Its true, but I still say he's played well this year in the limited and totally inconsistent minutes he's been given. I'm honestly sad to see him go, if the trade happens. And I was not a fan of his at all before he got to the Clippers. I think he's done enough this year to wind up somewhere else in the league if whatever team the Clippers trade him to ends up releasing him.

Personally, I'm holding off judgment until he gets the keys to the team. He's in a really bad situation

my man

d'lo had the highest star potential in the draft, and also the highest bust potential

If you're gonna say the Lakers made a "mistake" that "mistake" was not drafting Porzingis.


Okafor won't be half the player Porzingis will be. Glorified Al Jefferson.

So Jennings and Ersan are going back to their old coach.... Okay

I mean let's all be freaking serious, this star potential model isn't this grand, glorified, almighty algorithm.

I've said it before and I'll say it again...

My man D'lo is Andre Miller 2.0 (aka with a jumper)

Yea, I don't think Doc gave him a real chance at succeeding in LA. I would still be in favor of Memphis picking up if Orlando waives him.

I feel like I've said this every season during Doc's tenure about at least once guy he picked up in the offseason in trade or as a FA. frown.gifmean.gif

What's everyone's opinions on Brook Lopez, Al Jefferson and Greg Monroe? Because that's Okafor's career path is headed towards.

I guess I'm in the minority because I don't mind guys like Oak. I understand who he is and who he is not. All it takes is one of those type guys to win a title and everyone will be looking for the next scoring machine back to the basket big. Let those bigs cook

None of them dudes is ever going to be the main component of a title team

Granted Jah is still super young so I'm not limiting his potential to those guys just yet

Once they selected Russell, it should've signaled they were in it for the long-term instead of the short-term with Okafor.

They've put a bad environment around him, but he's been fine all things considered.

How is it "backfiring"? laugh.gif

He's playing just fine for a teenager in a terrible position. It's unfair to the kid to judge him until Byron and Kobe are gone.

You can say the same about Marc gasol and cousins.

Don't think you can, Jah ain't gonna pan out like them IMO

He's not going to be the defensive player gasol is and he isn't going to be the physical force that cousins is, not to mention his ability to shoot from 3

I think it's higher than Chauncey but that it's more likely that he'll peak around Chauncey

there's almost no way he'll match or be better than chauncey. he doesn't even strike me as someone that works hard. chauncey was a gym rat.

I don't think Okafor is comparable to Gasol, for the fact that he isn't 7'1.

The Boogie comparison has some merit though. Difficult to separate the Kings environmental factors (sorry rck), but it's been difficult to build around Boogie.
