I love Paul and he has done a lot for this franchise so it pains me to say this. Especially after a win tonight. Something needs to be said though because I think a big part of our issues are caused by his shooting woes.
7 games so far this season and he is shooting under 40% from the floor. Only 1 game at 50% or better and that was exactly 50%. He has a game shooting in the teens, one in the 20's, and another barely over 30%. More than half of his games this year would be considered poor shooting nights. Considering he shoots more than any player on the Celtics, and has the worst shooting percentage on the team, shouldn't we be focusing on him as a possible reason we are struggling this year?! The only area he shoots well at is from behind the arc. Maybe it's time to have the Captain reduce his role in the offense and start passing the ball a bit more. I for one would like to see them get Bass a few more jumpers.
Not trying to rip him to shreds. He is definitely still a leader of this squad and should have a role in the offense, however it really ought to be less than it is based on his results. I am getting tired of seeing games with him shooting 6 for 18. It is happening way too often for us to be serious contenders. Everyone on here is ripping Jeff Green and his offensive play, but the Captain is shooting worse. I think its time for you to sit outside the arc and move the ball a bit more please.
Now... Have at me.
