Bold one: its about talent. The stats, in my opinion, show a great deal of talent that has yet to be touched given his language barrier, new country/continent, new style of play, age, and inexperience at the NBA level. If you disagree, so be it.
bold two: you have brought in a concept that, in my opinion, does not relate to the issue or topic at hand. Passing to an open teammate is a given. Developing the offensive skills of a player can be done while also developing the defensive end. No one has said defense is not a priority.
