Honestly, I had expected JC to be a post player too, Van. But one of the things I think I’ve learned this season is that he is not. I don’t think I’ve seen him play with his back to the basket at all; a few times, at best.
I’ve come to the conclusion that he’s a 3, in reality. We all look at his size and length and expect something else, but I’m making the adjustment. While he runs hot and cold, he is a pretty decent 3-point shooter. If he improves his drives to the basket, we’ll get what we need from him, I think. But this also means we need to stop thinking of him as a post player. I know you didn’t say “post” in your comment, but I’m reading that into it.
We need at least one more guy who can play with his back to the basket, at least as a backup. I’m hoping that can turn out to be CB – but we’ll see…
