past 3 yrs worth of disappointment and people still making excuses for this guy
, he's old, he's tired, he has nothing left to prove.....all things you dont want out of a guy thats suppose to be your #1 right now and when Kobe comes back he'll probably be even worse as he'll try less and less in hopes that Kobe will shoulder the load for him.
Well bleep. He's damned if he plays well or not. When he does he still gets hammered. The fan base here is in full hate on Pau mode and that kind of sucks. He's certainly more limited than he used to be, and maybe there ARE some physical things going on SOME TIMES, NOT ALWAYS GRANTED, when he looks like the effort isn't there. But there are a lot of other times he's clearly trying out there. Fact is he is still a quality player, a smart player and a team player and just not a whole lot of better options out there for us at the moment. That's what we have now, the moment, not what didn't happen back whenever people wanted him gone. He just played a nice game, I would hope he'd at least get props when due. Not constant bashing. If his shot was falling at a better % it would look a lot better for him. He still gets a lot of good looks.
Just think the hate is over the top. Now you can blast me for defending him…..whatever. We don't have effing options that are better at the moment.
