    Let's give the big fella some love.


    For me, he was our best player in the summer league. Definitely would've voted him for Team MVP. Looked like a man against boys. Brought it on both ends of the floor, attacked the boards, stayed consistent, played within himself, and played more mistake free basketball than anyone else on the roster.

    If only we still had Gasol around, this would have been perfect

    Black has several things to work on this offseason, but primarily I'd like him to work on his height.

    I love Tarik, he's a rock solid role player.

    He's a workhorse with great strength, good athleticism, and a constant motor. He doesn't try to do things he's not capable of and he's not afraid to give a hard foul. I mean what's not to love?

    Tarik is a solid role player. Not starter quality player but a very nice to have backup big.

    Very intelligent too. I like him, he seems to be the new generation Kupchak.

    Agreed. Franco was one of the strongest pound for pound bodybuilders ever.
