    Dude has massive potential on the defensive end. He needs to bulk up and he can be a Camby like defensive force.

    Dream scenario would be Dike but realistically probably Camby

    Since the young man can dunk from about 8 ft out no problem....

    Seriously though, a turn around, a stop and pop from 10 ft. Some semblance of a post move that isn't one damned hook shot....he'll be unbelievable.

    I think this is what cost us the game. Capella was after every rebound.

    It's hard for me to criticize McHale for it though. If he stick Capela in that spot and Capela screws up not only are fans pissed but so are players like Smith who will feel disrespected a dumb rookie cost them a game.

    I say take the loss on the chin and let it fuel the rookies.

    I was worried winning that game would make us look over the Kings Wednesday. Not anymore.

    No, it's Capela.

    I think Capella will be the new Beverly.

    refreshing to see someone other than Dwight play above the rim with power. Run a squad of Dwight/Capela/Smith/Harden/Brewer out there for a little while and see what happens.

    Couple of months ago I wrote a bit about how people are way too harsh on Capella

    I get it but Capella was playing the best out of all the bigs. If he makes mistakes at the end of the game then o well he's a rookie it's gunna happen. When a 10 year vet turns it over twice and can't secure defensive rebounds in crunch time then it's a problem.

    Good dunks. We could use some monster FT from him last night. His FT % is at 0% right now. We keep finding bad FTers.

    Awesome.



    I guess this kid's going to be better than I thought ....and progress faster.

    It DOES help getting silver platter jobs , but he's got IT.

    DM the GM and the Rockets legendary big men coaches ....sweetness.
