its a bit like that huh....i said as much in the gameday thread, his game and situation (late draft pick) makes me think of Gil Arenas and Michael Redd
I'm not saying it's not possible for Gl0ck to become a very good player, but I feel like his situation is more like Boobie Gibson (I think some people mentioned this in the Gameday thread). He's a second round pick whose skill-set is already suited for the NBA perfectly. He's just a flat-out scorer/shooter and because of that, he's been able to make an immediate impact. I don't expect him to improve much more (just because I think that would be setting our expectations too high since after all, he is a second rounder whose only played like 10 games), but at the same time I don't expect him to regress. I think he can be a career 7-10 ppg off the bench.
Over exaggerating aside, I agree completely. He's still lacking the ball handling skills to play the point, but he's undersized for the 2. Not to mention his defense is still shaky. Not to say he can't improve and become a good play in this league, though. From what we've been getting from our bench so far this season, however, his recent play is exactly what we need and if he can keep it up, we won't need to look at Arenas; his current production will hold us over until Blake is able to come back.
