Summary: He was easily the most dominant player on the floor at both ends in Portsmouth. He destroyed everyone he played against. His endless energy, toughness and top-notch athleticism really stood out. He also showed a nice mid-range game and ran the floor very well for such a big, bulky guy. His measurements disappointed everyone, but his long arms, vertical leap and physical strength might make him an exception to the undersized power forward rule. No one is putting too much stock in what he did at the PIT. Given his talent and physicality, he should have dominated. But if he can have a repeat performance in Chicago, his stock will really climb.
