Deandre's post game
Does the guy look extremely confident and fluent on his post moves or what? he's not hesitating and his hook shot (though not consistently) has a soft touch...
The very first post moves he did to Duncan in the game looked good, but it didn't go in. Van Gundy complimented him on it. He must have worked hard during the off season, because everyone has been saying he is horrible on offense, when it isn't a dunk.
This is the first time in his career he's scored 20+ in back to back games. He's actually already tied his career high for most 20 point games in a season already (2).
Now it's Blake's turn. I'm tired of watching him do the same spin and pump fake 300 times move, it's not gonna work forever
He's getting better as a player, and he's benefitting from Chris Paul. Tyson Chandler got a lot of easy lobs when playing in NO. I don't think he's hit his peak. I think he'll be a 12/10/2.5 guy for full seasons in the future.
I've watched every Clipper game so far this season, (6 I think) and they've started every game with a quick post up to Deandre and a drop step right handed hook, he's made 5 out of 6 of them. Just a fun fact. Next Clipper game you watch make sure to take note of their first possession.
The Clippers have the two most exciting big men in basketball right now.
It's good to see the hard work paying off for Jordan, especially at the free-throw line. I've always been a supporter, so it's good to see him showing improvement. Now, he just needs to stay consistent.
Watching big men develop is exciting! How did this guy go so low in the draft? Does anyones remember in the draft thinking "ok he'll be picked now."
I remenber being stunned when he free fell in the draft. Bottom line up guys with his athleticism who are nearly 7 foot with a 7'6' wingspan will eventually make some sort of impact in the league.
But D.J. has never had anything resembling footwork, nor did he ever have a soft touch. I dunno where this is coming from because he's literally came into this season with both and refined. He's looking like a guy could be an option on offense outside of lob dunks and putbacks.
And his development is the same reason why teams are going to be kicking themselves for passing on Drummond who has a way better feel on offense at the same age and is physically superior.
