You're kinda taking what I am saying and twisting it to get mad. He is a big man who will hopefully play defense, rebound, and convert layups because he's good at running the floor and getting behind a defense. He is also going to need some work. I am not saying he is going to be Kristaps Porzingis and I think you know it.

Can't teach tall and while the returns aren't always great, dude hustles like crazy — the clips of him running the floor and getting behind the defense/in a position to get layups is really encouraging. (In that regard and only in that regard he reminds me of some of the bigs that have come through North Carolina and excel at this.)

But yeah, he is raaaaaaaaaaw. Even if he just brings really good defense and rebounding and scores every once in a while, that's a plus. Put him with a good big man coach and who knows.
