That was never the plan in Otherwise they would have taken him in the first round. Sometimes, Jokic throws passes that even he doesn't really know are there to be made.
This play is pretty routine on the surface. Guys spot up like this all the time, and that function, catching on the short-roll and kicking to the shooter is pretty standard. This pass is made all the time. But the fact that Jokic never has Gallinari in his line of sight and manages to land the pass not near Gallinari, but right on target so he can go into his shooting motion, it still seems pretty wild.
There's a casualness in these clips you're always going to find with NBA players. But Jokic takes it a step further, constantly deferring to how the Nuggets' team play is what unlocks what he's capable of. All the media talking to me, saying that I'm the best player on the team? But I really don't think that. You've seen the NBA, the individual players are part of a team, but this team is really a team.
It's 15 guys every day on the court, working hard, practicing together. Since then, they have an offensive rating of -- a full 1. The Nuggets are constantly moving the ball, sharing, finding the open man, kicking, driving, kicking, and making extra pass after extra pass. Jokic is the engine, but with his nascent game still finding itself day by day, the Nuggets wouldn't be nearly the same if their personnel weren't so well primed around Joker, as Mike Miller nicknamed him.
Players have stepped up across the board to create this offensive juggernaut. But Jokic's effect is crystal clear. Check out the net ratings net points vs opponent's points per possessions of various rotation players with Jokic on and off the floor.
All of those players have positive net ratings -- some significantly so -- with Jokic on the floor, and all of those players have negative net ratings when he's on the bench. They outscored their opponent with Jokic, they get outscored without him. That kind of impact doesn't mean that he's even the best overall player on the floor every night. It just means that when Jokic is on the floor, good things happen.
All of this means Denver is in the No. Jokic sees it as an opportunity to experience something new. I want to see how it feels. Jokic stands at With Kevin Durant , his height combined with his insane natural scoring ability makes him an impossible cover for opponents. With Jokic, the effect is similar for his passing. His release point is high, which means he has the ability to make split-second decisions whether to shoot or pass.
Throw in his unreal vision, and you have something that's a nightmare to defend. Jokic's passing is built not only on touch and natural feel for the game, but obviously his vision, and his ability to make multiple reads at once. Some big men have pet passes, certain moves they can go to which provide an opportune moment for a pass they're comfortable and familiar with.
Jokic instead has the ability to modify where he wants to go to, depending on the coverage. Here, Willie Cauley-Stein's long wingspan freezes the overhead pass Jokic so often goes to, so he spits a bounce pass to Jamal Murray. Jokic credits the chemistry he's built with those players with the time he's spent getting to know them and learning everything about what kind of passes they want, where they want it, and when they want to receive it.
You just need to know what shots they like, how they run, how good a lead they are. You need to know your personnel. In its original form, "This Ain't Yo Mama's Soul Train" makes extensive use of elements from a Philadelphia International classic, layering up glassy-eyed Tony Montana style orchestration and vocal snippets over a bustling house beat.
The accompanying Micfreak Remix takes the track further into disco-house territory, pitching the cut up to BPM and beefing up the beats to gargantuan proportions. It's a suitably heavy alternative version that sounds like a peak-time staple in waiting. Sunner Soul. There's certainly something suitably sun-kissed about the title track, which gently beefs up and re-arranges a bouncy, Clavinet-heavy chunk of groovy disco-funk that comes smothered in atmospheric party sounds. The tighter, slap bass-sporting "Universal Disco" explores similar sonic territory, while "Red Hot Disco" sees him layer up the percussion and filter sweeps on a joyful, mid-set workout.
Elsewhere, "Let's Somebody Love" is a soaring slice up tooled-up disco-soul and "Get ready With Me" is a fine slab of string-laden boogie brilliance that sounds like it was beamed down from a distant disco planet. VMR 02 Dec Andromeda Orchestra. Don't Stop EP. In its original form track three , "Don't Stop" is an authentically produced riff on the K. D track of the same name rich in swooping, razor-sharp strings, Clavinet-happy disco grooves and glassy-eyed female vocals.
It comes accompanied by a stellar peak-time remix from Lee's old pal Ray Mang - all layered drum fills, swirling noises and jangling piano riffs - and a spacey, beat-free ambient "Reprise". Bonus cut "Kano Line Dance", a funky mid-tempo shuffler that joins the dots between boogie, jazz-funk and P-funk, is also rather tasty. FAR 11 Oct The Jammers.
The Jammers were a loose collective comprised of members of Instant Funk and other label regulars, and 'Be Mine Tonight' featured on their one and only long player from , with the original mixed by Shep Pettibone. Dr Packer's rework doesn't stray too far from the latter's blueprint, instead simply giving the production a little bit of polish so it will sit more readily in modern-day sets, sonically speaking, while bringing those gloriously 80s synth stabs further to the fore.
