If you’re looking for an example of a young player sacrificing some of his game for Ws, look no further than Tristan Thompson, one of the NBA’s most unforgiving board-snatchers; a fierce rebounder and defender, Tristan Thompson showed his worth throughout the entire 2015-16 postseason in Cleveland – TT gives Coach Lue the luxury of going small without giving up a whole lot on the glass and in the middle; offense isn’t Thompson’s forte, but he’s no slouch around the basket – has touch and can convert floaters and short jumpers with either hand (switched from southpaw to orthodox a few years ago); a terror on the offensive boards, TT is a one-man wrecking crew who secures countless second chance opportunities; rewarded with max money and locked up for the future, Thompson is Cleveland’s reigning (defending) undisputed X-Factor
