Default what about sun ming ming

7'9" 370lb Sun Ming Ming

in 2005 the lakers tried him out but passed him up due to his stamina problem. during the time he had a brain tumor that was limiting nearly every function of his body. It has since been removed and Sun has a lot more quickness, stamina, and ability. he needs a pro coach his only problems are in his mind.

I doubt he would fail to make a team if he tried out now. any word on this?

Have you watched the Youtube videos of him? Stamina is the least of his concerns. Since the surgery, he's had various stints with semi pro teams. He's failed to make a significant impact on any of them. He seems to be a nice guy and I'd like to see him make the league, but it just isn't going to happen. Unforunately, he's a stiff. The biggest one I've ever seen. His vertical can't be more than 6 or 7 inches. In fact, he even got hung by the rim on the Jimmy Kimmel Show.

PS. Why's this in the draft forum? He was eligible to be drafted in 2005, but nobody chose him.

If you've seen him with the Grand Rapids Flight recently he's playing well it's not many times when you have a center that can contest an otherwise open midrange J and he finds little competition with any 7 footer. The league today doesn't have very many strong 7 foot players. Ben Wallace may just be too short, Shaq is there, and Yao, but there aren't many others apart from rising stars like Dwight Howard who wouldn't be defending him anyway

This guy is horrible. I watched him on Kimmel, and he got stuffed by the rim trying to dunk. He has no vertical leap.

EDIT: Sorry for saying the same thing as The Answer did, I didnt see that part of the post.

Not even close to Shawn Bradley in athleticism. Shawn Bradley would have absolutely owned Sun Ming Ming in every way except MAYBE outside shooting.

He plays for a team in my area and i wathced him play. He is trying to improve his game and is a moderate force on D because of his sheer size in front of the rim. On offense he doesnt need to jump to dunk but thats about it, although he did try a few outside jumpers that hit the back of the rim and they were actually pretty close to being swishes. Hes got stamina though, he could defanitly play bench mins without getting too tired.

Bottom line, he is not ready fo the nba by a longshot, he is horrible offensivly and would get owned in the nba. defensilvy can give opposing players trouble becuase he is huge and just has to put his hands in front of the rim and push people around. O ya, he cant rebound well either. but in a few years if he works realy hard he may be a passable backup Center in the league.

His coaches are crap, though. If he were given an nba coach he could learn how to back someone down(nobody will compete with him there.), box out, post moves, and overall basketball mentality that he doesn't have currently.

and..Shawn Bradley? Shawn Bradley is a stick and couldn't handle Sun
