-he is finishing better under the basket and passing better under de basket
-he is hititng a better % at the ft line considering he is being fouled a lot
-relieves presure from TD in the O end and helps disrupting on D (he might not be a great defender; plays more like Oberto did for us)
-has great hands and can grab pretty much anything u throw at him
-cant bounce-pass well enough=TO
-can pass to the 3pt shooter pretty decently
Our big risks in the post season: they r gonna guard our pick n' roll and cause us a lot of turnovers. If he is able to adjust to that reality, I expect a 2007-Oberto type of impact. Couldn't ask for more.

Tiago is worlds better than Oberto ever was. Oberto knew his role in the system and perfected it but Tiago actually has a post-up game and plays better defense. I expect a world of difference come playoff time
I think he's going to be a star. And as time goes on, he'll be the face of the Spurs, I think.--- Coach Pop on Leonard
