True and he is rather athletic, but you can only be taught to a certain degree and I don't see that being a high ceiling for Fab. Also he tends to disappear from real interaction in games for stretches, that makes me question commitment.
It is simple as far as Fab goes in my opinion, is he willing to be coached. If he is then he has a very great opportunity being with Doc Rivers and if he does, I can see him being a lot more than he is now.

He would also benefit a lot by playing alongside Love since Love would be the one spacing the floor with Pau having his back to the basket. That's just a deadly combo, not only that, but he can also spread the floor which gives Rubio room to drive in. TWolves would be scary with Pau, right now they're not very scary. Peko is good and all, but he is more of a defensive guy and doesn't bring nearly everything that Pau does.
I much prefer Marc now, and I agree that Pau use to be a beast. To his credit his rebounding actually improved last year, but I still don't think we are going to see the Pau of old. I just don't think the fight is there anymore, but hell it could have just been the situation with the Lakers.
It is just my gut instinct.
