11.5 PPG, 4.5 RPG, 2.9 APG, 0.7 SPG, 0.4 BPG, and 1.5 T/O per game
Shooting 40.6% from the field, 28.5% for 3, and 77.8% from the line
IN 31.5 MINUTES A NIGHT
It's got nothing to do with his money, with how high he was drafted, or any of that pressure BS: its because the guy just plain doesn't have any game.
Mike likes to claim his game is "all-around". That's a joke. How many players in this league CANT average 11 points, 4.5 rebounds, and under 3 assists IN OVER 30 MINUTES A NIGHT...?
Mike is a morbid shooter, too. The so-called "good, not great" shooter is under 35% from the arc for his career. Not Ray Allen? No ****? I thought ALL great shooters shot 34% for 3...?
Dunleavy (and ONLY Dunleavy) considers himself a playmaker. Yeah. Right. A 'play-maker' who commits a turnover for every couple of assists he dished out (and that's being GENEROUS; the guy averages 2.5 assists and 1.6 turnovers a game on his career).
Why do Warrior fans hate Mike Dunleavy...?
At least, not anymore.
Because he's not our problem anymore.
We all had a GREAT time watching him go 4-for-15 against us on the 5th (attemping a season-high NINE three pointers, and only making 3 of them).
Warriors fans LOVE Mike Dunleavy now. His 37 minutes were a HUGE reason we took the Pacers for 15 points WITHOUT Jason Richardson or Baron Davis.
If you're wondering what's so bad about Mike... give him another 20 games. You'll see.
you forgot his amazing "handles" - deadly til defended
