Players like Blake Griifin, D.Howard, Horford, Duncan, KG, Bosh, Boozer, Love,
Zack, Aldridge, will all attack Tyson Chandler early in the game looking to get
Tyson in foul trouble.
Having Amare switch to center to backup a Tyson in early foul trouble is all
good but....if Jorts keep looking to score from the 3-ball line when we need him
to screen for cutters/slashers/and to box-out for an offensive-rebound -vs-
decent teams we are back to where we started at the begining of the season.
Spot on Kiya, and you're right that was a sick ally to Shumpert lmao. But yeah even if he just offers a few fouls on a guy like Dwight it's a plus, you're not looking for Jordan to man up Dwight all night, but if he gives you 6 minutes, thats probably at least 1 or 2 less fouls on Chandler.
I disagree on not letting Jorts shoot the 3-ball. He is excellent at it. He's like Dirk. Amar'e on the other hand... smh

Jorts taking a big D.Howard/Noah/Horford out of the paint to shoot the 3-ball is different.
