In his last five games these were his scoring totals in this order: 8pts, 9pts, 11pt, 9pts, and tonight a whopping 2pts. Ok so you say he wasn't much of a scorer anyway, he did the dirty work, rebounding is his strength. Well hereare is rebounding numbers in those same 5 games in this order: 5rbs, 8rbs, 9rbs, 6rbs, and tonight, a whopping 3rbs. Maybe it's him hitting that proverbial rookie wall, maybe he's come down to earth and is not the talent that we thought he was becoming, or maybe it's coaching. Who knows, but right now he's not helping this team
There have been some of you that state "don't break up the team, let's see what we can do". Ithink half a season is more than enough time to "see what we have". We apparently don't have enough even against bad teams. My opinion is that it's the coaching along with the trade rumors, but if it is the trade rumors, then he has to learn to be a professional and shake that off and stay focuse, because if not he's gonna start to make the other 29 GM's look smart for passing on him.
