“..After 2 TOs that I had, I just felt that .. I had to be aggressive and make plays, ya know stopped trying to … deliver so much trying to make tough passes. It’s like if I have a shot, just take it, trying to get to the heart of the defense. I knew we’re in the bonus, too Obviously it put a lot of pressure on them, trying to defend without fouling”
This tells us the mind of a pass-first PG who’s aware of game situation that the Cavs are in the bonus (foul penalty) so he tried to drive to the heart of the defense and make good shots or get fouled. MJ, this is your Point Guard of the future. Make him an offer he can’t refuse. He just beat #1 Cav squad with full-strength by empowering the Hornets to play team-ball. The crowd is rocking, you stood up for the clutch plays …Don’t wait for too long =-}
