Tyndale trying out with the Bucks

Tyndale is having a run with the Bucks...

I may have to give Hammonds an email to see if I can jag an invite to tryouts.

Skud you're off your head, he wont be making the NBA period. Guys go out to training camps all the time. And not much comes of it.

The Bucks are going to be REALLY bad this year if the best they can attract to training camp is Tyndale. They were already going to be poor, but gee, I reckon they are going to really suck. All they have is Bogut and the pie thrower.

NBL-NBA doesnt really have a huge correlation.

There are NBA players who wouldnt be as good in the NBL as they are in the NBL because the style of games is so much different.

Same as Europe-NBA.

Definitely true. We've had Orien, Melzer, etc come out from NBA or fringe-NBA and not dazzle in the NBL.

Agree with you Paul and Isaac. If you are not in that elite echelon of players that NBA teams build around, then you are more likely to stick in the NBA if you are an excellent role player who does one or two things well, rather than a guy who does everything, but at a level a couple of notches lower than the elites.

Eg, Julius Hodge, in the NBL he is an elite athlete who can dominate with his ability to get to the basket. However, in the NBA he is not good enough to be that dominant scoring slasher, but also is not a good enough defender or outside shooter to land a spot as a role player.

On the flip side, Scalabrine would be next to useless as an import in the NBL, but showed last year that he can be a very effective role player for Boston, just playing solid D and making the open three reliably.
