I seem to recall him giving fits to the opposition when he was with Golden State and the Clips, so for all of his defensive liabilities he gave it back twofold on the other end. I also thought he was somewhat of a folk hero in Denver.

I mean really what more can you ask for off of the bench. A guy that can score double digits and drop 4 or 5 assists.

No to mention he's a tough, scrappy little bugger who didn't back down from anybody and was fearless in the paint.

Maybe my perception is slightly skewed because I like to root for the underdog.
