Please explain. What in Wallace`s game or attitude indicates he is too much "I".
I could live with that.
I want rested Tay here for the playoffs. He's our defensive stopper. He always has to play the other team's #1 scorer. He had a bad series against LB. Why do we want to get rid of him, because of that?
I know he was worned out, Mik, but visions of him running away from a driving Labron James in game five in that second OT will resonate in our minds for the rest of the summer. We have loved him since he stepped up and shut down T-mac in 2003, but his upside has not improved since then or the "that championship season" and although his defense has been stellar, we will never get more than 12 and 5 out of him. I don't have any problem going with the fab four for another run, but if we got to give up one of them for someone who is not so passive, and can penetrate and get to the line more so than Tay then I say shake it up!!
I may not have a big enough universe of games to make a fair assessment based upon his historical numbers. But the few games I have watched him play he put up an awful lot of shots and too many of them were prayers. Though his two point field goal percentage is very good and he has been a consistently good rebounder over his career. However he is a very poor three point shooter with a career percentage of .290. This is terrible. So it could be in the few games that I saw him play he took a rather large number of threes (he normally shoots a little under 2 a game) and missed on most if not all of them. This year he averaged 2.8 assists per 40 minutes which is about the same as Deng who averaged 2.7. However, Anthony averaged 4.0, Walton 5.2. LeBron 5.9 and Maggette 3.6 by comparison, Prince only 3.0.
It could be that I am used to seeing Walton play since I live in Los Angeles so I have gotten used to a small forward putting up good assist numbers.
No, he isn't. No, he isn't.
He played for the Charlotte Bobcats for crying out loud Buddah!!!!!!!!
