    Man this dude looks weak and dumb as hell at times. I know its preseason but it has to be a concern going forward.

    He's servicable, but as a max salary commander lol no. Trade him before paying him Isiah style.

    How about MDA’s short rotation? How about is this simple offense exposed?
    How about our just threes maybe not the answer?

    Aldridge and Gasol punked his ass all night long. Laverne did too at times.

    He's actually a pretty bad post-defender. has been all the time - another reason why games against the Grizz felt so hard last year (Gasol and Randolph vs Capela and Anderson (prob the worst post defending froncourt)). His shotblocking ability is fine tho.

    Max salary commander? Capela? Lol, c'mon now...

    Who is handing over that type of bread to Capela? Nobody.

    he's looked sluggish all preseason. athletically he may be gifted, but he's simply not a good enough basketball player to put out there against the top bigs in the league. his man D in the post is just disappointing. i'm close to giving up on him, only because he's not going to be worth the salary he'll command next summer.

    no team is maxing out Capela unless he blows up

    Where were all the suitors for Noel this past summer?

    capela is 23 and has been clearly working on developing his offensive game and strength training.


    i fully expect tucker to teach him a thing or two on the defensive end. he is still under contract for another year after this correct? chill ppl lol.

    Still being manhandled by the real bigs, preseason or not, its the same pattern. Hoping for the best if he's still the guy once the playoffs begin.
