In between the news about lockout (I hoped both sides would reach the agreement, now I have nothing to bet on), here's some info about Lawal. He has already established himself as a powerful dunker (this is how he scores points mostly) and rebounder (the best in the league so far - 11.7 RPG). That tells you he's kind of raw because he has little to offer when it comes to playing one on one and when it comes to defense he doesn't stand out especially (except rebounding of course). The good part is that he's making a progress - his defense is improving but yet he still has to work on it and he started hitting some jump shots (not much but before he wasn't even attempting jump shots). Oh and he worked really well on his free throws. As usual, his team has played two games this week.
Rebounds: 12 (3 offense; 9 defense)
Rebounds: 11 (4 offense; 7 defense)
His stats after 9 games:
16.8 points per game (FG - 64%; FT - 59 %) - (5th in league)
11.7 rebounds per game (1st in league)
0.7 assists per game (94th in league)
3.0 fouls per game
5.1 fouled per game
1.4 turnovers per game
0.7 steals per game (59 th in league)
1.6 blocks per game (2nd in league)
+ 23.7 efficiency per game (1st in league)
7 times double-double (today was his 6th in a row)
Soon Gani Lawal might start playing on his nominal position(PF) because there is a rumor that his team is going to sign Jordan Williams, a center drafted by Nets this year.
