Kaman is looking like a stiff of late with home fans booing their displeasure.
He can be a nice complement for Griffin and Prince but is a liabililty on offense with a feeble low post game. Opponents will lay off him and Griffin daring them both to shoot outside from six to ten feet. The latter can at least manufacture some points with his athletic ability but that's not to say the former can't improve.
He doesn't need a low post game tho, he just needs to play defense and get out of Griffin's way and do put backs if needed
Makes sense somewhat...but when defenses are playing off him to help not necessarily double teaming Blake or his teammates, Jordan could help the cause by being able to at least make a shot on his own. It will only relieve some pressure off Blake. Putbacks are fine but it can only go so far. Great defensive teams that rotate well can negate that easily.
With Jordan's size and lenght? There is no excuse for him to make jump hooks or in close J's from time to time. He doesn't have to be a COMPLETE liablity out there causing his teammates playing 4 on 5 offensively on the floor. If opponents say "let's make DeAndre beat us" by letting him catch the ball, deny the others therefore force him to score and he can't, then what?
