I think Jason got it right on the head. If he misses that shot, he’s a selfish scrub who is a cancer to his team. If he makes it? He is a top 3 PG in the league.
Riley is right. It is a make or miss league.
But I think more than making or missing shots, this is a WIN or LOSS league. You know how the saying goes “Winning makes everything okay”. If the Cavs lost game 7, LBJ would become the biggest pariah and joke. Since they somehow won, he is a hero and redeemed his past mistakes.
Now, it is Steph who has become the villain because they lost. He shoots too many 3s. He celebrates too much. If they won? Well we already know what they would say.
