That is hilarious, that kid goes at full speed evey play. I don't think he knows how to downshift. But JRich is also quite shaky with his handles...
Jason Richardson has three times the handles of Pietrus. Mickael Pietrus is worse than Murphy used to be. He dribbles the ball up at his chest. He's better suited to catch-and-shoot... but if he MUST put the ball on the floor, he's okay until about 2 dribbles into it. Then he's lost.
That's the sad part. His first step is great. If he had half-decent handles and returned to playing defense he'd be a starter in this league. How hard is it to develop some handles? I have better handles than him.
