How can Somebody rank Kanter over Valanciunas is beyond understanding.
Valanciunas is taller, faster, plays with better effort and motor, has longer
wingspan and better maximum reach, better FT shooter and shot blocker and played
full year in second best basketball league in world, while Kanter had not played
at all in last year and only advantage he has is strenght and weight. All
european scouts agree that Valanciunas is best center in the draft and it is not
even close. If Jazz miss on him it would be a disaster.
This ranking looks like a hash of older information. Recent evaluations counter
some comments about some of the players.Even the prefacing
paragraphs contain old ideas that have long since been discounted, like Jimmer's
height (many successful NBA guards are around his height).No wonder
there are so few comments on this article.
