He we will be better as long as Phil Jackson is the coach there, he benefits very much from the Triangle Offense, im sure once he plays more with the starters he will learn to catch those passes. He wont be a Jermain because hes not as athletic as Jermain, but he is quick and has good inside post moves from time to time, hes not gonna be a fines center, but the problem is Kareem is trying to make him more fines and thats what could break him. I see him as a 1-2 All Star player, a 16/9/3(assists). Oh yes he can pass

Default Role Player

I agree with most of the folks here who said he will be a role player. Look, Ben Wallace is a role player and he does some incredible things. So, its not like being a role player is a bad thing.

That being said, he seems to be responding to Phillip, so hopefully they can maximize his effectiveness for the team. I sure hope he works hard during the off-season!

good point. he also scores more but Ben is flashy when he blocks shots...and his hair catches attention...which is why hes an all star almost every year
