why?

He was an indifferent rebounder in HS, College and now as a pro. What makes you think he will become a better rebounder than the taller, heaveir brook lopez? laugh.gif

Like just pure hoping an wishing?

You acting like Lopez been pulling 11-12 rebounds a game and getting 3 blocks. laugh.gif He average one more rebound then Jalil as a rookie. I just think Jalil will get better at rebounding, you don't, cool.

This is one of the biggest misconceptions about Okafor, that he was a good passer in college, he was a DECENT passer against college defense. but it took him dribbling around with the ball for 4-5 seconds before he could make the correct read. and he had a really low assist rate.

Okafor wasn't a great passer in college and he's even more of a black hole in the pros. and that's reflected in his single digit assist rates.


Cousins was a good defender at Kentucky, and in his rookie year, if you WATCHED him, you could see the instincts, hands, incredible defensive rebounding, the problem was effort and fouling, that's a complete different than Okafor who is slow, poor iq and struggles making the right rotations. much more difficult to fix.

Kentucky had a top 5 defense, with Cousins, and Boogie was a big part of that.

The only way Okafor and Cousins are comparable is the handle and the post game.

All Okafor, has to do become Cousins type is become an elite passer, rebounder, good defender, decent shooter to be like Cousins. That is a LONG way to go.

You have a really skewed vision of who cousins was...and who he is now. Virtually ALL scouting reports had his weakness as maturity, athleticism, lateral quickness, defense, conditioning.

I watched all of kentuckys game in 09-10. Kentucky was a good defensive team because of the overall talent and Cal's scheme. They are ****** Kentucky in the SEC with 5 first rounders. Of course they're defensive numbers would be good laugh.gif.

All Cousins had to do to become who he is today is: get in better shape, become a good defender, become a decent jump shooter, mature.

A lot would've said that is a LONG WAY to go 4 years ago. Stop it man. Revisionist like a mug. All the tools were there for cousins.

All the tools are there for Jahlil. He can become a better defender, shooter and rebounder with time. It's not a long shot.

We need to be real about what we are. A good team that is a tier below the Cavs, Dubs and Spurs. TBH, we're probably overachieved this season considering how much time Blake has missed. Getting Blake back may push us up another level, but considering it's not going to happen until there's just a couple weeks left in the season, there's just not going to be enough time for him to get integrated back enough to make a big difference.

Going to be another season where we get out of the 1st round in 7 and lose in round 2. But this year we won't have the tease of possibly advancing to the WCF because we'll get handled quickly in the semis.

But I've enjoyed this season. Aside from today, the team competes hard and I've enjoyed seeing both CP and JJ have career seasons in their 30s.

not revising anyhting, if you think you can scheme your way to a top 5 defensive I think you are fooling yourself.

If you want to bet on Okafor suddenly becoming a completely different player go ahead.


Maybe he learns to play defense, learns to rebound at an elite level, learns to shoot, learns to pass at an elite level. I'll bet no, you can bet yes, we shall see.

fyi

Cousins was top 15 in the league in charges drawn as a rookie, led the league in charges drawn, in 2013 and 2014.

if that doesn't speak to his defensive IQ, I don't know what does. He always had the insticts.


Jahlil doesn't.

well, its been documented that Rondo came to Sac to play with Cousins... and we know what type of personality Rondo is, so probably Favors

Loved wresting when I was a kid, back when they Saturday Night's Main event on NBC, plus a kids cartoon on Saturday mornings. Hulkamania running wild, brother! I was one of those kids who would want to fight someone who said it was fake. LOL. Was on the verge is tears when they made it look like Hulk Hogan had to go into intensive care from getting avalanched by King Kong Bundy. But I grew out of it by like 8th grade.
