The Fun with Puns Edition - The Downbeat - #985

I'm as guilty as anyone (that doesn't participate in game threads) of...not participating in game threads anymore, but if you don't, you are missing awesome moments like this:



This is what puns looked like back in the day when we had to walk two miles in the snow to get to school:


Here's a completely inane question, but that's what you get from me. Plus I think I would like to keep things a little lighter today given the past few days we've had.

Ball Don't Lie had an interesting article about a week ago on whether the box score is incomplete.

The article discusses the possibility of adding screen-related stats to the box score. The Jazz have tracked deflections on their own for many years. European box scores track fouls drawn, which I really like.

What stat or stats would you most like to see added to the NBA box score?

Final (and serious) question: What can Tyrone Corbin do to #getbetter? Are there ways that he can actually #getbetter?

Let's take end-of-game rotation/clock management, for example. If it doesn't occur to him to make offensive/defensive subs, and if he sometimes doesn't know how many points the Jazz are down and whether the Jazz should be taking a two or a three, and if he kinda maybe doesn't notice that Hayward has been playing for 28 straight minutes which leads to a higher chance of mistakes at crucial times, and if when Al is not available he calls the same play he would call for Al but just substituting in a different player, what can Corbin actually do to #getbetter?
