Korver helped win all kinds of games vs tough defensive teams for us, including vs Miami in the regular season. No he didn't have a great 5 game series vs them, but using that to castigate a guy's whole career would be pretty dumb, and would make Derrick Rose look even worse by comparison. Virtually every player on our team had severely diminished offensive performance in that series.
I'm point out the fact that he had one series over the last two years in the playoffs that he made shots. Yes the Bulls as a team did struggle that whole series but Korver's problems began when they played Atlanta. Korver is a one dimensional player role player who didn't make shots in the last three series he has played that is not castigating him that's pointing out lack of production especially when he is never asked to create or initiate offense.
