Excuse me.... what?!?!?!
That's like the biggest reason why Koufos is starting instead of McGee. McGee survives almost purely on athleticism, that's it. I don't see McGee ever being a consistent 30+ mpg player. He will definitely have good, maybe even great stretches, but his low IQ, low BBIQ and lack of fundamentals are what are going to ultimately hold him back from ever reaching his potential.
Don't get me wrong, he's gonna spend a lot of years in the NBA based on his size alone, but don't get too high on this guy ever panning out anywhere near his potential.
