He's gotta be better from the line. His shot and free throw shooting has been uncharacteristically off.
Who cares about his jumpshot? What's really concerning is his inability to finish around the rim. He misses layups, he gets blocked, he has no explosion whatsoever. He used to have such a killer first step, now he can't get any separation.
If he could make some layups his jumper would start falling.
