Why do Clipper fans not like him? It seems to me, that everytime I watch him play, he's balling...Hitting jumpers and getting to the rim sometimes...Is he incosistent? Defense not very good? He seems to be a great teammate too....I actually thought he was one of the more underrated players in the league but reading that thread about trading Granger for Bledsoe, it seems Clipper fans don't like him very much...What am I missing?
Most people have not seen him play, so they assume he is good because of what he did during the Wizard days and also because his nickname is tough juice. He rarely attacks the rim. He does not catch and shoot much. He does not set up others. What he does is isolate on the baseline and dribble and shoots. It works, but he seems to be so one dimensional when he plays.
He is very overrated, but he is not a dumb player. He just dont fit as a team player.
