What I'm seeing is a lot more resistance from opposing defenses than what he saw at the start of the season. Then he had a lot more guys leaving him out there, then running out at him and leaving a path to the paint. Now he still has some success with the pump fake that gets some guys in the air, but he's fumbled the ball on a good number of those plays, as well as being fouled, and his energy level just seems to decline from both results. He gets stronger in games where his pretty shots drop and he finds his rhythm. Which I can handle to some extent. What I don't like is falling back on long range shots. True there is a need for threes on this team, but for so many from a low percentage guy? It's bullshit. I really don't want to see anything like that next season.
