re: Andrew Del Piero can definitely play pro


you were probally 3 when Shaq played freshman ball at LSU, Shaq had little Baseket ball skills, just ask Dale Brown, but with his size and height plus brains, he was able become a great college player who never got to the big game, his technique was acttually perfected in the pro's,

Please don't kid yourself. Even though some high school prep teams are basically d-league teams the European teams play the patsy when they play our college teams.

Have you looked at an NBA roster lately? Half of the big men are from Europe... at least the good ones.

And majority of those big men aren't great nab players...and if not great big mend are in nab from euro..prob a ton of shite over there.

Euros have around 50 players in nba..that's not a ton for a whole continent.with so many teams theres a spot for bad players

FIFY...

Dwight Howard is probably the best US Born center, and he probably isn't the best 7 Footer on his own team.

Britney Griner from Baylor would probably own his ass. LOL I was not too impressed with what I saw.

I AM impressed that he's progressed from not really playing since 9th grade to starting in the SEC, but I think he's in for a rough SEC year.

I was much older than 3 and I remember it well. As raw a skill set as Shaq had at that time are you really even making a passing comparison between Shaq as a frosh and ADP now?

If ADP had a couple of more years to develop his footwork, get in better shape and just get some repititions, yes...I think with his size he could play some decent Euro level pro ball.

Heck, I imagine even next year he could latch on with some lower level foreign pro league. I would guess there would be some teams that would roll the dice to try to develop him over time and it looks like he has the work ethic to make a go of it.

My tab does terrible autocorrects.

For a fEw years tony parker was arguably the best pg in the league....doesn't mean majority of American guards weren't better than euros.so not sure how your statement proves euro has no bad big men

I'm not saying that he will ever be as good as Shaq was after Shaq left LSU, the years that Shaq played we had the best players in the nation but we couldn't get to the sweet 16, but big Del is a work in progress

re: Andrew Del Piero can definitely play pro


I haven't been able see his hook close up. Does he put a good amount of spin on it? A good amount of Spin is the key to the jump hook and sweeping hook. Because in order to spin it ,the arm automatically is made to be straight up. Spinning dictates straightning of the arm (elbow under the ball). If he learns to take one bounce and two steps across the lane and SPIN. it up, he would be dangerous.
And the time he got his shot blocked a few games ago- he just needs to realize when you turn (at a stand still)with the shooting arm-turning in first . You're not able to stun or knock back(got to feel defender initially) the defender-like you can do,when you turn/lead with the arm that you're not shooting with. The reason it was blocked the defender had space to see what AD was about to do and he had time to jump and put a hand in balls path.
When turning with shooting arm in first situation, the pump FAKE is the thing to do.
There's another way to hand that if your got Shaq type lowered
shoulder and hands.

I've only seen a few games this year and he actually surprised me. I think he has real potential too. All big guys look clumsy when they're young like him. With that name, he'll make a euro team for sure

He has some skills. He needs to develop his body to the extent that he can. I admire the guy, and you have to give Johnson and Jones credit for allowing him to play; most coaches would not have done this.
