They don't look a like they have similar games.  They are both big guys that take up space, are good rebounders, can score in the low post but can't really step out and shoot jumpers, and they both shoot about 55% from the free throw line.   

 

I love how you just make $h!t up, I never once said he was great.  He is a good pickup.

 

You basically just described almost every center who has ever played basketball. No, not the soft pussy "stretch 4" guys like the dookies are used to recruiting, but guys who can go down and bang. Very, very insightful. Well done. 

 

Your "logic" is the same as a pro baseball team like the Cubs saying, "well...Evan Gaddis had 20 homeruns, 90 RBIS in the majors last year....and we have a propsect in high single A ball who put up similar numbers. Better call him up immediately and pencil him in as the catcher for tomorrows game against the Reds." 

 

I do think that he'll be so happy to GTFO of Rice that he will be more than willing to set screens all day every day. Something I highly doubt Okafor is going to be happy to do next year. We will see.

Yeah I am sure any center can come in to a D1 school and average 11ppg and 9rpg.  

 

I think it's funny how people want to think Duke does't run an offense through their bigs.  Coach K tailors the offense around his strongest parts like in '02 it ran through Boozer, in '06 it ran through Williams, and in '13 it ran through Mase.  You have to have a capable big to run an offense through if that is the offense you want to run.  Okafor is the key to next years team and the offense will run through him just like it did with Mase his senior year.

They can when they play the schedule (and competition LOL) Rice played. 

 

And the #1 recruit in the country is the "key" to next years team? Wasn't big bad Jabari Parker and superstar transfer Rodney Hood the "key" to this years dookie team?

He was the key and lived up to the hype the team was flawed though. Nobody stepped up at the 5 spot and they couldn't play defense.

You gonna be sad when you get to watch him STROKE the three for the Hornets next year? Hopefully he takes Gerald Henderson's roster spot.

Nope as long as he stays out of trouble and pays for his own rental cars I will gladly welcome him to the Hornets.
