    D-League All-Star Candidates: Centers

    D-League All-Star Candidates: Centers

    by Matthew Brennan, D-League.com

    The inaugural Gillette D-League All-Star game takes place at NBA Jam Session on February 17, at 2 p.m. PT. Since there are a lot fewer centers to choose from than guards and forwards, there are only a few from each division who can be considered strong candidates. The All-Star starters will be announced on Tuesday, February 6th.


    Eastern Division

    Luke Schenscher, Fort Worth Flyers

    Schenscher has started every game for the Flyers this season after finishing up 2006-07 as a member of the Chicago Bulls. The 7-1 Australian is having a solid season with 10.0 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 1.0 blocks per game. He is one of only two players who have played in all 23 games for Fort Worth this season, playing a major role in their league-best 16-7 record.

    Rick Rickert
    Colorado 14ers

    Jared Reiner, Sioux Falls Skyforce

    Reiner has been a mainstay in the post for the Skyforce, averaging 12.5 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 1.0 blocks. The 6-11 center from Iowa's rebounding average places him fourth overall in the D-League. He is the only member of the Skyforce to start all 26 of their games this season, leading Sioux Falls to a solid 15-11 record. Like most of the D-League's center candidates, Reiner has NBA experience as a former member of the Chicago Bulls.


    Western Division

    Peter John Ramos, Idaho Stampede

    The D-League's biggest player at 7-3, 287 lbs., Ramos has been a presence for the Stampede this season as they have surged to the top of the Western Division standings. The former Washington Wizard has contributed on both ends of the court, ranking fourth in the D-League with 1.4 blocks while also scoring 13.8 points (.545 shooting) and 6.6 rebounds. He has also been very durable for a big man, starting all 25 games for Idaho this season.


    Rick Rickert, Colorado 14ers

    Rickert is one of the league's top sixth men, scoring 12.4 points with 6.4 rebounds off the bench for the 14ers. He is also an outstanding shooter, connecting at .513 (115-224) from the field and .848 (78-92) from the free-throw line. Rickert has only started five games this season, but his solid numbers compared to other Western Division centers should give him a shot to start in Las Vegas.

    In Response to Re: D-League All-Star Candidates: Centers:
    In Response to Re: D-League All-Star Candidates: Centers : FIBA is a different league. There are things you can do in FIBA that you can't do in the NBA. For example, Ramos can stay in the paint guarding no one in particular and he will not be called for a defensive 3-second violation. The FIBA ball, Molten, is also lighter than the Spalding ball the NBA uses. There are a lot of great FIBA players that never made it to the NBA. Just because you're a FIBA player it doesn't automatically make you an NBA player.  Peter John Ramos was drafted in the NBA in 2004. It's 2012 now and he still hasn't stuck with any NBA team.  Haddadi is a great FIBA player, considered the best Center in Asia. But in the NBA he's just 3rd string. So if Peter John Ramos is just decent in FIBA, that means he will just sit on the bench the whole game if he's in the NBA.

    So your theory is that if you are a good basketball player you should be in the NBA?? Washington never gave Ramos a legitime shot to prove himself. This is happening every day in the nba. That's why Washington is a losing team because management doesn't had the vision to develop young players..Did Pitino had the vision with Billups or Ainge with Gerald Green??

    In Response to Re: D-League All-Star Candidates: Centers : It's not ony Washington, from 2004 to 2012 there were other teams that could have given him a shot. Come on, it's been 8 years and no other NBA team was willing to give him a shot.  Ramos couldn't even stick with the NBDL. I mean if you can't stick with an NBDL team then how do you expect to make it to the NBA? Rick Pitino destroyed the future of the Celtics. So Pitino is worst judge of talent in Celtic history. How many teams released Gerald Green? He's good on offense but clueless on D. The Lakers signed him before the season started and just released him when the started. If you're saying the Celts were wrong about Gerald Green then you're the one who's wrong.

    Fierce you're throwing punches with no data..I been tracking Ramos career since before he was drafted by the Wizards because as  you should know by now I' from PR. The first mistake on Ramos career wasn't attending to college so that means he wasn't even near his potential when the Wiz drafted him so basically he was a proyect. After he got stints in the Dleague with a lot of success. When he got the call to represent PR or his agent founded him a better contract overseas he left the Dleague..That's why you don't knowa thing about the basketball world!! DID YOU KNOW THAT A PUERTORRICAN NAMED FUFI SANTORI WAS THE CREATOR OF THE 3PT LINE IN BASKETBALL??

    Dunno if this is about promoting Puerto Rico or Peter John Ramos, but it's hard to believe that 30 NBA teams are not seeing what you're seeing. Maybe Ramos only looks good in the eyes of a Puerto Rican.

    Fufi Santori didn't invent the 3pt line. It was a Puerto Rican named Eddie Rios Mellado.

    Puerto Rican teacher Eddie Ríos Mellado is known as the inventor of basketball’s three-point line – it is time that the rest of the world knows it.

    Why attack franquazi ?  He is entitled to his opinion just as you are. There is no need for this.  You are compelled to argue with people to show your "basketball knowledge".   Chill out, other people have opinions also.

    In Response to Re: D-League All-Star Candidates: Centers : There's nothing wrong with an opinion. But saying a guy named Fufu or Fufi invented the 3pt line is a false statement! franquazi was the one who attacked me. He said I know nothing about basketball. Read his posts.

    Does anyone really care who invented the 3 pt line?  You may not know it but when you tell someone they don't know what they are talking about,  that is kind of insulting.

    Jose Santori Coll (born 1932 in Santurce, San Juan, Puerto Rico), better known as Fufi Santori, is a well known former BSN basketball player, coach and television sportscaster. He was also a physical education, basketball and tennis instructor at the University of Puerto Rico at Mayagüez for close to thirty years. Fufi Santori is of obvious Corsican-Puerto Rican descent which is common and well known on the island.

    [edit] Biography

    Fufi Santori, his brother Tito and the rest of his family moved to San Juan at an early age. He grew up with pro-independence political ideas; his grand father Cayetano Coll y Cuchí was Speaker of the House of Representatives and his grand uncle José Coll y Cuchí was the founder of Puerto Rican Nationalist Party. An avid sports fan, Santori was also a member of the Puertorrican Olympic Basketball Team that participated ein the 1960 Olympiad in Rome. He was a tennis player and coach. While still a teenager, in 1944, Santori and his brother Tito boarded what was Puerto Rico's only passenger train to attend a Boy Scouts Rally in Hatillo, Puerto Rico. [1].

    After a notable high school basketball career, Santori joined the BSN's Capitanes de Arecibo, where he gained fame across Puerto Rico as one of the better known professional basketball players of the 1950s and 1960s. He represented Puerto Rico in various olympics and was one of the players that helped Arecibo to become the only team to go undefeated the entire season when the Capitanes won the 1959 BSN national title. He also played for the Rio Piedras squad, winning two scoring titles there, in 1963 and 1968. Santori was later chosen as the 30th best player in Puerto Rican basketball history by a BSN voting panel. I MISSED THE CORRECT PUERTORRICAN INVENTOR..
