he can't be this bad .. remember when he was considered the consensus #1 overall pick over KAT back in early 2015?? 

 

and he he looked like an automatic scorer in the paint during his rookie season .. a sure fire 20-10. i know his defense is questionable but it can't be bad enough to warrant this. everything seems to have changed after that bar fight .. and when embiid came along, it was a wrap

 

 

Well first, his defense is that bad. But beyond that, his offense isn't even that good. He has a pretty limited offensive game, and it's not one that complements today's game.

those poor 139 ppl added Emeka Okafor  

If you follow the advice on this board you will make 23.7 add/drops per week and end up in the exact same position in your league standings lol

Same position he played in Philly

So glad you mentioned KAT.

 

I find it hypocritical of the league to criticize Jahlil for his defensive faults while Towns' defense has really diminished with each passing game. 

 

On a side note, this was pretty cool for the Warriors to do:

Reports says Sixers willing to take a secodn round pick for him. Anything to see here?

 

Could be a Greg Monroe situation (ugly) but it would be nice-ish to see him in Boston since they bring out the best of their players and he gives them another weapon; Seems shaky since he picked a fight with the locals a few years back IIRC

 

Would make basketball sense for him to have a high low big man tandem 10 years ago but thats not how the C’s play. Not gonna but the ball in his hands over their motion O

Plot twist!

 

Clippers trade a 2nd for okafor in the wake of griffins injury since he doesnt need to play defense with DJ there and blake isnt exactly the epitome of defense either

 

they do this due to to them not knowing how to accept a rebuild seeing as they cannot sniff contention in the west

 

i mean hey, anything can happen right? haha

getting traded to BKN, worth the pick up? Doesn't fit at all with their gameplay but don't want to miss out

 

Yeah the upside is definitely worth it. I think he'll be the clear starter at C for the Nets. Worst comes to worst you drop in a few weeks.
