I do think strength is important. Kevin Durant is that kind of rare player who is 6'10" but can handle like a PG. he's got abilities that are so immense that he doesn't need added strength for a slight advantage.
But for the vast majority of players, they can gain an advantage, especially defensively and rebounding by gaining strength.
For Booker and Percy and the rest of our bigs, I think bench pressing can be helpful. I want them as strong as possible and hopefully they will play with that type of football player mentality in the paint.
