The Draft Thread/Center,Center,Center


Recommended Posts

I like to look at production not hype first of all. Mitch said "several" centers. "Several"

It's highly unlikely we get Mobley so let's get past that and finds us some big game!

I've got two. Big indeed. Plus they put in work.

Bassey is a scorer, shot blocker, rebounder. Everything Mitch asked for.

Kofi Cockburn is another big guy like Patrick Ewing from Jamaica also. 17.7 pts, nice! Good rebounder too.

There you go.

Kofi Cockburn's game and size 7'0 285lbs makes him a day one starter over ALL our rookies and vets, to me.

A total freak of nature in the mold of Shaq. Nobody is touching him in the paint, if they do they will be moved. He's scoring, dunking, dominant post presence.

Kofi looks like a football player playing basketball... He has to lose weight and work on his conditioning.. He's like Shaq without the nimble feet and years of basketball skills.. He looks like he just started playing basketball and is succeeding on natural ability (being bigger and stronger then everybody he faces) .  I didn't see alot of defensive highlights or shooting range outside of 4 to 5 feet from the rim... He needs alot of work but the ball clay to work with is intriguing...

Bassey seem like he further along in his basketball skills plays great defense has a jump shot and fits more with the modern nba centers game then Kofi... Kofi has a bigger upset but a way lower floor...

Does a player like Shaq work in today's nba anymore??

You're over the target. Does he fit in today's NBA? He's an old school lob it up, rebound stick back, Shaq 2.0.

His game is in the paint and only in the paint, but he is dominant there in the paint nobody can guard that stick back. Nobody is going to push him out even as a rookie.

I don't know if Shaq fits in today's NBA but I'd sure like to be the team that has Shaq.

Kofi needs to stay another year a develop his game..  

Him not getting pushed around is based on him facing talent not big as him.. In the NBA he will see guys on most nights just as big and strong as him... So I don't know if that is true..

His Defense will be a albatross on a team until he can show he can move around the perimeter... With bigs who can shoot and face up he will put us at a disadvantage in the defensive end.. 

I also didn't see any passing ability which if he's gone to just be a post player he better Atleast be able to pass out of double teams...

Jmo I don't think he's ready for the nba..

All true, but he IS a scoring big. He IS Shaq. I remember the same things being said about Shaq. Kofi has rare athleticism for that size. He's got a great feel around the rim. His outside game isn't strong (Shaq) but that inside game at 7'0 285lbs is NBA ready. The game wanted guys like Kofi but they became few and far between so theses 7'0 220lb guys started to get the run. Kofi (if you already got your 1-4 is exactly what you need at C, a huge immovable defender, a post scoring savant, if you get him the ball in the paint EVEN in the NBA it's over. He is physically a man among boys, just like Zion, big and heavy is big and heavy that won't change. He doesn't play like a man of almost 300lbs. He's running the floor with everyone else, he's defending. He is the old school center prototype. 

He IS soooooo much like Shaq to me, even FT %. People said the same things about Shaq, but who would be able to guide Kofi (Shaq) and Lamelo(Kobe) better than Mitch?
