Agree. Maybe give him more of Beidrins' minutes and that'll prompt AB to go all-out while he's in the game; if he fouls out, so what?!?! At least he's not pussyfooting around trying to avoid foul trouble!

Nice article on Udoh, and I like his plans for this offseason. If he can add some muscle, he could be a legitimate starting C and one of the better low post defenders in the NBA.

It may seem odd but i really believe in this kid. The main reason is his mentality and work ethic. He can be a lot better player than Lee. It's a matter of time.

It's time to give some love to a big-time defender. Udoh, the 6-foot-10 center out of Baylor, is first among rookies in blocks (1.4 per game, 2.3 as a starter) and has at least one block in 10 straight games and at least two in nine of the last 10 games. He's also improved his scoring, averaging 10 points and 6.0 rebounds in the last five games. Udoh saw his role increase with an injury to Andris Biedrins, and the rookie has taken advantage. "I think he's finally starting to feel the rhythm and getting more comfortable in the offense," Biedrins said. "He's really making a lot of progress."

If he hadn't gotten injured before the season, imagine how much further along he'd be now. I hate to say I'm glad someone is hurt, bit it was a timely injury to Beidrins that has allowed him to blossom. I think the pick was well-used.
