Yeah, Gerald Wallace is a good player, but I was surprised that the Blazers gave up Pyrzbilla, too.

The beating big guys take of 82 regular season games is brutal in the NBA.

Want to know who the next good tough NBA big man will be that you never heard of?


Festus Ezili - class of 2012 - the next Hakeem Olajuwon

Why are the Blazers still holding on to him?

He was clumsy before his injuries and had no moves on top of being slow as turtle. Why is this man still getting paid????

Because he is better than Hasheem Thabeet?

I can't tell who he is better than because he stays on the bench

How about THIS epic bust...

TheDraftReview - Julius Lamptey 2005 Underclassmen

Even though we wasn't drafted, Portland signed him to a decent contract and then he bombed out in the D-league and all other forms of minor-league hoops. An obscure but monumental bust.

Some mighty big shoes there, his junior year Hakeem was averaging 13.5 rebs and 5.6 blocks per game, he was an absolute monster.

Fes averaged 13 a games as well on a team dominated by the scoring of 2 future projected NBA wing players (Jenkins and Taylor)...while Fes didn't average 5 blocks a game, he did have some 7 or 8 blocks games. All this while being relatively new to the sport of basketball. If he averages 16 points, 10 rebounds, and 5 blocks a games next season...he will be a lock as a lotto pick. He IS a beast.
