this loss stung me pretty badly. not because of anything but raymonds need for heroics at the end again. how hard is it for him to understand he doesnt need to take the game winning shot every time? he simply is not that player. yeah he hit it against detroit, but i can think of dozens of times where he has missed that exact step back fade from inside the three in crucial situations.
RAJA WAS SO HOT but we stopped feeding him the ball. I even mentioned to my friend after raja had 7 straight, now raymond will decide its his turn to get hot rather then feed the hot hand. he then proceeded to drive and get blocked. HE IS TERRIBLE.
if he is an average pg 40% stellar 10% and terrible 50% of the time, the 50% kills everything we build upon. I would rather have a fully mediocre pg then one who messes up the rhythm of the game so badly.
the bobcats used to play the who will be the top scorer tonight games last year when consistency was 0. good basketball teams are built on consistency. rayray is the opposite of that.
