Λοιπόν με το που το έμαθα ότι τον υπογράψαμε τον Ριτσαρντσόν , έστειλα μειλ στον Ben Q. Rock , ο οποίος είναι ο άνθρωπος που έχει το μεγαλύτερο μπλογκ για τους Ματζικ ( συνάδελφος μου δηλαδή ) και σίγουρα καλύτερη γνώμη για αυτόν από όλους μας , μιας που τον έχει δει αγωνιζόμενο .
Έγραψε λοιπόν ( σας το βάζω ακριβώς όπως μου απάντησε ):
Congratulations on signing Jeremy.
He’s probably best suited to the international game, as he was never going to make it in the NBA, and he’s a cut above most D-League players. He only appeared in 12 games (93 minutes) for Orlando last year, mostly in garbage time, so I don’t have much on which to evaluate him. He made the Magic’s roster last preseason because general manager Otis Smith liked his ability to score. But at the NBA level, he hasn’t scored efficiently. What’s weird about Richardson is his inability to convert a 2-point shot. In his career, he’s a well above-average 38.5% on three-pointers, but a horrific 30% on twos.
But in Greece, I expect he’ll be able to get to the basket more easily than he did in the NBA (where stronger, tougher defenders were able to bump him off his drives) and thus have higher percentage opportunities. He’s a decent spot-up shooter, too.
That’s really all there is to his game: scoring.
He’s not much of a defender or a passer. He should have a good career in Greece, though.
Τον λέει λοιπόν με μια μεγάλη ικανότητα … σκόρερ…
Μακάρι λέω εγώ ….
