Larry sanders has 7 blocks against the New Orleans Hornets; this kid is having a monster breakout season but why is nobody really talking about him? Everyone is concerned with Jrue holiday who has been nice but still leads the league in turnovers
he has really surprised me this season....i didnt expect it at all. i liked him in college but didnt expect much out of him after his rookie season. he gets great positioning down low on defense...does a good job jumping straight up and hands straight up to block.
the bucks now need ilyasova to play the way he did last season and stop slacking off now that he got his contract!!!
It's funny. In summer league/pre-season, Sanders didn't even look like he belonged in the NBA. All of a sudden the season starts and it just all clicked. I couldn't be happier. I've been waiting for this ever since Milwaukee drafted him.
Well Jrue Holiday deserves the recognition. He finally gets primary ball-handling duties and has the Sixers winning games without pro bowler Andrew Bynum, regardless of leading the league in TO's.
Sanders is having a monster year. He produces at a huge rate, but he commits a lot of silly fouls, causing him to stay off the court. He is most certainly top 3 as far as shot blockers go this year.
I understand but Larry Sanders is averaging 12 points, 10 rebounds, and 3.5 blocks when he plays over 25 minutes. That insane production
He's also averaging 4 fouls in just 23 mpg, which is why he doesn't often get over 25 minutes. I'm sure he'll improve in this area though
With Sanders having a good year what do they do with Henson? He plays the same position with similar strengths and weaknesses and they have illiasova who they just locked up. Do they go for a center? another draft pick?
Sanders has been playing most of his minutes at center from what I've seen, while Henson has played at PF.
They have very similar skill sets though, although Henson is the much smarter of the two from what I've seen.
Will he change his mind about the bench? I don't undertand why he doesn't want to start.
