yes, and he never won anything kind of like the opposite of those guys

I see Amir as more of a better (as in more upside) version of david west. His jumper is nowhere near as reliable as west's, but considering he got better every year and he's still so young, I think it will get there.

the problem with amir is he's not nearly as good when he's not featured in a p&r offense, he tends to fade away, it happened last year and this year again. And defensively he's also up and down.

My only concern is we won't be able to keep him after his next contract, he is very valued by the analytical crop of new GMs, which is why I think we should really consider trading him this season, or at least explore the scenario.
