Enough with the "really need OG back" comments 

Post#1 » by GED Education » Thu May 16, 2019 3:17 am

He would be in the same category as Fred and Norm. Virtually ineffective in every way. Yes, we know you OG fanboys are apparently basketball savants and see some all-star potential in him, but let's be real here. He's not a difference maker in any way and him being in lineup right now would make little impact.

On that note, we really need OG back

Yeah I'm with you, everyone's playing like ****. If OG plays back it's not like he can create for himself, he'd probably be **** as well.

You're forgetting one thing, he has length and is definitely a better defender than both FVV and Powell. He is more efficient on the offensive end as well.

I am going to take a guess and say that it would be beneficial to have another player that could switch on Giannis as well.

OG is much better than both simply due to his defensive value (or at least he was in the playoffs last year). But he's not coming back, so not much point in bringing him up.

Anyone that keeps that midget off the court would help to stop points bleeding when kawhi rests, today we gassed kawhi in the third and got nothing from him in the fourth. Combine that with Ibaka staying home on Lopez and it's a different outcome.

But Og is not walking through that door, neither is Delon weight, so please Jeremy Lin, save us.

Ofcourse he is.


He’s a versatile big body. Good rebounder and a decent 3 point shooter

crazy thing is i trust og's shooting to be consistently average despite how the game is going. When people are kind of struggling to knock it down og doesnt really care. Oh yea and hes 6"8 built and moves really well...

OG is a cross between Norm and Ibaka in sense of what he can do.
Much better than just Norm or just Ibaka or just FVV trash.

He was garbage all season before he had surgery. He hasn't touched a ball in over a month. What kind of positive impact are you expecting from this guy?

So you think OG giving Kawhi and Pascal an extra 3-5 minutes of rest every game wouldn't be valuable?

OG’s been terrible all season. I have no problem with him not playing.

I don't see OG as some sort of saviour, but do we really need to debate marginalize some injured player? I don't really see the point. Though I don't really see the point of those who think we'd be much better off with OG. Our bench is so bad, I can see how even having an ok bench guy would probably be a good thing though.
