Cedric is just a little frustrated I'm guessing.
A) Jodie Meeks doesn't play the same position as Evan Turner. Iguodala does, therein lies Turner's PT obstacle. Meeks is a shooter, that takes 2/3 of his shots behind the 3pt line. His game is not comparable to Turner's, who lacks that shooting skill but is superior in every other BB skill category to Meeks.
B) Cousins is not a center, although, it should be said, it is unknown what position he does play. He can't guard NBA 4s or 5s on defense. He's slow, he's weak and he's a dumb basketball player with no defensive intelligence. All he can do is foul people, which he does at a very impressive rate. A rate almost as high as his turnover rate. Yeah. Impressive player all right.
C) John Wall is an impressive player. Very impressive. It is not fair to lump Turner, or Cousins in the same sentence as Wall.
