But throughout the season it will be up to Dray and the coaching staff to teach him how to defend without lowering his arms or biting pump fakes. One hand close to the opponents hip and one hand in the air is enough for Wiseman to guard anyone on the floor if he is strong enough. He will not need to jump to trouble anyone matched against him. And if he doesn't bite the pump fakes, him jumping right after his opponents shoots should just give him enough time and space to block the shot because of his athleticism, height and Wingspan
And I agree up to a point. His mentality is an open question, and that can hamstring all of it.
At the end of the day, it's better he gets the foul trouble than Draymond or any of our other core players when they guard bigger players so they will be fresh for crunch time
