    Does anyone else's mind automatically go to Boki Nachbar when you watch Casspi or is that just me?
    Maybe alot of it has to do with the fact that they are both 6'9, white, and slashers but I get a little nostalgic when I watch Casspi play. He's like the player we all wanted Boki to be; we just had to wait 9 years for it.

    Yeah, I expected quite a bit more from Boki.

    Didn't JVG say something like he was the only European who couldn't shoot?

    Casspi has ugly form on his jumpshot. But as long as they're going in ...

    Nachbar was a great defender and Casspi not so much.

    He's not "white"... he's Israeli dude. And it has nothing to do with his ability as a professional basketball player. Get this racist crap out of here.

    People who think this is a racist post are just projecting their thoughts on everyone else. I think the OP was being light-hearted.

    I can't believe it's only been 9 years since Boki Nachbar... seems like a lifetime ago, lol.

    However I remember how everyone around here would have cut Casspi during training camp from watching 10 mins of scrimmage video... let's not get ahead of ourselves.

    Woah there.. It was nostalgia, I loved boki, and they honestly do remind me of each other. No need to throw out the racism card.
