This is why I think he's going to be a better/more valuable player when he's over 30 then in his "prime" right now at 26. Once his legs go, he'll have to compensate for it to keep his career afloat.

I actually wish he'd use his athleticism more. He takes way too many jump shots. If he went to the hole more, he'd be way better. I think he fell in love with the three in China because who the hell was going to tell him anything different? He was killing it over there. If he went to the hole, how many people are honestly going to try and block him with all that vertical he possesses? This is the NBA, but guys still shy away from getting dunked on *cough Tyson Chandler cough*
