People, including myself, were just upset after the GS game. I think emotional reactions were rampant among Kings' fans. IT is very good off of the bench, and its hard not to like the intensity he plays with. He is VERY undersized and makes up for it with an oversized heart. I think one of his biggest flaws (trying to do too much sometimes or not looking for his teammates) was really exposed on that final possession. I was most upset with the fact that he seemed selfish on that drive. But, its over and almost all Kings' fans love IT. His primary responsibility is to add a spark and be a scorer, but when he comes in as the primary ball handler and facilitator, it would be nice if he could set others up and look for them better.
This is a great post
The emotional reaction is fine. He was super lazy with some of those passes and that's not like him.
But other than that last play, I don't see the selfish play. Dude is all team. And again, stats aren't everything but his assist rate on a line with some awful offensive players is pretty impressive to me.
If stats are your thing...he's 12th in the NBA in usage percentage and 17th in PER. I don't know what that means exactly, but it really really proves my point.
