Did the #NBA change a lot during the last 20 years? Why is a game today very different compared to what you used to see as a kid? This is what this thread shall answer. Thread.
Thanks a lot to @pachamaltese for translation and improving the code!
4 million observations were analyzed since 2000 season up to 2019 season by using NBA's API. A first insight is that during 2019 season, there were 25,000 additional shot attempts compared to 2000 season. The game is much faster today.
@GustavinhoCARP tells us that today's slowest #NBA team (Charlotte Hornets) plays way faster than the fastest team from 2005 season (Phoenix Suns) that were known for their innovation of playing in 7 or less seconds

¿Cambió tanto la #NBA en los últimos 20 años? ¿Por qué un partido es tan distinto a lo que veías cuando eras chico? Eso es lo que voy a intentar responder en el siguiente hilo pero vamos a los bifes. Acá se ven todos los tiros de la liga en el 2000 versus 2019.
Se analizaron 4 millones de tiros desde la temporada 2000 hasta la 2019 con la API de la #NBA y luego usamos magia de #Rstats para jugar con los números. Lo primero que surge es que hoy se tiran casi 25.000 tiros más por temporada que en el 2000. Se juega mucho más rápido.
Como dato divertido aportado por el amigo @GustavinhoCARP el equipo más lento de la #NBA hoy (Charlotte Hornets) juega aún más rápido que el equipo más rápido de la temporada 2005 Phoenix Suns conocidos por su filosofía innovadora de jugar a 7 segundos o menos.

Det är svårt att föreställa sig om det som sker i Kina. Uppenbarligen samlar de in dissidenter. All internet trafik är spärrad utom de källor som kommer via den kinesiska staten. Det som pågår i Kina angående #Coronavirus är en krigshandling av främmande makt.
Det här viruset är
gjord av människan. Ryssland, Indien, Taiwan vet att viruset innehåller HIV.

Därmed är skiten tillverkad av människan. Det sägs att den slår hårdare mot kinesiska män än mot andra raser, vilket betyder att denna "attack" kommer ej från deras egna led.

Fortsättning följer.

#LebronJames - on his way to being the predetermined “Goat” - YESTERDAY, passes #KobeBryant as the third all-time scoring leader in the #NBA with his 33 thousand and 644th point. In Kobe’s hometown of Philadelphia.

“No se imaginan el impacto que tuvieron en mi vida, lonque me inspiraron”, les dice Parker a sus míticos compañeros del Big 3.
Y, de paso, competitivo, informa que Manu le está ganando al tenis! 😂 #MerciTony
Para la eternidad. #Big3 #Spurs #Tim #Manu #Tony 🇺🇸🇦🇷🇫🇷🙌💪❤️🏀
Tremenda afirmación de Duncan que marca lo que bancó Parker. Pop fue mas duro con él que con Manu!! Y eso no es poco decir luego de lo que MG hizo “renegar” al DT. TP9 aguantó, escuchó, aprendió y creció hasta ser el armador de cuatro campeonatos!! 🙌👏

The UK govn is set to award #Huawei access to it’s 5G network. This will be a mistake of epic proportions and is based on a complete inability to understand what Huawei is and the motivation of the CCP.

My piece in @foreignpolicy today:…

The UK govn claims Huawei is ahead in 5G tech than any other company and it would be limited to only the nonessential parts of UK comms.

The fundamental problem with Huawei is that it is not a regular company as we understand them. EVERYTHING it does goes back to Beijing

ALL Chinese companies MUST defer to govn narratives (see ##Taiwan and Tibet)— and if the West hadn’t understood that dynamic, look at what is happening in #Xinjiang.

