   Sham's unnecessarily great big draft board: Power forwards

The same is true of men as it is of women - nothing wrong with a little meat on the bones.

Bangaly Fofana - Fofana is so thin that, if you turn him sideways, he doesn't actually exist. The French big man of African decent is decently athletic, but carries virtually no girth, and is also incredibly raw. He began to get the first decent minutes of his career last season, averaging 10.5 minutes per game in 21 French league contests for ASVEL, returning averages of 3.0 points, 2.8 rebounds and 0.8 blocks per game. He has great shot blocking potential because of his height, long arms and decent mobility. Unfortunately, Fofana is also extremely raw. He can't dribble, post, create, shoot, hit a foul shot, defend the perimeter without fouling, nor defend the interior without fouling. He has Boniface N'Dong potential, but he doesn't have any more potential than, say, Chris Johnson. And having joined basketball so late, Fofana is 22 years old and still a complete project. Any selection of Bangaly Fofana is the ultimate draft-and-stash, and must not be considered with the same level of hype as the Malick Badiane draft-and-stash once was.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
