    Ya, I've got to agree with BC Boy on Noah. I wouldn't exactly say he's a "stud athlete". Like Valanciunas, he's agile and very coordinated, but he's not someone like Chandler.

    I'm not sure why you're down on Valanciunas' athleticism. He's not a high flyer, but that doesn't mean he's not athletic. Noah isn't a high flyer, either. In fact I'd say their athleticism is...

    I already compared Valanciunas to Amir, but I really don't see the comparison to Yao. At all. Yao, as far as I have seen, has always been pretty polished on offense, is a pretty methodical player...

    On ball defense isn't a strength of Bargnani. It's simply the "least weakness". It's still not good.

    Ya, this sort of thing is common with young, skinny guys like Valanciunas. Post defense is done with strength and positioning. That's why older guys are usually much better post defenders.

    Howard wouldn't be an All-NBA center without his strength and vertical, but he's still got skills beyond that. He'd still be a good rebounder and scorer around the basket. He doesn't simply use his...

    For the record, I said that I thought Valanciunas would be better than Chandler and Biedrins. And I came to that conclusion by having watched all of them play.

    Well, first of all, I'm not the one who said "he's waaay ahead of Biedrins and Noah offensively". That was someone else. And I don't actually agree with the comment. But bringing up their NBA...

    Actually, Noah is a better team defender than man to man. Not sure why you think it's the other way around. Noah's biggest weakness defensively is that he doesn't have the strength or bulk to be a...

    Why not? You don't think, say, Derrick Williams is way ahead of Julian Wright offensively? Or that Faried is a better rebounder than Bargnani? You don't have to have played in an NBA game to have...

    I don't think the Chandler comparison is that far off. Especially at the same age. Howard might seem far off, but I don't think you understand the reasoning. Valanciunas obviously isn't the...

    I know you weren't big fan of the pick, but we're obviously not talking about NBA stats, but what we see on the court. I wonder if someone said something similar about Kemba Walker, who's also done...

    What is it with some of these comparisons? Krstic? Have they actually watched Valanciunas? Is it because they're both European? Krstic has never been known for his defense, but has always been a...

    Sorry, but that's an awful comparison. Other than them being white and tall, there really is nothing in common. Montross was stiff and robotic, but strong. He wasn't agile or athletic, at all, and...

    Actually, he was almost 31 the first time he played in the NBA. Yet he still managed to average 12 ppg and 7 rpg over the next 7 years, including a best of 16 ppg, 10 rpg, 3 apg and a block a game. ...

    His problem is not weight, but strength. Young guys don't generally have the strength that older guys do. And it's not just strength but knowledge of how to use it. That all comes with time. I...

    Wow. The young Sabonis was SKINNY! It's been a while since I saw pre-NBA Sabonis. I forgot just how mobile he was. And man was he a good passer. I would have loved to have seen him come to the...

    You know, after watching him in the U19, Dwight Howard also came to mind for me. Obviously, he's nowhere near the physical specimen Howard is, but there was just something about his play that...

    I think Valanciunas is going to be better offensively than either Biedrins or Noah. I would think 15 ppg is probably what he'll end up averaging. He just seems to have better offensive awareness...
