J.J. Hickson

I've been watching J.J. Hickson this season.. Especially in games that he started in mid-season, and I've seen some flashes of brilliance. I remember back then in about 2006, at the Elite 24 game, he had about 38pts and was the MVP with players like Beasley, Love, Aldrich and Samardo Samuels playing down low. Is he becoming what Michael Beasley could have (or still could be) been?

I mean, he's got decent speed and he's obviously got the NBA body by now.. And the only part that was keeping him from being so good are his hands, which are ALOT better now.

Could be be a solid 15-8 guy? Maybe even a 19-10 guy?

And 19-8 doesn't mean you're

And 19-8 doesn't mean you're one of the best bigs in the L.. Remember Krstic was a 17-8 guy and he wasn't considered elite.

I know that it's very hard to find a good big and Hickson has shown glimpses of what he could be.

Hickson is more like a

Hickson is more like a Brandon Bass type of role player, maybe a starter on a average team. Got skills but nothing to overwhelming.

Brandon Bass is actually a

Brandon Bass is actually a pretty good comparison. I think Hickson is like three inches taller though. Isn't Bass only 6' 6"? Hickson is at least 6' 9". Hickson is also more athletic.

Say what you want but just a

Say what you want but just a minute ago, during the game, they were standing side by side and Lebron was taller.. Same thing with Ben Wallace. Side by side, Lebron was taller.

IF LeBron is taller than

IF LeBron is taller than Hickson, it's not by much. No more than an inch, if that. LeBron says he's 6' 9" himself though, so he's probably an inch taller.

krstic was never a 17/8 guy...his best year he averaged 16.4 ppg, 6.8 rpg through 26 games...

Kenyon Martin, really? Did

Kenyon Martin, really? Did you watch him his first few years in the league? The man was a beast, and was one of the best defensive players in the NBA until he got hurt and left the Nets. If Hickson ever gets that good then the Cavs will be glad they didn't trade him this year. People are hyping him up way to much to the point were they were saying Hickson + expiring was worth Jameson/Troy Murphy. I don't see him doing anything different from what Glen Davis does for the Celtics or what Turiaf did for the Lakers.
