I came across this in 10,000 Takes, a Minnesota Media blog (apparently there's a Minnesota Media to blog about). You know, on SportsCenter you mostly see the game winners. And of course they ran a montage of KG game-winners on the Clippers broadcast last night, so you would think the guy has never missed. But in reality, he's 1 for 4 on potential game-winners in the last 3 games. Of course, 2 of those were with the score tied, and the Wolves eventually won those games in OT. And let's bear in mind that 1 for 4 is not necessarily a bad percentage, when you consider that the clock is short, you have to force a shot, and everybody knows where the ball is going.
But at least a blogger is not afraid to point out the fact. Hey, he's one for four. Take it for what it's worth. A newspaper would pretty much NEVER say that about a superstar.
For my part, I was THRILLED that they threw him the ball 20 feet away from the basket. I blame Dwayne Casey. KG's a huge target; surely you can get him the ball a little closer to the basket and let him work to get a 12 foot fadeaway instead of a 20 foot pull up. He's a versatile player, and certainly capable of making a pull up jumper from 20. But he almost never takes that shot during the game. They should work harder to get him his shot.
