It's not like he was moody and sulky without cause. He was supposed to be one of, if not the main piece to build the Bucks team around (then Giannis happend).
He was out for over a year busting his a$$ to come back and play... He wan't getting playing time, they were limiting his minutes (after his restrictions were lifted), when he was playing, he wasn't getting the ball when playing with Kris and Giannis . This can be frustrating and make players disengage on defense. Not just Jabari.
The Bucks very well could have been intentionally keeping his playing time low to keep his qualifying offer low, as well as not allowing a large sample size for other teams to see. With the Bucks being against the cap, it is a very smart and likely scenario.
It is a very smart stradegy from the team/business payroll wise and retaining Jabari, but you can create bad blood with your player, which they did.
There were many games last year where Jabari looked like rookie Giannis not getting the ball passed to him.
I don't know if it was a combo of the team/coaches were sending a message, afraid that Jabari was goin to cut into them getting theirs?, that if you don't pick it up on D, you aren't getting the ball?, just unsure how to incorporate him back into the team or what?
Jabari was trying to be vocal in order to get more playing time to prevent what is currently happening in free agency. It didn't work.
You can't prove yourself if you aren't on the floor. If you don't have the ball and if you suck on defense you are not going to help your team much.
He was hesitant.
His double hops after dunking made my stomach drop.
He was not confident in his knee and it showed. I don't know many players who wouldn't be.
Yeah Giannis and Khris not passing him the ball is the reason for him not playing D, sure why not.
Gianni was also the problem in Duke and his fault why he is not even try sometimes to return back to D.
Khris fault for not even know where he must be on D.
2 years ago most of Jabari baskets were asisted by Gianni but i didn't see better D back then too.
And a question, how bad 11 shots per game in 24 mins are for someone to say "i'm not going to play d"? And he was out half a season because of a big injurie, what he expected? to shoot 20?
The real problem is his head, he see his teammates like enemies and he is leaving in his past glory, you never see him happy if he is not involving, at least he looks like that.
A guy like that is not a good team player and no he didn't deserve more playing time and for sure he didn't do anything to deserve a better contract.
JEIS seems to own Jabaristan island all to his lonesome. Jabari doesn’t even wanna be there.
