So, me and Grizzlies go on a road trip with less than 10 games left in the season. Currently battling for 4th seed instead of a 5th seed against the Golden State Warriors.
We play @ LA. Josh Selby starting PG. He has 8 turnovers but 28 points. High scorer. We get arse fricked by the Lakers , by 29 points.
GOOSE plays like shit, well because, Selby is the worst point guard ever to play the game of basketball.
I feel like I'm watching some JV scrub play like he thinks he is Dwayne Wade. Jacking up shots all over. Taking on 1 on 3 breaks. Essentially killing all team chemistry on the court. Refusing to even use the screens in simple screen and rolls. Passing the ball all over the court. And getting destroyed defensively against Steve Nash (24 points)
I played like shite minus 6 boards, 3 blocks, and a steal. Only 4 points. Of course were Selby putbacks, lol. There were points in the game, where I would literally not even cross halfcourt on our fastbreaks because I knew he wouldn't pass it to me or he'd take a contested layup instead of passing to Rudy Gay for a thunderous dunk. I would just save my turbo and stamina for locking up Kobe the best I could.
I go immediately to the GM after the game. Telling him there is a certain player I don't like to play with. Josh Selby. He says that management and coaching staff has been monitoring it, they agree, and are taking my side. Then that they will deal with him via trade or cutting his playing time.
I go back to the menu, check out the rotation for us. Selby minutes drop from 32 per game to 9. frick YEAH.
Since Conley and Bayless are out for the season and Selby got his arse benched. The only viable option at PG is to make 6'7" Small Forward with 70 rated handles, GOOSE the starting Point Guard. Whatever, lets do this. This is an important stretch of games and we need every win we can get. GOOSE can play every position on the court.
vs the Spurs.
GOOSE goes HAM. 18 points, 14 assists, 8 rebounds, 2 blocks, 1 steal. Rudy Gay and I lit it up with one play over and over and over all night. He ended with 44 points. We blow out the Spurs by 23 points.
So at this point with less than 8 games left in the season and us scrapping for the 4th seed instead of the 5th seed and playing one of our best games all year vs the Spurs, one would think GOOSE is now the starting PG right?
frick NO. 2 games later Selby is the starter again and I'm coming off the bench. At which we lose to the Kings and only beat the shitty fricking Mavericks by 3 points at home.
frickING JOSH SELBY.
