Wow, Book is looking very good as a 3PT shooter at those highlights, but was the offense really that bad ? No open shots for him, no ball movement at all.

Bill Simmons just needs to shut up and respect Book's decision.

If Booker were on team USA and they were struggling the way they are he'd be getting most of the criticism. Instead its a bunch of players I keep seeing people say are better than Booker, yet he's still catching flak.

Hopefully Booker stays healthy and plays the entire year the way he finished last season. I'd really like to see him go on a revenge tour, because you know he's kept all the receipts for the crap that has been flung at him for the teams dysfunction.

I just listened to them discussing it a bit on the Lowe Post. I did say earlier I wish he would have played because I thought it would be good to play under Pop who was emphasizing defense and ball movement, plus just playing in meaningful games, etc. They mentioned how some of those guys on the 2008 olympic team and how all those guys had their best years the next year. They also talked about how Nash said he felt the 2000 olympic experience was extremely important for him and changed the trajectory of his career.

The positive is he is focusing on his health so hopefully he can be 100% healthy most if not all the year this year. Too many nagging injuries last year.

The dude is 22.

He already has a 70pt game on his resume and over his last 3 seasons he's averaged 24.3pt 3.9reb 4.9ast 0.9stl 2.2x3pt and 44/86 splits.

People need to get off his back, for the past 3-4 seasons he's lucky if he's had 2 legit NBA starters on the floor with him at all times.

Book does not stop working on his game. Great.
