Naz Reid continues to fail to realize that he’s not playing in the G-League right now. Seeing James Harden on the court across from him should’ve been a major clue, but at this point, I’m pretty sure the only thing Reid is seeing right now is the rim.
And I love it.
I’ve said it before with regards to him, but it’s just so nice to see a G-Leaguer come in and chuck like nothing matters. He needed 14 shots to get his 14 points, went 1 of 8 from three in only 17 minutes, and it was FUN. That’s what basketball is supposed to be about, right? Fun? His hair definitely adds to the experience, I might add. He really is a plus-size Chris Clemons.
I kinda figured that his high-volume three-point shooting was something he picked up in college, but I just checked, and nope. Totally reasonable volume at LSU. So then I figured that it must have been something he picked up in the G-League. Again, nope. Higher volume than in college, but still about half of what he’s doing when he gets up to the big leagues. So I have no idea why he thinks it’s a good idea to shoot a three every three minutes he’s on the court, but I’m not complaining. Who would ever complain about something like that?