But the recent #NBA scandal in US should have been a serious wake up call for things to come

A running thread of things that @Twitter could do to unlock value for users. Will add to overtime. Please feel free to retweet and reply with your own, most of these below I have just taken and summarized from others. In no particular order. 1/♾ #JustKidding 🤔 or am I?
@Twitter I drafted a tweet on my phone but of course, can't access "draft's" on the desktop. So lets maybe start there. The desktop and @Tweetdeck version should be MORE robust than the mobile app not less. Tweetdeck, for example, has no bookmarks, emoji's, live video, polls, gif's, etc
@Twitter @TweetDeck There are SO MANY great meaningful quotes, threads, replies, and conversations that vanish into the Twitter ether, drowned out by hot takes, snark, and 280 character riffs on what some influencer or politician just did. Find a way to collect and resurface this treasure trove.

Thread: Mike Pence gave a major speech on #China today - He backed #HongKongprotests & slammed the #NBA & #Nike for kowtowing to #China - He also slammed China for its treatment of Muslim Uighurs in the Xinjiang region…
U.S. Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday accused China of curtailing “rights and liberties” in Hong Kong and blasted U.S. company Nike and the National Basketball Association for falling in line with Beijing in a disagreement over free speech.
Criticizing China’s construction of a “surveillance state,” & “increasingly provocative” military action, Pence held up Taiwan’s Democracy as a better path for Chinese people & took Beijing to task for its handling of pro-democracy protests that rocked Hong Kong for more 4 months

My #BlacksForYang Series 21-28 October.

Sign up for Notifications each time I post...It will be like one of those Twitter Op Eds I did, helps put everything in one place.

Should @AndrewYang worry about reaching & SECURING the Black Vote? #YangGang

@AndrewYang Thread 1: Pandering Vs Meaningful Policy

In 2020..Politicians must spend more effort talking to us not at us..".that candidates’ efforts to engage black communities often focus more on symbolic gestures than MEANINGFUL interactions." #BlacksForYang…
@AndrewYang What I really want the #YangGangFamily to understand ...ANYONE specifically talking to us about our own issues different to yours is NOT PANDERING...It's pandering when it's all about style (sounding cool, playing hiphop, photo ops etc..) and ZERO fake interest.

#China’s targeting of the #NBA shows why it may fail at building soft power and the Chinese dream - By narrowing the boundaries of commentary, China is gradually alienating outsiders who might see opportunities there…
Xi Jinping is doing to foreign businesses what it has long done to domestic dissenters: punishing those whose words stray outside ever-narrower red lines. In attacking the NBA, which does not need China and would be difficult to replace, Beijing may have finally gone too far
The NBA controversy put the spotlight on Hong Kong & makes it more likely that the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act will pass. No other state would think of doing what China has done. This is behaviour unworthy of a proud, confident country with 2,000 years of statecraft.

SOOO many questions answered!

Who really owns the NBA?

Why does Nike hate Trump? And America?

Is Kaepernick just a dumb pawn?

Jason Whitlock continues

"The #NBA exists to sell shoes!"

The #NBAChina is beholden to Nike!

Nike's hatred of @POTUS is all about #TPP & Trump's cancellation of it.

Remember when #Obama
went to NIKE HEADQUARTERS to talk TPP?

How weird is that?

(Obama loves him some NBA basketball 😉 - maybe even more than America)…

Communist China is run by a tyrannical oligarchy headed by the thin-skinned President Xi. He banned ‘Winnie the Pooh’ after dissidents said he resembled the cartoon bear. So the meme bear is now routinely applied to him…
China likes basketball & the NBA plays exhibition games there. Players aren’t allowed to have free speech on topics such as Hong Kong. Chicoms are authoritarian control freaks. They want their social credit score system in America as well and Silicon Valley seems happy to oblige.
The NBA coaches could have set an example for freedom, but 1.4 billion fans in China are hard to ignore. It’s a big market there. The NBA will not criticize Xi and his brutality. It boils down to money. They make billions in sales to China & a lot of money through advertising.

Anyone here an #NBA fan that is disappointed in how they are licking China boot?
I liked to watch an occasional NBA game and support Celtics.

The NBA love for Communist China kind of makes me disgusted tho.

I just don't get it. America is wealthiest nation in the history of humanity.

