He doesn't need to learn that, he needs to attack.... we've seen he can stroke it now... but he's got to spend a summer pounding the ball through the floor, with both hands..... all summer.... and working on his first step too.

It's obvious he feels more comfortable dribbling in the open court, but he needs to be competent with a man on him tight.
