Well perhaps it is but its taken a while to happen. I am talking about Roy of course. He was expected to be a scorer off the bench but produced next to nothing in games 1 and 2. Suddenly after that "outburst" he has come alive and now he's the hero. But what if he acutally did what he was supposed to in games 1 and 2? We might have a road victory by now and maybe be even up in the series.
I'm still angry at him for that "outburst" and will take more than just one heroic performance after a few duds in this years Playoffs. I thing I wouldn't be surprised to see happenning in the following games is some of that Roy ISOs that we all love so much. In fact we probably already started seeing them in game 4 which works when Brandon is actually hitting it jumpshots. But what if he isn't which is bound to happen, is it still our best chance at winning?
The one player that I really feel sorry for is LaMarcus Aldridge. He was the one to get the team to the Playoffs but he still isn't getting the respect from his coach or his team-mates to their #1 option. He is still being treated as the guy that gets them going, in the first quarter, then just forgets about him in the 2nd half. They often give up on getting him the ball if there is just a little bit of difficulty in it or, now that Roy is hitting shots again, deferring to Roy.
Why are we living and dieing by Roy's jumper when he is so unreliable? Roy can certainly be usefull but to rely on him to be our #1 option in the fourth quarter has got to be the most daft idea ever! My hope is that Nate will use Roy as the decoy for once and let LMA lead the team to victory for game 5. But I don't see that happenning as its too good an idea for him. Plus having his little pet back will surely mean more and more Roy ISOs. Oh and more Roy ISOs.
And some ISOs for his pet.
