7 footer with freakish athleticism. There’s a universe where he has some type of Jermaine O’Neal type of trajectory. Bench player first couple years, too young, then matures and someone finds a way to utilize his skill set properly.
I think the biggest forgotten skill about him is that he had LeBron-esque chasedown blocks. Every time someone tried to go to the rim on a fastbreak with AR on the floor I expected it to get blocked 90% of the time lol.
Luckily for Wiseman, he has greater physical tools and is so mature for his age. Also he has the perfect environment around him to begin his career. Literally a recent championship caliber environment whereas those Warriors in 2008 were on the verge of getting shaken up like crazy.
I've always felt perplexed as to why AR couldnt at least find a role/home on a team. I guess he just couldnt play within himself in order to benefit a team. He was inefficient and was a bit turnover prone. Wiseman I do see some of the same issues (trying too hard, inconsistent defensively), but I feel he has a better head on his shoulders and has a more refined offensive skillset.
