I'm watching the Hornets game on NBA tv and noticing that Aminu has been mentioned every 15 seconds or so, dunking like crazy, and just all over the place. Noticed he's having a VERY nice box score going at the moment.

Anybody have this guy on your radar? I remember him playing for the clips and having some good lines, but never getting PT.

Picked him up as a speculative add. You never know.

This guy is beasting right now. He has always had potential, and has always put up elite defensive stats when given playing time. It looks like he is the starting SF and will get 34+ mins/g. What he is doing against the Spurs right now is pretty unbelievable. What do you guys project he will do this year?

There was always talk about his fantasy potential. Maybe this year he'll reach it?

I'm gonna give him one more game before considering a pick up

Same here picked him up for a speculative add. I dont see him having any competition at the SF spot so the minutes will be there.

He's played really well, today, but the fact remains he still can't shoot worth a lick. If he gets minutes, he should rack up some nice counting stats, with rebounds. But I don't have confidence that he'll be able to score this efficiently until he adds a jumpshot.

yeah, you always got that guy at the end of your bench who you can drop for a stat line like this. make the move and see what happens. with the sorriness of the hornets team, he should get a lot of run. what i like the most is the almost 37 mins played. that is huge.

Exactly. I was very confused as to what was going on in these forums when everyone was falling in love with Green and Crowder. Just didn't make any sense to me. Everything you said about Aminu is what I'm thinking as well. Here is potential combined with minutes; whereas Crowder has potential but will likely not get enough minutes this year, and Green, well Green is just not good.

I actually just dropped Green for him. I only picked Green up because Rotoworld was high on him....I should have learned my lesson nby now to not trust Rotoworld blindly.

How about you man up and trust your intuition and analysis? Rotoworld is not here to think for you

Darius Miller and Lance Thomas are the only other SFs on the roster, so i'd say.

"experts" do not exist.

get sunday ticket, think for yourself.

Very impressive. Had bust written all over him thus far though, so I'll need to wait and see more.

Hard to see him having a lot of value given that he doesn't shoot too many threes. Defensive stats tonight were nice, though.
