Best Game: Feb. 24 vs. LA Lakers– Game Line: 21pts 8rebs 3asts
This Frenchmen had an overall tough season. Whenever he was put onto the court, I felt that he just didn’t mesh well with the rest of the team. He has struggled with several injuries and ended the season with an injury. He has a high potential, with lots of talent yet to be seen, however none of this potential manifested itself during the season. To put it simple, the coaches themselves didn’t think this kid was ready to be a consistent contributor; Gelabele only averaged 15 minutes per game. It is hard to put a label on him, one thing that I can draw from his performances this year, is his high-energy style of play energizes the Sonics offensively, and more importantly defensively.
