I like how physical he is. If he can maintain a mean & ugly attitude at the NBA level and play the enforcer role (kinda like Oakley) then that's all we would need from him.
Let him grow a beard and wear #34 and be the White Oakley
He kinda has a lil Bill Lambaier demeanor to em.. Like he just doesn't give a f*ck about who gets in his way..
FYI - Every player is a little shorter without shoes. Kemba is about 5' 11", Brooks is about 6'3", Faried is about 6'6", Tyler is about 6'9"... see where i'm going?
Tyler wasn't even in the NCAAs and constantly played against C level players overseas. That's who you want for 2 more inches in height?
Some info from draft express:
Working extensively with former San Antonio Spurs head coach and notable big man developer, Bob Hill, Tyler's skill level has improved from his high school days, and his 52% shooting in Japan is far better than the 44% he mustered in Israel. Unfortunately, Tyler's feel for utilizing the skills he has developed remains limited. His recognition of where to go with the ball in one-on-one situations is questionable, and despite the size advantage he had in Japan, he did not make too many strong, decisive moves to the rim or elevate well to finish in a crowd. Only compounding the challenges he faced in his learning process this season, he turned the ball over at a frustratingly high rate with his back to the basket.

Luc Longley wants to know how his ass taste, along with Bill Walton, Sabonis, Ilgauskas, Big Country Bryant Reeves, Pryzbilla, Kristic, Divac etc.
And dont say "Some of them are Europeans they dont count", well White is a Race, European is your citizenship, and Lithuanian for instance is an ethnicity. So you saying you dont like White Centers as all means you dont like all of the above, and you my friend are a racist.

I Miss You Pat.
Name one white center that's been athletic and flashy?
From Bill Walton to Shawn Bradley, they're just big bodies who can't get off the ground.
David Lee on the other hand or Jason Williams are blacker than most black guys
I didn't say they're not good people or I don't like them cause they're white?!
All I said was white centers suck. That's my oppinion, can't see the racism there.
I don't like spanish soccer players, cause they're fogazzi. Also racist? Don't think so.
