From what I understand he doesn't know how to play basketball at all.

Sounds like Bynum at one point. Anyone remember? First few seasons. Dude apparently had only played a few highschool basketball games his whole life.

From the interview with the Cavs sideline reporter on the radio, he said basically all he can do is dunk. Athletic freak and plays no defense.

You can listen here: http://espn.go.com/e...play?id=7693328

Skip ahead to around 19 minutes.

I heard the interview earlier. The funny part was when the cavs reporter shared his views on our newly acquired players, when it's mason's/ireland's turn to tell something about Luke and Kapono, all I heard was: they are "fun" players. :laughing:

^ With all due respect, we're in the middle of the season almost heading to the playoffs, I don't think it's time.


I'm not saying give him 20 minutes lol

I'm saying keep him on the roster and let him practice with Kobe and learn the league

Luke and Kapono will also bring the ability to keep the bench very warm for the starters too.

Keep him around, just so he can learn from the guys he needs to learn from. It does no good sending a player as raw as he is over to the D-League, among more guys that are trying to learn the game.

Eyenga reminds me of Serge Ibaka, but don't jump off the cliff just yet by reading that...I'm talking about how badly his offense has been criticized, and how many really thought he was going to pan out as a James White. Guys like Eyenga can come into the game and wake the crowd up on a nasty put-back. It's stuff like that we tend to overlook.

Like I said with Jordan Hill, you can't expect Eyenga to carry the same role on his shoulders when he's a Laker. Two different teams (LA and Cleveland). There is no chance he will attempt seven shots a night, even if (for some crazy reason) he was given 20 minutes a game (he played 21.5 minutes per game last year, his rookie season, despite not being ready).

The bigger picture was that we landed Sessions. Eyenga will be a fun player...isn't a payroll-crippling guy, doesn't have to play at all if he doesn't pick the game up...it's really that simple.

Why? Just because he's SHOWN more? Eyenga has greater hops, more raw, and overall athleticism, it wouldn't be impossible.
