Default Hamed EHADADI joining grizz

The iconic iranian center will be joining the grizz by the end of the week. He is a skilled 7'2'' big man. His stats in the olympic games were impressive he put 17ppg almost 12rpg and over 2bpg. His biggest weakness is soft hands in the post. He is a bit turnover prone. And he has more finesse then brute force to his game. But he is still young and a nice project to have. Good pick up by the grizz.

I read somewhere that no team would be allowed to sign him because of him being from Iran. Maybe they changed their mind.

So is he finally allowed to go to the states? I remember reading something that said he couldn't and that no team in the NBA was allowed to contact with him.

Dude Ehadadi and Iran has been playing in the olympics and is actually playing great. He has also played in some pick up games onshore.

Completely throwing out the statement "(Insert country here) play basketball?" Is really wrong and ignorant. Its about the same as labeling the english as rugby / football / cricket fans and don't know anything about baseball / basketball and american football.

Yeah originally the us didnt want iran citizens working over here. They required them to get work permits. They finally allowed him to get one. I read a quote where hamed was calling ivaroni his coach. So im pretty sure this is a done deal.

Man iran has been playing horrible. They got beat by an avg of like 25ppg. Now hamed played awesome. But the rest of his team were really lacking talent.

Im not agreeing with grizzled,on sterotyping countries. But when I think of sports and iran nothing really comes to mind. I think its great that they are beginning to build a history in basketball. Hopefully in the future they will have a solid foundation.

Man its not about being american or not. If you told me the dude was from antartica I would be acting the same way. Just here recently people have decided to give respect to the chinese basketball players. Now if that man comes over here and takes darkos spot. Then I will eat my crow and give the man some props.

Ehdadi is a beat. great low post scorer. has a few nifty moves in the low post. he is allready a better center then the likes of oberto, diop and etc. he will score a few point with good effeciency. he is also a great rebounder. i see him being a future fourteen and eleven boards type prospects. you guys go a steal in this guy.
