Jahlil Okafor is a poor man's version of Brook Lopez, who is in turn a poor man's version of Pau Gasol.

Ryan Kelly is a homeless man's version of Ryan Anderson.

PostPosted: Mon Apr 09, 2018 2:02 pm    Post subject: Here's an unlikely man's version of...

Say hello to ex-Laker MarShon Brooks, the newest incarnation of Jamal Crawford.

Code:

Season  Age Tm  Pos  G GS   MP  FG  FGA  FG%  3P 3PA 3P%   FT FTA FT% TRB AST STL BLK TOV  PTS
2017-18  29 MEM  SG  5  1 27.6 8.8 15.2  58% 3.2 5.2 62%  2.8 3.2 88% 3.6 1.4 0.6 1.6 0.6 23.6


4 years out of the league, worked on his craft in China, now dropping buckets in Memphis. He just got a 2 year deal with the Griz, probably not guaranteed for now, but it's a deal nonetheless. Chances are he logs a bunch of minutes in next season's Grizzlies tankathon.

Congrats to MarShon...hard work gets rewarded.

Poor man's version of Jamal Crawford? Ouch. People on here thought he would be a poor man's Kobe...

Yeah, Jamal Crawford. Come off the bench, knock down jumpers, play no defense. Not to hard to draw a parallel.

I don't recall Brooks ever doing anything Kobe-like. Not sure how anyone could jump to that conclusion. He was a guy with a jump shot, but not much of anything else beyond that in his first tour of duty around the league.

I don't see the similarities between Kuzma and Walker.

I just spoke to Shaq. He's going to pay you a visit later tonight with a few buddies of his.
