Maybe K.C was right? ( About Courtney Lee).

I know a lot of people on this blog are clamoring for Mayo, Melo, Smith, and Jackson. But one of the better players we probably could get and want cost us a huge amount of assets is Courtney Lee. When K.C mentioned this I was pissed like everyone else, but then I began to investigate....

 

Here is a quote about Lee's SHOOTING from his draft profile from draftexpress.com.

 

One of the main reasons for Lee’s insertion into the starting line-up and his 25.3 minutes per game (13th amongst rookies) is because of his ability to shoot the ball, especially spotting up, which is essential in this offense. Lee is shooting 40.9% from behind the arc, which is 3rd amongst rookies and 34th overall in the NBA. He displays nice mechanics and does an excellent job of setting his feet. He doesn’t have the quickest release, but his preparation before he receives the ball and his lack of wasted motion on the catch enables him to get his shot off. He’s always on balance with his feet under him and he elevates forward, carrying his momentum and his shot to the basket.

The profile also goes on to talk about his SLASHING/ DRIVING

Lee’s strengths offensively are not limited to the perimeter, as he has proven that he can get to the basket and do something once he’s there. He’s quick off the bounce and incredibly smooth as he covers a lot of ground on very few dribbles. In game three against Boston, Lee took the ball from his own free throw line and layed it in on the other side of the court in two dribbles – an impressive feat. He has outstanding body control and is able to absorb contact, due in large part to the way he utilizes a two foot jump stop in the paint which enables him to stay on balance. He’s very effective when he gets all the way to the basket, and elevates extremely well once he’s there – showing that he’s a much better than advertised athlete.

And lastly the most important element in any Thibs system..... DEFENSE.

 

More often than not, the biggest adjustment for players entering the league is on the defensive end, due to the enhanced speed of the game. For Lee however, he’s had a fairly smooth transition on this side of the ball and has proven that he has a chance to become an elite defender in this league. Surely things are a bit easier with the NBA’s defensive player of the year patrolling the paint, but Lee’s attention to detail, effort, and athleticism have made him a pest to go up against.

It should also be noted that he is a "HIGH CHARACTER GUY", which we all know is very important to the Bulls organization.  

“If you askCourtney Leehow he can help an NBA franchise next season, his initial answer might surprise you.

‘Off the court I believe I have good character, I carry myself well and I don’t have any baggage.’
While most players are quick to point out their shooting prowess or ability to get the ball into the hands of a star player, Lee takes the more unconventional route by discussing his strength of character.

Now that I look at it, getting Courtney Lee might not be such a bad idea.
