I thought you were going to ignore me…
but yeah, I totally agree. I thought he looked really good when he was on the floor early in the season. raw, as you put it, but he just oozes potential. and diakite is probably good comp and agree he looked ahead.
I don’t know if we are supposed to expect him to hit 3s (honest question, i don’t know), so maybe Jay isn’t the comp, but they came in with kinda similar situations (really tall but way too skinny), and I’d say Kadin is light years ahead of Jay at a similar time, though eerily similar in getting bogged down a little with health stuff.
Note: “ahead of jay” is open to interpretation so what I’m talking about here is more like traditional post play. I don’t really need Kadin to shoot like Jay. I almost don’t want him to try. Jay was a hell of a shooter and a hell of shot blocker, but not a super physical presence in the post. I’m hoping Kadin is able to bulk up a little better. I really hope this isn’t viewed as being too critical, because I am not trying to disparage a guy that I thought was a really good player for us and clearly a good dude, as all our players seem to be.
Edit: in case it’s not clear, I am wildly bullish Kadin Shedrick stock. Buy of the century right here.
