I think he gets in more extremely tough games because he likes the game and the action more than some guys, they can sit there every day for 3 years and never play just to get the nuts once.I have watched a lot of Richie and he always gets in bad games because he overestimates his skills and underestimates his opponent's. It seems like Ike is a mover and realizes he should not shoot at the tough shots anymore. Richie still sells out by shooting at them, but in a controlled game, Richie still plays ok. Will Ike put him in enough bad spots to make him sell out? That's really the question.
I know Ike knows how to protect his position. But can he shoot good enough to get them when they are there?
I have played them both. I think it would be a very close match. Richie in his prime would win but now I think Ike may have the advantage at least the last time I saw Richie play.
