My comment had little to do with Bamba, but with him shooting. And bigs shooting 3s.
Much like 99% of the bigs, he should not be shootig 3s until he learns how to shoot in general, but even learning how to shoot, with addition of muscles in his arms, probably won't be most cost and time efficient thing to. Knowing how much things he has to work on first , like adding strenght ,muscles, post moves, setting screens, pick&roll movment, strenght, stamina and durability in legs...
Also if you drafted 7'10 wingspan center who is 7'1 , to shoot 3s than you are out of your mind or you want to challenge Billy King as worst GM in basketball history.
It's like drafting Iverson to decide to use him as post up center ... LIke , what an actual f**k?
I guess your'e not really in tune with the direction the league is going...
You need your team to shoot 3s, but you don't need every player on your roster to shoot them, but ones who are good at it.
That's my problem with this. It's style over substance ( and logic) . Why would you want bad shooter to shoot more if he can improve on things he is actually decent at ?
Again,why draft 7'10 wingspan , 7 footer if your goal is to have him do nothing with that size but shoot 3s? Why not just trade pick for Markkanen ( or Turner ) who you at least know is capable of doing it? Or trading all the way out of lottery for Mo Wagner, who was decent college 3 point shooter?
As i said, 3 point frenzy for Cs is mirror lunacy of " rim protection" frenzy from few years ago. Just bunch of copycats that see something works for contender so try to mimic it by failing to understand it works because other, fundamental differences like difference between best player being Giannis and second best being MIddleton, vs best player being Gordon and second best player being Ross/ Fournier( assuming in this converstation Vuc is gone ).
Funniest part about "streach bigs" is that become popualr after Bosh sucess with Heat. I guess people forgot that two other guys from that roster... That LeSomething guy and Dw..retired one ... No biggy...It has been Bosh 3 point shooting that carried them, not 60 ppg combined from wings that could not shoot
Why you gotta go that far? You obviously know that nobody is arguing that. Arguing that it's a part of his game that he should develop IS NOT saying that's the ONLY thing he should do. Yes, he should improve on scoring inside and all parts of his game. The fact that he has the confidence to shoot from 3 only broadens his scope of possibilities.
