    Yeah, it's a bit too generic of a statement. And I agree, it's a highly-relative comparison. Being more athletic is also not always necessarily a positive. Domas' footwork and control is very polished. Athletic means nothing if you can't direct into something productive. I haven't seen anyone's athelticism be too much for him, in the long run. A systematic, smooth, relentless approach like Domas's wins out in the end. Some guys out-athlete themselves into a bad defending position when they face Domas.

    I agree. Also, I think that athleticism is a very wide term. A lot of things go into it. Sabonis can't jump very high and isn't freakishly fast in transition, but he moves well laterally and is fluid/nimble in his moves. Adding the fact that he has a very good footwork and an NBA ready body makes him a legit NBA level athlete, in my opinion.

    Yea many were in denial that Domas would come back. Two months ago, I had was sure he would leave for the draft and after his NCAA performance, that didn't really leave any doubts
