Really want to discuss this analysis of Sullinger. This is the first time I've heard someone really questioning his ability to shine at the NBA level.
THIS IS NOT A DRAFT THREAD, just a talking about college/pro transitions and performance translation.
Obviously 6'8" isn't ideal for a PF/C, but he wouldn't be breaking any new ground by being "undersized."
The author spends some time talking about whether Sullinger can score on NBA bigs with 4-5" on him - assuming that he'll always draw the best defending big on the other team. That analysis kinda glosses over the fact that whoever's paired with him in the post is going to likely have a size advantage in their favor.
You guys/girls get the point. I'm too tired to make a bunch of arguments right now, but this should get the ball rolling, right?
