Because defenders dont get the big bucks. Everyone wants to be curry, harden, tmac, etc. I damn near shot up my church last weekend because the pastor didnt know who McConnell was.

Most experienced ballers nowadays can shoot well though, at least where I play.

Because they are flat footed. I seen dudes incapable of staying in front of anyone I'm pretty good perimeter defensively so I will get up in someone's face especially if I know they can shoot. A lot of times people will back up because they are lazy or just not interested in defense. For instance, I am a shooter and I look forward to playing against certain dudes at my park because I know I'll be open all game

Are you being serious or sarcastic? Your history makes it impossible to tell. I obviously worded it that way on purpose to make a point.

Yes, you were poking fun at imdaman.

Why do some guys won't have the understanding that people on ISH don't give a shit about using proper English every time they post?
