    I don't mind the taysolation when he drives to the basket for that hookshot. I have a problem with it when it results in what you described or a desparation 2pt heave from just inside the 3pt line.

    I prefer the taysolation that ends with the ball being kicked out to Brandon Knight standing at halfcourt with 2 sec left on the shotclock.

    And I LOVE how Tay hangs (and shakes) his head in disgust when Knight misses the half court heave.

    Haha, Yep. Tay may be one of the worst leaders in term of body language I have ever seen. One of the main reasons I have wondered why he has been kept along so long. Doesn't seem to be much of a leader, outspoken, or mentor. Except for the negative body language. But of course, this is all my own observations form 5k miles away.

    Tay also hangs (and shakes) his head in disgust whenever Moose yells "AND-1".

    Tay would make an excellent aging mother in-law.

    Tay's post game was never in question here, was it? It's how he initially broke into the starting lineup in the playoffs in '03.

    It's the 3-point line palming routine that he does that is tough to watch. However out of whack the defense is at that point, they have a good 5 seconds to regroup while he goes through his pre-pass checklist.

    No, no. Sorry, I wasn't posting it as an argumentative thing.

    I just saw it in a Grantland article and though members here would be interested.
