Mind if I multiquote again? Okay good...
And second, Tyrus' numbers are nice for 25 minutes, I'm not arguing that. But its not some incredible feat as you claim. These other players were similar in 25 minutes. I just used 36 because its more acceptable and tangible, but if you want 25 minutes, then their production was just the same in that time allotment as well. So that means, under both your metric and my metric, I was right. No twisting of facts, or any tortured reasoning - its plain and simple correct, nothing more to argue against.
Basketball IQ, offensive and defensive awareness are things that will hold Mully back. He's not a transcendent one of a kind big man that we just don't understand. If you can't apply potential and talent into actual production on the court, then was this talent really that good in the first place? Mully has to prove it on the court, consistently, first before you can make a claim like you have. I'm sorry, thats just how it is.
Stars have that drive to become great like what Jordan, Kobe, and Lebron have.
