And that's from almost 3 years ago.

Nixluva is posting triangle screen grabs, even when nobody asks - Fishmike. LOL So are we going to reference that thread like the bible now? "The thread of Wroten Page 14 post 9" - EnySpree

did not see anything there that supported a twin towers being successful.

I did see my old friend Robin Lopez, and if you want to go to a point where this franchise took a step back, it was Phil trading him, and signing Lee & Noah. Imagine how we would look for next year with Lopez expiring vs. Lee & Noah?

I'm probably biased because I actually met Mitch in person... Even played a game with him....eventhough he wasnt going hard and just preparing for the draft. But I see a huge future in Mitch. He has abilities you cant teach. My only concern is basketball is not his 1st love.....Hes a very interesting dude and more of a geek than u would expect...I mean geek in a good way....Engineering and science type dude.... But if hes surrounded by the right people, hes a perfect Camby / Capella type center. KP is a similar physical freak with more offensive skills. Both will operate in different spots on the floor....and both are blind side shot blockers. Knox is a great mix....especially as his 3pt shot becomes more consistent.

Yep....and worse case Mitch can be a Lopez clone with more upside.

His body language screams at you with this notion, it just seems like he's doing this for other reason than love, and to me that always limits a players potential..

Yup yup
Rolo and KP = #1 Rim protection duo in the league.

That's a great what if scenario. We miss out on Dotson, but we also avoid the worst contract in recent NBA history...

Hope is a good thing. And nothing good ever dies, but it just may not make the playoffs.

A science geek and engineering Geek? The question is why couldn't he sustain in College then?
Even better, why could he not get to Stanford, Georgia Tech, Cornell, or any program with good engineering school. Do two years, finish later.
Curious if anyone knows why he went to E. Kentucky? ANd then blew out before season started?
Curious in a pick up game how you got to know him and his passions? Im not being snarky here. I like this kid.
I recall Doleac wanted to go to med school. He did go back and got his masters degree in physics and teaches high school in Park City UT and coaches the basketball team. Im thinking he took care of his money makes a decent "Wage", has his house paid for and lives in a great town if you like winter sports.
Does not bother me at all if a player has his eye on life after playing ball as long as he does his thing while here.
You don't show a fool a job half done!

I miss RoLo. Hope Mitch has watched some of KP's block highlights and listen to Clyde. he doesn't have to jump to block a shot.

I miss RoLo as well, stupid trade that was. Mitch definitely had potential and brains and plays defense. Was really wrong in my initial reaction to this kid being drafted.

I feel Mitch won't really come on strong until after next season. Its to early to just plug him in. Vonleh could probably be plugged in next to KP until Mitch is ready.

That was brutal on draft night. There was information out there about Mitch that indicated he was a high character kid that messed up his college eligibility.
