True about the early foul thing with the bigs but Ford was giving Franco the business about his poor D as well. He repeats the same mistake of not making the switch on the pick and roll. He hesitates to decide which player to cover the same way he hesitates to shoot from point blank range at the rim. He plays like he’s unsure of himself, which is another way of saying he lacks confidence. Rammer thinks the same thing as that’s why the subject of lacking confidence came up.
A 6’9 athlete in top physical condition lacking confidence on a basketball court does not make sense. Some 6’9 guys seem to not realize how many of us wish we were 6’9 as we’d be slamming everything in sight. Franco needs to stop thinking so much and just play the game.
