You've gotta love Metta. Brash, irreverent, funny and either delusional or just a really encouraging teammate.
Apparently, Metta has been pumping Iman up for great things which a great teammate should do. But others might recognize the latest Metta tag as hyperbole. As shown, in the featured video, Iman has been getting words of advice and encouragement from his new teammate who not only sees a great future for the shooting guard, but a great present.
Metta, who fortunately puts a lot of weight on defense says "Iman . . .amazing. I think he is the best shooting guard in the league. Soe people get it twisted and make the mistake of thinking the best players are the ones that can just score. That's totally false."
While Metta may be off a little bit here (remember Dwayne Wade, Kobe Bryant and James Harden?) , there is nothing wrong with challenging his teammate to rise to the high praise.
Eh. Last night's game was rather unimpressive. Very little ball movement and shaky defense in the interior. Al beit, we didn't have Metta or JR and Tyson and Shump didn't play all that much, but with Melo as point forward, we promise to wilt under defensive pressure.
I like Bargnani and Hardaway, though.
@Knicks FanaticYou found something to like?
@Tman I love basketball and I don't favor living life miserably -- life is too short - so I am always looking for a bright spot even in a dark cloud. Bargnani is certainly not what he once was, but he knows how to play ball and he can shoot. Will he stay on the floor? Well, I have no idea.
