Re: Nets still focused on keeping Brook Lopez
yup. and lopez was really an overachiever from the start. nobody expected him to come in that quickly his rookie season and make anywhere near that immediate impact. that's rare for a big man, no ifs ands or buts.
IMO brook's actual problem is that he quickly leveled off as a rebounder. he's probably never going to be a great defender, but rebounding is something he should be able to improve with hard work and so forth. that should be the one and only question mark in terms of his value.
still, very few centers in the NBA can score and pass like him, and he's not even close to hitting his prime yet.
i don't get why some nets fans are so harsh on the dude.
