I know he looked a bit slow and a little out of shape last night, but it was great to see him on the floor. I will also say that many are painting him as "Jabari out-of-shape", I think he looked better than a guy who has been limited for so long. He looked a little thick and a little slow, but much better than I feared.
Also, his shooting and passing didn't look rusty at all.
I am optimistic that he will be back to where he was pre-injury by January and could become a real contributor for 10-15 mpg. You could put him out with Coby, Hutch, Thad and Luke and he could be a great floor spacer and 2nd play maker.
Pretty much what I expected.
He always had the skillset which was why he was a lottery prospect.
But his issue is his athleticism is limited to the point it makes his overall game much less effective.
I dont think its just out of shape. The guy is pretty much limping and lost all the quickness.
Pretty sure there are better garbagemen they can pick up since he wont guard a chair.
