Agreed. Also expected when comparing a one year of college 20 year old g-leaguer to a 4 year kansas big12 player of the year nba sophmore.Im continually shocked by how much people try to simply impact and a player being good/bad. Brings me back to HH during the draft where he was convinced Hendricks could be a positive impact rookie simply because he shot the ball well in college and averaged mediocre block numbers at UCF.
Yeah, Ochai was not good here, but he was typically in the right spots and making the right plays and playing solid to good defense.
Hendricks is probably going to make more plays per minute than Ochai, but he's going to be out of position, he's going to have crazy drives to the lane that result in hard bricks off the backboard, he's going to look lost, etc.
I do think you are correct though. Taylor will make more mistakes almost assuredly. There is context as to why that might be the case th0ugh.
