Thor | Iceland Dominos league


Tough and experienced player with an outstanding inside game. Solid shooter from mid-range, runs the floor extremely well. Kinu is undersized but his rebounding and post game is just spectacular - facing the basket or using spin moves he will score or draw a foul. Shoots with over 50% from the field and over 70% from free throw line. The only reason why Kinu is not playing at the very top level is a couple of inches but that makes him a great option for all other leagues.
