Hoopsworld on AA

Anyone notice the article on Hoopsworld.com about Aaron Afflalo?

At 6-5 and 215 lbs. he may be a bit undersized to be a powerful shooting guard and with his weakness on the defensive side of the ball he may not have enough to make up for that.

Uhmm... a second columnist goes on to say:

Afflalo brings it like Phoenix's Raja Bell. he has nice physical strength, yet can flow without the ball, opening himself up for opportunities on the right team. One of the best shooters in the college game, Afflalo can also make his mark with his great peripheral on the court, finding teammates that, as a rookie, he will likely be forced to defer to every bit as much as carry their duffels.

His maturity and unselfishness will help him in the long run with teams like New York, Detroit and San Antonio. Afflalo's game is right up the alley for coaches like Houston's Rick Adelman, who hold the 26th pick, currently.

Of course, that's on offense.

On defense, he has a long way to go to match Bell's transformation from minor league baller to All-NBA First team defensive player.

Are we talking about the same player?  If anything, AA had a tendency to get quiet on offense, while still being able to maintain a fierce defense (before exploding in the second half with 16 points).  I think the only time these guys ever watched AA was during final fours...
