I don't buy the "get gassed at times" opinion. I think this is just another way of saying "he doesn't look very athletic." He may look "gassed" at times, but Niang made way too many clutch shots at the end of games that I don't think he could have made if he was "gassed."
He was absolutely clutch, but you're fooling yourself if you don't think there were times in games where he was sucking wind getting back down the court. Being gassed doesn't mean it has to be at an end of half. With our fast offense, there can be stretches for a big that if they're running up and down the court nonstop for 8 minutes they can be exhausted.
