and obviously inaccurate ;) . just look at the guy. he needs to bulk up for sure, but he doesn't look like he weighs that.

edit: bbl website says 208cm, 95kg

6KG more than what I said..still a huge red flag cause..for some reason players don't bulk up until they reach the NBA..but I hope that Maccabi has the ability to bulk up players..not sure that they have

6 kilo muscle is 6 kilo muscle. But as i said, he needs to bulk up

and a reminder you haven't signed him ;) . It is a rumor about an offer

of course I'm just trying to think about the situation IF Maccabi would end up signing him
which is something I still don't understand cause I doubt that he'll play for Maccabi next year and won't go on a loan...and then he'll get picked in the draft a year later and eventually won't play even 1 game for Maccabi..weird

relax. he's projected at #60 of the draft of 2011, his last eligible year. And he could very well go on loan.

if he bulks up, probably not. but it doesn't mean he will immediately go to the nba. if indeed he goes to maccabi on a 4-year deal, chances are he stays for the full duration. and even if not, maccabi could get a nice sum as a buyout and make some profit.

He's 2.12m according to his Eurocamp measurment. The guy is very talented. IMO he could be even better than Vesely.



208 according to eurobasket

That's because they're doped up on the latest drugs imaginable :P

How else can you keep up with the pace of so many games just in the normal season, excluding play offs? :P

Eurocamp and draftexpress measurements list him at 2.12m and 101kg

These are actual measurements that were done just within the last 2 weeks. Notice the part where it says pre draft measurements.

http://www.draftexpr...n-Benzing-1377/

This is what he actually measured and weighed at in the Eurocamp. So he is around 2.12m and 101 kg currently (6-11 223 in the NBA way). Considering his age he would be around 108-109 kg once he filled out.

So he's a really big SF.

Maccabi's new pg, Torrance collapsed in a practice in the US, from what sources said he's skull has broken, and he can only breath with machines, he's condition isn't very stable.
To basketball he probably won't come back but let's all hope this guy will be fine.

What was he doing training in US? So what happens with his contract now? Will Maccabi get some insurance for this incident?
Respect and thanks for everything: Alvertis, Bodiroga, Jasikevicius, Radja, Wilkins, Vrankovic, Fotsis, Rebraca, Kattash, Gentile, Koch, Middleton, Kutluay, Rogers, Papadopoulos, Becirovic, Tomasevic, Siskauskas, Pekovic, Lakovic, Vujanic, Chatzivrettas, Maljkovic, Spanoulis and many more to follow in the near future.

He was training, probably to stay in a good shape.
According to what they say here in Israel, his contract says that in case of medical problem (not injuring when with the team I guess) his contract is cencelled, since both sides knew about possible problems cuz of his heart condition.

Does anybody know how Torrance is doing?
Is Maccabi still interested in Robin Benzing? Does anybody know if they will buy him, he is a great talent

Maccabi has made an offer to Macvan, does this mean that they aren't longer interessed in Luka Zoric?
I still think that Zoric would be a great get for Maccabi, he's a really good player

A chance to sign a player of the level of Macvan doesn't come very often so if it's possible to get him now they shouldn't even bother considering signing Zoric imo.

+1.
Despite Zoric is more fit to MTA, cause he is C, but if you can sign Macvan, U won't say "no".
