The Nets want Travis Outlaw to take 17 shots a game……what?!

Yup, we’ve lost all touch with reality. According to Travis Outlaw’s father John, Avery Johnson wants Travis to take 17 shots per game this season. This has made John confident in his son’s ability in turning back into the mediocre role player that he once was.

The “duh” moment of the day: his story makes absolutely no sense. Avery Johnson can have questionable judgement, but any individual with common sense would know that giving Outlaw 17 shots per game wouldn’t solve anything. Anywhere. For any reason.

Hopefully, Avery was just using hyperbole as a way to boost Outlaw’s oft-shaky confidence. If not, we could be in for a very painful 12-13 season.
