    OK, I can't help myself. I thought the expression was "Silent but deadly".

    Re: Quiet, but deadly offseason move by Cavs — Jarrett Jack

    Thank you sir! This post actually came from Josh, one of our newest writers. This was his first post! I've written the other articles you've seen come up this week.

    My vision for the site is that I contribute more of a "Cavs Grantland" type stories where Josh posts actual breakdowns. Hopefully others like the content as well!

    Hahahahaha. I think Josh intentionally went with "Quiet, but deadly" to avoid the connection

    Re: Quiet, but deadly offseason move by Cavs — Jarrett Jack

    Jack seems to have everyone's consensus as a great move.

    When I talk to all my friends, they scrutinize Bennett, Bynum, and Clark, but one thing we all agree on, is that Jack was a great signing.

    Love it. Love it. Love it.

    How is Jack as a defender? When he played with Curry, who guarded the 2s?

    Re: Quiet, but deadly offseason move by Cavs — Jarrett Jack

    Jack is physical on defense, but makes mental errors. In Golden State, Thompson would defend the best offensive opponent while Curry defended the weakest in the back court to stay out of foul trouble. Jack would draw the assignment in the middle, often defending guys much bigger and stronger. I did see him blow some assignments regularly, follow the wrong man off the pick and roll. He is so good on the offensive side and so good at working with young players that its easy to look past the mental errors on defense.

    Re: Quiet, but deadly offseason move by Cavs — Jarrett Jack

    On Media Day, Jarrett Jack first mentioned that a suitable nickname for him might be "2 Jz" (a reference to rapper "2 Chainz" and, of course, Jack's initials). Not too long ago, he confirmed the endorsement of the nickname. This morning after shootaround at the Warriors practice facility, Jack told me whether it had anything to do with his uniform number 2. He also reacted to a nickname Twitter came up with for his lean-back jumper, and his thoughts on his chances for the Sixth Man Award.
    PMC: Is there any correlation between your nickname "2 Jz" and the number 2 on the back of your jersey?
    2 Jz: Not really. No. 2 is my little brother Justin's. He wore number two all his life. When I got traded to New Orleans, #1 and #3 had already been taken, so I said, Hey why not wear number two, represent my little brother?
    PMC: Favorite 2 Chainz song?
    2 Jz: Ooh, that's a tough one. That's my guy. I live in Atlanta. I've been knowing Tauheed (Epps) -- that's his real name -- super, super long. Favorite 2 Chainz song? Hmmm... The one with him and Lil Wayne. He performed it at the VMAs. I forget what it's called, it's a dope, dope record. [Note: The song is "Yuck".]
    PMC: Your twitter handle has the number 3 (@JarrettJack03). "3" is from your previous number?
    2 Jz: Yeah, I wore 3 pretty much all my life, wore it in college at Georgia Tech. Stephon Marbury is (sic) my favorite player, so that's the inspiration behind that.
    PMC: There are some nicknames out there for your jumpshot. There's The Yawn and then there's the Barca Lounger.
    2 Jz: The what?!!!
    PMC: THE YAWN! And the barcalounger, because you lean back.
    2 Jz: (laughs)
    PMC: What are your thoughts on those?
    2 Jz: I mean, I guess I gotta go with them. The thing with nicknames is you don't really pick them, they kinda pick you, so if that's what it is, then I'm rolling with it.
    PMC: Alright, and then sort of a serious question is do you prefer starting or coming off the bench? [Note: I hate asking these vanilla media questions but at this point the elapsed time had only been one minute thirty seconds; will try to avoid in future minis!]
    2 Jz: It doesn't matter. At the end of the day, I just try to contribute in a positive way to my team. That's not a politically correct answer or whatever, it's just the honest truth.
    PMC: Thoughts on Sixth Man Award?
    2 Jz: It's great to be mentioned, but you know I'm always about trying to get to the playoffs. That's one of the most incredible feelings I've felt as a professional and I just wanna feel it again. [Note: In 2011 the New Orleans Hornets, with Jack on the team, made the playoffs.]

    Pretty much. I would compare his off the ball defense to Waiters'.

    Re: Quiet, but deadly offseason move by Cavs — Jarrett Jack

    Jack has some warts on the defensive end, that is why he has played for so many teams and the Warriors let him walk in favor of Iggy for twice the price. That said, he is an asset on the offensive end and will speed up development of young players on that end. Its what he does, and always has. Bet he ends up a damn good assistant coach when he retires.

    Re: Quiet, but deadly offseason move by Cavs — Jarrett Jack

    With having mostly offensive players for our best players in Kyrie, Dion, Bennett, Bynum, Jack, Karasev, etc. combined with us picking up Igor for our offensive coach, we're going to be REALLY fun to watch because our offense will probably look pretty damn good. Also, Mike Brown is probably going to be so stressed with teaching a mostly 25-and-under team defense that he will be growing his hair out just so he can rip it out. :chuckles:

    Re: Quiet, but deadly offseason move by Cavs — Jarrett Jack

    I dont think Mike Brown will be stressed at all. In fact I think he will be coming in with a chip on his shoulder after the lakers hired him to coach the team with no freedom to incoporate any of the philosphies that got him hired.

    Brown will be happy to get a chance to teach a full crew who will buy into his system and see it pay dividends.

    Defnesively youll see Waiters and Irving attacking the ball as early as possible forcing a half court game thats a mixture man to man with a disguised zone. The defense itself has a natural feel to players once learned as evidenced with the struggle former brown plaeyers had adjusting to a more traditional style defense.

    Jack is an excellent on the ball defender. He will work well within Browns System and I doubt you see him frequently lost off the ball as the rotations have a natural team read to it that creates less confusion.

    Brown will for the first time have the full green light to implement his philosophies on the court.

    Of course there will be some growing pains but a healthy Anderson Varejao, along with veterans like Jarret Jack,CJ Miles and to some extent Bynum will help smooth those out. Also Irving and Thompson will be entering their third years. typically the amount of time it takes for young players to come into their own in regard to team defense.