Available in full-length and radio edit flavours. Micky Milan. Quando Tu Dances. Now Faze Action have drafted a strong serving of remixers to bring a few deft touches to some of Milan's biggest hits, leading in with Willie Graff and his tasteful edit of the title track that lets the original vibe shine through in all its sunny finery.
Faze Action themselves take on "C'est Une Bombe" - another slick '80s jam with plenty of boogie licks to complement the warmth of the guitar and Latin percussion.
FAR 27 Dec Disco Funkin' Vol 2. Situation - "What Is Going On? While his DJ mix is naturally superb, it's the quality of the 23 unmixed, full-length tracks included in the package that makes the compilation a must-check. Andy Buchan. Brand New Girl. Here he rounds off a hugely successful year via a four-track missive on Masterworks Music.
He begins with a driving slab of tooled-up funk fuzziness the straightened-out righteousness of "Brand New Girl Billy Garner Edit ", before flexing his disco muscles on the string-laden, percussion-heavy mid-tempo sweetness of "Bless My Soul Bettye Swan Edit ".
MMD 16 Dec Edits By Mr K. Defected Presents Most Rated Phenomenal Handclap Band. Remain Silent. Predictably, their third outing for the label is another winner. You'll find the band's original mix of "Remain Silent" - a wonderful slab of off-kilter revivalist disco rich in attractive lead vocals, authentic instrumentation and spacey synths - tucked away at the end of the EP. The headline-grabbing remixes once again come from Ray Mang, whose "Extended Mix" and "Instrumental Mix" both offer a slightly tighter, polished-up feel that's arguably more suitable for club spins.
The EP also contains rather good "Remix" and "Dub" takes from Superpitcher which subtly strip the track back and give it a more spaced-out dub disco feel. TOYT 08 Nov Recorded Delivery.
JAL 13 Sep Phil Disco. Here, you can pick from two lively, bass-led funkers the Blackbyrds-ish 'Retro Disco II' itself and 'Disco Inside' , the predictably smoother and strings-sporting 'Philadelphia Night' and the more laidback, meandering vibes of closer 'Neon', which leans towards jazz-funk.
But I also don't have a problem with Pathfinder as it is - well I guess I have one.. As it is none of these things have anything to do with flying. Again, I know it is an unpopular opinion, but just as Google, Amazon and who knows what else knows what porns you watch, what shit you buy, what stuff to recommend to you, Blizzard monitors all activities and knows what we do.
If they pull pathfinder in one x-pac.. Do it in a second x-pac and people still stick with it If data shows, people are quitting the game in masses because of pathfinder, J. Allan Brack or maybe Mr. Kotik himself is gonna take Ion aside and tell him to drop the shit. Frostchi - Mistweaver. Eadien - Demon Hunter.
A clear majority agrees that the current incarnation of pathfinder is flawed. No idea if it is more accurate - unless you can did your way through the quarterly reports and connect the dots. Last edited by SirCowdog; at PM. I actually follow a few youtubers who did go through all the quarerly reports, as well as the earnings call, and conference call for questions from investors.
Which is not to say that I'm some kind of expert. We're all just guessing. But the one thing I can be sure of is that the driving force in ANY corporation as large as Activision-Blizzard is money. So everything is related. If they can remove a loved feature, but by doing so it can be replaced by something else in the game that makes them money, they'll probably do it. In this case, it's my belief that by taking flight out of the design of the open world, they save money in development costs by streamlining the process.
They only have to design in a single level, mostly 2-dimensional world. They don't have to update AI to handle 3-dimensional pathing, etc. And while it's not directly related, if they're making enough profit from other aspects of the game, they probably don't feel that the losses from people sore about flying are enough to warrant changing how it works. There might be other factors involved that we're not aware of, as I mention below.
I always hesitate to put a lot of stock in the idea that human beings, who are mostly divorced from the gaming community can make, good decisions based on that data. Brack is famously quoted with the "You think you do but you don't" line, and look how that turned out.
Classic is now carrying the WoW title. The thing we have absolutely have to remember is that what the executives want is very much NOT the same thing as what is necessarily good for the health of the game.
These are the guys who thought Diablo Immortal would carry Blizzcon as the big reveal, and who very much want to move into the mobile market. Not because the mobile market has good, quality, healthy games. But because that's where they can be the most predatory with their business. How does this relate to Pathfinder?
Think about what Pathfinder actually does. It lets Blizzard use a more simple open world design formula not that individual encounters or art are simple, but the overall approach to the open world , while simultaneously causing players to spend more time to complete objectives, and incentivizes players to complete more of the world by holding flight hostage.
Hopefully you can see that while that probably does good things to the on-paper statistics of engagement and time played, it might not necessarily be all that enjoyable from a player perspective. We had to see Verizon in just a few days. We're rich gifts for the young Royals and for months we follow that star. If I don't have the sanity of our journey, all I had to do is to look up to. The day our journey be ended is forever etched.
