Will he be an all league defender in the NBA? Who the hell knows? But he does hang his hat on defense and some day if he gets a shot to play big minutes he has a game that reminds me of Spreewell. And please don't run with I'm saying he's the re-incarnation of Spreewell....just similar skill set.
OK, I can understand that, I just thought you were saying he's an ALL-NBA defender, already. He's got potential, that's for sure. From what I see he's inconsistent in his stance, reaches and gets off balance a little too often, and sometimes out of position on the weak side---all normal for a rookie. I think he's going to be very good at that end and shows glimpses of it. I can see why he shouldn't get much playing time at this point, though.
