That's why I thought Robin Lopez is a good comp. The lesser of the Lopez brothers.Ironically, I think his lack of vertical helps him as a shot blocker. He's long enough to block shots while on the ground. It's similar to Brook Lopez. No one can fake him out because he hardly leaves the ground to begin with. What he's lacking is the brute strength that Lopez has, but he's very young and will get stronger with time.
Agreed, people seem to really be underestimating his athletic abilities. It’s not all about hops people! Better hands than Rudy, that’s safe to say.I'm impressed with the fact he isn't fouling. With how quickly KO and Vando can get in foul trouble having Kessler stay on the floor really helps.
