Baby Shaq?

Baby Shaq?

Postby Shaq Fan on Sun Aug 24, 2003 6:09 pm

I have seen a story about a 17year old going on 18 in 3 weeks, European basketball player. His name is Roneldi Sterling. He is 7' tall. He weighs in at 325 lbs. He has won numerous awards for playing basketball. It stated that most of his weight is muscle. He is considering going to college for maybe a yr. or two, then go to the NBA. But, many people icluding his uncle who he has lived with since he was 3(his parents died in a tragic car accident) wants him to go directly to the National Basketball Asscoiation. His dream always was to an NBA superstar, but right now he does not know what he plans on doing in the future. In a European league he won the leagues top award.

Last years stats(a game)

27.6 pts.
12.1 rebs.
5.3 [Swearing is not permitted at Clublakers. You must edit this post prior to submitting.].
9.7 blk.

And he shot 58% from the field.

I say go to college first then come to the NBA, to follow you dream.

I'm sorry, but they also said that Sofoklis Schotsianitis had potential as being the next "Baby Shaq." He got drafted by the Clippers with the 34th or 35th pick if you recall. He looks like a sore loser.

The next BS would probably be Eddy Curry.

At this point, even if that dude's stats are good, like scoring, rebounds and assists, I don't believe in baby Shaqs. They never live up to expectations. :man10:

Eddy Curry is gonna be the [Swearing is not permitted at Clublakers. You must edit this post prior to submitting.] in a couple of years, but he still won't be as good as Shaq...

Chandler is gonna be good because he's very athletic for his size and can even play SF. He's gonna be a monster in the paint and he's still very young right now.

Curry on the other hand needs to improve his game a little. He's got to condition himself better. However, I think he'll develop into a solid player-- but not a Shaq-level player. He's still young and has time for improvement though.

Time will tell how they will develop.

Slava laughed at the suggestion his skills might be affected by the down time. "Are you kidding?" he said. "Basketball is like ball. It's all a circle."

the only way there will be a true "baby shaq" in the NBA is if Shaq has a kid that decides to play in the NBA
