Which is why it's so frustrating moving forward... if we sign him for the max we're going to have an inconsistent star for years to come. But if we let him go we have no one of his caliber to replace him.
until the warriors find a legit backup pg, there's no way BD can expend this type of energy for 40+ minutes and play at the level he did last night. inevitably there ARE going to be games where he just doesn't have it. he just has to pace himself and pick his spots to take over the game.
i felt bad for BD when the tv camera zoomed in on parker, chillin' and resting on the bench, and the next shot was BD, STILL on the court w/o a rest, dripping sweat, having to be all-everything for the team.
the same thing happened with the new orleans game, shot at CP resting, BD huffing and puffing.
and no other point guard in the league has the kind of responsibility that BD has to the warriors...no one.
