Lately a lot of our threads wind up being discussions about Ray and his ability/inability to be an effective PG for the Cats. So, instead of having all of the Ray talk scattered we can just gripe/defend/discuss it all in this thread.
First, here are my issues with Ray
* This is Ray's 4th season in the league, 3 of those 4 seasons he has shot under 40% from the field. To put it in perspective, DJ is shooting better from three point range than Ray is overall
* 3 different coaches (I'm not really sure if you can call a coach ) have seen something in his game that makes them decide to play him at SG rather than what everyone perceived as his natural position PG.
* If you play him at SG he is too small and can't shoot!!
* This is the issue that gives me an ulcer... Despite having the worst FG% on the court (38.8% as of today) he insists on taking the bulk of the end of game shots. With that FG% he should be the LAST option.
On the positive side he has heart and is a hard worker, but I think we've seen enough to realize that the Ray as Charlotte Bobcats starting PG for the next 10 years simply isn't going to happen.
I've had enough, he needs to be benched or traded.
Have a nice day