At what point is it enough? Is sacrificing our moral integrity really worth another rolex for these NBA owners?

Just had our “Free Hong Kong” sign confiscated at Capitol One Arena at the Wizards game against the Guangzhou Long Lions. #FreeHongKong #NBA #Censorship
We are currently standing tall behind the basket with our Free Hong Kong shirts on. We were told if we do another sign we will be removed. Standing tall in our tshirts
So far we are allowed our “Google Uyghurs” sign. They seemed annoyed with it.

1) When #Warren2020 & Marco Rubio Agree on #China

A Tweet Storm, Part 1 of 14.

Houston Rockets general manager @DMorey lit a fire by speaking his mind: “Fight for Freedom. Stand with #HongKong.” The Communist Party raged.

2) The Twitter reaction-to-the-retraction was intense. Texas Senator @tedcruz has designs on the White House in 2024.
3) You know who else wants to be sworn in in 2024? Florida Senator @marcorubio. His @NBA reaction is one of many hawkish-on-China tweets for him.

Google isn't the only American company bending to win China's favorite. Now you have the #NBA. What gives. If Democrats get in office we will all bend to China. #VoteRedToSaveAmerica #jamesharden
This is the tweet in support of free speech that got it all started. Don't we stand for freedom. When did we exempt China? Liberals are only concerned with the might dollar. Everything else be damned. #DarylMorey
President Trump has warned us about China. Meanwhile the Biden and Kerry boys are doing billion dollar deals with them. #HunterBiden #JohnKerry

LA HISTORIA DEL @CoachCMorales Y @AlvaroNBAMartin

Una de las mejores duplas en la historia, no solamente del Baloncesto, si no de los deportes en Latinoamérica

Con preparación y originalidad han logrado cautivar a cientos de miles de aficionados a la NBA

Está es la verdadera historia del Coach Morales y Álvaro Martín

¡¡Dos ídolos de la narración del básquet!!

Todo empezó en 1991, por “accidente”

Los dos comparten la misma nacionalidad, pero que hayan compartido tantas experiencias y transmisiones juntos, es casi un milagro.
Nos ubicamos en 1991.

Absolutamente todo fue por “casualidad”.

Álvaro estudio en Harvard, Administración comercial.

Él era perito de empresas, lejos de lo que cualquiera de nosotros se pudiera imaginar.

La HISTORIA de cómo se formó a través de los años uno de los mejores equipos de Baloncesto de la historia

Un estilo de juego bien definido, pero lo más importante es que lograron formar una FAMILIA

Empezamos 🍿👇🏼
No podemos empezar de otra forma más que con el artista principal de esta obra, el señor Greg Popovich.

De padre serbio y madre croata, se graduó en 1966 en el Instituto Merrillville y en 1970 en la Academia de Fuerzas Aéreas de los Estados Unidos.
Allí jugó 4 años al baloncesto, y en su año senior fue el capitán y el máximo anotador.

Jugo también en la liga profesional de baloncesto de la antigua Yugoslavia (que era una de las más fuertes de Europa) y fue 2 veces maximo anotador.

1. Tras el primer partido de la final de la #NBA entre Raptors y Warriors, los focos están en Kawhi Leonard, Marc Gasol o Paskal Siakam. Pero hay una persona a la que se le puede echar (casi) toda la culpa del éxito de los Toronto Raptors. ¿Quién es Masai Ujiri? Hilo.
2. Masai Ujiri nace en Inglaterra, donde estudiaban sus padres: una doctora keniata y un enfermero nigeriano. Con sólo dos años, la familia regresa a Nigeria, donde crece jugando al fútbol hasta los 12 o 13 años, cuando descubre el baloncesto. Un amor que marcará su vida.
3. Como es de esperar, Ujiri intenta primero triunfar como jugador. Tras jugar en edad de instituto en los Estados Unidos, cruza el charco para hacer carrera en Europa. Juega en varios países: Alemania, Inglaterra, Bélgica, Finlandia… Con 32 años deja el baloncesto.
