He makes his impact on the game by playing excellent defense and doing everything else on the floor to ensure his team succeeds on either end.However, lately, he has been attacking downhill and thinking score. He shot 6-for-11 from the floor in and he was working well in the post against the smaller Mavs.This all a part of newfound offensive aggression in his game and it is something that he can use more moving forward. It would help add more to Philadelphia’s offense as a whole.“Just getting back to who I...

The no. 25 pick already looks like a steal, and his success is a good example of how valuable shooting has become in the modern NBA. The knock on him before the draft was that he was a 6-foot-3...
