Absolutely, I said that coming out of Texas that all he could do offensively is dunk and do that baby hook. The rest of his arsenal was just garbage baskets. Now since coming into the NBA he's developed a nice mid-range jumper (ala Chris Bosh) and some moves in the post. Defensively, maybe I haven't watched enough Portland games this season, but I don't think his defense is any worse than Bosh's is.
