OK, I was totally wrong on Caracter. Dude is a baller. I'm very impressed with that pick. Dude will get some minutes this season, not many but some. And holy cow, he's got a nice touch. IF he develops, he could be a nice bench guy on a title team. Mychael Thompson style. I have no clue of his ceiling, but I wish he had 3 more inches on him...though if he did we'd never have him.

Dude has nimble footwork too. Can't wait to see him in preseason.

He's a POOR MAN'S David West without the JUMPER... (YET). He'll develop really well in 3-4 years.

He already seems to slim down with added quickness. He doesn't look 275. He's more like 250 now.

^Better footwork. He needs to since he's shorter and can't jump that high.

Bynum has a lot of length and strength and his feet aren't that quick, so he focuses on moves that create separation using his strength and uses his length to finish.

Caracter looks solid against this competition. Post moves + soft touch galore. Nice timing on blocking shots as well. Showed he could throw a nice lead pass after a rebound. He just looks comfortable and confident. I'm really liking this guy.

Caracter is instantly our 4th best post player.

Ebanks is so much like Ariza it's scary.

Thanx a lot!

I can't wait to not only watch these guys play some time in the regular season, but can't wait to have this guys in the next NBA 2k.

hm...i c what the hype is all about. these guys can play.

one thing i noticed...

caracter has some good post moves, but ima talk about one in particular. the one semi hook shot. he uses that a lot but the way he shoots his hook, its pretty low. considering theres taller and better players in the nba, that hook shot is easily gonna get blocked, and if not blocked, challenged pretty well. dont no if its gonna go in if challenged by dwight, lopez, or the likes.

ebanks is pretty much a poor mans trevor. with developement and practice with the pros, im really excited to c how he can turn out. has range in his shot and can drive in and finish pretty well. he also has those long arms which is complementary for his good d as well.

both solid second rounders.

^Yeah, but the last I checked, Lopez, Dwight, etc are centers. Most PF's don't block shots upfront. The ones that do are really good like Duncan, Pau and KG. If Caracter plays against Al Jefferson, Stoudemire, Nowitski, Bosh, Boozer, Odom etc, etc, his shot isn't likely to get blocked since those guys usually put their hands up and hope you miss. In addition to low post moves, Caracter also has high-post moves like step-back fadeaway J's. He also has good footspeed to take the taller guys off the dribble, so it's not like he's limited to one particular aspect of his game.
