He got stronger in the offseason and improved his game and at only 19 its hard to find a player like that.

Please dont even compare him to Marvin Williams because they are 2 completely different players. Marvin was never "polished" with a legit skillset nor was an impact player in the college ranks. He was an athlete with the upside to be a versatile 3/4 in the NBA and was drafted far too high in one of the dumbest draft moves in NBA history.
