Alexis Ajinca has beefed up and greatly improved in the D-League. The Bobcats game program lists him at 220 pounds. The Red Claw TV broadcast lists him at 255. Adding 35 pounds shows. He no longer looks fragile. His pencil thin frame is now more solid and muscular. Ajinca is grabbing the rebounds (7.5 reb/game) and playing good defense (3 blocks/game).
Take a look at the game logs. http://www.nba.com/dleague/playerfile/gamelogs.jsp?player=alexis_ajinca
Ajinca has scored 25, 16, 27, and 26 in his last 4 games. He blocks multiple shots almost every game. On January 22, he recorded a triple double with 10 blocks, 13 rebounds, and 26 points.
Ajinca still needs to work on two areas. He has a handful of turnovers every game and has collected 4 or more personal fouls in most of the games he has played.
Sure the competition is D-League, but it is great to see Ajinca developing into a good player.
When will Alexis Ajinca be able to play meaningful minutes for the Bobcats?
