I further think that since the team (once again) has the best record since the Gay trade, won the 3 seed which is quite an accomplishment, and has now just won their first playoff game, that it is likely that this team is not driven by some abstract desire to maximize one player's output, but driven to win basketball games. Maybe they are one and the same, but nonetheless, they're playing to win. 1st option, 2nd option. Call it what you will. Dude just nailed two smooth jimmies to win the Raps their first playoff victory in quite a while.

Doesn't he deserve credit? Look at the results.
not trying to take anything away from him, just admitting I can see the other side of the coin as well.
