    I disagree. You are a lot less likely to chase after a loose ball or try to snag a rebound if you aren't confident you can get to it. Offensive struggles can effect the entirety of your game, especially when that is the aspect of your game that stands out against the teammates you are competing for minutes with. Daye is a better shooter than Prince, Jerebko, and Wilkins, but his shot isn't falling. This doesn't excuse a lack of effort on the court though. He needs to handle this stretch better, no question.

    A young player struggling offensively and feeling like he's getting squeezed out of the rotation tuning out isn't uncommon. If he doesn't turn it around, then he'll be out of here. Though there are likely teams willing to give him a chance without as much of a log jam, so it's not as if his career is in jeopardy.

    If Daye played half as fearless as that Chandler Parsons kid does for the Rockets, he'd be fine.

    At the moment Daye's trade value is a late second round pick in the 2018 draft.

    Kind of reminds me of watching Lindsey Hunter leading the break. Just ugly.

    LMAO! This kid is all set for the Dirk-league. I was about to write "you can gather low lights like this from any player if you look at a full season" but then I realized Daye has played ~10 min in total. He even facepalms himself in the beginning of the video.

    The collection of awesomeness in the article:

    I' starting to believe that Austin is to weak (and soft) physically, as well as mentally, to cut the mustard in this league. There is a remedy, develop a lightning quick release and this is no longer an issue. The missed shots I can deal with, but that other crap..........

    Meh, Daye doesn't look like he has the mental fortitude to deal with fluctuating minutes/mistakes in games. This guy is such a momentum killer it's almost like he plays for the other team.

    Daye's PER has sky-rocketed out of the negatives and now sitting pretty at a gaudy 0.1

    http://www.basketball-reference.com...6mult=1.0&c6stat=&order_by=per&order_by_asc=Y


    Jamaal Magloire now has the unfortunate mantle of worst player in the league who is averaging at least 10 minutes per game. Magloire is also in the top 5 according to the other PER (Punk Effectiveness Rating). Those players are currently ranked thus:

    1. Juwan Howard
    2. Carmelo Anthony
    3. Jamaal Magloire
    4. Andres Nocioni
    5. Jermaine O'Neal
    6. Kevin Garnett
    7. DeMarcus Cousins
    8. Anderson Varejao
    9. Ron Artest (MWP)
    10. Stephen Jackson

    Metta slips out of the top 5 on the back of his recent charity work. He will need to sort that out if he hopes to reclaim top spot.

    Dirk 2.0 finally gets some recognition:

    http://www.hickory-high.com/?p=3110

    The 2.0-crew is doing great - Wade 2.0 is out of the league, Malone 2.0 has aldready been cut by two teams and Dirk 2.0 has become Darrick 2.0.

    Edit:

    He was just a few boards from the double.

    I feel like Daye is going to be joining other Pistons diamond in the rough legends like Walter Sharpe in being out of the league when his time with the Pistons is up.

    Calling him mentally weak is an understatement. I can't watch him flop his arms around in disgust anymore. Unless the Pistons are willing to bring his life coach aboard full time, it might be time to move on.

    You are correct but we had two Wade 2.0 - Stuckey and White.
