Saberstar put it absolutely perfectly and while I've heard others say he's scared, that's sounds a little more rhetorical than he is "not fearless" even though they mean the same thing.Saberestar wrote:He is not fearless, and that's why he doesn't like to go at full speed or strongly in traffic. That's why we usually puts a blind screen for him after he makes a P&R because he needs space to grab the ball and finish around the rim. He needs to catch the ball on a cleared space
You guys are really hard on a 22 year old big man who has to be coached by Monty Williams. Does he do anything right? He passes to your beloved Cam and Bridges non-stop at the expense of his own progress.
How many times on here do I read big men take longer to develop. If Smith is bad are we going to give him the same amount of heat? Yea DA was the 1st pick but it doesn’t matter anymore. He’s on the team and we need to maximize his potential. His potential is a 20+ Ppg 12+ rpg and at least 1 bpg. Right now Monty is minimizing his potential and it shows. He is losing confidence and it’s starting to show on the defensive end now as well. Ayton wasn’t drafted to do what he is being asked to do. He never played on a team where he doesn’t get the ball to score. We don’t need cam Johnson and mikal shooting 10 3s a game a piece while DA is only take 8-10 shots overall. Not how you maximize your assets
