Talks about their relationship. Also in the article is his father's critque of his game. He seems to put an emphasis on posting up, finishing at the rim, and getting to the line more. Great advice if you ask me.

I will say that's Klay's biggest flaw for now. His inability to get to the line.

And his inability to finish at the basket.

I believe that's just confirmation bias. He finishes fine at the rim. The problem he has at the rim is getting or drawing contact + free throws.

That's his heat map.

That's a good fg% inside the paint. All things considered though, it could be even higher. My critique of his ability to finish at the rim stems from seeing him miss easy lay ups. Probably more so because he misses them at some critical points of the game.

Shiet, man. Fukken hell. He needs to drastically improve his FG% from 10ft-3pt line. He's suppose to be a shooter for christ sake! I already had the impression that he didn't convert as much as he should, but ~40% from midrange and 3pt is pretty mediocre considering it's suppose to be his specialty.
