For those who thought DJ would never develop offensively these number are for u in 24 Min 8-8 FG 18 Pts 9 Reb 2 Blk. LOL, he can't hit a free throw to save his life but his post game is without a doubt leaps and bounds better than any of his other previous season. The Griffin & Jordan duo is looking pretty good after this unexpected development.
It's only preseason.... we have to wait bit before saying he is so good. In the mean time he is showing his usual problems in free throws and this a big problem for a bigmen (it was for Shaq... let alone for DJ)
Just because it's the pre-season doesn't mean you can't pay attention to a player's offensive footwork or his jumphook mechanics. Jordan has looked solid in those areas.
I still think he needs to get a lot better though. Teams aren't going to let him dunk. They're going to foul him. He's a liability if he can't make free-throws.
Defensively, he still needs to get better...
His footwork looks better and he has put in some reps with a jump hook, ppg probably won't go up because of all the newcomers taking away shots but efficiency should go up.
