As for Okafor, there are a lot of similarities between him now and a raw Olajuwon when he first started playing. Then, he took off. I really don't see the same for Okafor. I think that he'll do well but not a superstar. There were a lot better college players who didn't amount to anything in the pros.


I can think of some as well, but what college players are you referring to?

That's quite a story. I wonder whether he'll draw interest in the draft...

From what I saw of him, he was a dominant force offensively. Great around the basket. But anyway, we'll see how he turns out.

As a sidenote, a guy from my grade 8 class is entering the NBA draft this year. He was bigger than Shaq (in both height and weight) when we were 14. Here's an article about him:

Who, me? Nope, first I heard of this was LBJ's post.

Nice city, though. ;-D
