More touches? He should know he is the 4th option at best in the starting lineup. As a supposedly unselfish player why would he care about how many summer 3's he gets to jack up? Maybe stop putting up Bargnani
like rebounding numbers and get your head out of your ass and play better. Sorry but from the beginning of the season he's looked off and I don't believe it was related to Gay considering how last season ended and nobody could have predicted Gay playing this poorly. Imo something else is up.
