Pitt Panthers

With the loss of Tyrell Biggs, Sam Young, and Dejuan Blair how does the Pitt Panthers shape up this year for the incomming 2009-2010 ncca season? And who will lead them?

I hope OKC can get Aldrich

I hope OKC can get Aldrich if they can't get Montejas next year. He'd be a good fit

Raw

I'm a huge Jayhawks fan so a bit biased but that being said Cole is still very raw. He got thrown into the spotlight pretty fast last year. He's no where near a Gasol. He's a beast defensivly, changes more shots than he gets credit for. Offensivly limited. If I had to compare him to an NBA player right now I'd say he is a poor mans Dalembert. Did increase his free throw percentage last year and stepped away from the basket a bit. Would be a good fit in home town Minnissota.

Wow! Finally

I'm used to racial profiling in basketball, which is comparing white guys only to other white players, even if they retired 15 years ago [like Kurt Rambis] or black guys only to other black players, but I must say this thread is so refreshing. Except for one guy who did the usual and found a white guy, Gasol, almost everybody else compared Aldrich with black guys. I may not agree with every comparison but it's great to see you guys choosing players based upon style instead of race.

Thank You!

Dalembert?

Dalembert is a freak athlete who is raw and in the league because he is tall and can jump with a few post moves. Cole is a 70% plus free throw shooter with a variety of post moves. I know he blocks a lot of shots, but he is not primarily a defensive player. He is a fundamental big man who has been helped out tremendously by Kansas assistant Danny Manning. I think Robert Parish is a good comparison, Parish was very fundamental and not overly athletic, a good shot blocker with a good shot despite a strange release. I know he's been retired for a long time, but as a Jayhawks fan who has seen Adrich play 25 plus times per year for the past two years, that is the best comparison i can think of, a more recent player could be a Jamal Maggliore, but i think Aldrich will be a better pro
