Is Joey G. really in our regular rotation? Or is this just a misinterpretation by NBA.com?
Did he get a brain transplant in the off-season? If not, then he is not in our regular rotation.
Seriously, while people still believe Joey has all the skills, he just needs to get smarter, I think it's more than that. It has a lot to do with his stiffness. In everything he does, he's very stuff. He needs to shed some pounds, get leaner and then work on the intangibles. I refuse to believe a person smart enough to get a piloting license is that dumb (I am not really sure about how smart you gotta be to be a pilot).
Every season coming in, Joey keeps singing the same tune - how he's so much better than the previous year. It's time for him to shut up and do what he was expected to do. First year, he was supposed to be the defensive stopper. The next year, he was supposed to be Vince Carter. The third year, he was the guy who finally got it and also "the most versatile player in the league," - his words.
It's time he lets his play do the talking...
