It's an excuse and rationalization for the fact that his offensive game is poop.
He's not a reliable scorer by any means.
Bam's got no real go-to move.
He isn't an elite finisher for his position.
He hasn't really figured out the correct speed of the game; often plays too fast and gets reckless/clumsy or is too slow to react and allows the defense to adjust to his position.
His passing is also overrated. The dribble hand-offs account for a good amount of his assists.
He does possess great potential but is still a very raw player.
I have to be honest here I'm as big a fan of Bam then most people but what he said is a load of crap, he is capable of doing both getting his teammates involved and getting in attack mode when he needs to. Bam needs to take more notice of moments he can aggressive getting 4 or 5 assists from Bam a game is way less valuable than if he was aggressive.
Also being aggressive doesn't just have to be putting up shots. He could be aggressive dominating the boards or on the defensive end. He didn't do much of any of it tonight and without Jimmy we really needed it today.
What specifically is a load of crap?
Does he have a go-to move?
In your opinion, is he an elite finisher for his position?
Has he mastered the speed of the game?
Does he not rely a lot on dribble handoffs to inflate his assist totals?
BTW, the criticism increases now because there's an expectation that comes along with him signing a max contract.
