here. Insider stuff. I know Hollinger is loathed by many but I enjoy his candid and humorous take on players.
Here's a few smatterings of insight:
On Pek: "...his road-grader-in-reverse method of posting up."
On K-Love: "Other than hops, his biggest weakness is a tendency to whine about calls rather than running back on defense."
On Ricky: "...the Wolves gave up 7.3 points per 100 possessions less with him on the court."
On B-Roy: "...Roy will have to dramatically alter his game. Working on his 3-point shot off the catch would be a good start, because he needs to boost his true shooting percentage to have much offensive value going forward."
On Lion: "...he actually assisted less often than Michael Beasley. I'd say his dreams of playing the wing are toast with ballhandling numbers like that, but he's lost weight in an apparent attempt to play more 3."
On Chase. "...Defensively, he's a quality player, too. He doesn't look like he's doing too much out there, partly because he never gambles and relies on this length"
on JJ: "Flopper par excellence"
on Lou: "I like Amundson a lot better as a fifth big than a fourth one..."
on Dante: "Cunningham has his uses, especially at the defensive end, where his mobility is a major plus in pick-and-roll defense and any kind of rotating or trapping scheme."
Agree with or rip Professor Hollinger in the comments.
