I saw the Lakers game last night.
Kanter and Carroll have brought an attitude that the Jazz sorely have need.
Carroll reminds me of Dennis Rodman. He brings energy + attitude
and he must be working on his shot because he is shooting the ball
Kanter was a beast. In a couple of years is it that outlandish to think
that Kanter will be better than Dwight Howard?
Mo Williams is very talented—very speedy, great dribbler and a good
shooter both in half court sets and at the free throw line. In my view
though the key to this team’s success is not Williams aforementioned
talents as an individual but can he be a distributor and get the ball to
others. Earlier in the year I was disappointed in his ability to do so.
He would make bounce passes that were kicked/deflected and at times
especially at the end of games he was looking for his own shot—I think
he has been better in this regard lately—we will see if it continues.
Totally agree… to be more specific:
1) Diet Kanter is awesome, a young, strong and athletic body, if we trade Jefferson (who is better theese days) we can substitute him
2) Sorry I like natural pg,s im not a Mo’s fan, but I like his aggressive attitude.
3) Carroll… I love Carroll he’s a hard D man, brings energy to this team, an historycal weak team.
Kanter is definitively going to be better offensively than Howard. I still think Favors has a better comparison to Howard though.
Favors is definitey more the Howard type. To me, Kanter looks more like the next “Big Fundamental” like Tim Duncan or Kevin Love. An offensive technician, who uses great footwork and just gets the ball in the hoop.
I was a big believer in Kanter. But after seeing his will power and work ethic of studying the game and how athletic he is with some nutrition management, I change my mind. Im convinced that if he would have been elgible to play in the NCAA he would have been the Anthony Davis of that years draft.
I think he is as strong or a stronger competitor than Anthony Davis. Thats the attribute of a superstar that will get you through playoffs when things get physical and tough. He is at home with that kind of game.
This is still his ROOKIE year! 20 years old. Picked up a basketball 5 years ago and he dominated the Lakers low post bench and held his own against Dwight his Rookie year.
In just the last few months his low post offense has jumped to NBA game speed. His hip speed on the pivot added to his natural strength is going to be too much for most centers in the world.
You add his will to win (comparible to Dirk who’s record in the nike hoops summit was beaten by Kanter) , His natural strength, his study habits (his dad is a professor), his Euro skills of court vision, hands, and shooting range… You have the ideal prototype for the NBA’s future big man.
I saw Deron’s first summer games in the NBA at the rocky mountain revue and I was immediately impressed even though people were calling his first step off the dribble slow. Im more impressed with Kanter.
