Wendell Carter is like what would happen if Vucevic decided to be a consistent, solid defender.

Yeah but I don't think its a considerable difference. He's got like typical center athleticism, not like bam adebayo or Dwight level athleticism.

Yea i care more about basketball skill set over athleticism.  Don’t get me wrong I love a great athlete because I think when it (if) it all comes together for them they can be elite—but I like the guy who has the skills, fundamentals, and IQ of already being a good basketball player. 

Also, it’s not like Carter is Jahil Okafor athletically. He’s still a good athlete just no freak like Bamba or Dwight or Jordan. He has quickness. He looked a tad slow playing next to Bagley but who wouldn’t? 

I really see a mix of Al Horford, Marc Gasol & Myles Turner (to a lesser extent) in Carters game. 

I know, for some reason, he’s not sexy. I guess because he doesn’t have the Bamba measurements or his crazy dunking and shot blocking ability but sometimes taking the more skilled player pays off. Tatum last year is a prime example. There were plenty of people on here who were meh on Tatum because they questioned his explosiveness and athleticism. 

I think people undervalue skill and overvalue athleticism. Carter is actually a good mix of both whereas Bamba, for example, is pure athleticism and physical attributes. 

Its funny cause Trae Young who everyone knows I’m not a fan of is pure Skill too but the people that love Young hate Carter for the most part.
