My fellow Celtics fan really has bad taste when it comes to talent.

I thought I misjudge Monroe but after seeing this thread now I know why.

Dude says that Monroe is still good despite of him being garbage and totally useless as a Celtics.

*Waiting for him to throw Monroe's 6 RPG he got from garbage time

Monroe is a career 14/9 player and that includes that last 2 years getting spot time. As bad as he is on defense he destroys Baynes and Theis offensively and as a rebounder. That's what you get with role players - you take the good with the bad. That's why they're role players and not stars.

Monroe's career average is 8.6 rpg; 10.7 rpg per 36 minutes. But all those rebounds came in garbage time. Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiggggghhhhht.

Anyway, this isn't about Monroe, its about Okafor. Lets stay focused please.

Okafor has a solid post game, but his defense is embarrassing

In this clip he should get a defensive 10 seconds and still can't make the defensive play.

side note: wtf was that ref thinking, he's looking right at him

I hope Okafor can get it together, I like the way he can hold the ball in one hand and make a pass or use his soft touch around the rim to get a basket. He needs to lose weight, do a lot of agility exercises and watch a bunch of tape to get better as a defender.

Not really. Heís been talking up Okafor since he was drafted. And wanted Celtics to trade for him when Okafor was on the trade block.

Dude about to become an all-star. There are some options where I see this move working out. When the Pelicans want to slow the game down and go into their halfcourt stuff, Okafor is that option. Want to put Davis on the perimeter and Okafor on the block...high/low game. Nice options.

Pelicans have a ton of depth in the frontcourt now. They are one weapon away from making some big noise this year.

given the talent of the guy, he absolutely deserve a second chance.

Most important thing for him: Learn how to be a + player without the ball in his hands. Once he'll adjust mentally and physically, he could have an OK NBA Career. Working everyday with the best NBA Big Man should help him

The last thing they need is to upgrade the front court.

Their weakness is the 3 position. They badly need to upgrade the wings (3). Someone who can atleast defend decently and can shoot from the arc ala Ariza.

KD rape Pelicans because their wing is like a 6'5 SG who doesn't even stand a chance.

Last season they stock like PGs and convo guards and forgot about the 3. Now they are filling up stock on the front court where their main strength is.

Again, wrong pieces from the shitty front court.

AD will anchor the defense. Okafor is like a poor mans Cousins. He can score, but he also needs to play hard and not act entitled.
