See, I completely disagree with this assesment of
Potapenko. I wish I could get someone on the coaching
staff to listen to me! I think the guy is a very
fundamentally sound player, with a good basketball
head on his shoulders. He's being asked to dom
something that is not in his nature -- VP on the
perimeter is misapplied force, like putting in a screw
with a hammer. Anyone who thinks he is just a big
body is seriously underestimating his shooting and
passing skills, his footwork, and his understanding of
how to play basketball.
