I don't want him to be a face up guy. KG and Bosh are face up guys. I want him to be a back to the basket big man. Those are rare and needed in Championship level teams. I think the worst scenario is him moving outside. I want to see him stay inside.
I'd obviously like for him to try to be like Tim Duncan, greatest PF of our time and probably of all time for that matter. His championships, drive, and skills just don't lie!
Keep Calm & Chive On
And that's not to say Bosh was shy of contact, because he wasn't, but him and Bargnani weren't exactly a great fit. They played the game relatively similar on offense.
I've always considered a Jermaine O'Neal in his prime, the best comparison for Ed. They have very similar body types, both are good to great rebounders and shot blockers. And Jermaine developed a mid range shot that he could hit with consiscently from various spots. We need Ed to be a defensive force before he becomes an offensive threat.
Like Amir Davis has a shot from the mid-hash mark where he's money. I'd rather prefer that Ed works on his post-up game, free throws and hit the weight room.
If he gets some of Garnett's or Perks fire that's just gravy.
He should aim for a 10-10-2 statline for the first 5 years of his career. Eventually he could be a 17-7-1, but that's not what this team needs.
I agree with whoever said Garnett. A quality defensive anchor who can score. Yes please.
I like him as a KG type guy, but obviously if he was a physical and dominant guy in the post I'd like that too.
