Maybe being pushed around, bullied and having a basketball bounced repeatedly off of his noggin would have toughened him up a bit. I think your on to something that makes sense when you say how dissappointing he is considering all the advantages he has been given.
You can see he's learned the things you can teach in a clinic, but you don't see the things that you are taught in years of having your ass kicked in street ball at the corner park. No fouls, lot's of pushing and shoving and talking about your mama, which always fires you up.
Great analysis on your part!
Nice job of putting words in my mouth, but completely inaccurate. My point was that he hasn't learned the all the things you can teach in a clinic, like post up moves. It's inexcusable for a 6'9" SF not to be able to take a 6'6" or 6'5" defender into the paint and abuse them with post moves. Ike Diogu was at Pete Newell's big man camp last week, where was Dunleavy?
My argument was that he has had the best possible upbringing for basketball, so I don't how you derive that he would have been better with a tougher father or with more "street". Why don't you can the sarcasm and actually refute my points if you disagree?
