Please don't tell me you're trusting BPM as the arbiter of defense between these two guys with limited playing time early in their careers.Bolmaro’s defense BPM was -0.7 last season. Forrest by comparison is +1.2.
bolmaro is jack of all trades expert at none type of guy. OK at a lot of things but not really good at anything.
He could become the MVP of European league or Chinese league one day. But at the NBA he simply has zero skill that would translate
(By the way, I was pro-Forrest, so I'm not trying to knock him. I'd have been happy for the Jazz to keep him, but given the circumstances, it was just not to be.)
I don't really know where the jack-of-all-trades kind of assessment for Bolmaro is coming from. I have him pegged very differently: very aggressive defender with lots of perimeter defensive potential (may need a bit of refinement, but he's only 22 with limited NBA experience); great potential guarding anyone from 1s - standard-sized wings. OK at playmaking (though I think his pre-draft reputation was higher here than I think he's shown yet). Severely lacking in scoring ability at the NBA level at this point (so becoming a non-NBA league MVP seems like a real stretch, since scoring often factors heavily into that award).
