C.J Leslie has Big time game but needs motivation to become driven and not rely on his silky smooth skills and natural talent. Some kids are not self starters they are like cars that need a jump every so often! College coaching is not always the answer especially when you have always been a star and not getting paid for it! Some kids go thru life expecting because they are gifted but when your not drafted; well reality sits in! The acceptance of you being a star all your life and not being rewarded; (The ego stroke) well there goes that chip! He is not a cancer or headcase but now finding his way !
I Love a guy who meets the crossroads and not develop an detrimental attitude but realizes that talent alone don't cut it! Woody will work him hard ala J.R and trust me C.J got something to prove; he will! Growth is not just measured by size and performance and now he has the magic growth formula! This is the first summer of the rest of your life and C.J will become a viable starting SF in the NBA someday!
I am a Knick fan and I have followed C.J Leslie since High school all american tour; I scout many players but that's what I do! Knicks got lucky by bringing in a player no one wanted ala Copeland!
