I wrote about him in the game preview and came out even more impressed.

KG's killer instinct rubbing off on him would do him some good.

  • We may as well put Tyrion in at center.

Subtle shot at the Celtics?  :o
I like Marcus Smart

We'll get #18 this postseason and retaliate! (;

No, just complimenting his current team.

I think he was the best NBA prospect in that game last night.  Really like his game.  Didn't really know of him before the tourney (don't want much college ball) but the kid impressed the heck out of me throughout the tourney.

He's got size, ridiculous athleticism, and some good, old fashioned brute strength.  Had this one beautiful hook shot in the 2nd half last night,   Don't see the hook almost at all in college ball!

He was pretty limited in some of the other games offensively but should be a Dikembe Mutumbo type at the worst.  I am always leery of Pitino guys because he is a system coach and guys have to fit his system.   Will he fit ours?   He will be gone by the time we pick most likely so it's moot.   But I can't recall many great Pitino pros.

It was a really fun tournament, but man, officiating was lousy throughout the whole thing.  Lots and lots of bad calls, both in and out of crunch time.

I liked him a lot as well. Reminded me a lot of Serge Ibaka with the blocks and alterig shots. Also seemed like a decent offensive game, couple jumpers and hook shots
