isn't expendable, but I think there is way too much hatred and subjective analysis regarding his stats and play that often ignores some of his positive contributions.
Because he was a first overall pick
means absolutely nothing at this point but yet he's still chastized for it. That's hate, pure and unharnessed. For fucks sake, we could have been stuck with Ammo or Tyrus. If only we had taken Aldridge and traded that turncoat Bosh
before he bailed!
Last sentence was just for effect!
No one cares about that pick thing anymore. I haven't seen people write about that lately.
So, one makes analysis. I've made a lot of analysis and shown evidence - o rating, drating, winshares/48 minutes, his %ages since Bosh
left, net points/ 100 possessions, etc. Yet many people probably assume I'm a hater because I actually look at stats, etc.
