Michael Redd: Another Superstar Stuck on Bad Team
How often do yo see this-a great talent wasting the prime years of his career on a horrible team. Most of the time the athlete doesn’t escape his team in time enough to have a shot or two at the title. He doesn’t wanna be considered a sellout, he doesn’t wanna abandon his boys/teammates, or he stays for the moola. Some guys do escape, sometimes at the end of their careers, a.l.a. Glen Rice and the Lakers, Finley and the Spurs, etc. As I watch Michael Redd of the Milwaukee Bucks tear up and torch every opponent from range, I can’t help but feel for this guy. One of the best, if not the best outside shooter in the game is rotting away in a subpar eastern conference team. His team is bad, flat out horrible. I don’t care if they have Bogut, Yi Jianlian, or any other “potential” star. Redd dropped 41 points Friday night against Seattle Sonics, and they lost. That’s right, to the Sonics. He’s averaging 23, 5 and 3 per game. It’s just too bad the Bucks can’t get put together a good team. I don’t remember the last time this team was competitive. At 28 years old, Redd ain’t getting any younger. I guess as long he’s healthy and leads my fantasy basketball team to another championship, I’m not going to complain. Too bad that’ll be the closest he ever gets to the title.
