I’m trying to figure out why Nikola Vucevic isn’t an upgrade for Dwight Howard. Nikola’s post moves, despite not being honed by Hakeem Olajuwon, are way smoother and more adaptable. His jumper is infinity times better, with his range extending out to maybe the three point line. Free throws? He can hit them at a decent rate. He can rebound with the best of them. Dwight who?
Oh yeah, I forget about defense. A great defensive center is much more valuable than a great offensive center. Vucevic has a refined scoring game, but his nonexistent defense would hurt his playing time if the team he was playing for wasn’t tanking.
Still, these highlights are pretty sweet. Check out all those J’s!
