Swiiiiiing batter. Major league whiff.
Perhaps I was bitter; Stevenson was supposed to attend my alma mater - Kansas - out of high school but elected to go straight to the Association. Does he not realize the education he missed on?
The guy is in the league 10 years, made some serious jack in the process, and is a starter on a team in the NBA Finals. Ouch.
Stevenson has started all 15 Mavs postseason games, averages 3.5 points in 15.3 minutes in the playoffs. Stevenson is not much of a threat to score, but the guy guards people and is simply not afraid. Not being afraid is a big deal for coaches, mostly because the coach has to believe his player won't go No. 2 in his shorts during the big moments.
Stevenson is no Dirk, but the guy certainly made me eat it this season.
