Semih Erden is a pure center with the full array of skills to dominate the game inside the paint. He improved a lot in the previous EuroBasket and World Cup tournaments and now brings a wealth of experience to the court. Having difficulties settling with a club over the past couple of seasons, Erden moved back to where he has arguably experienced his best seasons, playing for Fenerbahce. His huge wingspan, doubled with his blocking ability, makes him an impenetrable wall for opponents. Relatively quick for a big man, he needs to show a little bit more focus to properly display his full talents. The only dilemma is the ups and downs that he has mentally suffered on the court. Once he truly finds his ‘zone', he becomes an unstoppable weapon.
