David Lee has finally found his comfort zone in Golden State.
After joining the Warriors by signing a six-year $80 million deal, Lee averaged just 16.5 points and 9.8 rebounds per game, significant drops from his final year in New York.
Two years ago Lee was the talk of the Big Apple when he finished his final season with the New York Knicks earning a spot on the All-Star team as he lead the Knicks in points, field-goal percentage and total rebounds.
The following year he was sent to the Bay Area and was not able to produce the way the Warriors had hoped he would due to injuries.
This year, Lee is starting off very strong in an effort to get back the production he left New York.
The Golden State has seen a shift in Lee that is promising for the six-year veteran. Lee’s averages are up from last year and slowly creeping back to the numbers he put up during his breakout season in 2009-10.
Beware playing against him. He will be a terror to opposing players. If you own Lee, and are suffering from injuries, he could be a huge bargaining chip in getting back on track.
