I recognize the frustration with Kat, but he is learning how to play. Trade him or otherwise look to get rid of him? Why let him use his experiences earned here translate into wins for his successor teams? Take the bad now, learn from it, move on.
This is his 7th season though.
I know that he doesn’t have much playoff experience so that’s new, but still after 7 years you should kind of know what you have. Having said that, I’m still undecided on whether I want to be rid of him. I’ve gone back and forth 3 times this year alone. Might just have to live with the fact that he’s an extremely talented but frustrating player.
If he has a bad call go against him, he doesn't seem to let it go and that leads to more mental mistakes.
Last night he had a call or two go against him and he took some bad shots at times, but he shook it all off and came through in the clutch.
Agree. He has to control his emotions better and minimize all the mental mistakes he makes.
And a mojority of the fouls he commits are pointless. I don't even know what he's trying to accomplish. Stupid wrestling matches 20 feet from the basket. Going over the top for a rebound he has no chance of getting. Blatantly shoving a defender out of the way with a forearm when a fundamental basketball move would suffice.
Most of them are fairly obvious, easy calls for the ref to make. And then he reacts like the ref just shot his dog.
I used to always say the four fouls they give me before they make me go sit down (5 in NBA) are precious gifts. You have to use them wisely and get your money's worth.
