I've watched that dude his entire career. Believe me, I love him, but that was the hardest part for him to grasp towards the end of his career in NEW YORK, that he was no longer the go to guy. There were times when he should have deferred his shots and he didn't. That's the reason he ended up leaving NEW YORK, because he refused to play for them for less than what he was making and New York wasn't having it.
Now I'd like to believe he's humbled himself in Seattle but he didn't have ONE GAME last year like he did the other night. I don't necessarily mean he'll try to be the man, I'm just saying demanding the ball more instead of getting his points like he did the other night which was mostly on rebounds.
Ask not what you can do for your country but ask what you can do for THE KID!
