so you feel Okafor is better than Towns ?



No I don't but I use this to demonstrate that he can play. We have a few guys that are wondering why the Bulls could possibly want to trade Mirotic and a Mid First for him. Okafor isn't chopped liver. He is stuck behind a guy that is better and they have to unload him. Kid can play. He has holes but they aren't enough for me to back off this trade.

Reading the scouting report on Okafor, and it screams Eddy Curry. I remember Skiles responding how Eddy could rebound better: jump.

No. Curry had no heart. This guy fought someone for saying that the Sixers suck. He's a smart kid too.

He doesn't have the conditioning and athletic problems Curry had and he's a much better post scorer now than Curry has ever been.

Except Steph is still better and having a better season than him for the third year in a row.


Steph Curry is a product of that system. Irving has Big Game James to contend with. Curry was just a "guy" before Kerr came and moved him off the ball essentially.

Yeah, and Tom Brady is just a product of his system too.

We've never seen Brady play in any other system. With Curry we have and he wasn't considered all that great.

A rich man's Eddy Curry is still a pretty shitty NBA player.

We're haggling over giving up a poor man's Matt Bullard. I'd trade a link card with a $200 limit straight up for Mirotic right about now. The sooner Paxson moves on from this bum the better.

They could deport Mirotic to Pakistan and it won't make a difference with this limp dick team.

My source has committed ritual suicide, but he said this deal is still a go right before he killed himself.

Curry averaged 23 ppg the season before Kerr became coach.

Colangelo's such a dumbass. Maybe the league needs to step in again for the 76ers and fire him and try again.

Almost literally.

Curry averaged 15 points a game in 29 minutes at age 20.

And we was at 16 points while shooting .538 at age 21.

Stats seem similar to Okafor, who I think they should go after. He's friends with other Chicago guys, and he has some talent. No idea how smart he is. Don't think it matters that much on the court. It could be valuable if he's a good recruiter.

I read somewhere that the deal fell through because the Bulls refused to include Valentine in the deal.

Pathetic.

It's pretty damn depressing that Denzel Valentine was the obstacle to this trade.
