    Welcome to the board.

    It's Clutch being able to bring people like this here that makes this website the best.

    I'm looking foward to more articles and hopefully podcasts (clutch?) lol.

    This is much better than the crap that littered the forum lately.

    I see Gordan Giricek. I like him. We should bring him over.

    JR, can you just use your HAL9000 powers and post a list of every white player that ever played so we can compare Gentile to them?

    Nice write up! It would be nice to have some versatility off the bench. Sounds like a promising role player.

    For some reason, I see another Papanikolou type player. I hope I'm wrong here.

    Boki had confidence issues that effected his game. Sounds like AG is a bit more tough minded, cocky (in a good way).

    Thanks and good write up.

    Looking forward to Gentile, there're a couple of question marks in his package, for some people in Italy he'll do well in the nba, for others he'll be back in Euro after one/two years due to his lack of 3pt% and speed, but the guy is mentally strong, he likes the challenge and i think he will find a spot in the nba, in fact i think it's almost the opposite of Barngnani situation, Andrea had all the tools to be a great player in the nba, but he failed because he wasn't able to (stay healty) withstand pressure and his confidence just went deep down, Gentile doesn't have the same amount of talent, but he's a fighter.

    AG just seems more fluid offensively then PAPA does. I like the confidence and cockiness, like he knows he can put ball in the hole. Seems stronger as well

    Either way, not really excited about this guy. Hope he proves me wrong of course.
