He rushed everything on offense last season, right down to the simplest catch and shoot. Why? No idea. But it seems entirely curable. And meanwhile he developed in other areas. I can never figure why he was so loved in year 1 with nothing much more than the jumpshots, so much so that fans at games still orgasmed for half of a season 2 of bricks whenever he was open for a 3; and then he gets no love for working on expanding his game, and not entirely without some success. I think Andrea is a perfect example of how focussing on one guy's play can never tell that much of a story. At the end of the day he has a good chance of being able to make other guys better. But that never happens in an instant, unless your Lebron or Shaq perhaps.
