Denzel Bowles with a smack in the face. His defense really hurt him. Ed Nixon also belongs on the Defensive team.

I'm sure not playing in the first half of the season was also a consideration.

Who cares, he abused everyone.
 
This is true. He made Sanders look like a JV player when they matched up. He's unstoppable offensively and the best low-post scorer in the league bar none. Too bad he was a sieve on defense. I'm sure Brady will use that as motivation for Bowles to commit to the defensive end next year. If he does, the kid has a real shot at the NBA.
 
i feel like they got everything right. i am not saying Larry Sanders does not deserve Defensive Player of The Year, but i feel like he got it because of his name more so than his actual defensive play
 
Janning on the 1st team? He's not one of the 5 best players in the league this season, in my opinion. Joey or Bowles would both be more deserving of that spot, for me.

I think I might agree with that. Larry's defense was a lot softer than it was last year. He probably won it more on reputation than anything else. Still congrats to him and he definitely deserved his first-team honors given his numbers. He'll get to go for Player of the Year next year if returns. So far his career has been more memorable than Gerald Lee's already. He'll have one more year to build on that, and it will likely be like the Eric Maynor-Drew Williamson comparisons of old if he does stay back. 8-)

He already has as many 1st-team All-CAA selections (2) in 3 years as Lee did in 4. He is the reigning 2-time Defensive Player of the Year in addition to this. He has a CAA championship (last season), something Lee has never had. If ODU were to win it all this year (which we know won't happen), they'll still be tied in that department with Sanders having one more shot at a 2nd championship as well as a 3rd-first team selection, possible POY honors (something Lee never did) and being a NBA first-round draft pick (something Lee will never be). :lol:

All in all a good showing. 8-)
 
If he improves on defense, I see no reason why he couldn't. He made Larry look like a child. He has NBA size, soft hands, and good low post moves. A legit 6'10 PF capable of banging down low. He's a pretty refined scorer. He just can't play defense to save his life. If he changes that (which is half of the game, so not a small thing at all), he can and should get NBA looks. Maybe not lottery/first round looks, but certainly as a 2nd-round flyer.

D-League at best.

Ok if he's D-League at best, even if he gets better at his Defense, and he made Larry look like a child as DB says, then what about Larry? Just curious

Larry needs to stay one more year. That's what I say. Sure Denzel can go to the NBA, but i could also win $133,000,000 tomorrow in the lottery. Doesn't mean its going to happen. But he definitely has the offensive game and size to survive.
 
Larry's being drafted off of upside and potential, not for what he's doing right now as a player. They are looking at physical attributes such as his wingspan, shot-blocking and rebounding abilities, his ability to run the floor well, as well as his impressive progression from year-to-year over the short time he's been playing basketball. In short, potential is the keyword with Larry.

The NBA draft is all about projecting where a player could ultimately be in 5 years with a franchise. Larry has tools that are downright scary if they are put together and this has several scouts ready to draft him for their teams right now. Doesn't mean he's ready to do anything in the NBA right now. He'll likely sit for a few years before getting any burn.

Case in point: Eric Maynor was far more 'polished' and 'NBA-ready' than Larry is, and he's getting backup minutes in Oklahoma City. Larry's upside is enormous but he will need time to get into a regular playing rotation in the league.
