Good post and yes I do remember that pass to Chris, I also remember it also surprised Chris which is probably why he couldn't make the dunk. It would have been a pretty dime.

I agree 100% with the analysis, and the prognosis could be dead on.
I think his rebounding is unfairly criticized, and in a few years he will pull at least 8, if not 9 a game. He will never be a behemoth like Howard, but he could at least equal nowitzki or amare in that area.

Yep. Nice job. I particularly enjoyed the lack of the cliched arguments about how he is better than Bosh or how he is going to be a Dirk clone. I've been waiting for him to make the leap that he showed could be there since that beautiful touch pass in year one. Hopefully, this year it happens more. The most important part though, is him finding that level of maturity whether or not it includes the skillset that could make him a "franchise player". With this team, the core has to be more important than a single guy. He has to show that he fits everything they are doing here more than he has to show what he can do here individually. Then, down the line who knows?
