i'm not lying lol Bonner is putting the ball in the hole at a high %, so by your definition, he's a scorer. the part where your Neal/Bonner argument and the lie of me "lying" falls apart when Bonner AND Neal are in the game for the same purpose: to stretch the floor and shoot 3's. they both do the same thing, so if you're going to label one something, you have to label the other the same.
Yes! Allen though could drive inside at times and finish unlike Neal! He was a great shooter though you are right and thats what he is known as. This is a good post Jose.
Neal is a specialist moreso, a volume shooter at times and that is where the line is drawn on that guy as he can't run the point well (Last year anyways) and he can't defend worth a sh*t out there. He is a guy you like on your team yeah for some clutch shots and threes, but other than that he can't drive the ball to the hoop nor pass like a true PG.
Win or lose this is a game -
You could let it pick your brain for weeks and months, just replay it over and over, won't do you any good at all. When someone loses a loved one and they do that it only brings forth anguish. I feel acceptance is sometimes the key, it happened, now you have to react to it. Giving up is not an option.
