After several games with a DNP-CD, Samuel Dalembert was rewarded for his patience a spot in the starting lineup. There’s a reason he doesn’t get to play very often. He has a decent offensive game, though he’s a little trigger happy with his jumper. The real problem is that his defensive awareness is the worst I’ve ever seen. Man-to-man he’s okay, but help defense is a totally foreign concept for him. He remains fixated on his man while a guard makes a layup without him noticing.
These highlights don’t show that stuff. You may leave this video with the mistaken impression that Dalembert is a good player. Do not be fooled. He is, at best, a zero-sum kind of guy.
