i think people confuse his lack of basketball iq with lack of effort.

not to say hes the hardest worker out there, b/c hes def not... but i think he tries and puts a decent effort in. he just gets lost out there really easily especially on defensive end, doesn't know where to be on defense and often ppl drive by him and/or overpower him easily because of it. he always looks like hes trying to find his man or figure out where to be. by the time he finds out, its too late, shit turns sour and the team is running down the court satisfied with their easy bucket. his body works faster than his brain

As a result, hes also never in the right spot to gather rebounds...hes got to get over that rookie like timidness, i just dont understand why hes got to be so awkward out there...should be comfortable playing in the nba by now...only if his defense were half as good as his offense
