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.
