I hope you’re right, but the young man appears a bit too small to guard a 4, and not quite quick enough to guard the 3. Kind of the classic tweener who dominates in preseason games against smaller opponents, but struggles against high major competition. In his case, he had a nice preseason last year, and was crushed by Crowl in a game we should have won.You are correct in my opinion. I was able to watch him practice recently...he is so quick twitch and is definitely learning. I would love to see him be a great defensive player this year as well.
Here’s hoping his hustle and work ethic overcomes some of the physical disparities he’s likely to face.
