| Pelicans Talk|| re: Ajinca and rebounding - LSUhornet17 on 3/2/15 at 9:30 am|
From what I've seen, he is good at securing the rebounds in his area because of his ridiculous length, but he seldom boxes out properly and gets beat underneath by quicker guys. My guess is that he knows he can outreach anyone so he doesn't bother boxing out. He can be an effective individual reboun...

Watch our guards (outside of Holiday) play defense on the perimeter and get back to us. Our shitty defense has nothing to do with Asik, and gets much worse when he is off the court....

[quote]Gogurt is no better than Ajinca.[/quote]
You should really do some research before spouting nonsense. Ajinca fouls almost twice (7 fouls per 36min!) as often as Gobert, is less efficient shooting the ball (while using more possessions), blocks half as many shots, and gets half as many stea...

This team is already bottom 10 in defense. Kanter is getting benched for his poor defense in Utah. They are around 5 points per 100 possessions worse on defense with him in the game. He even shoots a lower FG% than Asik and turns i...

People seemed pretty high on Wolters after last season. Waiving him for the corpse of Kenyon Martin was widely criticized and many people were surprised he cleared waivers. Kidd didn't give him much of a shot this season, with the emergence of Brandon Knight, but Wolters showed some things in a lot ...
