41 shots is a crime. And tp top it, he said after the game that the ball movement was great and that nobody played selfishly. How fucking bad is that??? 41 shots. 41
The ball movement was great when Nash was on the floor...Nashty is going to have that team in the playoffs. Phil Jackson's talent was getting 7 other guys to play great basketball together at the same time as Kobe was playing great basketball by himself. I think Nash will end up doing the same.
Regarding Jeremy Lin; I think he can become an all-star for two reasons;
1. He's the best in the league since Nash at throwing the touch-down fast break pass.
2. He's tough as nails. Memphis was beating on him hoping that he would stop playing, and he just came back harder with each bump.
