    Can WCS play the 5 full time though? In the future? He's a 4/5 tweener at this point. Skal will be at the 4

    I know we're supposed to take heart for the future and embrace the idea that the kids are learning some valuable lessons (like the Thunder are really, really, really good), but this is painful to watch.

    Great point that everyone needs to take into account. Every team does not have bigs like this.

    Maybe that's why Vlade grabbed Papa.

    I hope. I just want one of them to be good. Papa has been better and only 19

    Okay, things are looking a little better. I don't expect us to pull out a win but I do want to see competitive hunger...and so far, so good.

    Boy. That's arguably the most annoying thing I've seen in a while. :p

    The fact that at only 19 Papa has already put the work in to lose a bunch of weight and improve by leaps since summer league says good things about his future.

    Seems I'm eating a lot of crow lately, but since my initial negative reactions towards him I've been watching more closely. He has good instincts...and he's not afraid to get in there with Kanter or Adams, two of the biggest beefy jerks in the league. :)

    I am not unimpressed with Papa G. sure he is slow footed and out of his element out there, but he has the size and basic skill set to defend legit bigs. He is getting to the right places and doing the right things but often a half second too late. On the offensive end he is doing the things you expect of a center and again maybe a little slow or out of syn but the problem is not LEARNING or skills it is speed and timing.

    He bruised poor KK's knee!

    The shot isn't falling, but George looks better every minute he's on the floor.

    That last hook was totally in control, didn't look rushed, he got the shot he wanted... he couldn't have done that 3 games ago when he looked like a confused lost puppy on the offensive side.

    9 rebounds in 15 minutes for Papa G ....take notes Stein!

    Papa G showing some stuff and not backing down. He's the same age as the rookies we will draft in the summer.

    Time for an overreaction Papa G thread?

    I'm not watching the game, but the stats look good.

    He looks 100X's better than WCS does against OKC's huge big men.

    Willie actually really defended Kanter well on that last possession. Kanter tried bullying him down but WCS put up enough of an effort to not give him a clean look.

    Good to see Skal salvaging what started off as a dud.

    Lol Skalibrated. Oh Jerry

    In your face Sabonis!

    In a move that'll probably make Vlade happy, Skal is completely outplaying Sabonis II

    Galloway leaves Westbrook to help on Sabonis? o_O

    He has to when the two bigs have been getting backed down all night.
