It's early, but I was very impressed with him, offensively he's not much, although his sheer size created a ton of space for bynum and their other guards because amir had to stick to him like glue leaving wide open lanes to the basket.
but defensively, he was pretty good - very active. Either he progressed a lot over the summer, or some people really didn't do their job scouting this guy.
and his physical abilities are just crazy, maybe he's slightly smaller than howard, but his hands are so long that their reach must be similar.
You listened to an american broadcast from detroit where they hyped him insanely.
He had 1 good dunk, 1 goaltending and 1 basket violation that I saw.
Nothing else he did was overly noticeable to me.
