Hmmm, I thought he had a great post-up game, but he just found it boring to play in the post...

I believe his post up PPP is in the top 10% in the league, so he's efficient. His problem is his lack of moves. IIRC, 80% of the time he either passes out of the post (there's almost always 3 enemies staring straight at him when he posts up) or does a drop-step. Not much versatility.

Always said it to be true, you can't experience success without first tasting failure.

I don't know of too many people (maybe pauk and 1 or 2 others at the most) that were saying that he had a great post game. Many were saying that it was not as horrible or as abysmal as some of those carfefully selected gifs in the past were depicting. They also were also saying that the difference between him winning and not winning a championship had little to nothing to do with him developing a better post game.
