Anyone else find the combination of these two players intriguing? Each player in the second unit has their deficiencies which prevent them from being starters, but when put on the floor together (coupled with someone who can spread the floor) seem to mesh perfectly.
Telfair - can't hit a jump shot to save his life, but is a magician with the ball in his hands.
DJ - is a lot more solid this year, but still lacks some in game experience and ability to consistently create in the post.
DJ is a finisher, you give that guy the ball when he has momentum near the post and he will throw it down. He's tenacious, no drop back flip shot, no dribble dribble to a soft layup, no fade away jumper...just will power to get to the rim and throw it down. While I hope he develops something beyond this, right now it's not so bad (I grow tired of seeing Mr. Flippy do his thing leading to a clank, when he could have just thrown it down!).
He also has the ability and coordination to detect jukes and catch passes (instead of Kaman who seems to get faked out himself leading to a bumble and a turnover).
This is perfect for someone like Telfair who can create openings and make some NICE passes to DJ.
I think it is going to be interesting.
I almost felt sorry for Baron because he can't do the same with Kaman. Kaman needs to catch the ball from a nice and simple pass...do a dribble or two...compose himself then go to work. Every trick pass that Baron throws to him gets bumbled and lost out of bounds. Then I remembered he had Griffin...
P.S. Does anyone know where I can get a swingman DeAndre Jordan jersey? This is the one I want the MOST.
