    He is great in this game.

    But it's pathetic he is playing for Stupid McHale.

    Capela reminds me of Carl Landry's rookie year. Dude was beasting along side with Yao and Mcgrady. His knee injury really slowed him down, not the same player anymore after losing that hop. Too bad.

    Gotta give Prigi some props for those pick n' roll. If terry or beverley was running it, he wouldn't had those dunks.

    Yes sir, but we can hope Capela has touch with the ball and eventually develops a low post game.

    I couldn't care less. I just want him to be an absolute monster of a basketball player one day (WITH Houston, obviously) :grin:

    Pesky. Communication was a problem with Capela since he's a rookie.
    Prigi only looks good when there's a rim protector out there because he'll make them drive toward them.

    Didn't really look well when Dorsey or Smith was playing Center.

    Landry could shoot lights out inside the 3pt line. Capela's only offense is dunks.

    He doesn't look awkward moving on the court anymore.

    He has lovely touch around the rim. Check out some of his old Euro games, nice and soft on the ring.
    I realize he missed his first few layup attempts in the NBA, but that is just nerves, the kid has great touch within 10' of the ring, and will be the kind of guy who has a 55% FG.

    That's the impression that I get. Capela might have the best of both worlds: a soft touch around the rim which will help him once he develops a center's moves and the ferocity for dunks like Deandre Jordan.

    Definitely. Prigioni made all the difference there.

    Clint "The Neutralizer" Capella.

    Is this going to be rookie Carl Landry, or that one Memphis game that Joey Dorsey had in his 2nd year?
