his potential is exciting. He was viewed as a boom or bust type of prospect, and its obvious that he's booming. Props to Detroit for taking the chance and hitting a home run.

If you don't count shot blocking, ball handling, boxing out, and footwork as a skill, then I don't know what is for big men anymore. I know he can't shoot yet but you gotta remember he's like Dwight Howard size, probably bigger. He doesn't show any bad shooting mechanics at the free throw line either. Does skill only include the offensive post game now? Not too many 19 year olds guys can represent Hakeem's post game arsenal especially someone who grew up playing guard/forward in high school. For what it is, I believe he's quite skilled for his size and only getting better if he gets his work ethic in check. Definitely someone to watch age in the NBA.
he is definitely not as raw as people make him out to be. Sure, his post game is not refined, but dude can handle and pass it quite well for a big man. Not to mention a decently soft touch on his finish.
