I would rather have Diop coach this team than Mike Dunlap.

`Jop' would be a 4-ever pick for the Bulls


May 21, 2001|By Skip Bayless.


Two or three years from now you'll look back and think: How could Jordan have not taken Diop No. 1? Diop is the one athletic freak in this draft. Diop is the only man alive age 18 or above with the potential to be better than Shaquille O'Neal.


Playing for basketball factory Oak Hill Academy, the 7-foot, 310-pound Diop stole the show with his shot-swatting, jump-hooking, rebounding, free-throw shooting and court-running. Here was a physically mature man-child with the feet, touch and timing of a young Hakeem Olajuwon. All Diop needs is time.


"Down low Sagana reminds you of Shaquille the way he moves.


Now thats he's obviously added an elite mid range shot to his game the ceiling for this kid is beyond GOAT. Like, Shaq+MJ combined into one body.

Sachmo's 2k accomplishments with Gana prove that he should have been the next Shaq, nothing new here.

We need to resign Diop. If we let him walk, I am officially through rooting for this franchise. Diop is a max player, we need to lock him up.

found myself watching this and getting pissed off that Maxiell got the role of our washed-up 15th man instead of Gana.

Gana has started a juice diet. I fully expect Sachmo to join myself and follow the developments as the next days go by. So far we've had two instagram posts in 20 hours.

He's slowly working his way up, it's just a matter of time before he's running his own team. Clippers should dump rivers for him. I expect big years from gobert and favours now

I saw from that earlier Dallas tweet he still has plenty of fans in Dallas. He won a few over in 05/06, if only D Wade wasn't cheated into the championship that year.
