i understand what he is saying here and it makes complete sense.
he value of bigs that can guard the pick and roll is skyrocketing right now. DeAndre is a name that is thrown out there by media, but his game and body are more like Tyson Chandler when he first came into the league. his versatility defensively will give him an NBA career, but the notion that he can't be a successful pro because he couldn't score on this one guy in college (ND's Conaughton) is a little unfair.
