re: Somone convince me Len is a good pick


I have posted about Len and the great fit for our team ad nauseum. No reason to rehash it because you weren't paying attention.

Alex Len plays exactly like Robin Lopez. Cry about it.

Too bad you cant expound upon this.


And how is height an intangible? ...Pretty sure it's a quantitative measure...

Wowwwww, again.....im not ignorant to the "7-footer" comment, I know he's 7 ft.

I EXPOUNDED upon the "legit" portion of the comment....legit is an adjective that I was taking as a compliment to his game not to his height.

After watching a few of his highlight tapes and then watching some of his game tapes (not actual tapes btw), his game is exactly like Lopez's. He has flashes of being a good center, but tends to get lost amongst smaller players. Plays a little soft sometimes and relies on his height too much. I saw him make some nice shots from mid-range, but then I saw some really bad bricks. Everything about him reminds me of Lopez, a back-up center that can give you a boost here and there, but isnt necessarily a game-changer.

So you have never heard someone called a legit 7 footer? Meaning they are legitimately 7 feet tall or taller.

eta
I agree with you by the way, that I don't see Len as much more than a back up in the league.

Roy Hibbert sophomore stats at GU: 11.6 ppg, 59% FG, 72.3 FT%, 6.9 RPG, 1.6 BPG

Alex Len sophomore stats: 11.9 ppg, 53% FG, 69 % FT, 7.8 RPG, 2.1 BPG.


Are you arguing that Len has Hibbert's work ethic? Because that's what makes Roy good.

There cant be much argument to len's w/e. and if it matches roy's, the pels will be hell to deal with.

to be fair, hibbert isn't even that good

but no, len doesn't have his work ethic b/c he has something hibbert lacks: athleticism

I don't think you can have a poor work ethic when:

1. Len gained 20-25 pounds after his freshman year and it wasn't fat.

2. Have the type of skillset he possesses.

Don't know how well he'll translate but I don't see a guy with bad work ethic.
