Tahirou Sani
Birthdate: 11/2/85
NBA Position: SF/PF
Ht: 6-8
Wt: 205
Hometown: Bamako, Mali
Int Team: Gravelines


NBA Comparison: Shareef Abdur-Rahim


Strengths: An amazing athlete with an incredible vertical leap. He's a strong one on one player with a very quick first step. He is able to play both forward positions like Shareef. His ball handling is excellent. He is very smooth. He knows how to post players because he used to play strictly on the inside on the U16 level.

Weakness: His biggest weakness right now is his outside shot. He needs it to become a complete offensive player. He is shooting every day to make the adjustment. He is also very young and needs to mature a little but that's typical for this age.

Notes: Currently playing junior league basketball in France. Has played in tournaments and held his own and then some against the likes of Maciej Lampe, Luol Deng, and Carmelo Anthony. Anthony was the only one who played Tahirou evenly, and Carmelo has some age on him. In a dunk contest, he jumped over 7 people!! Last year when he came from Mali to France he had a 100 pt 50 reb game in the French junior league. Awesome no matter who you're playing against. Many questioned his true age, but someone confirmed that he is in fact born in 1985, although he has a body of a 20 year old. He's been featured in Slam magazine

Yeah, but they were french, so it was easier because they were running away.

Should have made it harder cause they was running AWAY. If they was running at you you would just jump straight up. Running away, made it a challenge. He could probably jump over 10-12 americans as they stay still and fight. i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif
