I have to say I wasn't expecting such a low basketball IQ. Not so much with his defense, but with his offense. I KNEW his percentage was extremely low but I never could figure out why because I never really saw him play in Washington or Philly, or G.S.
I figured it out almost immediately after he joined the Cavs. He has the worst shot selection of any starting shooting guard in the league I think. And he isn't afraid to shoot. Bad combination. If he drove to the hoop more, he'd be a much better player.
