    Awesome! Will check it out shortly!

    FYI, apparently Chinanu Onuaku's nickname is "Nanu." Morey called him that.

    I wonder if this guy would be better than Jordan Hill.

    Dorsey has more offensive skills.

    Take a shot to that.

    Joey Dorsey was a lot more of an explosive athlete than Onuaku

    Damn he does look fat in that picture. No wonder he has no vertical. Put him on a diet

    He was playing at Memphis. Are you suggesting that he'll become a more explosive athlete as he gets older?

    LOL @ Joey Dorsey being EXPLOSIVE. He's explosive in the sense that he was a BUST. Dude was glued to the floor and never displayed anything more than strong arming boys in college.

    LOL if you think a 2nd rounder not becoming anything special means they are a "BUST" then get ready to call Chinanu Onuaku a bust in a few years. If you are even expecting him to be a quality backup one day then you are setting yourself up for failure.

    You don't have to be a lottery pick, nor a first rounder, to be considered a bust. And the fact that you are trying to compare Chinanu to Joey's "explosiveness" is laughable. Chinanu as a collegiate player is already better than Dorsey ever was as an NBA player. I am not high on Chinanu at all and was very disappointed in the pick, but to say that he can't be a serviceable backup before he's even taken a step on an NBA floor just goes to show how close minded and short sighted your analysis is.

    Sounds more like a Tristan Thompson or cauley-stein type to me. Likely a poor man's version of either but if only 19...
