Ariza to Aminu
Aminu did what Ariza did except markedly better. Aminu could actually finish at the rim, draw contact, and didn't take near the amount of 15-18 ft jumpers that Ariza was so very, very fond of. Oh, and the rebounds, oh the rebounds...
Oak to Lopez
Oak played 25 games last year and the opposing centers PER was a solid 3-4 points higher than his in those games. Besides, saying Lopez is worse than Okafor is slightly ignorant. Go look at Okafor's stats before John Wall came back and say that. If Lopez had a PG the caliber of John Wall I'd venture to say he could be a better center too. At the very least, compare Okafor last year to Lopez this year and it's still vastly skewed in Lopez' favor.

I didn't get that sense at all. Aminu is horrible. He can't and won't shoot. He also can't dribble or pass. Ariza actually tried and he is a better defender. Both suck, but it was a step down to Aminu.

It's your right to disagree, but its a fact that Okafor is a better Center. He is a much better defender and rebounder. Okafor was intentionally held out of games last year and had to split time with Kaman. This year he split time with Nene. Absent that he averages 10/10 on 50+fg% and plays tough defense every year. He is just horribly overpaid.
compare Okafor last year to Lopez this year and it's still vastly skewed in Lopez' favor.
I'm not sure what you are saying. Cause Okafor didn't play as much? They both suck, but you can take Lopez scoring 1.4 more ppg, I'll take Oak's 2.3 more rgp. Either way, they both suck.
I will re-state my point then, moving from Oak/Kaman to Lopez was a downgrade. Happy now?
