I have no problem with paying otto the max if need be... I just hope they at least try to get him to come down a little. His inability to create for himself at times is fairly disheartening at times. Hopefully he improves considerably in that department.
I hope he works as hard after getting paid as Brad did. Otto needs to stop being allergic to handling the ball, moving forward he has to be able to handle more usage than what he's done.
And it seems like he gets lit up by basically any All-Star caliber wing. His 1v1 defense has to get a lot better
His defense doesn't seem to change pending the player he guards. I remember in a game against the Bulls, he ends up crowding Jimmy B a lot instead of letting him take semi contested long jumpers... he did that the entire game. He is such a cerebral player but sometimes I don't understand his interpretation of the scouting reports... at least with how he plays man defense. I understand a player simply being better then you but his efforts against all star wings is kinda weird at times. Its a good thing his team defense is stellar otherwise it'd really be a consistent problem.
