Default Marco Belinelli

In my opinion, this guy needs to be more of a playmaker, because when he creates plays for teammates, good things usually happen.

I'm really tired off his bullshit off balance jumper, and I don't know wtf he is shooting, but it can't be pretty. He should stick to driving to the hole and creating for teammates

He's been turning over the ball often lately while attempting to penetrate and dish..I think he had atleast 4 or 5 tonight..He's a shooter first and foremost as of right now, and those off balance jumpers are like lay ups for him...I know how it feels to be irked with a certain player; except for me, it's Antoine Wright.

he's the least of our problems. Regardless of his redundant fadeaways, he still makes for a decent rotation player on a pretty freakin' shit team.

His ability to take it to the rim gets him more involved in the offense though, and IMO he needs to establish that first before he starts jacking up those 'off balance' jumpers. I've always thought he's more of a scorer than shooter ala Kapono, and streetball better defines his game.

OTOH I didn't watch tonight's game and so I don't know what the TOs were about, but he's shown in the past he can handle the ball with either hand and drive right and left. But what I've seen lately is his going strictly to the right, alot of times into trouble and getting stripped.

He's shooting 42% from 3 (#1 on the team other then Bosh) with an overall 44 FG%. So saying what his shooting can't be pretty is wrong. This is one of the players being unbelievably misused. He's a player that needs touches early to get into rhyth and last night was a perfect example of him being misused. In the first half he only got a total of 2 shots and was 2-2. He was 4-6 for the game and ino didn't get the ball enough as usual. He needs to handle the ball a bit more, the only problem i find right now is that when he has the ball there is no movement from other players to much standing still. For what ever reason the offence has once again hit a brick wall and there seems to be no direction or structure in the offence and players like Turkoglu, Belinelli are being used poorly.

One thing i'll never understand about his shot is his ability to fade in any direction, including forward.
