    No they sound more like Vikings. Schwarzenegger's accent is much deeper. They sound like red neck Vikings... If that makes any sense
    i've never actually met any vikings... couldn't say... i have met plenty of norweigans, swedes, danes, and finns... and the nords in skyrim sound much more like Schwarzenegger than they do to any of those people... they have a distinct germanic/bavarian sound to their accents

    lol idk why i said vikings. I guess its like a mix between swedish, german, and southern american(Red Neck) accents. They sound nothing like Schwarzenegger, his voice is much more aggressive and deeper

    A 7 footer who shoots over 41 percent from 3 and has toughness under the hoop is worth a look.

    This is exactly it. He's a player who doesn't "look like" an NBA player, but is extremely effective on the court. Think Kevin Love--nobody believed he was for real for his first two and a half seasons because he was a slightly chubby white dude without leaping ability.

    Love was a 5th overall pick in a draft where Rose and Westbrook were picked ahead of him. Not exactly a sleeper.

    No, not a sleeper. But still severely underrated for his first couple seasons--the mainstream reaction to the Kahn's draft night trade that got Love and Mike Miller for Mayo and bad contracts was that it was a terrible deal. Love didn't even get selected to play in the Rookie Game at all-star weekend his first year despite averaging a double-double.

    I wasn't saying he was a sleeper, just that he was under-rated because he's an "unathletic" white guy.

    I don't see how this hurts us. From what I'm getting here, he is Aaron Gray who can shoot 3's. Need I remind you we are paying a premium price on a 7 footer who can't rebound and shoot 3's.

    I watched one video and he has the Luis Scola scoop shot in the paint. He slips every pick but he seems skilled enough to handle the pinch post.

    This man eats up the paint with his size.

    There's a guy entering the draft named LeBryant Nash. If that doesn't scream NBA, I don't know what does.

    he's a beastly slasher, who can take it strong to the rim, control the ball, has great court vision and he's a dimer. he averages 40 and 20

    He's a combination of LeBron, Kobe, and Nash.

    Great Post. I think John Bryant will get a shot somewhere.

    First, then new CBA means we will see a lot more churn of players back-and-forth to Europe and the D-league.

    Second, John Hollinger getting hired in Memphis is a sign that advanced stats geeks have more and more decision-making power in the NBA, and this guy is an advanced stats geek's wet dream. Here is some more analysis from The NBA Geek's blog:
