I don't understand what people expected out of him.  When we drafted him, I don't remember anyone being excited for 15ppg+ or anyone that even had that notion.  Now all of a sudden people expect that?  He was NEVER drafted to be a scorer, the hope/ceiling was that he could get around 10ppg with putbacks and dunks.  He's not going to do a 15 foot fadeaway jumper.  He's not Chris Bosh.  He's a in your face defender that doesn't back down and plays hard.  He wouldn't even be out of normal college by now.   I promise you there would be a ton of teams offering him a contract right now, and I'm talking about contenders.  He's the type of guy you want on your team in the playoffs.

interesting numbers:

2011 --- 23.1 minutes played --- .464 FG% --- .483 FT% --- 5.8 rpg --- 1.8 bpg --- 0.0 3pt%

2012 --- 27.3 minutes played --- .451 FG% --- .521 FT% --- 7.3 rpg --- 1.8 bpg --- 0.0 3pt%

2013 --- 15.5 minutes played --- .645 FG% --- .528 FT% --- 5.3 rpg --- 1.3 bpg --- 0.0 3pt%

 

his minutes have been cut in half but his FG% jumped a ton, he has improved his FT every year and still a monster on the boards and still adjusting shots with half his minutes, AND TO TOP IT ALL OFF - his 3pt FG% has been consistent throughout his career!!!
