Overreacting to Tacko Fall updates

I don’t put any stock in drills where players just go through the motions, but it’s impossible not to feel good about this one. Tacko is so long and gangly that it’s hard to get a read on just how strong he is, and seeing him dismiss fellow rookie Vincent Poirier entirely is seems like real progress for Tacko, whose skillful summer league display didn’t show a lot of aggression at the rim. Of course, there’s no alternative option here other than to attack the basket, so I won’t assume he’ll look to body a defender like this in real game action until I see it.
