Jeff Adrien, Charlotte Bobcats

The undrafted, 6-foot-7 power forward is all hustle. His offensive game is unrefined, but he’s the type to capitalize on a pick-and-roll gone wrong, squeeze through a put-back attempt off an offensive rebound or be in prime position when a teammate creates a turnover. He has that unteachable knack for being in the right place when the game turns chaotic, and often he’s the beneficiary of those fringe buckets found as a result of broken fast breaks or botched play action.

Part of the reason for that is Adrien’s rebounding focus, an orientation that largely gets him moving toward the rim as an offensive sequence develops. As a result of his board-seeking nature, Adrien is never really caught out of position. His limited game and lack of size can get him into trouble at times, but he’s generally found within a few hard dribbles of the rim and understands how to make an impact with his hustle without getting in the way of the play action. That in itself is an underrated skill; it can be difficult for a midseason addition to know where to be in breakdown situations (he’s played just 20 games with the Bobcats after starting the season in the D-League, but Adrien’s instincts have given him some instant chemistry to fuel his per-minute productivity.

    • Then what the fug is the point of serving if you're always constantly going to be punished I know it's not easy to forgive people but what's the point of punishing if there's never going to be a lesson learned if you're constantly punishing people they don't learn their lesson they just learn to be angry and resentful to those who don't forgive them are those who won't let them move on. I say this is a person who's been arrested that charge is not all that is to me. What's the point of even doing time if you're never ever going to be able to learn something and grow from it no matter how heinous the crime. Amen I get it some people are to never be trusted but what the fug I have a people here mad that's crazy.     Sent from my iPhone using CarolinaHuddle
