    Lets see what he does in the DLeague first.

    Dudes confidence will get destroyed playing the 4's in the west and then sitting on the bench 90% of the time wont help either.

    Clint Capela is a black guy from Europe. His name sounds neither black nor European. So annoying. Is he trying to confuse fans?

    Morey is trying to confuse our fans on race this year.

    Capela is definitely a Swiss name.

    Tia shame, in right program I would anticipate a good career for DMo; Capela? Too early to tell IMO.

    Well said.You know people in here completely forget he's only 19 years old for christs sakes lol. He'll grow into his body over the next few years for sure. Bigs take longer to develop.

    Yeah...I haven't forgotten he's 19 and it takes a couple years to develop.

    Once again, we're not in that mode. We're in championship-contending mode. So...unless he shows greatness relatively quickly...he's a trade commodity.

    Doesn't make much of a difference, but he is actually 20 I believe.

    Makes a huge difference for a 6'10 kid who's body hasn't matured yet.

    At least you can admit it. More than once I've started a reply to one (pick one, any one) of your petulant, negative posts and then stopped. But you're like the Energizer Bunny. Every time I think, "He'll run down, that's it," you just pass on by again, beating the drums: Morey sucks [boom boom boom], the Rockets suck [boom boom boom], this signing sucks [boom boom boom], that draft pick sucks...

    What, Bosh stiffs us and you think Morey is done with the roster?

    You've forgotten we didn't acquire Harden until late in the offseason?

    But good for you. The first step on the road to recovery is recognizing you have a problem.

    Capela seems ahead of the curve on the defensive side, and he seems to show tremendous athleticism, but I don't think I would expect a whole lot when it comes to offense.

    He seems to come from the Mutumbo/Asik/Dorsey mold of defensive bigs, and asking him to develop a jump shot let alone a three point shot looks like wishful thinking to me.

    Why are we asking players to be what they are not? Capela's game appears anything near the basket, on both sides of the ball. Removing him from the paint weakens his strongest traits. I love this kid's potential.

    Capela, Johnson and Pap are my dark horses to a surprising rookie season, after some home cooking at the D-League.

    I'll be happy with contributions from all three. In their soph seasons. OK, I think Santa Claus comes thru with rotationable minutes this year.

    I'd absolutely LOVE for you to show us.

    Because up to now, I consider you a troll for the most part. None of your posts have any semblence of actually tryin to discuss anything rationally.

    You just popin and hit us with your one liners that rarely have much to do with the subject being discussed except to crap on them.

    Prove me wrong.:rolleyes:
