But the hair is all wrong:

Artis Gilmore: Career Mixtape HD - YouTube

 

I remember when I was maybe a seventh grader waiting outside the Kentucky Colonels locker room for my uncle Louie to come out and Artis came strolling out. Walked by me and I was just in awe, his thighs were bigger than his waist. He was HUGE!

Love those so much. You could do a pretty decent thread on the great ‘fros of the day. Darnell Hillman’s was a work of art. Also loved Dwight Lamar’s, my original favorite Pacer. The 1st of the truly remorseless gunners.

Couple of things to add 2) He’s still so young that there is a lot of projection here, but I wouldn’t be so sure that he’ll become a good pick and roll defender. He struggles to move laterally and really struggles to change direction. I saw 3 Chaminade games last year and he was in foul trouble in all of them. 


I figured there had to be some downside quality because that video is so good and complete that it screams 5* McD AA.

Yeah, he has some physical maturing to do. When he plays from a point of balance he’s really good. But there’s some calf on skates going on when he’s scrambling.  And he also appears to still be growing. He’s now listed 6’10” pretty much everywhere. The last game I saw him was in January and I thought he was probably a full 6’8”.

Loved that guy. He was also the first player I ever heard referred to as “a flick.”

When the kid talks about wanting to be coached hard, I’m guessing that’s true. His current coach, Frank Bennett, is VERY demanding. Also, very good.
