Developing a good post offence (even as a 3rd option) is something that requires commitment. And not just from JV.
It requires that the offence be set up to pass in to the post. JV posted up on the weak side, probably best by either Lowry, Ross or even Patterson. So that there is a viable 3 point threat if the passer's check doubles JV. If JV is on the strong side, the 3rd player needs to move to the other side to remove the easy double. DD would have to be willing to rotate to the strong side to isolate JV.
Now sure, if we work on this, is it going to take some practice for JV to read the double and pass out of it? Absolutely. Will there be hiccups, frustration and faces in palms? Yes.
But shouldn't we work on that now rather than hope JV can somehow come out of nowhere again in the playoffs and that somehow our guards and wings will know how to pass in to the post and move, even thought it's something they haven't run all year.
And it's something we should want to do. Develop a bonafide 3rd option and create ball movement. The more JV is a threat inside and commands the double, the more KL, DD, PP and TR are open.
Said it tons of times before, its a cliche but it's true. Bigs take time. Particularly bigs that can't just rely on freak athletic ability early on.
Learning how to read defences and pass out of the double to feed the open man is one of the most difficult skills for a big man. I'd at least like to see a raptors team determined to practice it before I'm willing to throw my hands up and say JV is bad at passing from the post. I've seen him do it. But I very rarely see A determination to post JV up and run an offence with that as the goals. And as a post man, if you only see a few passes a game, good chance you're going up with it. Pretty sure that applies to any other top 6-7 guy in the rotation with limited touches.
