Cause that’s long been Kofi’s plan.
Happy to be wrong, but I'm not expecting Kofi to show that kind of potential right away. His physicality will give him opportunities he wouldn't otherwise have, but there's a lot more to the game in this era. NBA Bigs have to have a lot of things Underwood demands. It's been said he's a good passer, and he definitely has good hands. But to be effective, he's going to have to get up and down the court, stay out of foul trouble, speed up the mental aspects of his game on both sides of the ball, etc. Last thing Underwood wants is turnovers from the big guy initiating from the pinch-post. I'll be surprised if he can show all that out of the gate. If he pushes himself on the conditioning side, he could be dominant. Completely different positions, but reminds me a bit of Deron carrying extra weight until he broke his jaw. Guys with heavy frames that get rid of the baby fat can really surge.
