Although Jordan has started every game he’s played in since 2011, Atkinson has said Jordan has told him he’s ready to assume whatever role the head coach lays out for him. So be prepared for a lot of new and interesting line-ups and rotations … and comments about how winning is all that matters. But at one point out in Las Vegas, Allen made it clear that he wants to be on the court when the ball goes up. “Everybody wants to start, but in this case, it doesn’t matter to me,” Allen said, then added. “F*ck it, yeah, I want to start. F*ck it.”
His free-throw shooting had been historically horrid, to the point he admits he actually used to hide on the court in clutch situations when he knew opponents might foul him and send him to the line. “For me, Hack-a-Shaq sucked a lot. It sucked big time. I used to go hide and [stuff],” Jordan said. “[I thought] I don’t like this. But after years of that, I got a little better at it this past season and I’m shooting the ball a little bit better. I hit a lot of them in practice. I think it’s the 20,000 people [that affected me]. This season I actually didn’t think about anything other than shooting the basketball and it helped me out a lot.”
