I don't mind him shooting a certain number of shots at all, although not all that many from behind the arc unless he's open and hot. I don't question his level of aggression in the past as much as his experience level, and his need to improve his ball-handling. I could be wrong, but I thought that after John Lucas arrived, that Moon did improve his ball-handling a bit. If he can build on that, and be on the receiving end of a good number of lobs directed towards the rim, a la Chandler, then I'd be pretty happy.
