Nobody knows what to expect from this kid....let's keep expectations minimal. His drop stel etc needs to produce against NBA talent for him to have an impact. Glen Davis was like 18/9 in Division 1 College hoops, and was a bit player as a rookie. His skill level is probably 5 times that of Jawai. So we need to expect nothing, and be pleased with anything.

Except Glen Davis didn't play against big guys that play profeesional ball even by Australin standards. There weren't any decent 7fter's in the NCAA last year. He is laso bigger and has more length than Glen Davis. BTW I've been following him for the last year...when the first inital reports were coming out about this guy. I'm not a bandwaggon jumper like most people I do my reasearch. I expect this guy to be physical and bang people around when he's in the game and rebound...Eventually I think he'll also be a decent scorer. Yes his conditioning needs to be augmented ...but I'm sure the coaches will take care of that aspect. Hopefully we see him tonight in the SL game. I'm excited about this guy.
