agreed, and i think teams far too often give into the glamorous notion of giving it to the "star" and letting him "take over." thats all just media sensation that you have to have your best player have the ball in his hands at the end of the game. if they're smothering your top guy, then go somewhere else with it. dont force it so that he can jack up an impossible shot just so you can make sportscenter in the unlikely event it goes in. its unbelievable to me that coaches actually give in to this.
