Default Is Mike Bibby just a chucker now

I must admit I havent seen much of the Kings play this season. Everytime I look at the box score, I see Bibby shooting 3-12, 4-16ish FGs. I always thought he was a gym rat and could shoot with the best of them. Whats going on? Is he a chucker now?

Along with chucking, Artest calls him soft with no d. Which is true on all accounts.

I mean, no defense is one thing, but his shooting seemed to suffer a lot. If his hand is still injured, why is he on the floor?

No. His luck as a shooter has ran out, teams know how to defend him now. He's also seemed slow out there.

Eh? His luck as a shooter? What does that mean?

A career .447 shooter is shooting at .355 this season is very odd. Look at his career stats and its obvious that this season there's a major drop in his FG% and 3PFG%.

Like I said before, he hurt his shooting hand and that's why he's been off.

Shows what you know. That injury effected two areas: his thumb, and his wrist. He just recently said it is getting back to normal. Now, he has to focus on getting back into his normal shot, when all this time he has had to adjust because of the injury. In preseason, before the unjury, he was shooting a crazy pct. Please know wtf you are talking about next time.

I think its a combination of the injury and the Kings just playing poor basketball. He doesn't get as many good looks as much as he used to. I thought Salmons and Kevin Martin would give Bibby more space but I guess not. Plus, I suspect that he doesn't like Artest or how Mussleman is coaching the team but obviously he would never say it.

When Webber left, the Kings were still a decent team weren't they? Too bad Peja wasn't happy there. Not a single motherf*cker benefited from all the player shifting that went on about for the last 3 seasons except for Kevin Martin.
