    11 points and a defensive difference maker. They're killing the Raptors. Just killing them with their length and athleticism.

    Gives one hope for Zhou, a more skilled and longer player than Maker, if he can add strength.

    Pretty sad to bump this thread right now., disappointing. Clint has been awesome for us defensively/offensively this post season. Doing work on Steven Adams and Enes Kanter along with Nene. It's funny how much better our Centers look when a little bit of perimeter defense is played.

    Thon is going to be an awesome player, but that doesn't take away from the fact that Clint Capela is growing into a fine player himself, nor does it take away the incessant Capela miscalculations put forth by the thread starter. Sometimes you gotta be happy with what you have, as opposed to constantly fawning over good players on other teams. Posting about another player, while demeaning our own guy, that is playing great defense IN THE PLAYOFFS, makes me question your Houston fandom and loyalty.

    Holic is always like that though, he is insisting Harden is the most selfish player in the NBA and is actively preventing superstar trades from happening because he doesn't want to share the ball.

    Also Harden should go back to being off the ball guy while broke shot Rubio would make this team a champion. Also Harden will never win a ring because he gets 1 more turnover than past champions. I used to waste hours arguing with the guy but now have just decided to let sleeping dogs lie lol. That guy quintiple downs when proven wrong.

    Yes I would...

    No way Bucks would ever consider this though. Maker is a future All-Star.

    Milwaukee sauces told me that Thon Maker was in a convenience store parking lot begging patrons to buy him a celebratory Milwaukee's Best last night because his fake ID say he's four years younger than his real age (24). Meanwhile, Clint Capela is jacked, can get hammered at bars, and can adopt as many children as he wants.

    We should trade harden for Rubio so we can have a chance at beating the almighty Westbrook

    "Thon Maker graduated high school in 2010 in Australia and 6 years later was drafted fresh out of high school. We have a 2010 yearbook photo showing him in 12th grade and a 2007 photo showing him in 9th grade."

    Pretty decent evidence that he is now 24-25, while Clint is 22. Makes you wonder.

    Not sure if you've noticed but Capela is doing just fine against the Thunder and we're up 2-0 rather than tied 1-1 like the Raptors/Bucks series.

    PASS!

    Bucks are up 2-1, actually. Maker is impressive defensively and has range from NBA 3. He's probably older than Capela, though.

    I wish Malcolm Brogdon would have lasted 1 more pick, and I like Nanu just fine.
