I fully acknowledge he's a piss-poor defender and doesn't have the impact your "ordinary" (elite) big man does. Does that mean he's void of impact and/or able to make the players around him better? Smarten up.
Most of his points (Outside of FTs) come from offensive rebounds and spot up jumpers. That's a big issue right there. He's not that good at creating his own shot.
Defensively he is porous. Sometimes embarassingly bad. He's slow footed and surprisingly easy to abuse in the post. He doesn't get you blocks or steals, either. Far too ground-bound.
He's a decent passer, but so what? Almost everyone in the league is a decent passer.
Remember, the stats he put up last season were on a really, really bad team, devoid of scorers and rebounders. That undoubtedly contributed to his inflated numbers. He's a borderline top 10 player, and that's probably very generous.
