Danny Abdia's declining fitness continues to occupy the media in Washington.

The Israeli rookie who recorded quite a few sparks at the beginning of his first year in the best league in the world has struggled on both sides of the field in recent games, and despite his team's marked improvement, he is lagging behind with an average of 2.4 points per game in the last seven games.



In a joint podcast by journalist Matt Moderno and former actor Larry Hughes last night (Monday through Tuesday) dealt with Abdia's difficulties, and Moderno analyzed: "For this purpose at the expense of the existing staff. Sometimes you just have to let a player like Abdia play despite the mistakes, because he will be needed later if the team intends to compete for a place in the playoffs."

"His reactions are not fast enough and he is really, really late in closing an opponent who cuts to the basket."

Hughes said: "Abdia is the guy I kept an eye on. We saw that his IQ is really really high, he learns the chaps and says the right things, but in my opinion even if you are not an excellent defensive player - you need to know to stand on your own and show the ability "To compete within the group defense program. And if you're always the one pointing at you - that's a problem. Whether it's an offense problem, or you pass easily - it's a problem."



"That's why I kept an eye on Danny," Hughes continued.

"Because he's struggling on the defensive side. Part of that has to do with the fact that he's not athletic enough, but his reactions are not fast enough and he's really really late in closing an opponent who cuts to the basket, and that puts him in bad positions that lead him to commit offenses. "Her defense. Then we will have to continue to monitor Danny's ability to make a substitution and stay in front, as well as block shots without committing an offense."

"In some of the moves that are burned off for his duty he looks surprised."

Moderno added: "I wonder if the different style of play in the league he played last season is what makes it difficult for him, because in some moves that burn offenses to his duty he looks surprised, then during the next he gives the opponent more space to avoid an offense, then passes without a problem. He talked before the season about how much he didn't see much of the NBA before he came to the league and that's why he was not afraid of anyone. "



"He had a quote after he kept LeBron," Moderno continued.

"In which he said 'I stuck to the scouting report and I'm not afraid of anyone,' which is cute and all, but maybe he's inferior because he has not seen enough NBA, and he does not know what Paul is and what Paul is not, or how to keep certain players. "You can read all the scouting reports you want, but until you find yourself deceiving a player or any other movement, it's much harder."



Hughes concluded: "A lot of times he pushes his body under a player who throws to the basket. I don't know which league he played in before, but it's always an offense, and it's pretty simple in my opinion. In the NBA you have to give up hundreds of shots against you, and at some point everything "What you have left to do is maintain your standing, try to interfere as much as possible with the shot without committing an offense and prevent the thrower from getting a rebound. When you start committing such offenses, it means you are late because your reaction time is not what it should be."

Abdia's last seven games:

  • 3 points in 21 minutes against Denver

  • 2 points in 11 minutes against Portland

  • 8 points in 23 minutes against the Lakers

  • 0 points in 12 minutes against the Clippers

  • 2 points in 20 minutes against Denver

  • 2 points in 21 minutes against Minnesota

  • 0 points in 7 minutes against Boston
