I actually agree to some degree with Dr. No's assessment of him being a bit "slow-footed". It's not an asinine statement. I've watched a few games with him in it, along with the videos posted here and he's got impressive post moves and footwork, but he hardly plays above the rim and pretty soft getting off the ground. He gets players off with his pump fakes, and knows how to use his size, but otherwise he doesnt have that much lift. He's got excellent mobility, so he's not slow-footed in that sense, but it's his gather and elevation that does take a bit slower than would be successful in the NBA.

Yes we can say he's young and has plenty of space to develop, and I do wish for his development, but as it stands now, we can't have tunnel vision thinking he's the next big thing without looking at where he needs to improve. It's a fair assessment and an area that he'll definitely need to improve greatly on if he's going to make it in the NBA.

Well then you have AT LEAST watched HOW Wang Zhelin played !!! It's ALREADY BETTER than our Dr. Moranus just made that conclusion by saying he is slow-footed and plays with both feet nailed to the floor just by looking at a photo where Wang Zhelin was double-teamed and trapped WITHOUT ACTUALLY EVER watched HOW he actually played !!! :roll: :roll: :roll:

SURE there are a few areas that Wang Zhelin needs to work to further improve his game.

But as of now, as Yao Ming himself has admitted, Wang Zhelin is ALREADY STRONGER in terms of skills, ball handling, low post moves and power than when Yao Ming was 18 years old.

Well looking around, Wang Zhelin is DEFINITELY the best Chinese prospect for NBA at the moment.

Yao Ming had previously some nice comments about him.

Big Yao said as a 18-year-old,
technique wise, Wang Zhelin is stronger than when he was 18 years old. Big Yao said at least Wang Zhelin can handle ball and hook-shot with both left and right hand, something that Yao Ming did not master until 3 to 4 years into NBA.

Yao Ming
said Wang Zhelin needs to pick up, develop and work on a mid-range jumper. He needs to seek for natural, steady and all-round development and improvement in his game.

Having watched his game for the past year or so,
personally think Wang Zhelin at least needs to work on the following areas:

  • He needs to develop stronger upper limbs, strength and force.
  • He needs to work on his one-on-one defense and help defense. He currently sux in defense.
  • He needs to work much harder on his free throws; his FT% is very unsteady, often hovers below 50%.

Well, let's see HOW Wang Zhelin fares tonight playing against a more experienced and taller 2.21M/7ft 3 Peter John Ramos and 2.16M/7ft 1 Wang Zheng, as well as the 6ft 8/2.03M Al Thorton of Zhejiang Guangsha Lions, then we might have a BETTER IDEA of WHERE Wang Zhelin stands in terms of playing against some proven NBA players.

The "slow-footed" Wang Zhelin playing with both feet nailed to the floor once again astounded the fans with an AWESOME display tonight, outplaying and dominating over Peter John Ramos and Wang Zheng to lead Fujian SBS Xunixin to beat the stronger Zhejiang Guangsha Lions 93 ~ 88.

Wang Zhelin scored his third 20/10 in 4 games, 25 points (12/19 FG% 1/2 FT%), 13 rebounds and 1 assist in 43 minutes of play.

Peter John Ramos scored 17 points, 7 rebounds and 6 turnovers in 25 minutes of play, while Wang Zheng scored only 2 points and 6 rebounds in 16 minutes of play.

3 other Fujian players were in double digit scoring; Their 2 expats Sundiata Gaines (14 points) and Will McDonald (13 points) combined for 27 points, while Zhou Qixin contributed 18 points.

Chinese Taipei's Lin Chih-Chieh was the top scorer for Zhejiang Guangsha Lions with 28 points (11/15 FG% 4/6 3-pointer% 2/2 FT%), 2 rebounds and 3 assists.

Al Thorton
scored 16 points (6/14 FG% 0/3 3-pointer% 4/4 FT%) and 9 rebounds, but got fouled out in later part of 4Q.

NAAAAAAAH, anyone that followed Yao Ming's career would have known Yao Ming was honest and telling the TRUTH. :roll: :roll: :roll:

  • When Yao Ming played as a rookie in CBA, he was rail thin, and often bumped onto the floor by other much stronger centres. Most of the points scored by Yao were layups or jumpers, and not too many dunks.
  • Besides, back in the late 90s, there was not as many expat interior players from NBA/Europe playing in CBA.
  • And Yao Ming was also telling the truth that he could not master hook shots by both hands when he was in CBA.
