He has shown an ability to drive to the basket sometimes. So, it's like the scouting reports were of a completely different guy.He's got 14 blocks in 98 career games (regular season), and has a career average of .4 blocks per 36 minutes. Before game 1, he had 1 block in about 83 playoff minutes. That's not terrible for a 6'5 shooting guard, but if it's his greatest strength he'll never play another meaningful minute again on a healthy team, and he won't get a second NBA contract.
He plays like he's forever filled with the energy and IQ of a guy who just got drafted last week. He overplays everything on defense (which can lead to some blocks if the other team is unprepared, tons of dumb fouls and a total inability to consistently stay in front of his man) and despite good form, never finds the range on offense. Tremendously disappointing that this is where he is at the end of year 2.
