The vision, however faint, of Terrence Ross ever winning a 6MOTY of the Year award is vanishing before my eyes like a tempting desert oasis that turns out to be nothing but a mirage. His chance to win it was last season. Just a few more PPG’s and he would have been right there in the running. Now he sucks and the dream is dead.
The twelve PPG per game that Ross is averaging now is simply not going to do it. As far as I’m concerned, Ross’ chances at being 6MOTY of the year this year are exactly 0.0000% (notice the precision amount of decimal places which indicates how sure I am). Even if he started stepping up his scoring right now, he’s sucked for a full fourth of the season, which is way too much suckage to ever recover from. And there’s not really any indication that he’s done sucking.
This whole thing has depressed me to the point where I’m considering just throwing Ross onto my exclusion list simply so that I don’t have to think about him anymore. When I think about him and his startling decline, which came immediately after a startling rise to prominence, it makes me want to curl up with Japurri under a blanket and never make another NBA highlight video ever again.
