I don't see Lopez even developing that much. he's just another low-talent player able to look like an all-star against our lackluster frontcourt
Mid season pick ups of waived vetrans is not going to turn this team into a contender. Its pretty simple really, we need a big man who can be a post threat, rebound and protect the rim.
We need a star.
Doesn't fall off trees. Celtics need a semi-star. A Gortat/Nene/Robin Lopez type talent
Since when is Robin Lopez a semi-star? I'd honestly take Stiemsma over him.
Since he destroyed the sleeping C's the other night.
Lopez is a decent player on a bad team, and a relatively intriguing prospect for the future. But he is nowhere close to a star. Although, I do think he is approaching the level of Gortat (who isn't a star either).
Agreed -- I don't see R.Lopez as a future Gortat type either.
Offensively, I think Robin Lopez can already replicate what Gortat does but I don't think R.Lopez will become the defender or rebounder that Gortat is.
I am pretty disappointed in R.Lopez' development so far so I am not optimistic about him growing his game all that much in the future. I think he'll continue to be a well below average but passable starter to high quality backup center.
