The only "raw-talent" I have seen from him is his ability to get to the basket
The single most valuable asset in the NBA.
He couldn't shoot at Duke
The easiest flaw to fix in the NBA.
couldn't dribble left
Can be fixed, but not as easy as the shot. There's going left to the rim, going left for a pull up, step back going left, finishing with the left, etc. He doesn't have any of that. That's a lot of pieces to put together.
Second reason I hated the pick.
I still hate the pick. Even though there was not much left at 10. I liked Sullinger (undervalued), Zeller, and Kendall Marshall, who I thought had more upside at the point than Rivers and would be a nice pair to Davis. He hasn't panned out either b/c he can't shoot, so we'll see.
