Okafor has been a Net for 8 games

He’s played in 1. He’s been benched for 7

But we’re cool with that because he’s too fat to play in the Nets “system”

Nice

The Nets having a system made me laugh. Good for nets fans being excited about Okafor. Live it up while you can because next season when he’s still getting DNP - CD you won’t be able to use the “he’s not in shape for the nets system” excuse

How many times do I have to explain to you the simple concept of him getting in shape and acclimating to the system?

Jeremy Lin. Out for the season. Happened within the 1st week or two of the season.

How much are the Nets paying you to tow the company line?

All you're doing is mimicking a coach. If Okafor was good, he'd play, especially for a bad team like the Nets.

I seriously cannot believe we’re arguing I’ve whether Jahlil Okafor is good or not. You can say he needs to get acclimated to the Nets “system” until you’re blue in the face but it won’t make it true.

If he was good he would play, period.

Right, maybe his stamina isn't up to par for their 'system' (lol), but if he didn't suck, they'd find ways to give him minutes. They probably wanted the 2nd round pick more than Okafor.

The Cavs are worse with IT. Maybe it's him getting into game shape. Maybe not.

He probably makes their 29th ranked defense 30th.

The only thing that's going to fix this is getting an actual coach, not a yes man who's buddies with LeBron.

LeBron doesn't want to be coached so of course nobody is going to play defense because they don't have any defensive gameplan. Which basically means LeBron has to go. He's a great player but I'm sick of him holding this franchise hostage and it's obvious that his title window in Cleveland has closed

We got our title now it's time to start fresh. Let LeBron leave, cut Shumpert and JR, trade Tristan for whatever you can get. I wouldn't mind resigning IT and build around Love/IT and BKN pick which is looking better every day.

Just wait till Okafor gets 30 minutes a game, Brooklyn's going to the playoffs!

He scored 17 in 12 minutes in a win vs the Hawks #GOAT.

That means he should easily average 40+ per game

There were too many high expectations for IT, a lot of it because of himself.

Its gonna take him a WHILE to get himself back to normal, if he can this year.

The defense is a problem, has been a problem, and will be a problem unless they make a deal

Glad this was bumped, maybe the Cavs go on another win streak now. IT isn't in game shape and has played like crap and in turn has effected the Cavs chemistry. I'm still not worrried, the playoffs Cavs will be much better.

I'm not sure they can.

LeBron is superhuman, but the rest of the team is woefully inconsistent.

And nothing is going to make them magically improve on defense overnight.

inb4 another wave of overreactions

Cavs start out the year horribly: everyone says ITS OVER JOHNNY!

Go on a win streak: everybody silent.

Now IT comes back after a good few months away from real basketball activity and ITS OVER JOHNNY!! again.

As if chemistry between two stars develops within a week.

Have we not learned anything from the OKC overreaction thread?

Not saying they'll become a defensive behemoth, but they'll be just fine. At least more than fine enough to represent the East handily. Again.
