Actually he's attacking the basket a lot. He takes it to the hole all the time and he's really been one of our best offensive weapons at times because teams totally forget about him. They try to put Ginobilis or Tony Allens on him and he muscles his way to the basket all the time.
He just doesn't play with the same fire he used to, but then again neither does anybody else on the team. Kobe included. Nash included. Gasol and Howard and Jamison included. Clark is the only one trying his heart out.
I agree that his offense has looked comparatively great at times. Especially when the team is looking confused/timid and he muscles up to the hoop.
Also, I think his defense is taking too much heat this year. Sure he cant guard the ultra quick perimeter guys the way he used to. He's still guarding 2-3 positions, getting steals, playing hard, and generally pissing off ever player on the opposite team?
People want to try to slam him because Lebron or KD had a good game against him??
