he's a rookie. he's going to be a good player for us and he's a building block. just hit the rookie wall
I think he doesn't have a lot of confidence right now. has to hurt getting your jumpshots blocked even when they are sagging off lol
Likely he's thinking way too much. He just needs to let the game come to him; I'm sure he's hearin' that from Dunlap.
He was out almost the entire second half tonight. It doesn't make much sense, the team seems to be better when he's in.... idk why his minutes are decreasing
He's a consistent jumpshot away from avg'ing 16 & 8 next year as a 20 year old SF. I'm not worried about him in the least.
Good points. We're probably making the right approach with him I was just somewhat worried but all this makes sense
Did anyone see that one foul they called on MKG against Kirilenko on an inbound in the first half? There was at most very light incidental contact, which happened when AK swam his arm over top of MKGs. The ball wasn't in play, nobody was hindered or stumbled - it was like the ref inadvertently blew his whistle, but felt that since he couldn't unblow it, well he must make a call.
I know its a matter of getting the rookie treatment from the refs, but he seems to never get the benefit of the doubt. He does make some dumb fouls, but its frustrating to see him put out early by the refs because of some ticky tack fouls more often than not. If he was given the leeway of Avery Bradley or Tony Allen, he might shut the league down.
It is mostly foul trouble to be honest, He has only played over 25 minutes all of January. I think he is just taking some time to adjust his defense to the NBA. You can see him wanting to play really physical strong defence and not let guys get away from him, but is picking up fouls while attempting to do so. He just needs to find a happy medium where the NBA refs are happy with him and he can still affect the game, but he still makes things happen like saving that out of bounds ball today which lead to the Hendo 3
