Donatas Motiejunas should study ...

Lee entered college as a can't-miss lottery pick, but left as the 30th overall pick. Among other issues, he just did not seem to be an interested rebounder until late in his last season. That idea seems laughable now, as Lee is a consistent defensive rebounding force for the league's second-best defensive rebounding team. Lee made the change first with his attitude, simply valuing that part of his game, and then as he got stronger it became even easier for him.
