    You do realize Elton Brand has a freakish wingspan of 7 feet 5 inches right?

    Yeah, I know he does. And I also know Taft has a good wingspan too. Is this the only reason why?

    What's the difference between him and a Melvin Ely.

    <div class="quote_poster">Quoting shapecity:</div><div class="quote_post">I told you why ... he's not as <u>explosive</u> as Amare or Dice. He's not as athletic as Amare and doesn't have the same dribbling ability as him or the skill to extend a defender outside the key yet. I'm sure he'll develop those skills if he works hard in the NBA, but Amare came in to the league with those abilities already. I think people compare him to Amare and Dice because of his body type. He already has an NBA body at age 19, just like Amare had.</div>
    Amare is powerful,fast,intense,McDyess is wiry,but strong,a leaper. Taft is a methodical back-in,post up guy who very often doesn't show what quickness he has,and so,offensively he is much like Erick Dampier-though a bit smaller and not as tough on the boards. Amare is a standout in transition-Taft?no comparison possible.

    While Ellis seemed to feel the McD game should have showcased him,he simply did not outplay the other guys on the floor and his numbers from Mississippi hs ball were not enough to make up the difference. Green,Webster and Chandler,the guy from Alaska showed a lot,Paulus looked good,McRoberts and Wright were impressive,as was the 7 ft dude headed to U Conn. Louis Williams looked good-not round 1 good. Ellis didn't sink shots in a money situation,or find other ways to impress. Green may dissapoint,he may slack off,but as for ability and skills-he's ready to play. He's 6-8 about 205-210. M Ellis and Louis Williams are under 6-3 180-and to the NBA all 3 are projected shooting G's. When some question whether Salim Stoudamire can play point,I think of all the NBA point G's who played for Lute Olsen. When they say Ellis or Williams can go from HS shooters to NBA point-I can't come up with somebody who has. Ellis and Williams may be seen as top incoming freshman prospects,I guess,but NBA?

    Please, give me Petro or someone else over Taft. The Knicks can use a Dalembert-like center in the post and if Aguirre works with him, he can have a bigger upside than Taft.

    Btw, has anyone heard of Andrea Bargnani? I got a little info on him by someone on this site, but could someone give me more? Thanks.

    I don't know a whole lot, though I've heard a bit from fans of Benetton Treviso. I'm sure more will get out soon, but essentially Bargnani is a lightning quick big man. He doesn't get off the bench much as such a young player on one of the best teams in Europe, but he's easily got 3 point range, and is a decent shotblocker but a bad rebounder for his size, though he'll need to bulk up alot. As most rookies do, he tends to get into foul trouble against bigger guys. He's also got good ball-handling skills, but is maybe only an average leaper and definitely has little in terms of a post game. (He sounds like a lot of players, doesn't he? Skita comes to mind.)

    Fran Vazquez... why is he so high? Just wondering about why everyone is so high on him.

    From what I've heard and seen of Fran, he's got a lot of raw physical tools that translate well into the NBA. He's got adequate height but a really good wingspan, he's got good footspeed, and he's a hard worker to boot. Not that he's all perfect; he doesn't have his fundamentals down quite yet, so his defense is only ok (his major strength is shotblocking) and his offense is very raw (but some of the strides he has made just this season are amazing). Thus, it seems that he's rated a lot on his current physical tools, his potential and his hustle. He's automatically eligible due to his age, so a team would be silly to pass up a raw talent if their other guys are taken, but really, he would benefit from finding a team that can keep him in Europe for a year to let him develop there on a less stressful level.
