If he wasn't doing what he was told on offense, and defense, he would not start or play. Dunlap wouldn't put up with that. Actually Dunlap has said before they are working with Byron and teaching him on both ends of the floor. We're only just over 10 games into the season...stop flipping out now just because a guy isn't playing amazing every night. Fact is; Byron is 23 years old and has limited experience on the NBA level. He's still learning just as Kemba, Bismack, etc are.
He's averaging 8.8 rebounds after last night, nothing to complain about there. He's rebounded quite well. He needs to improve on the defensive end but even guys like Bis(defensive specialist!!!) haven't rotated well in spots and have been beat down repeatedly in the post.
How about Haywood last night? He didn't do shit. Pretty sure he had 1 rebound entering the 4th quarter. If that was Byron people would be going absurd.
Just relax people, we're 6-5...what we have going now obviously is working nicely. Let these guys develop...after all we are a team in the "rebuilding" stage with a lot of young players and Byron is one of them.
