But at this juncture in his career should we have to push him to be assertive, especially when considering circumstance? We can change subtle things in hopes of improving intangibles but offensively the likelihood of him becoming a consistent jump shooter is unlikely. He can mimic many of the things Kyle provided last year but he will never be a true rim protector like Kyle. Yes, he did block some shots last year but not in the sense that it makes guys think twice about going to the cup.
Defensively, you're right. He probably isn't going to be that rim protector. He is rather athletic and is able to get in and block shots from behind/side, but he isn't going to stand in the paint and go up and challenge people at the rim.
