what has JV done wrong so far?
the guy has shown the ability to stay on the court the majority of time compared to a lot of rookie bigs who tend to get into foul trouble fast
the guy is showing a decent mid range open jumper, has a soft touch inside and wants to tear down the rim any chance he gets
the only "complaints" i possibly have are his inability to grab the ball clearly on rebounds and instead bobbles it around a lot, but that's no different than the rest of the bigs on his team, and his D can improve, and he has a knack of trying to take the shot when he has the ball, but all these "complaints" aren't due to a lack of skill but due to being a rookie and not being used to the NBA, once he catches on completely to the level of play it'll all come together
