 NBA Role: athletic pivot • Star UnderDOG

Clint Capela is a future star?; a hyperactive rebounder and shot-blocker on the inside, Capela actually wants to play defense, which is a pretty big deal in Houston; has every tool to become an upper-echelon pivot some day – very good as a roll man: great hands, knows how to release shots high before a defender converges; mainly a catch & finish guy right now, with a couple solid hooks on the block – Clint’s working to secure a real signature move; very poor foul shooter, legitimate “hack-a” candidate; potential All-Star? – Mike D’Antoni needs a rim protector – Capela’s young, plays hard & is rapidly improving w/ additional game experience; HOU’s undisputed X-Factor

Signature Slam: two-handed putback
