To be a "special NBA player", I guess I expect more than what I thought Fizer would ever be able to give. I sure wish we had him on Cyclone roster this year!!!
I think Fizer had a lack of length by NBA PF standards. Brand has a much longer wingspan than Fizer to help compensate for being a shorter PF. I agree that the torn ACL hurt Fizer's ability to play in the NBA, as he was doing pretty well just before that even w/ the rebounding. Often his FG% was too low for the # of shots he'd put up. His lack of length, steakiness and some poor decision making contributed to the low FG%. He also never established himself as a good defender or shot blocker ala Brand .
