I would think the offensive philosophy will change and he won’t get as many post ups. But exchanges up high. Pick and roll. Pick and pop. Drive and dish. Drive and finish. 25/12/6 doesn’t seem unrealistic.
Towns is a better scorer than Jokic, but not nearly the passer, or screener or defensive player. He can close the gap in some of those areas. He can be just as good of a player, but it won’t necessarily be in the same way.
Has Jokic improved his defense a great deal this season?
Neither he or KAT were ever good defenders, but Jokic used to be one of the worst centers. I think a healthy Paul Milsap may be hiding that.
