In the past few years I find myself calling my television names and throwing a empty beer can at it!
With that said, TRAVIS should buy me a new TV, been traded or should have his minutes decreased dramaticaly, or if anything he should be getting his ars chewed out by sarge. Her are a few reasons why:
1- It took him 2 years to understand our play book enough to even be effective out there(no basketball IQ)
2- He either thinks he is kobe, wants to be kobe, or is trying to prove that he will become the greatest jump shooter the league has ever seen!
3- Where his lack of B-Ball IQ comes into play is when our leading scorer in Roy is on the floor and there is 15-17 seconds left on the shot clock and his (kobeness) decides to take a fade-a-way with 2-3 guys on him from 15ft out. It makes no sence to me. And that is when I am yelling at my tv all game long!
4- He could be one of the best players in the league if he did have IQ. My reasonings to believe this are because he has one of the highest vertical leaps in the league, he is quick enough to blow by almost any small foward or power foward in the league. With all that said….DRIVE TRAVIS PLEASE! I dont know why Nate doesnt tell him to do so. He should be either ducking on people left and right, a higher % shot by the way or laying it in or shooting a crao load f-throws. Get us some easy buckets Travis!
The guy has a load of talent but either no one on the staff pushes him to his highest potential or he is just one of those, all talent, no smarts kind of player.
Am I the only blazer fan that notices this and shares the same amount of frusteration towards Travis? Please help me!
