okay...maybe not.

but i wanted to hear some opinions on what people thought about him...he's a 22 year old 7 footer. He spent last season in Europe to work on his rebounding, but he's already got a great arsenal of post moves, and he can shoot. He can board well and pass as well, and he's a high energy player.

DMO needs to improve his D and conditioning, but he certainly has a ton of potential. Granted, this is the first time he's gotten playing time, but he certainly has noticeable potential in this league, especially considering how yonug and big he is.

Below are some videos of his post moves.

There was some hype about him in europe a couple years prior to him drafted. He has a unique skill set for a big man, but the league has had its fair share of them and especially with a ton of them being busts i.e.(Nikoloz Tskitishvili, Andrea Bargnani, Yi Jianlian, Vladimir Radmanović). I hope he can at the very least turn into a rotation player.

lol at the announcer thinking he traveled on the first one "how many pivots do you get?"

smh - unlimited as long as you keep the same pivot foot. Wow.

Stop trolling. The best PF is obviously Bargs. :pity:

He's got a similar skill set to Bargs but he seems to have a motor and a passion that Il Mago never possessed.

But yeah he is not very good defensively and is probably as good a rebounder as Bargs ( i.e worse than a point guard)

If he works hard he could get to allstar level.

Good thing for him that Mirotic is going to be on the other conference.

I laughed pretty hard at the title. In class. Not cool bro.
He was the best in Europe.

I like D-Mo though, don't get me wrong. He's extremely crafty and fun to watch for sure.

T-Rob will end up being the main guy at PF

His averages as a starter are 13 7 and 5. Shooting 44% and 50% from 3 and 100% from the FT line. Not bad

He's worse than Bargnani

No he isn't. D-Mo will be the better player imo.
