of first few games where our "star" was Andrea.
His presense should open the floor for others. Defenses get an easier time guarding Gay on-ball. Gay is not a willing passer, often choosing a contested shot over pass. And now Demar forgot how to pass as well.
Our success lays in sharing the ball. Shouldn't exploit the new guy that can create his shot and close games and lets face it, likes to score and be the man.
and here is an article that says basically the same
The Rudy Gay Era In Toronto Is Off To An Up-And-Down Start
His first game off the bench was perfect, not trying to do too much. After that it was your example of a stat-padding star on a bad team
great post, agree 100%
gay definitely has improved the team overall but we must be careful of bad habits.
