The offensive boards make sense....his lack of touches are down cause he's gotta haul in the misses that this team of chuckers is putting up. Dwight is saying all the right things right now (probably cause of the firestorm he faced with Dwightmare), but Worthy brought up his lack of touches last night...Dwight said that it will eventually come, but whatever is better for the team, he'll do. His Kwamitis is leading to TOs that are costing him touches...but I still think LA really isn't trying to set him up as much. That could eventually become a problem going forward. He's not a back to the basket type of player, but that's cause LA is not really looking for him inside. He's gotta develop that aspect of the game (plus it will lead to less TOs...its when he faces up that he's losing the ball) in order to be dominant like Dr. Shaq has alluded to.
Small sample size probably has a lot to do with it. He has like, one stinker in there bringing many of his averages down (though he does have some big games to pad them too). We have a lot of anomalies in our players' stats.
I do think the high PF despite lower mins and like you said, the lower defensive rebounds is a good indication he is not 100%. My guess is his FG% is high because he's getting a lot of his points from offensive rebounds that he's getting from our other players misses.
