Him and Clerence Whetherespoon (Baby Barkley)...They Where Supposed To Be Like the MODERN BARKLEYs but None Quite Made It There Do To Injuries and Ofcourse Lack of Level of Play.
I really wish LJ didn't get hurt. His first two years he averaged:
20.6 points, 10.8 rebounds and 3.9 assists
on 50.9% shooting and 79.7% free throws
He was absolutely sick, and was only going to get better if it wasn't for his back.
If he was averaging those numbers today he'd be 11th in scoring and 10th in rebounding.
