    DAMN foos runnin round here like gazelles in heat.

    Pitiful comparison.

    Love runs floor extremely well and is an elite 3pt shooter. Elite. Historically great last years.

    Best (realistic) case we got enforcer and quality backup 5 who cheers hard off the bench.

    & I'd be fine with that. Already brought up the Dudley idea in another thread but apparently since white players shouldn't be compared to white players, I think maybe a better comparison would be Jason Collins.

    When describing Jorts always precede any comparison with "POOR MAN''S" and you'll be safe.

    Even D'Antoni said he is no sure thing and he has a more informed view than any of us so we wait to see if we have Bill Lambeer or Frederic Weis.

    All l'm looking for is a guy who won't be afraid to mix it up downlow when he's on the floor, box guys out, play some defense in the paint, & most importantly will watch STAT & Melo's backs when other players try & get too physical with either of them. From what I've been seeing & reading about him, I think Jorts can be that guy. Anything else we get from him in terms of offensive skills in the post or midrange shooting ability is just gravy as far as I'm concerned.

    The way MDA plays favorites I'm not putting much weight into what he says about any player in particular. Players that couldn't see the light of day in his system have proven they have the talent to be productive on other teams. But I agree it is a wait & see with Jorts. Hopefully he's more Laimbeer than he is Weiss, but I'd be happy if he were Jason Collins or Etan Thomas (trying to keep this PC now).
