Please tell me someone knows something about this guy all I know is he averaged 0.7 points on the BakersField Jam in the D League. Cant find any Video or even a Picture on this guy and the Lakers picked him at number 56
why is every drafted these weird named no bodys from Europe! Draft a good ol american NCAA player and get someone who can actually play ball
He's Nigerian and hand picked by Masai Ujiri...so fitting he went to Denver. I kinda like Ujiri's eye for talent and trade advantages...will be fun to see how this raw talent pans out... Masai already gets an A from me for Faried and Hamilton/'DreMiller in this draft...so I'll give him a trade for a "pet pick"
Actually, he commited a single turnover in his entire D-League career, so he should have some pretty great handles. He also averaged more blocks than points. How many people are able to say that?
I think he averaged a triple single
1 point per game 1 assist per game 1 rebound per game
He's a well rounded player
I think they just wanted to hear somebody try to say his name on stage...
Thats good so he's consistent
+1 Just for spelling his name right..
Chukwudiebere sounds like a star wars character or something
I was happy with Goudelock but really, I sorta wanted Dallas Lauderdale and we literally just waste a pick on him.
maybe the GM's do it just to put stern through hell trying to pronounce those names
MARCH 19th is his birthday...same day as my birthday...the last day of Pisces.
This may be his facebook page. I don't think there are that many guys with the same name. And he's actually called Arthur and he likes Harry Potter.
I actually came across his name 2 months ago and have tried furiously to see film of him to no avail. I do know though that he goes by Chu Chu and I trust the Lakers know a lot about him because he played at Bakersfield who is their D-league affiliate and they sent Ebanks and Character during the season.
on one hand i do not pretend to know everything about guys who can be late second round picks so i trust the lakers. Plus with devin ebanks and derrick caracter still being last years second rounders along with 4 second rounders this year, odds are some of these dont even make the roster so im not triping about these unheard of cats.
Now.......who the hell is chukuwidebere maduabum and the why the heck did the lakers draft him??????????????????
He is being traded to the Nuggets.
Manute Bol averaged more blocks than points but I don't think that this guy is the next Manute.
Strange pick. Diebler, Hansbrough, and Matt Howard would have been better picks.
Diebler was already picked. He gave us something to laugh about at least
http://www.ridiculousupside.com/2011/6/24/2241064/chukwudiebere-maduabum-nba-draft-nuggets-lakers-scouting-report He's headed to Denver apparently . I'm guessing Majai Ujiri who's a great up an coming GM knows something that we don't .
Here is a pic of him.
look at the instant analysis on this site... everyone has their own profile pick but none from this chu chu dude...lmao
Chukwudiebere Maduabum (Chu Chu) pronounced: Chuck wood-eye very Mad You a Bum.... (I think) Gotta be the best name in the draft...by far
Apparently Uriji likes this guy...maybe he has a scout in Africa that discovered an unknown "natural"...like in that movie. He gets discovered, Scout goes there, they save the village, he goes to the NBA... About the same kinda time line for ChuChu...out of nowhere (Nigeria actually)...thrown in a couple of D league games and taken in draft by the Lakers...who obliged Masai's desire to have him a Mile High. I hope it has the same ending as the movie...
Looks like Denver FO is building a gritty, defensive minded team (finally)... I like the quality of the players they took in the first round and see them being very tough in the West if they keep Nene and stat Mozy at C. Scary bigs depth with players that can play multiple positions.
Go ChuChu and GO NUGGETS!!!
I called this last week and you guys all thought i was joking
and i had Adam Hanga on my mock and in my secon rounder thread
The Mc knows his &$#%#&@! people
Denver gets a STEAL with the 56th pick!
Even if he's nothing, how many 56th picks ever make it? Masa saw something he liked, so it's worth a flier. The ESPN guys killing this pick because they don't know the guy was comical.
Chuck was #80 on Ford's board, I was going to post something a couple days ago to see if any one had heard of him, but I figured he wouldnt get picked
why do people have problem with NAME, RACE, COLOUR. just because the guys name is not sound like Lebron James or James Brown so is not fit in why are you guys going to hide your face if he make it to the top hyporite stop criticisim may God rescue you all
This has little to do with race colino, its that he averged 0.7ppg for Bakersfield last year. And because he has a cool name too.
I personally think he has an awesome name.
watch the ashton kutcher and the lakers organization be like
"all you laker fans just got punked!!"
