Just hope he can replicate what he can do here, Perth need some one that will get the crowd rocking. Bring on the hawks and 36er's

Geez he looks good from the video's. Alot of tip in dunks seems to crash the boards pretty hard. Nice to see a big man import again, something I think we really miss in this league now days.

Cool highlight film bro. If you don't get dunks in a game, how are you going to score? A film with all dunks does not excite me much at all.....Sorry guys.

Yeah hard to get too excited by a selective clip like that, but I don't think the Cats need him to be a star anyway. Just play a solid defensive role on opposition bigs while Matty is out, hopefully get himself a few cheapies around the basket at the other end, and generally prevent Wagstaff & Redhage from needing to play too many minutes.
Saw it mentioned somewhere that he is a little foul-prone. Hopefully not too much or that's going to be a problem in this league.

anybody with hops and NBA experience is a huge plus for our league right now. We are severely lacking high fliers in the league these days.

The Wildcats have seemed conservative with their second import spot for the past few seasons and I think the Knight injury is probably worse than expected or that they will keep dunigan for the remainder of the season, otherwise why would someone come out for a month (including being away from family for Christmas).

What's their points situation upon the return of Knight? Is there a way they can keep him? Trueman?
