    From what I've read at the Bobcats forum, Okafor doesn't seem to care about basketball that much.

    Maybe you trade Sual and one of our bad deals for a 2.

    Remember, it goes beyond the surface and what we see. The Okafor deal proves as much. There could be a reason a team would want to move a 2 for one of our bad deals and a guy like Sual.

    I think all of this proves that as fans, we aren't equiped with enough knowledge of the details to judge what we can or can't do.

    or maybe he was tired of losing and the team not getting better. or playing in a empty arena.

    I wouldn't like basketball either if I played for the Bobjohnsoncats, the Blunder, the Clippers, etc.

    From his draft bio:

    He's developed a nice 10-foot jumper and has been looking for his shot more. To top it off, he's extremely smart and a very hard worker. Most scouts consider him the most NBA-ready prospect in the draft. The comparisons to a young Alonzo Mourning don't seem that far off.

    I find it a little hard to believe that a guy who hasn't missed a game in two years in this league isn't that interested in basketball. Especially while averaging a double double.

    Ideally, to me, I think Okafor is a true center. In today's game, the blueprint for PFs are guys that are 20-10. Okafor just doesn't have the post moves to average that, but he is PERFECT for 15-10 and defending other bigs. I read that the Bobcats even ran the offense thru Okafor. At least now teams will have to respect the Hornets inside game on BOTH ends.

    He plays much taller than 6'10" (which is only 2 freaking inches from 7'0" anyway ).

    Okafor's wingspan is 7'4.

    Larry Brown liked him but wondered if he had any interest in improving his basketball game as much as he did Yoga or Pilates

    to add to that the pf and c positions have changed over the nba during the 2000's. you can say the same for the sg position. 7-0 centers doesn't grow on trees. the new wave pf's come in at 6-8 to 6-9. a few teams use pf size players as centers. denver with nene, dwight is actually more of a pf, gasol played the 5 with injuries, there is okafor, duncan is more of a pf. wing spans, athleticism and length can more than make up for supposedly lack of size.

    larry brown has been known to publicly kill younger players who doesn't fit in with his criteria. he is a good coach. maybe okafor doesn't fit in for what he wants. sort of like the hornets need to go in a different direction to accomplish or reshape the team that will fit in how they want to play.

    Agreed. It can be hard for some fans to look at things from every perspective. I think they call it "black and gold glasses"....

    Too short to play center huh? Even Shaq got some!! Larry Brown is nuts!

    I dont care if he doesn't score a point. On defense, no more crappy layups for Parker or Ginobilli.

    Frontpage on ESPN NBA section reads "Sources: Deal Done"

    Anyone with insider, can you post excerpts from what Stein says about it?

    Thanks

    It's done. From what I've heard it's straight up...BUT...there was a point where they discussed other parts. It's just a matter of if it's Okafor for TC or with other pieces involved.

  24. #349
    I like the trade (a lot) but I went on YouTube and searched for "okafor" and literally have not seen anything but -insert player here- posterizes emeka okafor. At least we know he'll try to block the dunk even though it could make him look bad. Right? right???

    Good trade though, I'm excited about it.

    the only potential starting SG that i can see us having a chance in trading for after looking at every teams rosters is mike dunleavy...and that is about all that is out there
