Yes I am. For longer then you've been Alive. That's why I am keeping it real.
It was clear Holiday lost any and all desire for a TEAM way of playing. And decided to TRY and be the " STAR " player tonight, late in the game that he had ZERO in bringing us back in. That is the very definition of a Hack. Yes Holiday has talent. Not 11 million a year talent, but talent. But he needs to reckognize when he is out-manned, and try to to what's best for the TEAM. And what was best was going to Thad, or even Turner on occasions. But he did not. His Illadvised 3 Pt attempt in regulation cost us the chance to win it then.
Yes I am a fan. Just not a ridiculous one who thinks Holiday is an ELITE PG. Good ?...yes. But nowhere near a top-10 PG. And is not 1/25th the PG that Westbrook is.
He had 13 assists.
I have no problem with holiday stepping up and trying to be a star at the end... Someone had to do it after the thunder started raining 3s and pulling away in the last 2 minutes. He didnt get it done, and he didnt make smart plays to finish the game, but it is what it is.
Kevin durant beat us.... Jrue holiday didnt lose it for us.
He prob is a top 10pg......
anyone else impressed with ET's man to man D on Westbrook in the 3rd? I thought he did a hell of a job keeping him from the rim. There was at least times where Westbrook tried to shake him and get to the rim but ET forced him into makin tight passes in traffic.
Everyone looks alot better when there's a 7 foot shot-blocker camping out on the block.... Individual defensive perfomances weren't really that bad, especially considering the offensive talent on the other team, but they'd look even better with an eraser back there.
