On the right team he is. On a team that revolves around a black hole he's not. When Al was out and they pushed and moved the ball he looked like he could be on a team that can put the ball in other guys hands.
At least 5 of Al's missed shots are missed tip-ins. He was 5-10 at the half. I hadn't seen him miss a "real" shot. That's how many shots he got out of the offense--five.
And he never threw his team "under the bus." He said that because no team has ever come back from an 0-3 deficit and, as he went on to say, he believed the Spurs were the champions. He never said he didn't get any help, that his teammates and coach sucked, nothing like that. He was a defeated man, but he didn't throw anyone under the bus. He shouldn't have said what he said, but I'm sure you intentionally twisted the meaning of that phrase for your regular anti-Jefferson discourse.
I won't even argue with your last point because no one else was making a goddamn shot. That's the reason we should have kept feeding Al, because he was abusing the paint, absolutely abusing it. Make them double team hard
so as to open up the lane for more cutters or open shots for the people who were actually making shots--Foye and Hayward.
The team played better under Tinsley. That's something you've repeatedly said. So don't give me this bullshit to fuel your indirect defense of Millsap by way of deflecting responsibility.

It's a pretty awful language.
