    I hate Bogut. He's a tool.

    Nene is paid heaps but has he played in the last 2 years? I know he did his knee and now he had a tumor in his hand.

    Vlade and Sabonis were pretty good players man. Sabonis was a solid big man until his knees just went out and all he could do was shoot 17 footers all night. And although Vlade could be considered the most hated NBA player of all time because of his flopping, he still was an effective player. And just think, if it wasn't for Vlade Divac, Kobe Bryant wouldn't be a Laker. So he has that going for him

    Oh, c´mon.

    I grew up watching Sabonis... that was a low blow. He was a great player, maybe not in the nba, but I enjoyed watching him playing in Real Madrid.

    Vlade and Sabonis were both solid. I wasn't putting them in the same class. Just in the class of foreign solid players.
    Sabonis had a great shot even when he was on his last leg. And could pass exceptionally well for a big man.

    Ok, we agree then.

    Sabonis was a solid player, which means a lot in the nba.
    Ricky could be a nº5 pick (that implies nothing less nothing more beyond draft day) and perhaps become a solid player too.


    So, what are we arguing about?!

    Like I said, I'm just trying to gage the hype. If people are saying he'll be a solid player like ginobli, ok, cool. If people are saying he'll be the next elite, that's where I say no.
