It caught me totally off guard when this Brook Lopez-lookin’ dude splashed his first jumper. I thought he was a lot darker than he is. It turns out that I was thinking of Josh Powell. I don’t feel too bad about it, though, I mean, it’s too easy to get these no-minutes scrubs confused, even if one of these scrubs is now an assistant coach on the Rockets.
Now that Dwight Powell is known to be a big with range, we can start making player comparisons. LaMarcus Aldridge is aiming a little too high. Another player who has a similar game is Brook Lopez, but they look too much alike. Is he the third Lopez twin in disguise? Maybe. Anyway, that comparison is, again, somewhat lofty. Plus, Powell can shoot threes. Lanky big men who can shoot threes are not prevalent in the league.
I’ve got it! Manute Bol.
