We were asking the same thing at the beginning of the year. Unfortunately I'm just kind of expecting him to come back down to earth but will have another stretch like this by the end of the year.
I hope I'm wrong and he keeps this up
He definitely needs to play more consistently, but the guy was born in 1990. He's still very young. He's starting to show more maturity in his effort and ability to respond positively to his own mistakes, which was a very big problem early this year and more so in his career.
Right now, he's looking like he would have been worth the option year at $3.4M, but hindsight is 20-20. Maybe declining the option was the kick in the arse that he needed. I hope we're able to bring him back at an affordable salary. He really does fill a nice role here. His rebounding compensates for Anderson and Lopez, while his defense is becoming formidable. Hell, he even drained a 3 yesterday.
To Lester Earl, you clownin'. Aminu has contributed way more this season than Ju Ju did in his entire career.
