Just want to provide a follow up to the criticism of Amir not being able to stay on the court due to foul trouble. This year, AJ has 13 games with over 30 minutes played and only 4 games with less than 15 minutes. He has 27 double digit scoring performances with 8 double doubles. 13 multi block games and 24 games with at least one steal. For comparison: Rodney Stuckey has 13 games with over 35 minutes played and 4 games with less than 15 minutes. He has 3 double doubles. And our bigs? Player: >30 min played/ dubdubs CV: 8/ 4 GM: 12/ 5 CW: 2/ 1 JM: 2/ 0 BW: 4/ 1 In fact, no Pistons big man (including Villanueva) has logged as many minutes as Amir this year. Amir is only 23 total minutes behind Stuckey, which would put him in a tie for 3rd on the Pistons this year. No Piston big man has as many double doubles. And here's the gross comparison between Monroe and Amir: Playa: Pts/ Reb/ Ast/ Stl/ Blk/ FG% GMon: 315/ 289/ 38/ 47/ 19/ .512 AmirJ: 489/ 316/ 55/ 35/ 51/ .586 Monroe is having a very nice year, but Amir is having an even better one. He's 3rd in FG% in the league. He's even out-assisting Monroe. We have a very bad collection of bigs when Amir Johnson is dwarfing them all in almost every statistical category. It took me a little while to form an opinion on Monroe, but I'm definitely liking what I'm seeing for a rookie. He and Jerebko should provide some value to us for the next few years, but we also need a real big man who is athletic and has offensive skills. Boozer, Randolph, etc. We can't keep up this guard buffoonery.
