Hasheem Thabeet 09 vs. Cole Aldrich 10
The last couple years have been pretty weak for center prospects
How do you guys think the top center prospect from 09 (Thabeet) will compare to the top center prospect of 10 (Aldrich)?
They are both major shot blockers but aside from that their games and athleticism are quite different, although neither one is considered a "sure thing" which one do you guys think will have a better career?
I think Aldrich too, he's not the quickest but has a nice basic skill set including jump hook and is a 75ish% free throw shooter and has a knack for grabbing rebounds. Thabeet will block some shots cause some problems defensively, but i think thats about it
Aldrich has alot more post moves and a overall better Center,
Thabeet is a way better shot blocker, But if your Defending
someone back to the Basket Cole will hole him off better then Thabeet.
Also Cole A is a lot move athletic and finishes with power dunks......
nice at throwin down ally ooopsz.
My Take: Cole Aldrich
One has to think that Kahn will go after the local kid next year no matter the cost.
thabeet seriously because he can be a future all-star
Can also be a future all-star. I'd pick Aldrich, who is very well-rounded offensivly and a better rebounder than Thabeet.
Thabeet is a better shot-blocker but Aldrich can swat a lot of shots too.
Aldrich is more of a sure thing. He is long and athletic with decent post moves, passing vision and a decent basketball i.q. He is more likely to reach his potential than thabeet.
Thabeet is considered a true center.
Aldrich is like every teams center 6-9-6-11.
Thabeet weak offensively.
Aldrich above average offesively.
I will take Aldrich as a beter player.
I will take Thabeet as a true center.
Aldrich will be a great center because the nba centers are evolving into faster smaller types.
Better, more well-rounded player.
