At different computer, so posts will be reduced for the next several days. Yesterday: A good day...three closed par wins and two "win win "pars. Thanks Cubs, Indians and Orioles. Two start up par loses with Indians and Rangers. Rangers +1.5 was beyond words. Still in shock over that debacle.l. Congrats to winners, back soon.
Embraces playing inside and doesn't try to be something he is not
Attacks the glass
Length helps offset his lack of great ups
Mobility; moves quicker than you would expect from a player his size
Range out to the three-point line
Needs to improve as a pick and roll defender
Guarding quicker players on the perimeter
Summary: Sullinger surprised many by turning down a likely top five spot in the 2011 NBA Draft and choosing to return for his sophomore year. He is a beast down low and loves throwing his body around and being physical in the paint. The former two-time Mr. Ohio Basketball is not the greatest athlete in the world which might make his transition to the NBA a little more difficult, but he is still a lock to be a top-10 pick if he declares after his sophomore campaign.
Player Comparison: Elton Brand. Brand came into the league somewhat limited by his 6-9 height but made up for it with his ability to out-physical his opponents. That describes Sullinger perfectly. The Buckeye sophomore does not yet have the perimeter game that Brand did when he entered the league but should make a similar impact from the get-go.
