I am not saying he's the second coming, but you saying he's just another big who can hit threes and block shots is just absurd and illogical. You also say he has no go to moves and has poor positional defense...HE'S 21!! In year 2!! Give the kid time to get even better. I'll say it again and again, go look at other players' 2nd year stats, you'll be surprised how much better they are now.
Look at Jokic's first year, Cousins' second year, Gasol's first three years, etc. Guys improve.
No. Mofo's don't get to pick and choose. Mofo's hated Tim Hardaway JR in his second year. Where was all of this "patience" talk then? It was OK to be critical of his skill set and what he was actually showing us as a second year player but not with KP?
