That was the knock against him leading up to the NBA Draft, and it was pretty clear to anyone who saw the new Grizzlies' center play in summer league action.
He's long, lean, muscular and raw.
But a 57-raw? Really, 2K Sports?
It appears so.
To put that rating in perspective, Derrick Brown(notes) got a 69 overall, Sam Young(notes) a 67, Chase Budinger(notes) a 65 and Danny Green(notes) a 64. All four of those rookie forwards were second round picks.
That's what Grizzlies fans are hoping for, anyway.
By the way, did anyone out there pick up copies of "NBA Live 10" or "NBA 2K10" yesterday? Should I ditch my classic NES' "Double Dribble" game for either of 'em? Let me know in the comments, gamers. Cheers.
