respectability for the Raps for 2 seasons. Here is his career
briefly, according to me ('standardized rates').

His Toronto subcareer looked like an upcoming Isiah Thomas, but
apparently things didn't go well, and he went to Portland and became,
uh, Rod Strickland?
The plunge in shooting efficiency, and coincident loss of shots and
minutes, upon going to Portland, might mean the Blazers traded for
this scorer and put handcuffs on his shooting hand; or, his shot went
missing, and he was subsequently told not to shoot.
There is a definite inverse correlation between his scoring and his
assists, in Portland, though they seem to add up to about the same
total each year (adjusting for minutes).
Personally, I think it says a lot about a player if, when asked, he
can average 20 points. It seems the weaker teams need these guys,
and the game needs these guys.
It also says a lot if a guy can become the role player, and subdue
his appetite for scoring. I can't think of a good reason why a guy's
shooting pct should plunge 50 points when he isn't the go-to guy. If
anything, being more selective should boost one's efficiency. But
then, there is something called "scorer's mentality".
It may be a coaching flaw, or bad team chemistry, both suspects in
the Blazers' case.
