What were Rockets fans smoking when they though that James Ennis could be any sort of a replacement for anybody? I share my part of the blame; my James Ennis 21 Points vid from last year made him out to be a competent scorer when that was simply not the case. And that vid got a lot of views, and a lot of comments from pleased Rockets fans. I’m sorry, but I’m also saying that people need to analyze a players’ whole body of work and not just highlights. That’s asking a lot, I know.
I wouldn’t be surprised if the Rockets FO watched that vid as well, because they’re the ones who got him and are now starting him despite his offensive offense. There’s got to be at least one GM out there who does most of his scouting based on YouTube highlights, why not Morey?
So Ennis isn’t that good this year, but that’s not his fault. That’s how he’s always been. I don’t know why I made this video, I guess because there’s no guarantee that he ever scores more than this. If nothing else, there should be an immortal reminder of Ennis in a Rockets jersey. At least, immortal until my channel gets deleted again.
