it's the playoffs, you're not going to always get the ball in comfortable spots. he's the league MVP and scoring champ, this shouldn't even be an excuse for him at this point. someone tell Tony Allen to ease off KD. he's not letting him get the ball in a comfortable rhythm!
he's had 2 of his worst games of the entire season in this series, admitted to having tony allen in his head, and his body language on court hasn't been the killer we saw in january. at times he's looked like the ghost that lebron did against the mavericks.
1. i referenced him being the leading scorer. I assumed you knew that meant over the course of the season. multiple regular seasons. also look up leading playoff scorers since 2010 KD is 1 or 2. so obviously he gets shots off during the regular season and both the playoffs. if u want to minimize your sample size to this series, again you're off base he only had 2 scoring games under 30 this series alone.
2. just because they have had success doesn't mean they're maximizing it. I personally think they shoulda got miami in 2012. I don't think their approach to the game has ever been good. also the first half of this season is the best numbers he and his teammates (sans a hurt Westbrook) have put up. so is he flourishing more in their current system or in the system with him as facilitator?
3. sure you don't get all the shots you want but the elite guys stay in rythym and turn up when it's time to rise to the occasion. Mike got his high post touch pretty much all the time. Kobe gets to his spots at will. Bron gets layups at will despite being dared to shoot. those guys were all facilitators first which KD is not afforded the same luxury.
