KP looks fantastic, lean muscles and improved core strength. He is 7'3 with great mobility for that height, you don't want to mess that up. Also, why would anyone want to turn him into a traditional center? Let him be the next Dirk for eff's sake. That's his game, that's how he is going to become a superstar. Sure you add a little this and that to it, but that should remain his bread and butter.
Agreed but the chicken-and-egg problem with KP is that one of his key strengths and what would elevate him from Dirk is his shot blocking ability, which in today's league would be better utilized when he is put at the 5 rather than at the 4 wherein he has to chase guys at the perimeter.
