I know you may not like this post. But, it's time for an honest assessment of TO.
OUTLAW HAS REACHED HIS CEILING WITH THIS CLUB.
Travis is impeding the development of the Blazer's future. His fate and departure are sealed.
Sometimes managements needs to make a decision and move forward.
A decision regarding the future of Travis Outlaw (TO) is needed NOW.
I love TO. But, this guy needs to be shipped out.
Kick him off the island, Pritchard.
Yes, last year Jack was removed.
For the 3 major baskets TO's hit in the 4th quarter the past 1.5 years, his multiple mistakes have shifted the balance the other direction.
I can't stand his cock-eyed-high-angle-71.45 degree shooting form that begins with his head facing vertically downward on the floor.
He's fundamentally both AWKWARD and OFF.
His turnovers are both timely and un-needed.
Further, Outlaw doesn't play TEAM basketball. I bet Rudy and Roy thinks he's a ball-hog. He throws up crazy looking shots every game.
He reminds me of the guy who sometimes gets really lucky at key moments, so you hang on to him. However, outside of those key moments, he's terrible. But, then all of a sudden, another key moment comes, and...... with Outlaw, it's BRICK.
A good fit for Outlaw would be with Steven Hill in OKC. It's closer to his hometown, and as we well know, PJ Carlesimo loves brick-shooters that follow the lead of Kevin Durant.
One guarantee: Outlaw will be gone before the All-Star Break.
Who can we get in return?
