    Man he really hustles. He looks pretty fluid too. I'm excited to see how good he can be.

    He has both strength and hops. He has all the physical tools to be a special player in the painted area on both ends of the court, if he works hard and learns the skills to go with them.

    Glad the Rockets signed Smith before some other team did. We need to start developing guys who are physically suited for their position versus tweeners.

    If he can be a Ben Wallace type player for us that'll help out a lot.

    What? Where do you gather that info? He is the single most dominant finisher in the DLeague, and I haven't seen anything otherwise to make me think he can't finish well above average.

    Makes no difference, Thabeet is not going to play either way.

    What I noticed wasnt really athleticism hops or length ..... but his footwork defensively was very solid.
