PBA Imports : Walter Sharpe Edition

There was the Balkman incident I posted a few weeks ago(http://nbadraft.net/forum/renaldo-balkman). Now Walter Sharpe made headlines in the Philippines. He was found drunk and sleeping in the pavement of a parking lot.

Crazy

That is crazy, I know Big Walt, he's from my hometown and we play in the summertime. Im not sure what happened here, but I know for a FACT he has been dealing with Narcolepsy for a long time now. He had problems in College because it had gotten to a point where he couldnt stay awake in class.

So its true

Too bad he suffered from this ailment. If only he had played well. In his first game replacing Justin Williams and coming from jet lag, he played ok but his team lost. Second game, just 20 mins with only 2 points because of the 6 fouls. Problem was, he was his team wanted him to play the 5/4 position but he is more of a scoring 3. Alas the fouls he got.

Yea unfortunately.

He's a HIGH HIGH talent. At about 6'10, he can shoot and handle the ball with ease, and has NBA athleticism. His problem has hindered him big time, but he'll always be able to find a time because of his size and skillset. And like you said, he defitely not a 5/4.... 4/3/5 or 3/4 would suit him better
