I've watched Nader a bunch of times - I briefly spoke to him once as I walked by the bench, was very pleasant - might go see the Claws tomorrow, too.He is good at almost everything so far.His size is impressive, as is his length.He is aggressive attacking the rim, his speed is excellent for his size. He's a little loose with the handle sometimes, and might have some trouble splitting NBA defenses, though his raw strength should help. He is a very strong rebounder, he has a knack for it, reminds me a little of Evan Turner in that regard.Good court vision, solid passer.Good stroke for 3's. Can hit contested shots to an extent.Doesn't have much of a pullup/fadeaway yet, but really a well-rounded player otherwise.Fairly strong, can finish around the rim. Can guard multiple positions, doesn't get pushed around by big men. Lots of potential on defense with his length and footspeed. Reminds me a little there of Tayshaun, Rick Fox, or Robert Horry.Probably a better prospect so far than Mickey or Rozier (both of whom I like a lot). Pretty exciting, he just dominates the game.
Back to the topic. Wow, I thought I was back in my English class in college:-(((Do we have rights to Nader?Smitty77
We still have the rights to Abdel Nader?He's in Maine?
Quote from: Celtics18 on January 15, 2017, 10:01:16 AMWe still have the rights to Abdel Nader?He's in Maine?i believe the celtics have no control over his signing rights and he is free to sign where he wishes. yet, i also believe that a "wink and nod" agreement exists where the celtics will bring him up should he excel, and, a space opens up this year or next.if so, he has fulfilled his side of the bargain. now the celtics need the space.finally, whether or not nader can reproduce these impressive numbers in the nba is the question. young looked very good in the dleague. in the nba? not so such.p.s. good thread rollie. thanks for keeping nader on our collective radar. tp of course.
Pretty sure that because he never signed a contract of any type with the C's, that they still retain his draft rights!As far as his play, I have, and still believe he could be a rotation player in the league right now! I think his current skills are greater than that of Jaylen Brown, though, without the upside. A total waste having him in Maine. Sure, if we were in TRUE contention for a title, that would be OK, but to delay his integration into this team for money purposes is ridiculous.PICK A LANE!
