That's great ! I'm very happy for Gelabale.

I am a French guy and i live in Cholet (he made his pro debut with Cholet Basket). Gelabale is for real. He was very talented and everybody knew he would end in the NBA. He improved his game year by year : not very strong but very athletic, can really dunk, nice shot and a good defender.

He might not play a lot behind Ray Allen, but he will provide a lot off the bench.

And funny thing if you didn't know it. About his family name Gelabale : we pronounce it like "j'ai la balle" and it means "i have the ball". He was born for this sport :)

Gelabale is a very athletic player. And thanks to that, he can defend, rebound and block shots. Hes a very smart player, hes a true team player, we dont see him often go one on one or force shots, if he is open hes gonna make shots, he has really gained confidence with his jump shot over the past two years.

But i think with his abilites he could penetrate more, he could be a very good slasher if he was more agressive.

i can't find a good comparison, but he's a little thin, very athletic, can shoot and defend, so i would say he's a Andre Iguodala with a more confident shot.

and i will tell you more about him when i'll see him play in the world championship in Japan next month.
