i think you're right about this description of wilcox as a clipper, but he has matured while with the sonics

last year, he developed as a team player while continuing to understand his place on the team

this year, with allen and lewis gone, he could further improve because of his role as the team "veteran"


i prefer chris to radmanovich (rad-mono-dimensional) who was just a cancer while with us

Wilcox is a stats guy, so of course people who watch won't be as impressed as the stats would indicate. He doesn't do much of anything that doesn't already show up in the stats sheet.

Kaman is only 24? Dude looks like he's ready for retirement. Maybe he should pay Giuseppe Franco a visit and buy some procede; might help

Because he's very inconsistent and had horrible work ethic, at least when he was a Clipper. Numerous players and coaches said that he didn't give much effort in practice, which is why he didn't get more playing time and was stuck deep on the bench and other guys got playing time over him. Also, the guy had virtually no jumper, didn't work to improve that, and his defense was iffy. Mainly got his points on putbacks and rebounds were due to jumping high.

No one cares about Chris Wilcox because players like him are not particularly rare. There are a lot of really athletic big men out there, and a lot of them are more skilled than Wilcox. The only area where he is even above average is rebounding, doesn't defend well, doesn't pass well/make his teammates better, non-existent jump-shot, limited post game... he is a very athletic guy who gets a lot of dunks and layups and rebounds his area sufficiently.. not exactly a star caliber player.
However, Kaman, I see a bright future for. He'll go to multiple all-star games because he's one of the last true post threats. He's got great footwork and hands, he's good at sealing his man and he finishes with either hand. Add in an improving 15 footer, and I could see him being something like a rich man's Rik Smits. Maybe he won't get the most publicity because he looks like a cross between a zombie and Frankenstein, but he'll definitely be a top 5 center in the league for the rest of his prime.
