    Looks like a big banging bruiser, good athlete for his size but that seems like a lot of money for a Euro center. He's making more than Andersen and he doesn't have the O game Andersen has.

    Ok, he can dunk. He'll probably get eaten alive in the NBA. Just my humble opinion

    He said the Nets would take longer to rebuild than the knicks and he likes D'antoni's system better than Averys :eek:, this dude doesn't watch his NBA

    I wanted him for the Rockets but thought wasn't available until next season. Surely his game translates better to the NBA than Pekovic/Andersen's. Good signing.

    Is this supposed to be a good thing? 9 million for a Russian version of D.J. Mbenga? With moves like these, I'm liking those Knicks picks more and more.

    good lord, what is his wingspan, 13'?
    Watch how his feet never come very far off the floor when he runs. Very odd looking athlete.

    They are paying Stoudemire for offense.
