PostPosted: Wed Jun 28, 2017 11:17 am    Post subject: OFFICIAL BROOK LOPEZ THREAD!!

Today at 2:30 this afternoon is the Press Conference to introduce Brook Lopez to us!! It is being aired on TWC live and then repeated all afternoon back to back.

I am going to say how excited I am to have him. We have not had a top center on our team for such a long time. I hope he does amazing with us and we somehow keep him past this year....I really expect he will. Can't wait to see him play with Ball.

He wasn't really mentioned in any of the PG trades at this point and he can still be traded so that doesn't matter.

Oh trust me, if all Indy wanted from us was to add Bropez to the trade, we'd be trading him during his press conference.

We still don't have a top center on the roster even with Brook.

An introductory press conference doesn't mean he can't be moved: http://i.imgur.com/ZOekxv7.jpg

We would still have to wait until June 30th to move him.

Defense and rim protection is far more important at the center position today than generating offense.

Pelinka described him as all-star caliber. I'd say he's top 10, just because the center spot is dying and his game has evolved. FWIW, he's still the all time leading Nets scorer (and I don't know if this is a good or bad thing yet).

But of course, we're supposed to hate Lopez now. Gotta get with the times.

I actually think Lopez will do well with Lonzo and vice versa. Having said that, there are definitely ten centers I would take over him because of what he lacks defensively. Players listed as centers on BBref: Jokic, Gobert, Marc Gasol, Deandre Jordan, Myles Turner, Karl Anthony-Towns, Cousins, Whiteside, Horford, Noel.

What's he supposed to say with Brook sitting next to him? "He'll be a great player for us, but what we're really looking forward to is that fat contract coming off the books next summer so we can sign LeBron!" Rob is not going to throw a guy under the bus at his introductory press conference. Same way Mitch didn't throw Hibbert under the bus when we acquired him for the same purpose.
