Would anyone here care to comment on Brian Cook? It seems that the Nuggets are going to sign him given their injury to Kenyon Martin. I am curious to hear what those who actually have watched him play feel about him.
The Nugs are the victim of a ill-conceived 8 man rotation which is grinding their bigs to a pulp. If the Nugs had avoided this, they would likely be the strongest challenger to the Lakers. I think the Mavs may have passed them up in that department as of now, and their cakewalk schedule will likely ensure a 2 seed. But it still seems that Dallas is more intimidated by the Lakers, where the Nugs show some guts and aren't afraid.
But now, with Martin sidelined for who knows how long, they're going to sign Cook to fill the void (the plan apparently is to use Cook and Johan "French Tickler" Petro to fill the void, which seems half assed and desperate to me).
I've heard Cook described as a respectable stretch forward, and also as a chemistry killer. What does Laker nation think?
Thanks in advance for your input.
