You hate no reason to hate...those numbers are similar to Durants 22/5/2 39 percent shooting.
I don't blame him all the way, because PJ should get others more involved. Wilcox is playing great, get him waaay more involved, as is Wilkens. and Green is averaging 10 and 4 in 20 minutes on 48% shooting...get that rookie more involved.
And this may sound stupid to some but as for that Lebron comparison I think his 41% back in 03/04 is much more impressive than 39% today. The whole league's perimeter players were getting between 40-44% and 44% was awesome, and that was likely due to zone's becoming legal. And when it changed and %s went up, it directly coincided with the handchecking calls being called to make things easier with the zone. So 39% today is just Adam Morrison like with double the shots.
