No shooting, no athleticism, no coaching. Bad recipe.

Seriously though, watching what Hami accomplishes out there with very little basketball skill and just raw athleticism and effort shows you how important that is in the NBA. Defensive plays, rebounds, drawing fouls, scoring in the paint, and more, all just because he's faster and can jump higher than most other players.

Unless you can find generational shooters like Curry to combine with a creative coach like Kerr who uses ball and people movement to get players good looks, it just seems wiser to go after athletes and grow their skills rather than the reverse. So many examples of this in NBA, with guys like Donovan Mitchell, Ja Morant, Giannis, etc.

I'm a huge fan of Bey, but if an Athlete like Giannis (or even Hami) decided to lock in on him defensively (the way defense is played in the playoffs), he's going to get shut down unless he's got an athletic creator next to him getting him open looks. The same cannot be said in reverse.

That's one of the main reasons I'm on the Jaden Ivey train for this draft.
