Majok Deng in the SA Premier League

Was checking ABL stats and noticed that Majok Deng is having a great season and for a strong team - 31.5 PPG, 11.8 RPG, great FT% and leading the comp in total blocks. Had a 47 point game against South the other week.

How's he typically scoring his points? Doesn't look to be overly reliant on shooting threes going by the stats.

re: Majok Deng in the SA Premier League

watched him play on Saturday night V North. He was outstanding. He is getting into the paint and scoring strongly on the defence. He is definitely scoring 3's though too.

He looks really good.

Dam this rare huge stats! 47 in a 40 minute format is big time these days too... hopefully he is unleashed this upcoming nbl season.

Huge numbers - and he isn't even leading the league in scoring!!!

Majok is scoring every which way - his mid range in dynamite, he hits a few 3s & he's tough getting to the rim. Expect a break out this year in NBL.

Drmic isn't doing too badly, either!!! Some serious talent in the PL this year. Some of the imports are worth the price of admission themselves.

re: Majok Deng in the SA Premier League

His shot distribution is very balanced: three pointers, mid-range pullups, post ups, drives, putbacks, transition, free throws... he's scoring from everywhere.

At PL-level he's a complete player because he has the length to get his shot off against just about anyone, and the skill to make them. While Forestville interchange 3-5 often, Deng is essentially playing a small forward role - at 6'10.

Hopefully over time this further translates to NBL-level.

Been saying this for ages on here, he's a 3 man. That was obvious even in juniors. Stretch 4 at most. He scored pretty effectively in NBL as well when given the opportunity.

Was a shame that when he went to NBA Summer League he was sitting on the bench pegged as a 5 man who needed to put on weight. Never got a chance.

I don't think he took in a lot of minutes in the nbl.

Amazed me that after his 47 point game, he didn't get a thread on Hoops. Start ABL topics, people!

Which other players are standouts this season? Who else is key for Forestville? I saw in the Messenger write-ups that they've been belting a few teams.

Are there any highlight of Eian Davis from South? Averaging 33 on great percentages & multiple 40 point games. Is he a chance at NBL?

^His game wouldn't translate to the NBL IMO, but he's obviously a very good PL player.

"Start ABL topics, people!"

I don't get it. Historically this site started out as an SA forum yet all the talk re: state leagues are about SBL on the west coast or SEABL on the east coast.

re: Majok Deng in the SA Premier League

One of the main reasons IMO that the 36ers struggled in the post season was that Joey Wright changed.
In the regular season he played Ferguson & Makok minutes off the bench which provided something different for the opposition.

Deng is long on D & can get up the floor & defend the Nbl guards with great pressure.
He causes turnovers inside & out.

Wright anchored them to the bench as soon as playoffs started & this made the 36ers one dimensional & older.
They relied on big minutes from Teys for example.

Watch out for this kid, Deng if they start believing in him

He is a gun

re: Majok Deng in the SA Premier League

Playmaker - why not? I haven't seen him so can't comment but his numbers stack up to Creeks from last year & he's an NBL starter.

Is there anyone in PL who would stack up in NBL?

Despite good numbers from Majok and a very capable support cast the Eagles went down to North on last weekend. If Starling keeps performing like he has should the 36ers look at him as a cheap import and free cash for a gun.
