but he will almost certainly be a bust in comparison to the hype...A BIG BUST!
he will not dominate in the nba in any fashion...he is slow, has no stamina, and fouls the living **** out of people all the time! he got a WHOLE LOT of respect from the refs in college and they let a lot of **** go...that **** wont fly in the p.u.s.s.y ass nba nowadays...any contact and he is on the bench...and thats all he does is go up to block every shot...good luck keeping him on the floor...on offense, he was only scoring at will in college because there was absolutely nobody his size to defend him...he will get shut down by any decent nba center...
career wise? i dunno...maybe a 13-14ppg, 6-7 rebounds, and little else...maybe 1.5 blk? just another average center...someone a tad better than a jamaal magloire...hahahahaha
who knows, i could be completely wrong...but i think he is a scrubby mofo
OK, everyone is entitled to their opinion but SLOW? Where are you getting that from? He is extremely agile and fast for his size. I am amazed how quickly he can slide over on help D. And I take that back, he is NOT just fast for his size but is fast and agile for anyone really.
He was the 28th fastest athlete at the combine. Nobody over 6'7 ran as fast as him. He blew away our own Brandan Wright but yet I keep hearing how he can run the floor so well. He ran the same time as 5'11 Taurean Green.
Again, I dont know what he will be on the offensive side but with his skill set and a 9'4!!!!!! standing reach (THAT IS INSANE) he is going to be a dominant defender.
