As you all know, Brendan has always been noted as a lazy center with limited talents. The moment he stepped on the court and has Michael Jordan during his baby years, Brendan proved that he could be a solid center in the league. He may never be an All-Star but this Tar Heel has worked in his game and it's crazy to see that he has been with the Wizards for a stretch of 8 years now. His 7'0 265 lbs frame is rare to find in the NBA that's why the Wizards kept him that long. I think he deserve at least one shout out in this forum and I will give it to him. I've seen him at least show an improvement in his free throw shooting and I have seen him doing a solid job particularly in 2007-08 Season which benefit when Etan Thomas went out with a heart problem. This opportunity allowed Brendan to really improve and had career numbers ESPECIALLY his free throws which he shot 74%. It is the most impressive improvement I've seen from him that year. Last year, he played a handful of games due to a wrist injury but still showed flashes of brilliance once in a while... This season, I am impressed byfar with his numbers. He is currently averaging 12 and 9 and has kept his starting role even if the team acquired Fabricio Oberto, Andray Blatche and JaVale McGee... He had a 19 against ATL and had a double-double against MIA with 16 and 11... Tonight, he had been a monster on the boards though they lost. He had 9 pts and 19 rebounds... I mentioned that Brendan is not a star but I love what his role is on a Wizards team and he understood now what it means to be a solid C.
he goes under the radar, but i appreciated what he brang to tthe team a few years ago. Losing him last year was a big hit to the team that also went mostly un talked about. Washington needs size and he has it along with decent skills.
He's just inconsistent. He plays reall good sometimes using his size to his advantage, but other times he looks like a big, tall high school center who gets lost on the court and makes silly mistakes. I'm not crazy about him at all, he plays too much like Samuel Dalembert who I already don't care for lol.
