Let me get started with saying that Brandon is not a star player. He will not bust out for 30 points on any given night. But in this league you have players that are winners and you have players that are not winners. Players such as Monta Ellis, Gilbert Arenas, Jermaine O'Neal, Antoine Walker, or even Allen Iverson are not going to accept shots being taken away for the good of the team. That was the reason that the Karl Malone, Gary Payton, Shaq, and Kobe Lakers ultimately couldn't win it all. However there are other players that are huge in sacrificing stats for their team and being unselfish to help their team win. Players such as Derek Fisher, Scottie Pippen, Tayshaun Prince, Bruce Bowen, and so on and so forth win alot of games and championships for a reason. Each championship team needs a guy or two like this to spread the "love" to their teammates and lead them in the right direction.
You saw Ray Allen scold Nate Robinson and Big Baby for being obnoxious and getting overhyped. You always saw Bruce leading teams to victory and giving pointers to younger players in the NBA. You guys saw it with Mark Jackson.
My point is, alot of you guys see Brandon as a player who doesn't care and shows no emotion, and is a zombie on the court because of his personality. I have a personality alot like his, and when I used to play in High School, I used to be like that whether I made a big play or did something very unintelligent. He doesn't like showing out when he does something good because he feels like he should be doing it all the time. He also doesn't think that showing out is smart. If a team like San Antonio or Boston picked him up, he'd be one of their most valuable pieces right away because while good shooting guards are a dime a dozen, winning players are not easy to come by. When he tweeted "Yeah someones getting shipped" what else is he lead to believe? Some people responded that he is an arrogant tool and thinks that he's the absolute ****, but he's not like that, if you read his tweets you'd know that he's just a man of few words, and that he gets toyed around with by his friends in Kansas. He just wants to win, and stats obviously don't matter to him.
Now we have Paul George. If he turns out good, he'll take the starting spot over him. Brandon wouldn't be upset about that, because it is all about winning. What is wrong with having a low cost winning role player to back up your super shooting guard Paul George? He does what he does, and he just helps teams. He leads without using many words, just like Ray Allen, Michael Finley, and heck Earl Watson do.
So, discuss. How expendable is he? How much are you open to dealing him?
And I ask that I not be too criticized because this is my first post.
