What might seem crazy to some, but I think Amen is more NBA-ready than Sharpe was in his rookie year. Sharpe eventually showed us he can become a good defender, but his reputation was not caring about that end. Amen’s reputation is being known for his potential on that end. Amen’s playmaking is almost going to be remarkably faster than some think. I’m talking maybe 6apg even in his rookie year. Imo, Winslow’s shot is no better than Amen’s, but he’ll shoot them for some reason. Worse case scenario, Amen as a rookie is Winslow now. I defy anyone to actually make a case that Amen would be any worse than Winslow was for us. On the bright side, Amen is bigger, more athletic, and young so he can work those things out. With all the attention Dame gets, Amen’s ability to make plays immediately gets better if he is willing to play off the ball early and get easy baskets off cuts and rolls. Amen’s shooting should be treated like how we view Shae’s turnovers, we’re happy with any improvement and ultimately know it’ll get better if they work hard at it. Work ethic is not something that scares me about Amen, he’s a gym rat.
