You can't facilitate without the ball in your hands. Great scorers have the ball in their hands
35% Usage, the ball is in his hands plenty.
Granted Westbrook is at 39, and then 44 in the 4th quarters which is by far a record.
Whatever you do....do not blame KD's struggles on Scott Brooks. It isnt brooks shooting those horrible shots. This is a make or miss league and KD (thanks in large part to TA) is missing a lot of shots. He's also taking a lot of bad shots and TA has forced him into getting the ball out of scoring positions on the floor.
More importantly, Tony has completely taken KD's spirit. He's defeated and despite his offensive woes, his spirit and confidence being taken away is the biggest issue with KD this postseason. That's why he's standing in the corner and differing to Reggie and Russell. His spirit is gone and that has nothing to do with Russell or Scott Brooks.
That's somewhat what the article nobody is reading because they're focusing on the headline is about.
There was a play where KD had the whole side iso'd and post position on Mike Miller, Russ came down and came to his side, he just stood straight up and literally waived it off. The Reggie iso play out a timeout, he was in the corner with his hands on his knees bent over. The first play of OT he actually got easily passed TA losing him on that Perk screen, then still looked over his shoulder and hesitated, TA stole it, sulked down the court and Miller hit that 3.
He is broken.
That's why he out there shortarming FTs. And writing pep talks to himself on his shoes.
But if and when he plays well tonight, Tramel will take all the credit for his headline having inspired him in some type of way.Edited by DatZNasty - 5/1/14 at 10:53am
