I know we all get frustrated at his attempts to drive to the basket and force a shot, but he takes a beating/hack each time he drives, and he hardly gets any whistles. I feel like if Glen got more respect from the officials, and he drew fouls on more of his driving attempts, then maybe we'd all feel better about his shot attempts/shot selections. Just my two cents... it's something to take a look at in the next game.
I think you're partly right... he's not getting respect at times for the way he attacks the rim. First three games he had 14 free throw attempts... last three games he's had 3. If you go back to late last year, he was probably averaging 5 FTA as a starter and on some nights he was on the line 10 or more times. Part of it is no respect, the other part is because we only have JJ out there trying to put Davis into better positions. Once we get Nelson back, he'll get more opportunities to get an initial advantage on defenders and they'll probably make more obvious fouls. In any case, I really can't wait to see Nelson back to see if it helps BBD settle down more.
