his confidence is low, he said it himself
Probably because he's fat and lazy as f**k anymore. Dude went from being one of the top 3 PG in the league to a has been the moment he went to New Jersey/Brooklyn. He s**t on Sloan's playbook because it wasn't run and gun, but the moment he gets what he wants and away from Sloan's style of play he becomes a nobody essentially. Karma came back hard and bit him in the ass and frankly I enjoy seeing him struggle now. Dude has done nothing but get coaches to resign or be fired since leaving Utah.
He has been fighting nagging injuries to his ankles and knees all season long. His jumper is off probably Bc he has no confidence in his base or is guarding his injuries.
His all star status is gone for sure
I know he's beeing dealing with injuries but even during the Olympics in 2012 he showed up to camp really out of shape and and it seems like he's been playing catch up ever since he let himself go that year.
Yeah, his weight has been an on and off issue.... He has always been a big/stocky PG but was in much better shape in Utah.
But this year his jumper is just way off. Livingston is getting a lot of his minutes and deserves then
