I saw a lot of Ike during his college years at ASU, and was always impressed by his overwhelming presence in the post. Has good footwork, can work with his back to the basket, solid rebounder, and definitely a good freethrow shooter for his size/position.

He also looks like Keenan Thompson from keenan and kel

I always wondered why he could never get minutes. If he has questionable work ethic then that's a downer.

Good signing, I'm surprised the Kings did not re-sign him. He beasted for them when given a lot of minutes putting up 32 points 11 rebounds and 28 points 13 rebounds, although it was the last 2 games of the season.

Decent signing. Don't think that it's "sticky" worthy though.

No team Ike has been on has used him correctly. Ike is best as a post scorer. In that respect, he needs the ball. Why every team expects him to be Ben Wallace and just defend and rebound off the bench is mind boggling. The guy was a pac 10 scoring beast. Do you think Nelly ball will use a post scorer, especially off the bench? Do you think he got a fair shot behind Oneal and Harrington? Do you think the Blazers ever played him enough and gave him the ball? And Sacramento thought of him as a throw in and didn't even play him. But when he did get minutes, and when he did get the ball, he produced. Why? Because he's good if a team knows how to use him. He's a scorer off the bench, and needs the ball to be most effective. Just because he comes off the bench doesn't mean he should do nothing but rebound and defend. He can do more, and needs to find a team that isn't blind to what he can do.

Oh so Ike gets a sticky but not Solomon Jones? The potential of a Hans Solo frontcourt alone is sticky worthy. I call shenanigans!

Two good moves from the Hornets..Swapping chandler for Okafor and adding Diogu who will strengthen their front court if anything...I hope they dont stop there though, they still need one more good signing to be contenders IMO...
