I like it when NBA (level) players play against 'regular' (inferior) competition. Cool to see how they do. Ive never heard of Majok, but he won't make it to the roster anyway. I'd be surprised if he makes it to the league at all..

I agree. I always bring it up, but it was fun seeing Mike Dunleavy Jr. play an EBC game on ESPN back in the early 2000's. I probably remember him doing better than he actually did, but it was just crazy to realize this normal NBA rookie was actually about 6'10'' and could rain from 30 (in addition to blocking shots at Rucker and dunking).

It's cool to see how much better, faster, stronger the average NBA player is..

We had Orien Greene playing for Amsterdam a few years back and he didnt fit in with the team really.. Didnt even start I believe. But still, he was just so much more gifted and skilled than most players. Fun stuff to see.

Majok has a ton of talent, he's just extremely weak and has no bball IQ. He was absolutely awful at UConn. A guy with his skills, athleticism and length that can play the 3 and 4 should at least be somewhat productive in college. He's got pretty good shooting ability too.

This compounded with the fact that he's already (or close to) 25 probably destroys any chance he has of making the roster.

It's considered doubtful that he'll make the Lakers
