    The front page is a gathering of dolts ("unlike the refined RR forums of insightful gentlemen", he said somewhat tongue in cheek). It's somewhere between real gm and Facebook comments

    Misinterpreted stats aside I never see Jakob box anybody out on the defensive end. he's really really good on the O-boards though.
    And they involve different tools with Jak. He's a great offensive rebounder because he tracks the ball well and is able to shoot for gaps where he isn't well boxed out. He is athletic and has good hands so all that makes him great on that end.

    Unfortunately those tools are much less useful on the defensive glass where guys will do just that to him because he doesn't body them up well or at all.

    The best thing that happened to the comments sections on RR was that a bunch of the banned posters on here starting posting there...... That and they've really tried to clean out a lot of the really bad stuff that was in those threads. Some of it is still terrible but it's better overall than it was a couple years ago.

    We don't talk enough about just how athletic Jakob is. I had a pretty solid suspicion that his two-foot volleyball hops (we knew he was a very good one-foot leaper from some of his dunks) would start to display themselves as he got in better and better NBA-shape. Now we're seeing impressive displays on a nightly basis, with some of his blocks and dunks being downright filthy.




    This is just a vid I found of the warmup routine he and Pascal go through:


    The scary thing is he's still got a ways to go in terms of strength and the explosiveness that comes with it.

    I found Jacobs defense on Aldridge in the 2nd to be near perfect
    The Baltic Beast is unstoppable!

    I also think that the fact that Delon and Jak played in college cant be discounted. They have years of chemistry.
