      Problem with DLeague is a lot of players can become "black holes". You have a whole team trying to get attention from scouts while 2-4 players already have contracts. Unless players are really personable, you have a pass-first point guard, or the coach has an iron-fist its tough for nba contract players to get big numbers(big like 30+pts). That's decent numbers for him. But I still expect more, if he expects to survive in the league. He should spend 3/4 of the season down there. He needs the time on the floor and become the type of player who demands the ball on offence down there.

        I watched a some of the game and Alabi was asking for the ball in paint a lot so I'd have to say he is demanding the ball offensively.

          Game #2

          MP 24
          Fouls 4 - That is 8 is two games in about 50 minutes in the D-League where no one guards anyone.

          FGA 6
          FGM 1
          FTA 8
          FTM 6
          Points 8
          Blocks 2
          Turnovers 3

          I saw part of the game and he was running like he was in mud up to his ankles

          This was the second of a back to back.

          He also had trouble with that in the LVSL

          Seems like he is not too well conditioned.

          Maybe playing 2 games a week in the D-League will help.

          By Comparison Johnson in the D-League averaged per game in 32 mpg

          Fouls 4 in same as about Alabi in about 8 more mpg

          Points 18
          Rebounds 9
          Blocks 2
          FG% 64%
          FT% 74

          Look at the problems Johnson is still having learning how to play in the NBA.

          Alabi has a long way to go 4sure.

            he is 7'2 I wouldn't expect him to be too fast from what I have seen I think he will out run most big men in the league

              According to his Chicago combine measurements he is only 6'11 1/2"


              Noah is 6'11"

              Even Amir is now probably 6'10 to 6'11"

                    +1 Alabi was constantly calling for the ball but other players wouldnt pass it up and instead took some poor shots
