    Ejim's hands

    I know Matt D was complaining last night about Ejim not using 2 hands, but is anybody else impressed with his ability to catch the ball this year. The last 2 years I would call him stone hands, the way everything seemed to bounce off. Now I would say he has really good hands. The way he rebounds and catches passes has really impressed me. Might be my imagination, but he seems more athletic also. Numerous ally oops. Really impressed how far he has come.

    I keep thinking he might get in a little trouble on his lean in screens at mid court. Looks like he is trying to get somebodys attention at times. Definately got a tough edge to him.

    All year I've been impressed, but last night resembled last year to me.

    Re: Ejim's hands

    I am impressed with Niang and Ejim's hands and old guy tatics down low. They are not the tallest guys in the world but they finish around the rim. I don't think people understand how hard it is at 6-6 and 6-9ish to score around the hoop with an athletic 7-1 down low.

    Re: Ejim's hands

    He had a great game DESPITE his hands. The guy is a monster, a max-effort kind of guy. That doesn't mean he has good hands - he doesn't. He does have other redeeming qualities.

    Put Percy or Georges hands on Ejim, and he's got 2 less TOs/ game, and 4 more points/ game.

    Exactly. He may have only been hitting .300 off of RWs 95 MPH heat, but everything else looks like a hanging curveball now!

    Re: Ejim's hands

    Is it crazy of me to think he used one hand cause he was still sort of sealing off the defender with the other one?

    Still not jumping on the bashing melvin's hands bandwagon.

    Man if Shaq only had a sweet jumper he would have scored more points.

    You mean you used your eyes to acquire information that is relevant to forming an opinion? lol.

    This discussion also reminds me of this classic:
