    Totally. This season is already a disappointment. No wonder TRG demanded a trade.

    BL, you were very close in your guess.

    So, overall, less than 10 guys in the NBA did what Jennings did last year (10 or more games with at least 30 points).

    I'm going to be very open minded here and assume that not many guys would be able to shoot at that volume on the Bucks and have high efficiency. Let's hope that he shoots less with us and that he gets more open 3 point attempts.

    On the other hand, does it mean that he is quite inconsistent or that he is a team player and does what team needs, i.e. scoring, or setting up others and deferring?

    I think an offensive player who only allowed his teammates to roll the ball inbounds to him and then spent the entire 24 seconds of the shot clock trying to stop anyone from picking it up would get more love from the blogosphere than these "chuckers".
