He rarely boxes out, he just puts a hand floating out there so he can feel for where the opposing players it. He's afraid to be aggressive. :mad:
I want Sam to handle Andrea like he does Jamario. If Jamario does something passive on defense or rebounding, he gets up into his face and yells at him to push or fight back. I don't see him do that with Andrea anymore. He used too, but its kind of like he giving up on Bargnani
Ya Ya..and I'll admit to not knowing the answer, but I know that parking him on the bench isnt it.
