Can't blame him should be making more and could probably start on some teams.

Do you think plumlee with the right coaching could develop into a David Lee type?

I remember when Lee came into the league he was also simply a dunker and rebounder. However over time he developed a nice jumper and moves down low, but Lee wasn't as raw to start, but not as good an athlete as plumlee.
