Because all summer we heard how he was going to elevate everyone's game here, "elite" players are supposed to do that. So now it's not his fault because his line mates suck? No excuses, Richards has been a disappointment
That's no one's fault but this board's. There was multiple people who watched him in Dallas who said that he wasn't the elite player he was being touted as in FA. He wasn't even the best playmaker on his team last year, idk where all this "elite passing" came from. He was good at SHASing on the PP, but in Dallas he never was one of those guys who could get a pass through 4 people. He got his points by playing smart, great chemistry with Neal and Eriksson, and playing 1:40 average on a decent PP. Not because he's some magical passer.
He'll come around and probably get 70 points, especially if Dubi and Cally can heat up. But it may take a bit for him to find some chemistry, and he's not going to put up 90 points on a PP as horrible as ours is. Especially with Torts shifting him from his strong position every 2 games and not even putting him on the #1 unit. But many people on this boards touted him as more than he was, and now those same people are mad. Only yourselves to blame.
