I like him. If Nets can add someone in 2010 to go with Harris and Lopez. Watch out.

Anyone care to post up Lopez's stats so far this season and compare them to a rookie Duncan? Lopez does look good so far, very smart fella. I can definitely the similarities between Lopez and Duncan. Both make great use of simple fundamentals that never fail.

The numbers aren't comparable if you look at their rookie seasons. But what a steal the Nets got at 10!

They are comparable in terms of their size, and their ability to score with their backs to the basket, but until he dominates on defense and on the glass, the comparison will stop there.

Duncan is pretty much averaging the same now as when he was a rook. Timmy loves to be boring.
