Default What do you think of JJ Hickson's game?

The Blazers like it enough to decide that for now, he'll be their (undersized) starting center.

He should call up Lebron and thank him. In 2009-2010, as Lebron's teammate, people used to say that JJ Hickson had great potential...maybe all-star potential. Seriously.

He's good when getting fed the ball by a good passer. Not much in the Bball IQ department.

Got the handling skills of Greg Little (or used to when he played for the Cavs).

This. He's shown flashes of brilliance.

He's too talented to go MIA as much as he does. I hope he breaks out this season, and starts being consistent.

i think consistency will come as he matures more and more. He's just a dummy. He averaged his best numbers when he played C in Cleveland sans Lebron.

If they're gonna do this, they may as well put LMA at C and Hickson at PF. Hickson at C sounds stupid.

I believe you meant Shaq. Lebron played in Cleveland for years and no one cared who the scrubs were around him...other than Varejao, Z, Mo Williams? Shaq praised JJ (you could be cedric ceballos lol), I've loved his game since then. He struggled in Sacramento but you can't blame it all on him. I wish he was in Dallas teaming up with Dirk and being somewhat like Chandler but obviously not as much a beast as Chandler.

He was horrendous in Sac last year, but so was pretty much everyone. Showed some better stuff with the Blazers, so he might not be a complete waste.

The guy can score but that's about it. Not really great defensively due to his size. He's going to get shat on opening night.

Was the Cavalier's best player after LeBron left, no clue why they traded him.
