AmMo has some post moves but not consistently. My thinking is that Larry needs to at least try to back May into the post and see what happens. If we could get a big man to show some back to the basket skills it would open things up a whole lot for the team imo.
It seems teams don't use the back to the basket skills of their players enough nowadays. Maybe I am just a bit obsessed with this way of thinking but I just find that having a quality low post scorer makes the rest of the team better. Tim Duncan is a great low post guy and because of that threat the Spurs are more versatile. We need a current player to step up in that way and if that is not possible we need a new player. If Okafor would learn to be a threat in the low post it would lessen our need for another 4 or 5.
My thinking is that Okafor is more of a 4 than a 5. A true 5 is better around the basket and that just is not Okafor. Actually I find that despite consistent double doubles EmOk is a bit overrated. The fact that he has virtually no outside shot says to me that he is at times a liability. Still Okafor's contribution to the team is important. I just wish he was bit more versatile. I hope a few expendable players step up and show some skills so their trade value goes up and we can get a solid 4 or 5 to be of assistance to the Bobcats.
