Why? A lot of people are making this argument... but I don't understand it. Baron Davis has put up more consistent, all-around, superstar numbers than JRich... is it because Jason scores a couple points more per game with a better %...?
I totally think JR aces out Ray Allen for an All-Star spot, but I also think Baron's better than either of them. Can somebody please draw out a reason for me...?
As much as I like Rich, Allen has pretty much the same averages. One difference is he's done it year after year for nearly a decade. J-Rich is a rising star, but people recognize the players they've seen over and over. Jason will get his due soon.
J-Rich has done more for this team than BD has. Richardson has taken it personal when he hasn't performed well or when the team is down, BD on the other hand seems to disappear at times if things are already bleak. I'm not ragging on BD, but to me J-Rich has more of the killer instinct and attitude. If he had a horrible first half you can almost expect a 20 point second half to make up for it. He is scoring more, with a higher percentage. At times I'd almost rather have BD sit instead of his constant dribbling and propensity to keep the ball to himself a bit.
