He may had the most NBA ready body in that draft, but not skills or natural talent. Imagine if Kyrie Irving isn't this injury prone!
I think he should have taken advantage of the games Love couldn't play and given his all. In the end he remained somewhat inconsistent, scoring 20 pts one game and 2 or 0 the next. We should notice, however, that when he did score he was able to score in bunches, averaging (with all his inconsistency) 9pts a game.
I dont think he is a bust at all. We are just expecting too much of a guy who plays more at practice than at games
He is not mentally there yet. Too much confidence, up and down.
If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.
There were times last year when it seemd to me that DWill was figuring things out. That game where he and Beas went off was an example. My recollection was that he did better with Beas on the court at the 3, and he always did better against the second teams.
My problem with DWill is not that he seems to lack good basketball instincts (he seems to dribble drive when he should shoot a mid-range, shoot a mid-range when he should drive, and shoot 3's whenever he wants) its that he doesn't seem to have the physical gifts I thought he had. Compare to to Blake Griffin, same basic basketball IQ, but Blake gets numbers because he is the better athlete on most nights. I thought D Will would be the better athlete too, but it seems like he's not that at all.
