Let's criticize Granger everyone! It is fun!

21.5 ppg- first on team

3.5 apg- second on team

4 rbg

1 turnover pg

50% fg, 40% 3fg

PER of 22.4

He is scoring at the same rate, with a higher shooting percentage, and his turnovers are down big time. All against Deng, an awesome defender and against the best defense in the league.

Why are we blaming and criticizing him right now? Why aren't we praising him for stepping up his game from the regular season?

We know he has faults: you can't give him the ball at the end of the game at the top of the key and say "score." We realize that. But maybe we should be asking why we keep putting him in that position. Why not move him around more, try running him off screens, put him in the post... anything.Maybe we should be yelling at the coach to try something else.

You can recognize faults without blaming and calling for a player to be traded, especially when he is the best player on our team by a long shot and is playing pretty dang well. Our starting 4 is shooting under 40% and averaging only 5 rebounds a game yet I don't see post after post complaining he sucks and isn't starting quality?
