can you show me the numbers that separates Tatum as a significantly better player in his 3rd year compared to a 2nd year player? I don't see it here
Gay averaged a full 3 more minutes per game that season. Also was nowhere near the defender Tatum is. Stupid to even compare the two. Gay was never an all star his entire career. Ridiculous comparison.
Rudy Gay also didn't have multiple All-Star caliber running mates or a top 3 coach. His team won 22 games in 07-08 and 24 games in 08-09. Gay was the #1 option offensively.
So, having all star running mates makes you an all star, or not having them prevents you? You're also blowing your own argument with your own words. Saying Gay was a number one option and the fact he couldn't generate more PPG and make even one all star team speaks volumes.
