NBA Finals Thoughts: Bron’s Supporting Cast

In 2008 NBA Finals, 2008 NBA Playoffs on June 3, 2008 at 8:44 pm

Some perspective for Celtics fans

For the series Wally scored 10.7ppg. Delonte West scored 11.4ppg. Ilgauksas scored 11.9ppg. They were the only players to average more than 8 points a game after LeBron. Joe Smith was the only other above 5points at 7.6ppg.

Some perspective ….. Farmar, Sasha, Radmanovic, Fisher, Walton are all capable of scoring 10-12 points on any given night. That’s 5 players capable of matching Wally’s/West’s scoring output and for my money every single one of them is better than Wally or West. Walton is the only one that shoots below 37% (Fish, Sasha, Rad above 40%) from three point range. Even then Luke Walton has three point range (33% this season), after shooting 39% from downtown on 124 attempts last season. Then you have Turiaf who isn’t as bad offensively as Varajeo or Wallace.

And oh yeah those two other messers ….. Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom. Getting the picture of some added difficulties here?

This is a whole different type of fight than it was against LeBron James.
