Aminu did what Ariza did except markedly better
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.
Besides, saying Lopez is worse than Okafor is slightly ignorant.
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?
