Courtney Lee's time in Boston has been brief, but also disappointing. We were promised elite 3-point shooting, but he has shot a career-worst 24%. He was supposed to be a good, athletic finisher but he has shot a career-worst 52.9% at the rim. Some over the summer were even predicting that Lee would keep the starting job over Avery Bradley, but instead he lost it to Jason Terry before the schedule even hit double-digit games. But if you look past some of his offensive struggles, Lee has really shown an all-around game that has helped him be a nice role-player, even when his 3s are not falling.
Lee was praised for his defense when we first got him, and he has not disappointed. Showing off his defensive versatility, Lee has shown his ability to apply ball-pressure, be stout in the post, and close out well. Even when his footwork and rotations are not perfect, his boundless energy always gives headaches to the opposition.
And it is not just the eye-test, the stats back it up too...
