I just saw T.Sani playing 19 th of April...fresh news !!!.
He plays with Gravelines (French League) Espoirs team (under 21). He is born in 1985, and plays with guy sometimes 3 or 4 years older.
Is he good/ Yes he is...he is such a presence in the court, his body is really mature.
Can he play in the NBA in some years: Yes if he goes on adding strenght to his body, adding some range to his J.
Will he play in Old State U.: strongly recruited by UMass and UCLA, but he should play in France, next year he has a chance to break in the pro line-up (at only 17) and may gain a lot of experience + some Euro-Cup exposure, meaning he could be playing for a power-house like Madrid or Bologna in two or three years
NBA: could become a Cliff Robinson in his prime Blazers year:scoring, rebounding, blocking shots
LeBron/Tahirou: never saw LeBron execpt on highlight clips...but with the progress of international scouting, I don't think that if tahirou was better he wouldn't have already told that he would declare next year for 2004 draft. Not the case for the moment.
