Dain Dainja is a special talent. He is a big that can take his defender off the dribble with his ball-handling and finish at the rim with a dunk or his soft touch. If given time he has no problem shooting the perimeter jumper but it isn?t very consistent. His strength and skill in the low post make him a tough cover. His hands and feet are incredibly soft and light for a kid his size. In PnR actions, he can pop out, slip, but has a bit of hesitation of rolling. Dianja is a big that brings value to a team right away.
Nike EYBL - Emerson, GA - 4/27/2019
Big body post that has a soft touch around the rim, has good hands and feet on the block. He plays with a high motor and likes to bang on the interior. He is very skilled with the ball in his hands (ball handling) to create a little from the mid-post and the perimeter. He is also a good passer from the post and elbow area. He is not very quick laterally but makes up for it by playing the angles.

Big that likes to do his damage on the interior, posting up on the right and left block. Nice touch from about 15ft and in.
