I hope this article was tongue in cheek. The point guard shot 6 for 15 and had
2 assists. For the year, his shooting percentage is 4 point below Hayward. And
he takes just as many shots from, ostensibly, the ball control position.
Regarding Hayward, although his 3 point shot has slipped dramatically this year,
his career shooting percentage is actually better than Paul George. His assists
are nearly double George's. This is not to put George down; it is just to
compare Hayward to an all-star at that position.Interesting to note
that none of these guys have played all 82 games in a season yet. That is ok;
neither did Bird or Magic. Stockton did it 16 times.
Thios is a future super star. We are lucky to have him in the lineup. Now we
need some real coaching help to motivate the entire team.
It was fun to be at this game Saturday night and watch Burke hit that winning
shot! A bright spot in an otherwise difficult season.
