6"6, lanky, strong, quick, ATHLETIC, defensive, aggresive, etc. He will fit in perfectly with the Cavs, I can see this dude locking down other teams perimeter players, him and LeBron will pretty much lock down he other stars easily (Against a team like Orlando, this is key).
Worst case scenerio = Tayshaun Prince and that's fine. I just see him as a guy that will shut down other players and be aggresive enough to finish at the rim. He will be doing something like Courtney Lee where you don't focus on him, yet he starts and starts to get his stats in for himself. Will be a great year for Cavs.
On Cavs Forums most fans were balistic after Cavs made this pick saying it was the worst of the draft. I admit I am one of them as Cavs should have drafted Young or Brown with that pick. They could have a nice role off the bench possibly since this Dude from the Congo on't be NBA ready for at least a couple years at the very least. The Cavs salvaged the second Round with Danny Green.
This pick made almost no sense. The only possible reason I can see for making this move was that they can keep him in Europe and he won't eat a ton of cap space in the near future.
Sam Young was the absolute perfect choice for what this team needs right now. How is a project player that probably won't see the floor for 2-3 years a quality pick? It was easily the most head-scratching pick of the first round. They could have almost certainly had him in the second round and still got Sam Young to boot.
I just don't understand it, unless this is some kind of money loophole.
His highlight package was the quality of the f#cking Zapruder film and he was on some overseas B-Team.
Uhh no. I've seen Christian play many times, probably more than most of these scouts since I do some work for the LEB leagues and he's nothing more than an extremely raw talent on the NBA level. He's not even ready to be a rotation player in the ACB let alone the NBA. He's got above average athleticism and some good shooting ability. If he can put it all together, you might see him in the NBA in 3-4 years.
