As I wrote in other post, at the very least we can tell he's a genuinely good guy and at least would not want to let down his teammates. For him, it's a matter of accepting and embracing working on the little things. He's making a good effort to box out in the SL games. Still lapses, but you see the effort there.ThumbsUpBaby wrote:Robert has become the youngin whom I'm most excited about. Even more than Tatum. Love how he plays... it's a matter of if he has passion for the game or not.
I hope he continues to work on his perimeter shot to fully turn himself into an elite level player. I've hesitated throwing out this comparison for want of avoiding a wave of mockery, but I envision a Joakim Noah like player as the potential fit if his shot never comes around. Not going to cavalierly project him to Noah's level, just projecting fit based on baseline skill and modest development.
I'd still take a Joakim Noah in a heartbeat, and if that's his floor then I think we're in good hands.
I doubt he'll ever display anything like a Joakim Noah personality. Noah is the son of two celebrities, and turned out to be yet more of a charismatic leader than that would suggest.
