KG is overrated, IMO. I'm not saying he sucks, but a man of his talent and the players around him, they should be a lot better than they are.

He has a solid squad right now. Mike James and Ricky Davis both averaged 20pts per game before they landed in Minny.

They have enough scoring (James, Davis and Garnett), rebounding (KG, Smith, Griffin), shooters (Hudson, Jaric, James), athletes (Foye, Davis, KG, Griffin, Blount) and a lockdown defender (Hassell) to win.

The guy gets too many excuses for Minny's poor play. He is not a Alpha Dog type of athlete. He defers too much and says he is weakest big in the league in the final two minutes (something like a 32% FG average).

He's a great player, but only as a clear cut number two on a team. He just doesn't have it in him to takeover and demand the ball.
