is really incredible to watch.


On Korver, the thing I enjoy most about him are the other aspects of the his game. Everyone knows about the shooting. He'll stay in the league as long as he wants just because of his unreal trigger finger. But, he is a lot longer and a better defender than most people probably realize.

That isn't to say he is lock-down, but he has such a high basketball IQ, you'll rarely find him in the wrong spot or not making the correct rotation defensively. That and his 6-foot-7 frame make him an invaluable role player, because it allows the Cavs to play him against pretty much anyone. He had an abhorrent shooting Finals last year (and got a lot of good looks), but even though his shot wasn't falling, he had a positive impact in the majority of the games.

His +/- in the final three games of the series were, respectively, +3, +3, +0. Considering the opponent and that he as around 20 minutes a game, that is damn good. Had his normal shots been falling, who knows...


Love me some Korver.

To be like Korver, Klay, Allen, Curry and Rip you have be a master at creating seperation before getting to your spot. Ontop of that you have to have a super fast shot release
