NBA D-League Showcase, Day One
January 15, 2008
Lang had an efficient game against an undersized Bakersfield team. Bakersfield played without a center and used 6’7” Anthony Wilkins and 6’8” George Williams to guard Lang. In 19 minutes, Lang had 19 points on 8-for-12 shooting, and 4 rebounds. Lang gets most of his points down low - he likes getting the ball with his back to the basket in the low post, and can go either right with a power move or left for the short hook shot. He has trouble getting off the ground, but uses his length to shoot over the smaller defenders. He has a nice soft touch on his short shots, but had trouble at the free throw line shooting 3-for-6 at the line, despite being a 76% free-throw shooter on the season. Defensively Lang should be more of a factor. He only had 3 rebounds and should have had more with his height advantage. Conditioning is the main thing holding Lang back at this point. He’s 30-40 pounds overweight, and therefore looks nowhere near ready to be considered a candidate to return to the NBA or be able to play high level overseas basketball until he decides to commit himself to being a pro.
