    Big Baby might dominate as a starter out West...

    We've seen him give Tim Duncan and Pau Gasol problems at times.

    Name 2 Western conference Pf's better than those guys.

    Blake Griffin isn't even better than either one...yet.

    Love BBD but his biggest problem is his lack of height and jumping ability.  He gets his shot blocked more than anyone I've ever seen because he's very aggressive toward the hoop and then he can't jump.  BBD is not quick enough toplay PF and has been a 5 since being drafted by the Celts as he can be physical inside.  I don't think he would dominate as a starter anywhere but definitely not as a 4.  BTW Blake Griffin will be the best 4 this year and BBD couldn't guard him for 5 minutes.  One of the reasons BBD does so well defenseively is he's a wide body who'll take a charge and standing behind him is Garnett who can step in for blocks when a player blows around BBD.  Perkins did that for him when BBD did slide over to the 4.  With a tremendous big 4 behind him BBD is effective.  But, you need to take a closer look at B. Griffin as he's on his way to MVP seasons.

    On the right team. BBD will stifle your best post up player and make pick and pop's on offense, and box out like a lineman!

    The only thing that I have ever seen BBD dominate is a Double Quarter Pounder with Cheese.

    Cool

    Re: Big Baby might dominate as a starter out West...

    Let's examine:
    Aldridge: BBD will keep him off the boards and out of the paint
    Kaman: same
    Camby: same
    Duncan: same
    Ibaka: same
    Griffin: same
     just to name a few.

    BBD will have trouble with strong post up 7 footers with great hook shots ( which are very few)
    And 7 footers that are great jump shooters ( very few)

    Otherwise he will sag when faced up and take the charge on the Blake Griffins of the world( If you have a ref with the nerve to make the call)

    Let's examine:
    Aldridge: Will spin off BBD and go right by him for the dunk.
    Kaman: same
    Camby: same
    Duncan: same
    Ibaka: same
    Griffin: same
     just to name a few.

    BBD will have trouble.

    He is NOT a starter anywhere - he is a role player.  He would play one of those guys you mentioned, then see one of his "cheeks" fall off after about 25 mins.  He will never have a better job in the league than the one he has now.  He should shut up, get in shape, play behind KG for one more year, then next year compete for the starting role with Johnson.  He has clearly never been coached before, based on his comments about Doc.

    More like they will try to spin baseline only to find out they have'nt lost him at all and are now trapped by his strength behind the backboard with no way out!

    Agree.  Not sure if he ever played football, but he is definitely built more like a football player than a basketball player.

    He likes to talk. He likes to clown around. He should leave the NBA and become a pro wrestler in the WWE. He might dominate there.

    Re: Big Baby might dominate as a starter out West...

    I hope we resign him and play him and the rookie untill we see what the rookie is ready to do for us, if the rookie is as great as some think then we can trade Glen around mid season.  Glen is a more important part of this team than many think.  I would say doc and glen need to work out their problems in a closed room and put Baby back in our plans untill we see if we have a repalcement.  It is crazy to let him go if we want #18.

    Re: Big Baby might dominate as a starter out West...

    The guy is one of the most out of shape pro's ive ever seen. LA would school baby , LA has game for days. He can step out and hit a 15 ft jumper , take it to the cup and can play with his back to the basket. You really think baby could cover Randolph? Cant believe nobody mentioned him. He would eat baby alive if someone was dumb enough to put him on Z-Bo for an entire game. And you really think baby can hang with Griffin for an entire game? LMF AO You really think baby can stay in front of these guys and stop them on the D end and put up #'s on the O end? Baby cant even stay on the court bc hes so fat. These no excuse no a guy to be that out of shape.

    BBD is a 5.  He only slides over to PF for a few minutes against a backup PF.  He is a center.  Why anyone would think a smallish backup center would be a star PF is really beyond my imagination.  BBD should be thrilled that you mention him in the same sentence with Blake Griffin.  He should print out these ill-thought wondrous rants and scrapbook them.  BTW, BBD could play pro football.  Here's a link to a story...

    Re: Big Baby might dominate as a starter out West...

    Just to be clear: are you talking about the same Big Baby who came up small in this year's playoffs, the one who has no idea how to rebound and jacks up shots from the top of the free throw line? 

    Baby can be a good player in this league but he's going to have work his tail off to get there. I see him as a come of the bench guy more than a starter. 

    And please, enough with the idea he could have done anything against Duncan in his prime. Yeah, maybe against the Duncan who is a shell of himself now.

    Re: Big Baby might dominate as a starter out West...

    Baby is one of the strongest players in the league and obviously good in taking charges. He has a nice little jumper as well.

    But: He is a bad (defensive) rebounder, terrible shot blocker, no post up game and just hasn't got the breath to play starter minutes. The latter is the end of all starter dreams.

    Very interesting article.  I guess some of us were right about Davis having the potential to play football.  He probably would have been a good football player.
