    Olynyk was obviously fouled going to the rim though no call was made.
    Just watching his highlights you can tell his ain't average athlete at best..

    If Gonzaga and Pitt meet in the second round, which would be on Saturday, it will be interesting to see how KO does against New Zealander Steven Adams who is bigger and more athletic than Olynyk but not as skilled. Pitt excels at defense while Gonzaga is very efficient on offense.

    People also have to realize that the WCC is a pretty weak conference compared like the ACC, B10, B12, Big East even Pac12

    Neither did Russell Westbrook what? I don't understand what you are trying to say.

    Guys, I've said a few times now, but I don't think its getting across; I'm not trying to say anything against Kabongo. He's a stud. Nothing but compliments for the kid.

    But you'd be hard pressed to find any GM in the NBA who, if given the choice, is going to take Kabongo or Pangos over KO. Maybe 1 out of 30. Maybe.

    Have you watched him play at all? He doesn't rely on Athleticisn one bit.
    Athleticism like Dwight Howard or DeAndre Jordan is not a requirement for a Centers in the NBA.
    Especially with skilled, fundamentally sound Centers like KO.

    I'm just just that Russel Westbrook barely averaged 10 points his last year but, cause of his physical gifts his a star in the NBA. College and NBA are too different games! If your a guard in college and you don't have a jumper you will not dominate. As is the NBA where you can't touch a guard on the perimeter. That's why I feel like Myck will rise in the draft workouts. Will ultimately have the better career.

    I'm just saying his probably played against another 7 footer maybe a handful of a time. Which in the NBA happens every night. I just want to see him do against NBA caliber centers. He plays in the WCC.
