Part of (but not all) Jalen's problem was that the Pacers Nation was not ready to have somebody other than Reggie be the best player on the team.
Heck, I wanted Jalen to shoot more often than he did. I thought he deferred to the team/ Reggie too much.
Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
And life itself, rushing over me
Life itself, the wind in black elms,
Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you
For all of JRose's shooting ability he more than made up for it with his preference to carp at the zebras while his man ran up court for an easy layup.
I will say it was absolutely the most fun I've ever had when Reggie and Jalen would get on a 3 pt barrage and then Croshere would nail one too. I saw it several times and almost wet myself each time.
If you get to thinkin’ you’re a person of some influence, try orderin’ somebody else’s dog around..
