Yeah, I don't mean anything when I joke about his speech issue, b/c from what I've noticed, it's not a speech issue at all. It's a social anxiety issue, which I completely understand and relate to. It's clear he doesn't like talking in front of cameras, or at least around people he isn't familiar with.

Only thing I wouldn't consider a anxiety issue that he does is he makes a noise sometimes between saying stuff, which can be a nervous coping mechanism. If you go back and look at Kenyon Martin interviews when he was in Cincy, he did the same thing but A LOT WORSE.

He'll get better once he gets settled in here. I'm sure he still won't prefer to do interviews, but he'll do them a lot more naturally once he gets to know the local guys and his teammates.

Exactly. I don't think any of us really love public speaking--he just has a different way of dealing with it. And remember he's still just a teenager. I'm sure he will get better with this. You can tell in the training video in the other thread that when he's comfortable the interviews flow much easier.

Right, and I have nothing against the kid at all, he's a great player. Hopefully he will become a cornerstone for the franchise. Goodness knows we need one.

You should give him more than a bit of a break. The man has a speech problem. I don't care if the man was a damn mute as long as he plays for us like he played in college.


He's no longer on an All-Star team.
