Rudy Gay is one of the most underrated players in the league. Every year this guy does so much for the Memphis Grizzlies and never gets any recognition. Fellow teammates Marc Gasol and Zack Randolph get most of the praise. They get the All Star appearances, but not Rudy Gay.
He gets around 20 points a game, shoots the 3 point shot well and is a highflyer. Teams should be signing this guy to huge offer sheets every time his contract is almost up. I don’t get it. I honestly don’t know why he is viewed so low on the NBA totem poll.
The man is a Human Highlight Reel, and yes I took Wilkins nickname, but it’s true. The man is an amazing dunker. Not a dunk champion, because the dunks he did weren’t flashy dunks. They were as Charles Barkley said “He dunks like that in a game and with people on him”.
The only knock to him, is that he was injured the year they beat the top ranked Spurs in the playoffs. Rudy didn’t play at all and they blew past the Spurs. So people think they are better without him.
I think he should just go somewhere else. Might as well, you’re getting no love in Memphis. It doesn’t matter what he does, he will still won’t get the recognition he deserves. Only if he goes to a team that can win a championship then his stock will go up.
I hope he makes the All Star game this year. He has the potential to do so. Memphis has a chance to make it deep in the playoffs and Rudy Gay has to lead them there because the West is so stacked up that they need a player like Gay to elevate them above the rest. They need to unleash him. Let’s see what happens.
