As Charles Barkely would Say "Stats Dont mean a thing" Kobe takes the last shot have you seen his stat line?????? no question its going to him even if he is 1-54 . Rudy Gay is that guy,
Attitude Is A Choice.
Just wait for the next 5 game losing streak and fans will be ready to run Gay out of town with "I told you so". Even though I wasn't a big fan of getting Gay, I do like the fact that we traded 2 redundant pieces (Jose, Ed) to fill a glaring hole (SF). The contract still makes me ill and yes, his efficiency is not great, but he's our main guy for the next few years, so no real point focusing on the negatives.
For the big Bargnani fans, be thankful for RG. He has stepped into the spotlight that Bargs couldn't handle and has brought a winning atmosphere where Andrea has a chance to shine. If AB does start to play better and makes it past the trade deadline it wouldn't happen if it wasn't for the play of RG no matter how dismal his shooting percentage is.
Because unlike Derozan, Bargnani when shooting inefficient, Rudy Gay makes the big and most important plays regardless. He impacts the game however he is shooting whether it's coming up with the big shot, big block, rebounding, etc. i.e. Indiana game.
Plus, he's a presence. Not many guys int he league where you go "Not this guy."
The OKC example backs it up as well, Harden gone, this team has had quite a bit more conflict on the bench than it's had in the years. Especially between Westbrook and Durant. Great talent, and they both do have chemistry, but a guy like Harden helps to settle any extra conflict.
... just sitting here in the corner watching Pistons replays, half of which feature Calderon making various Pistons look like all stars, and sighing ...
Did I mention that Caldy went 10 for 13 in Detroit's last win against Milwaukee, including 3 for 4 from three? I wish we had a shooter like that on our team ...
Don't be silly Rudy offers leadership we never had Calderon has been running the PG position on this team for 7 years and the Raps have just been stuck in mediocrity let it go. Calderon on average will not impact a game.

Has anyone noticed how great of a ball-handler Rudy Gay is? The guy can seriously create from 25+ feet, and find his way all the way to the rim. A great pull-up jumper, and a very underrated defender. Plus, his length seems to annoy players.
Gays handles arent that great hes just quite th athletic specimen to help him out with creation his size is great hard to stop when hes on the move, Dont let that fool you a lot of the time his handles are clumsy, but its not how you start its how you finish and hes always been great on those pulls ups and attacking the basket.
