Why does this guy garner so much attention? I recognize that he helped the Celts down the stretch, but I feel like people talk about him like he's the missing link. "Can the Celtics do without him?" "Are the Hornets poised for a championship now that they've signed him?"
The guy gets about 7 pts, 4 rebounds and shoots in the low 40% . He's a decent 3-pt shooter and free throw shooter, a good not great defender.
Only last summer it seemed like nobody really wanted him. I think of him as a middle level role player. Does he really have the magic touch? Is he the new Robert Horry? Someone please enlighten me.
