I must say, that since Larry Hughes started running the point since Boobie Gibson when to the injured list, we've been looking a lot better. He's a lot better of a player when he's pass first, shoot second. All year long he's been forcing so many stupid shots, and he's not a good jump shooter. But with running the point, the offense seems a lot more fluid, and it's making Hughes look a lot better. I think we need to keep this lineup and see how it goes, and if it continues to excel, we have to keep it. Sasha or Boobie can start at the 2. Hopefully when Boobie comes back, Brown still gets a solid 5-10 minutes a night, and Snow and Wesley stay on the f'n bench where they belong or get very limited minutes. I'm so sick of that all ready. Snow especially ruins everything about our offense.
I really think that Larry Hughes has mental issues in the basketball world. I'm not being funny and I'm not saying he's mentally challenged, or that he has problems in society either.
It's just that when he plays the point, he drives to the hoop.
When he plays shooting guard, he takes stupid shots, particularly jump shots.
During a recent interview in the Plain Dealer, he was quoted as saying he feels more comfortable with the ball in his hand at point guard because he feels he has more time in the shot clock to create.
He said when he plays shooting guard, he feels compelled to do just that... shoot.
Let's be honest, there's no great mystery to why Hughes is playing better. He's taking better shots. He's being aggressive and driving to the hoop.
I used to think he was afraid of getting hurt, since he's played so many seasons with under 82 games.
But now I think he definitely has a problem in the way he approaches the game mentally.
The idea that he has to play point guard to be aggressive and drive is the most retarded thing I've ever heard in my life.
