Yep, he would also be a very nice JC replacement once we ship Clarkson off.

Ooh, that's potentially the best piece in this deal depending on which 2nd the Sixers included. Good work by Marks there.

Yeah, he's like a discount JC. I could see that happening, though I don't know the team pecking order for the waiver wire right now.

Solid. A little additional ammunition if they want to move up in the 1st.

Nets basically now have the Number 2 and 3 Picks of the 2015 Draft.

Both 20 ppg scorers. I say that because I figure that is what Okafor will average when given play time.

He nearly did it his rookie year. Dedicated himself this off-season and lost a lot of weight, improved his mid range, and got more lateral quickness.

Wondering if this is going to be a Nurkic situation, which the Nuggets wound up regretting when it was obvious Nurkic had made strides and improvements in his game they never took advantage of.

I will stand by a statement I heard before that if Okafor's defense could even get to Nurkic's level.. he'll be an all-star and the Sixers will regret trading him and will be hoping on each star they have, that Embiid remains healthy.

And no expectations to win, so plenty of playing time for both of them.

Funny that the two sides of the lakers divide on okafor va DLo now gets a chance to follow the nets as their secondary team with both players on it

Tough when one of your primary guys (Simmons) canít make a catch and shoot jumpshot.

You have some things to learn about fit MJ if you think you can just throw any parts together, even talented ones, and they will work.

Simmons is essentially A 6í10 Rondo right now. He orchestrates that offense with the ball in hands often. Unfortunately, James is essentially a PG as well and does the same job.

James can shoot, so thatís cool, but Simmons shoots as well as Rondo. Heíll have a very difficult time playing off of James effectively. If Simmons could shoot, it would have a chance, but since he canít, really never has, and is probably years away developing a jumpshot, itís a bad fit.

Simmons and James would have to change the fabric of the way theyíve played their whole lives for it to work, and, yeah, they could do that, but youíd be asking too much of them to dramatically change their games.

Sometimes itís just a bad fit.


LeBron isn't going to Philly. Plain and simple. But as far as fit goes, Simmons is one of those guys who can "fit" with just about anyone who can pass and play legit hoops. He knows how to play and move off ball despite not having a jumper. Just like everyone thought LBJ and Wade wouldn't work, they would figure it out.

So Dr. No, aka MJST, what is your master plan for the next 2 years for the Lakers since you seemingly don't want LBJ or PG13 on this team? Could you give us a concise vision of how you take this team to the playoffs next season, then a top 3-4 seed by 2019?


Isn't it obvious? Feed Julius the ball, bench anyone who questions this or disagrees, and then occasionally let one or two other guys get the ball then talk them.up post game so that he thinks his bias isn't completely obvious to everyone else despite how blatant it is?

When I look back on favorites of the 2015 draft.

If you'd told anyone (such as Mike@LG) that a team was going to have a young 3 going forward of D'Angelo Russell, Caris LeVert and Jahlil Okafor...


I say that considering how big a fan Mike was of LeVert as well.

If Caris can put it together then the Nets have a pretty solid team going forward in theory.

D'Angelo Russell
Allen Crabbe
DeMare Carrol
Rndae Hollis-Jefferson
Jahlil Okafor

Bench unit
Jeremy Lin
Caris LeVert



Not a bad start. For a team that had essentially no pick for the past 2 drafts.. they essentially just got the number 2 and 3rd best players of their respective drafts both with a high upside and scoring potential.

LeVert is another kid with solid upside as he puts it together. The question is "if" instead of "when" at this point considering his season thus far. But I think he will.

So we'll see. The Nets have done a good job recovering from their 'doom' which was hanging over them and seemed all but certain till we gift wrapped Russell to them.

Its a NY thing now. Your got Porzingis in NY, Okafor and DLo in Brooklyn. They are joining forces and they still wont be close to him.
Gosh I remember how badly I wanted Porzingis and everyone here was telling me he sucks, hes going to be a bust etc, everyone wanted Okafor or DLo. Well Porzingis is muuuuuuch muuuuuch muuuch muuuch better than both.
