Na man, I gave him his credit there. He's one of the most skilled big men, almost ever in terms of international bigmen all time and big men as a whole in the NBA now. It's what he can do NOW, which isn't much better if at all then Bargs and Calderon put together. Which is mostly because of his old man knees. Even Pau said recently he doesn't want to be in the low post that much because of his knees and lack of explosiveness.
