DMC is the 2nd best center in the league right now. He still has a lot to work on, but he is already the best rebounder, his defense is solid, he is amazing at getting Offensive fouls on his opponents, he has excellent hands and good time at disrupting passing lanes, he is also very capable at passing.
I'd still like to see him under the basket on offense more, but his mid range jumpshot is also fairly solid. I'd like to see him improve his shot selection at times, work on a hook shot, get a bit more patient with his offense in the post. But the only thing that stops him are illnesses and fouls so far this season.
Just look at the list of centers in the West. The only center I think you can make a decent arguement for being better is Bynum. DMC is hands down better than the rest. Looking at the entire NBA the only other guy that comes to mind is Howard of course. Talk about a bright future ahead of DMC. The best part is just look how much he worked in the off-season. Now that Westphal is out of the way and it looks as though Smart and DMC have a good working relationship, I can't wait to see how good this guy gets!
Now here comes the delima for the Kings. Do they give their 5 year deal to Tyreke or DMC? They only can give one. Hopefully both players stay of course, but it will be interesting to see what they do.
