He is 7-0 Tall now and has a chisled body frame now and he is way better athlete than he was in highschool. He is very chisled. He is the next Great Center. he may not be the most athletic. cuz DeSagana Diop holds that Reign.

I agree that Curry will be much better next year, but i thibk he's more sthletic that Diop now that Diop has had that foot surgery. Diop is still a bit bigger though.

he will be great for the Lakers?!??

where did this come from? oh right, just a pipe dream. I'll allow you to have that much.


if Diop becomes dependable with this foot, he will likely be a solid center in the NBA -- but honestly, i don't remember ever reading or hearing anything about him being particularly athletic. he's big. very big. he's still learning the NBA game, and his assett that will allow him to excel in the NBA is his size, not his athleticism.

Diop is Very Athletic

NBA Comparison: Bob Lanier

Strengths: Sagana Diop is a very athletic big man. he's close to 300 pounds and runs the floor like a small forward. he's very fast. coming from senegal, africa, he's only been playing competitive basketball for a few years so he figures to get a lot better. right now his best asset is his defense. he can hold opposing centers virtually scoreless with his smothering style of defense. he is a very good shot blocker, and can also help out and block other opposing players shots.

Weaknesses: he is not super polished offensively. he has soft touch around the basket but just hasn't developed the post moves to where they are automatic. there are very few centers in the nba game with his combination of strength, speed, and athleticism.



Amazingly agile and athletic for a 7 foot 310 pound center. Runs the floor very well. Still very raw offensively but the makings are there. Shows soft touch around the cup. Super strong, very good defender with great shotblocking instincts. Guarded Tyson Chandler twice last season and ate him up the first matchup, Chandler had a much better game the second time around but rarely scored over Diop. (Pronounced JOP).

Have you seen Diop play? He may run the floor very well for his size..but as far as getting off the ground..I don't think he can get higher than Eddy Curry...and are you really a Bulls fan?

1. Why does he keep saying he's chisled. Very chisled
2. There goes that Trenton pic again. Daydreams?

Diop is one of the worst players in the League (right behind Mark Madsen) I don't know why some are even comparing Diop to Curry, thats like comparing Chris Dudley to Kevin Garnett
