I don't know if this has been noted but I have seen a huge swing in his defense over the last 4 games. He seems to rebounding, blocking and into everything with his long arms. I really believe that this is why Chol doesnt get any time.
He's just become an overall better player. His confidence in his shot is growing. He's better moving without the ball and his defense is getting good. He is finally playing like he knows he is 6-10.

Kind of crazy to think that one of our best 3pt shooters is 6-10. What a weapon. Not only is he nearly impossible to block, but it's pretty tough to really even affect his shot a whole lot unless the defender has NJ-like hops.
Totally agree with your point on defense also.

Yes, Jerrett has become a better all-around player. He's always had this potential, which is why so many NBA General Managers were inquiring about him during Arizona's summer workouts. At the Pac-12 Tournament, some of the media were talking and we couldn't help but wonder how much Jerrett's foot was bothering him in the first two months of the season and if that didn't take away some of his aggressiveness. Ever since his return, he's played with fire and passion. His outside shot is released with confidence and he's definitely getting his hands on a lot of loose balls and blocking his fair share of shots.
