But you have to accept Ben for who he is.
He is NOT a natural scorer. He may score more than 20 on some games, but you should not rely for it to win you games.
Scoring more than 20 for Ben is like asking Carmelo Anthony to average more than 5 assists per game. Sure, they can from time to time. But it’s just not natural for them.
The fact that he’s focusing more on his defense, says that he wants people to stop looking at his offense.
Personally, I’d rather have an average to above average defensive wing that can get me more than 20ppg.
So I guess all we can do is accept Ben for who he is …
Then the question would become whether what he can do worth his contract and the money he got ? Because if the answer is no he may not be long here.
