Not only that, but Komi also would take longer to get oriented with his body. Being 6'4, 240 lbs, or whatever he weighs, it would take him a while to find out what he can and can't do with that frame, also, when you're that big and that young, it's a little awkward. Pretty near everyone has said it before, but i'm going to repeat it. Defensemen, especially big ones take longer to develop, so quit ragging on them when they make a mistake, and let them learn the game!
