do you guys consider Love or Lee athletic beast? Cause I dont, I mean not at the lvl of a Griffin or a Smith but they seems to get the job done jumping like 2 inches of the ground
and Timmy D is probably the least athletic of these guys and oldest of the bunch and he'd still school all of them on the block and I'd say his defensive impact is better then all these other athletic 4's out there.
They're athletic enough to offset the difference, Pau isn't. Pau is all skill and no athleticism at this point.
He's worse than World Peace by far and World Peace is one of the most unathletic 3s in the league.
If Gasol was able to knock down 3s like Love that'd be one thing. If Gasol was as nimble as Lee that'd be another thing. Gasol isn't able to do either of those things. He's got a very good post game when he has a lot of space and.... that's about it. He's not athletic enough to challenge many shots. He's not strong enough to battle for many rebounds. He's not quick enough to defend anyone laterally.
