Chris Kaman
Notes: MAC Player of the Year, Honorable Mention All-American, MAC Tournament MVP
The Skinny:

Kaman appeared ready to become one of the top players in the Mid-American Conference as a junior, and exceeded those expectations as he was arguably the nation’s top big man. The book on him is that he’s very mobile for his size and he’s very efficient when he gets the ball (shot over 62% from the field as a junior). He has the tools to be a good rebounder and shot-blocker as well. The caveat to it all is that he did it all against mid-major competition, though he did score 25 points and haul down 10 rebounds against Duke in the NCAA Tournament.

Kaman projects to go in the middle of the lottery.

6/2/03 – Jed Tai – Projecting the Lottery
Although the Clippers’ draft “success” has been spotty in recent years (two power forwards last year?) you’d think this year they could get it right. Michael Olowokandi is a free agent and you know Clippers management isn’t going to give him a big contract. Kaman’s stock is continually rising and don’t you dare compare him to Todd MacCulloch or Bryant Reeves.
