Hinrich struggles with shot in return

| 3 Comments | No TrackBacks

Kirk Hinrich returned to action Wednesday after missing Monday's game with a stomach virus, but he certainly wasn't all the way back.

In the Bulls' 104-97 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers, Hinrich had nine points in 36½ minutes, going 3-for-14 from the field, including 0-for-7 from three-point range.

"I knew it was gonna be a little bit tough because I probably didn't have the calories and the stuff I needed from just all the vomiting," Hinrich said.

"I don't think it affected me too much. My legs felt wobbly at times and I felt I wasn't as sharp as I needed to be."

Capt. Klank has struggled with his shot since he got the big money extension.

Why should a return from the flu be any different?

Historically, Hinrich's shot has always been off. By no means is he an NBA sharpshooter nor an offensive threat. He is the hardwood version of Rex Grossman. How he flies under the media's radar without the scrutiny is a politician's dream. Since he's been a Bull the biggest knock on him has been his haircut.

Kaptain Klank off the rim Hinrich was too dizzy from all his circle dribbling to make his wide open shots.

Klank is a career inconsistent shooter who is too slow to beat any one off the dribble, who is grossly over paid and over rated!
