I mentioned him awhile ago as not being half bad and some people laughed and took 30 points from me...then i said hes playing as well or almost as well as oden(when given minutes and only on defense and rebounding) and someone said i should be slapped for that comment so ive sat watched and waited....in 2 games that he has started hes had 13 and 12 reb and 4 blks each time...i said it before and ill say it again this guy is a pretty good back up center and could start on some teams over some of these better offensive center (but they are soft)..he had 4 and 3 fouls in those games also...ive noticed when he gets alot of minutes he plays pretty well..i think him playing well really helps the lakers in the long run
yeah, he looks solid. He also had 7 blocks in a preseason game i believe. He does have the benefit of no one expecting anything from him so he get's some pretty easy looks. But he has a soft touch and he is athletic. His biggest thing is that unlike many 3rd stringers, he plays aggresive and doesn't play like a guy who is not supposed to be taking shots. He thinks he's Olajuwon in his own mind.
lol..yeah he does think that..he also thinks his jumper is the same as a shooting guard..lol..as long as you continues to play like he has though im not gonna complain
