With Tyshawn Taylor atop the rookie board we shall leave no rock unturned. Our work is tireless so we cant get out and push. When channeled the alliterated initials of both players bare a sizzle of cosmic instrumentality. Thus I am guided to explore JJ's worth.
JJ has not lived up to the big game talent he displayed in college nor his draft status. He was the 11th pick in the draft and plays like a journeyman. JJ plays with a wavering passion. He seems to look at basketball in the abstract or the emotional. He is not an efficient player but plays to the level of his competition and situation.
JJ is a dreamer who plays the game looking for the big play. Playing on the losing Knicks has dulled his appreciation for the fundamentals if he ever had it. Judging by his symptoms of ADHD his potential maybe stunted by a disconnect from dream and the necessary efforts it takes to make it reality.
- Negotiate an incentive based contract with one incentive. He must participate in an annual training program that focuses heavily on setting picks, defense, and three point shooting.
- 5-10 hours a week of one on one time against Aldridge.
- Let him know that he is more valuable to us in the future when we are contending for a title. To contribute he would need to become more of a specialist. Three pointers and defense. Groom a big man version of Bruce Bowen.
- Hire a double agent to leak a rumor that the young bigs on the team dont respect him.Promise him a chance at glory when his three point shot falls like rain and his defensive intensity burns with fire.
I was born and raised in Los Angeles and I hate the Lakers.
