TC is impressed with his first game.
Will continue to monitor him for the time being but he looks very solid.
Proud Australian Bobcats Fan!!!
I'm just happy that Dunlap finally gave Adrien some real minutes. I watched enough of him at UConn to know that he'd give us the grit in the paint that we've been missing. Sure he has his limitations with his size and athleticism but he's not as stiff as Haywood, raw as Biyombo, soft as Warrick, or dumb as Mullens and Tyrus. He's just solid enough.
Seems like a legit 4, which we need more than anything right now. Let's hope he doesn't become the victim of one of Dunlap's weird rotational decisions. Unless Warrick or Adrien fall off big time, I'd be happy to go with them going forward this year, and dump Mullens for whatever we can get. Warrick and Mullens are somewhat similar, except Warrick knows to stay inside the arc, while Adrien, as stated above, provides the grit and rebounding ability you traditionally expect from your power forward. Excellent signing by Cho if he can keep it up.
In Cho I Trust
I'm sorry if I sound like a broken record....
I don't see how a muscled 4-man with a nearly 9-foot standing reach and a 7'2" wingspan is physically-limited. That borders on Center territory.
Height is overrated. Yes, it can help you see over people at times, but you do nothing with the top of your head in basketball.
I'm actually excited about Adrien as a prospect. And I hate that I had to miss that Chicago game!
Its like whodafuck all over again
and I like Adrien
Hey, when you're getting the shit kicked out of you what else can you do but scream:
Sorry couldn't help myself.

I watched the game, he did have a good game, but at the same time I saw many limitations. Turn over prone, free throws and forcing his own offence
