He is a joy to watch.

Playing for the Bobcats does that to you.

Unfortunately he probably is. He was great on those Suns teams (probably my favorite team in the NBA at the time) and he's great for the Spurs now. If I were a coach I'd absolutely love him as my first big off the bench, now or in his prime.

he has put on weight and gained touch. He was fantastic as point forward on Phx

When I play NBA live 08,I thought he was almost an all star. Sure I was overreacting.

He was a huge reason why the Suns went to the WCF in 05-06.
He was one of the primary reasons Charlotte made it's first playoff run years ago.

His biggest knock has always been being too passive. Other than that, he's a smart ball player. A better version of Luis Scola.

I'd say he is a little bit, but not too much. The systems they ran in phoenix and now in SA are very instrumental in his success

That's true to a degree, but he is also very skilled on his own. Can shoot the ball, has some of the better footwork in the post in the league, versatile defender, and of course is a great passer.

The fatness ruined his potential but playing for the Bobcats does that to you
