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.

I don't know about you, but having a 24-year old Top-10 player on a young up-and-coming team is pretty awesome.

Sure he needs to improve on his isolation game on offense, and footwork and scheme understanding on defense.... but that could be said about most young players. As far as I'm concerned he's far from a finished product, and as it stands he's a unique and productive player.

Yes, anyone can get better. But, you don't just become good on defense. Look at Carlos Boozer. It's not he doesn't try, or he doesn't understand the schemes. It's because he has slow feet. He can't do anything about that.

Not sure why you are posting someone else's post, but alright!

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.

He's the Wolves' best player but doesn't have isolation handles or make highlight reel dunks and blocks, so its hard for your uniformed or casual fan to try to understand his importance on the court and to his team.

People see big numbers and low win totals and assume its selfish or hollow play... when its often young players on young teams that haven't figured out how to take what they do thats productive and give it context within a winning culture.

Footwork and position can be improved through practice, quickness can be improved with training, and team defense can be improved though understanding the defensive game plan.

Why do you continue to pass off another person's post as your own? Are you unsatisfied with the responses you can muster up by yourself?
