Lots of reference to defense being the problem for CJ which I’m sure is true. Scotty was a much better offensive player than CJ. Scotty was very good off the dribble. Ball handling is not where it needs to be for CJ. That was a plus for Scotty.
Savvy. That’s a word that comes to mind with Scotty. Just knew where to be. How to play the game.
CJ is far more athletic than Scotty. He’s a good shooter…but doesn’t seem to be a GREAT shooter, like Scotty. Most of all, he clearly lacks the savvy, the game smarts of Scotty. If he had those, he’d certainly play lots.
Scotty never seemed to just not know what to do. Ever. It was the opposite in fact. CJ indeed seems lost at times.
All that said, when the game slows down enough to play CJ more, we will benefit greatly.
