Well Fish has officially gone off the reservation....stating that he is in fact a PG and not a triangle PG. Article below. I'll highlight the statement that makes me shake my head at this guy.
I've always preferred to have five or six assists as opposed to one or two. This system will allow me to facilitate more plays," he said.
The guy has never averaged 5 or 6 assists ever in his career. He is lucky to break 4 assists a couple seasons and is averaging 3 assists for his career. How delusional is this guy? How can he average 5 or 6 when he never did playing in an open offense in Golden State, not in Utah either, not on the Lakers. If he didn't do it then, then he is sure not going to now. I like Fish and respect him, but the guys thinks he can average 6 assists still, the guy can't even start for any other team in the league right now.
That's exciting. To make a play for somebody else is as exciting to me as hitting a shot myself.
Really Fish since when have you made a play for somebody else? You mean the transition long 2's you occasionally hit, the jumpers at the beginning of the shot clock, the driving iron man layups into 4 people. The only thing he is facilitating is offering an opportunity for his teammates or the other team to get a rebound.
