I love Boogie but he has a point. He's talented enough to get buckets on offense but a team based around a high usage volume scoring big that isn't extremely efficient is normally not very good. Being able to create your own offense as a big is a luxury but for the team to perform at a high level great and easy buckets should be created for them. Boogie has avg nearly 4 TOs a game in his entire career. That's pretty poor as a C. Dwight in wasn't far behind him but in his highest TO years he played much more minutes than Boogie did. One season Boogie avg 30mpg and avg like 3.9 TOs lol.
I haven't seen enough good from Luke and his staff to suggest that Boogie could be harnessed correctly here. Only with Lebron would I trust it. Maybe Paul George but that would mean Lonzo would have to have a huge leap as a player.
We haven't even touched on his deficiencies on the defensive side of the ball.
Thank you...you said everything I was trying to say...but better.
It disturbing that I can't disagree with a player's fit anymore without someone saying I have a personal grudge against him.
Cousins can be a bad fit no matter what I think of him. People should just look at the merits of the point and stop attacking the poster to discern his "motives". You can't have meaningful discussion like that.
Alvin Gentry is running a similar offense with more established role players and BETTER STARS right now in Cousins/AD...if he can't Cousins and AD to fit this system, there is a very good chance Luke won't be able to get Cousins (as the best player and only star) to fit with a bunch of "kids".
