MY NOTE:  A #5 pick, I think.  An old school big with very limited offense and not great defense or rebounding neither.  Jahlil Okafor without the offense.  Even in the Age of the Dinosaurs he's a vegetarian brontosaurus.

Another guy who has been almost completely washed aside by the supersonic wave of outside shooting that has really changed the NBA really in the last five years.

Must be very tough to be so "old" at such a young age. High school coaches around here have finally started to teach guard type skills to their big men even though hardly any will ever make the NBA.

I think part of the issue is that a lot of kids started off playing as guards, had ridiculous growth spurts, and became bigs with guard skills. Granted, I think it's weird that people before didn't think to teach bigs how to have those skills simply because of their size.
