Has there ever been another center in the NBA for whom there was this much discrepancy between the positive they provide offensively and their negatives on defense? I can’t think of any.

Why isn't Ham devising ways for TB to shoot more 3's?
(He shot 2/game in Washington, this year he's 1.3)

When AD comes back, hope Ham would finally play them together and he can stretch more

He’s like the better ‘old’ Marc Gasol, TB game is similar to Ayton to me, less defense but way way higher motor, keep some cap for this dude

i wish he can learn to be the defender Marc Gasol was. even at old age, he was an excellent position defender. he handled Embiid and Jokic pretty well.

Rui trade also helps TB because with LBJ and Rui at 3/4, we actually have good size and athleticism

Per @NBA_University, Thomas Bryant allows 69.7% shooting at the rim when the closest player is within 6ft feet per 5 shot attempts, practically making him the worst interior defender in the league.

And the film supports it.

As the tweet says, "the film supports it." Teams hunt TB. They are ecstatic when he's in the game and go after him at the rim.

The Lakers needed TB's offense when AD was out. But now that the Lakers have AD and his offensive production back, I think it would be best to decrease TB's minutes and end this nonsense with Wenyen's DNP-CDs.

Wenyen will provide the team the energy/hustle/rebounding and defense that the team so desperately needs. And unfortunately TB isn't able to provide.

He's not a good defender but his scoring and hustle is always on point!
Good game from TB in 11 minutes.

4-4 FG (1-1 3FG), 6 Rbs, 1 Blk, +4, 11 Points!!
