DeAndre Jordan is shooting 81% FG and 16% FT in the preseason.

Which is sadly a common thing in the league: players with freakish athleticism who don't develop basic fundamentals and skills, things that would really elevate their games.
Can you imagine how devastating players like Jordan or McGee would be if they developed a little jumper and improved their touch around the basket? Or what a nightmare for the rest of the NBA would be if someone like Howard (who actually has trained very hard throughout his career and improved a lot) became a consistent FT shooter?

I love watching basketball in the half court or in semi-transition. Those moments take skill. Being an athlete doesn't mean you're a good basketball player. Guys like Jordan and McGee, to me at least, are just not smart enough to be talented basketball players. But since they're getting rewarded with 40, 50, 60 million dollar contracts, it doesn't matter. They won't develop those skills because they don't need to.

Blake Griffin wouldn't even be top 10 on my PF list (Yes I'm serious), because once you take away the dunks and flops, he's pretty average to below average at everything else. Same with DJ, McGee, etc...
It's cool to see in the top 10, but in terms of wanting players like that on my team, pass...

This Russell Westbrook @NBAonESPN commercial is pretty fantastic. http://youtu.be/LLucZygQIgo
