Can someone please explain to me how he's talented?
He's actually very athletic for a big man, he just doesn't have explosive vert. He can shoot, usually pretty consistently out to 18 feet in the midrange area. And he's got great passing skills for a player this young at his position. His problem is that he doesn't know his limits. He will often try to do too much to create, which ends up in a bad shot or turnover.
