And if I'm the coach of the opposing team, I'd tell my guys to start fouling like crazy against that lineup. Hack-a-warrior... :wink:

I disagree. Don't let the stats fool you; Ike is a damn good man-to-man defender. The problem is, he didn't know the playbook last year, so he got beat on help defense. But Ike is a shot-blocker... and he'll show it in time.

The other problem was that he didn't get the PT. I know Ike hustles on both ends of the floor, but I'm not comfortable calling him a shot blocker yet, we'll see in time...

Don't get me wrong; he'll never be Alonzo Mourning. But I can see him as a Joe Smith kind of defender; just good enough to keep the defense on their toes. Not a league leader; just a level below them.

1.0-1.5 BPG, I envision him getting.
