this whole toughening up thing is actually causing more damage than good.
andrea is losing confidence more and more... he just doesnt know where he belongs.
give him the oppurtunity to play his style, let him pull up for jumpers, give him the open lane for his move to the basket... it you force him to stay in the paint, he wont get anything done right and he'll look terrible... and thats exactly whats happening know.
remember last year when he started playing amazing? its cuase he was playing his game type... stepping out, drawing the defender outside of the paint... then using his speed to blow by or shoot.
he had a few bad shooting nights to start the season and it seems like the coaches got scared and forced him the stay in the paint ever since.... and its been downhill ever since.
