Christien
Charles
Mono Vampire Bangkok (TBL) signed experienced 37-year old American power forward Christien Charles (216-102kg-81, college: Villanova). He played last season at Jobstreet.com Singapore Slingers in Singapore ASEAN League. In 15 games he had very impressive stats: 22.4ppg, 16.1rpg, 3.0apg, 1.2spg and 2.9bpg. Great season as he was named to Asia-Basket.com All-ASEAN League Honorable Mention.
The list of the past achievements is quite long as among others Charles' team made it to the ASEAN League Semifinals in 2013, 2016 and 2017. He was also voted Asia-Basket.com All-ASEAN League Player of the Year and Asia-Basket.com All-ASEAN League 1st Team back in 2014.
Charles is quite experienced player. He has played also professionally in Iran (Ararat), Lebanon, Philippines (Blackwater Elite), Saudi Arabia (Al Ahli Jeddah), Serbia, Syria (Al Jalaa and Al Jaish), Thailand (Thailand Slammers and Hitech), ABA (Chicago Steam) and Vietnam (Saigon Heat).
Charles is close to retirement age as a player. It's very possible he may end his playing career at Mono Vampire.
Charles attended Villanova University until 2006 and it will be his 13th (hopefully lucky) (!!!) season as a professional player.
He could be described: Christien is a true 7 footer who has tremendously improved his game since he finished college due to an outstanding work ethic. As a reserve on the nationally ranked Villanova team, Christien had the opportunity to be trained by some of the best coaches in the country. He has developed into a very good player who plays with a lot of energy and heart. Very active big man that can run the floor extremely well. Fundamentally sound. Rebounds, passes well, scores and blocks shots. If left open, he can also knock down the 15 foot jump shot with consistency. Slender build. Must improve strength to reach full potential. Once rated as a top 5 center in the country behind such notable current NBA centers Tyson Chandler & Eddie Curry. Made Chicago Bulls summer league squad that featured Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah & Tyrus Thomas. Solid overseas resume that includes back to back championships with two different teams. Coachable, unselfish team player that has been groomed by the likes of Jay Wright & legendary big man coach Pete Newell. Christien would be a valuable asset to any team looking to add some size & skill.
