Dude seriously. How hard is it to admit you are flat wrong.
I think we just got another notch in comparing him to Wiggins.
40pt game with Kat 40pt game. Check.
All the things making that possible one game vanish the next. Check.
Inefficient chucker outside a couple huge games each season? Let's hope not.
Dude shot 10% on 10 2s Friday. Afraid to drive hard at rim Friday.
Friday really surprised me from him and that's coming from someone who didn't cherish his 30% from three the night before, but loved the 61% from 2 in that game.
From 61% on 18 2s to 10% on 10 2s.
Young players are inconsistant. I get it. But these are swings reminiscent of something.
Reminds me of nearly every Timberwolves player for the last 20 years.
I think you may be over extrapolating a little. Wiggins didn’t get to the rim enough because he would be stripped of the ball. When he got frustrated by the defense he settled for mid range jumpers. Ant’s problem wasn’t getting to the rim, it was finishing. Now I am the first to jump on people for doing stupid things, but I will never criticize Ant for getting to the rim. I honestly believe 9 nights out of 10 he will finish at a respectable rate. I also believe if he got whistles in the first half he would have been more confident in the second half. I will grant you he had a miserable game. I will grant you he maybe shouldn’t be taking 18 shots on an off night. I will grant you KAT needs to take much more than 12 shots for us to win. But I am sorry I will not fault him for doing the right thing and attacking. I don’t care if he misses 30 of the next 30 at the rim. When he corrects his game and can finish there he will be that much more dangerous.
