    I disagree a bit with the Low. I think Afflalo is a very smooth player. He is hyper active on defense and can actually make some shots. He has a chance to become Hunter with offense. I think he will eventually get more playing time than Stuckey. Stuckey is pretty quick and has the guts to go to the hoop but he has a strange jumper. He kind of reaches back with his wrists to get his shot off. He is very acccurate but it takes time for all that to happen. Its not a quick release.

    That very much in line with how I saw his game over the last couple of years at UCLA.

    :hoops:

    OK, for the benefit of those who ain't seen him play yet.....is it true that his defense is as good as Hunter's? So somebody is calling him a "lock-down" defender, huh?

    I sure hope you're/they're right! :fingerscr

    I'd say we have to watch him against NBA-caliber competition to come up with any conclusions. So far he looked good, but will he in the NBA? Sure hope so.

    Right on!

    Just like Shef has that strange bat wiggle which has kept his major league home run total down to 475 + and counting along with a career OBP of .400.

    If you had a son or daughter or have a son or daughter would you teach him/her Shef's batting stance. Of course not, but it has worked for Shef.

    Unorthodox doesn't mean bad. Hot Rod has scored every place he has played. He will score in the NBA plenty and have a decent shooting percentage to go along with it.

    P.S. on Shef.

    No one in baseball that I have ever seen over many decades has ever swung a bat as hard on such a high percentage of pitches as Shef yet he has an unbelievably low career strikeout total for a slugger of his magnitude.

    No hitting instructor in the world would teach anyone to wiggle their bat and swing as hard as Shef does, assuming that they even could, but it has worked for Shef and continues to work for Shef much to the joy of Tigers fans world over.

    Agree, his release may be a little slow, but I noticed that with his hang time it almost seems like defenders are always on their way down when he gets the shot off. It's like he does that Kobe double clutcher with every shot.
