Oscar Robertson Takes Another Shot At Steph Curry, Says Buddy Hield Is A Better All-Around Player Because He’s Not Just A Shooter
Last month, basketball great Oscar Oscar Roberton went on a pretty insane rant saying that Steph Curry would not have been as good a player in his era because he would have been defended better.
If I’ve got a guy who’s great shooting the ball outside, don’t you want to extend your defense out a little bit?” Robertson said. “I just don’t think coaches today in basketball understand the game of basketball. They don’t know anything about defenses. They don’t know what people are doing on the court. They talk about analytical basketball and stuff like this.”
Yesterday, Robertson took another shot at Steph while praising Oklahoma Sooners star Buddy Hield.
“I don’t think any of these players can guard him, just like Steph Curry, they can’t guard him,” Robertson said. “Plus, [Hield] can go inside and he can rebound. It means a lot also other than being [a shooter], he’s a great basketball player.”
I’m not sure why the Big O has a huge hard-on for Curry but saying the only things teams needed to do is extend their defense is so mind-dumbingly dumb considering Steph is hitting damn near half-court shots on a regular basis
I would like to see Mr. Robertson guard this type of shit in his day.
Also implying that Hield is a better all-around player than Steph because he can rebound is absurd considering Steph averages 6 assists and 5 rebounds a game against the best players in the world.
