An athletic 6'9" can beat a 7'1" player all day long. Problem is we do not have an athletic player in the 5 spot. No offense to Jacobsen. He is a good Sun Devil but is not very athletic / physical. His lack of athleticism leads to several stupid reaching fouls and he is not physical enough to overcome his lack of size.
A good physical 6'9" player can box out and be an animal on the boards. I will take an athletic / physical 6'9" player all day long and twice on Sundays. We need athleticism.
Maker is one of those special players that has both size and freakish athleticism. We need him in the post next year!!
