He definitly seems to have a nice touch around the basket, judging from the first vid. I just think, he's a bit too thin and also won't grab that many boards as we might expect due to his weight and lack of effort when going for a board. He seems to just use his height and let the ball come to him.

That was my impression too. Someone here posted that he was softer than a 12 year old Ricky Rubio, and somehow it is true. He will obviously gain some weight when he will arrive here, so if he really try he can be a beast on the boards and scoring close to the rim. We will see if he can adapt to the animals he has to face in the NBA.

Yeah haddadi is a more finess player, not abanger. Gasol is going to be your banger. And darko is a mixture of the two, which imo is why he never really amounted to much cause he never became a certain archetype he was just a mixture of centers.

Darko's problem is more in his head than anything, IMO. He has the tools but he is not smart enough (basketball wise) to use them correctly.

Your basic players tries to take afew aspects of the game and get really good at one or two things. Like certain people are really good at shooting threes, or rebounding, or playing defense. Darko tried to get good at everything then he realized that it was to hard and gave up. Which is why he is only just barely ok at almost everything. He is an ok shooter, he runs the floor ok, he plays ok defense, he is an ok shot blocker, an ok passer. And you put this all together and he is not very good. Or at best he is just an ok basketball player.
