Probably once he gains some muscle will he probably slow down, still impressive for any 7 footer to have his mobility from that far out.

Without a doubt one of the most versatile 7 footers I have ever seen at that stage.  Totally agree with the previous comment about him being a point guard in a Centers body haha.  Dude NEEDS to gain some weight though, he looks super fragile it's scary.

This is the type of guy that I'd make in 2k back when my player was more simple.

he's promising, once he does some strength training and keeps up with it and continues to improve his skills he'll be one heck of a player

Yep, I've seen this kid throwing up floaters on people...

All I could think is... that's just freaking unfair... WHAT THE [expletive] DO YOU NEED A FLOATER FOR!!?!?!?!

His game reminds me a bit of Garnett.

If hes moving that fluid right now, I'm scared of what he'll do once he gets to college.

2001 Scouting Report:

Strengths: Versatile player has the ability to shoot the ball inside and out ... Super athletic runs the floor, jumps out the gym, and has very good quickness ... Good rebounder due in part to his quick leaping ability and long wingspan ... Can handle the basketball very well like a guard and can even lead the fast break ... Good passer recognizes double teams well and makes quick adjustments ... Very good shot-blocker can cover a lot of area ... Can make the 17 foot jumper with some consistency and has even shown the ability to shot off the dribble ... Has a nice soft touch around the basket ... Unlike most young players Brown understands what he can and can't do ...

Best basketball he ever played was with a player like Kobe and a Coach like Phil that also understood what he could and could not do.   

I remember back in 05-06 from about the middle of march to the end of April. Kwame was BEASTING and I thought he'd finally found his nitch, especially when we won our last 5 games and he was putting up some real impressive numbers.  

But as I remember it, a story came out about a few games into the playoffs of some girl claiming he sexually harassed her, the story never went anywhere but that story seemed to screw with him mentally from that point onward.    For a guy that's averaged 1/3 for his entire career to come here and play like that next to Kobe and Phil really does show how Kobe DID in fact have the ability to make his teammates better as a lot of Kwame's offense was because of Kobe finding him. But ultimately he was a bust that you wish had gone to college. 

But that's neither here nor there anymore.

Maker reminds me more of KG than Kwame and fortunately he'll have to go to college.

Very fluid for a big man. Also has the starting of a jumper. Kid is super young as a sophomore if he continues to grow he can really become something special.


All I want for Christmas is a Laker girl :D
