    He looks like a kid dunking on one of those "Lil Tykes" baskets.

    I am hesitant because no player that tall holds up.

    But man, imagining a Eason / Smith / Wemby frontcourt , if they all turn into the players we think they will, would be absolutely nuts.

    Has Boban had many injuries?

    Boban is a stiff who doesn't rely on athleticism or even moving.

    He also averages less than ten minutes per game.

    If we can only play Wemby 10 minutes a game for him to stay healthy, that kinda reinforces my point.

    If we're looking for some hopium, then Mark Eaton is the example of a durable 7'4 guy. While he wasn't a gazelle, I wouldn't call him a complete stiff either. But yeah, sadly he's one of very few durable guys at that height. He and Rik Smits?

    Kareem held up well enough. Scoot could get hurt a la D. Rose. Vic's talent is worth the risk.

    Reminds me of Ralph Sampson at that age.

    Well I've just checked out Sampson's highlights from Virginia, and I think you're right. Though the game was noticibly different back then. Big men were just posting up pretty much all the time (though Sampson did drain a few midrange jumpers in the video below).

    Story has it that an old scientist living in a secluded laboratory in the French Alps had mysteriously obtained DNA samples from Durant and Gobert. After many years he was finally able to successfully clone a hybrid human baby Wemba. He proudly called him DUBERT.

    :cool:

    This kid is getting better, was worried the bigger he got the more clumsy he would be. He looks good, so fluid.
