Lakers vs Kings Cousins vs Caracter

so far its a nice lil match up..caracter has 6 points 2 of which are from nice free throw extendend jumpers( he scored 2 before i turned the game on so im not sure if he hit a jumper or got a lay up or dunk on that one). he also had a hell of a block on cousins only has one rebound so far at the end of the quarter though

Cousins has points on a college three but has 5 rebounds and 2 ast. this kid is a very good passer

ebanks has 6 as well but id like to see him get more rebounds. hes going against a starting sf in caspi

Cousins isn't a very good defender. Never has been either.

thats good. either way

thats good. either way caracter is looking pretty good on offense and defense. hit a nice jumper over whiteside whos a pretty good defender and went at him hard for a foul. i like how caracter is doing this against big long tall guys. and playing great one on one defense against cousins who is a very very good offensive player

Big-time moves facing up or

Cousins making some big-time moves facing up or with his back to the basket. He plays alot like Rasheed Wallace, except he doesn't defend very good.

cousins hit a nice up and under on sims then a nice drive shot on caracter. he's a beast plain and simple... just two beast out there. ebanks scored again. ..greene looking nice out there which isnt suprising. loving strawberries defense although i doubt he makes the team, he should be getting a invite to vet camp though

yeah... i think his defense

yeah... i think his defense will get better just like all rookies though. i wish the lakers would get caracter the ball more though. he's 4-5..but i can understand that these guys are trying to impress and make a team so i cant get on them too hard

DeMarcus

He looks good facing up, but I doubt he will be showing crossovers in NBA games. He will probably play more down low in the post and grab rebounds in the NBA. He already is a better rebounder than Rasheed ever was. Cousins does look very impressive on offense, though, and his strength allows him to grab boards on each end of the floor.

If Cousins can get more of an

If Cousins can get more of an NBA ready body in terms of muscle and stamina he would be very scary to see in a year from now with the type of skill he has shown in just the past game and a half.

lol..yeah i dont expect too

lol..yeah i dont expect too man cross overs but i wouldnt be suprised to see it since he will be given alot of time. you see amare do lil crossovers sometimes. when youre good and get a lot of minutes you can do those things sometimes as long as he doesnt start turning it over when he does it

One problem besides conditioning

I don't like his low fg% in these games, but in the NBA, he will play within himself more. I just hope doesn't spend too much time on the perimeter.

i dont like how caracter sits

i dont like how caracter sits and watchs instead of crashing the boards hard. hes not being aggressive on offense and seems to take to many dribbles backing up his man. loving the one on one defense hes playing on cousins though. cousins is very aggressive on offense as far as looking for his shot. very very good passer and of course rebounder. stepping up his defense on caracter as well

Omri Casspi always looks very

Omri Casspi always looks very good in transition. Really good athlete and has great open floor speed.

I am the ONLY person that said Donald Sloan could play in the NBA on this site. And he got a 1 year deal the other day. Strong, pretty quick, and can create in the drive and dish.

i'll back you up on that iggy

"When is this guy going to get some love? He entered the draft and returned for his Senior season (definitely the right move) and he's having a breakout start this season. He has all the tools to be a decent NBA PG, but he has to continue to improve his playmaking skills, as he's 6'3 but plays off the ball for Texas A&M...Has anyone seen him play? What did you think?"-iggy9

cant say enough about cousins

cant say enough about cousins rebounding..hes a monster on the boards. had 19 points but took 20 shots too get it pretty good passer but tries to be too fancy sometimes but thats what summer leauge is for

caracter had a efficient offensive game with 14 points on 6-9 shooting. turned it over a bit much and didnt rebound like he should. very good on man to man defense but no so much as far as team defense awareness. blocked 4 shots which is impressive. had to change his shots a couple of times because of the length of cousins and whiteside but still managed to get 14 which is a good sign. pretty obvious that cousins is the better big man for now and the future
