Sixers: The Matisse Thybulle Conundrum

Fansided

on

Article Summary:

Thybulle is an anomaly because he has always known that his special gift is defense, so he has always been the flip side of most players at every level. Thybulle plays off the ball and rarely needs it, so it is possible to “Hide” him for long stretches because the offense can flow through the other four guys and you almost forget that he is there. If there is reason to believe that he can do that 2-3 times per game and take 5-6 threes per game, open or contested, then he has the possibility to become a truly special player. The kind of 3-and-D specialist who is consistently discussed as a defensive player of the year, plays 35 minutes a game, and is the most dangerous player on the floor in crunch time because he can be a playmaker on both ends.
