Cacok started a bit slow but picked up his game after about 7-8 minutes.

Cacok didn't have his best game by any means but he saw a lot of minutes. Plenty of more games left for him to show out. For what it's worth everyone on his team played sloppy and I can't say anyone stood out to me. The Lakers take on the Warriors tonight at 9 pm on ESPN2.

His limited offensive capabilities really stand out in this format. Everyone is looking to impress, so there's a lot of one on one offense. He's more of a pick and roll, post player and nobody is coached to get him the ball. If he could develop the ability to dribble/drive to the basket his game would look completely different.

You ain't kidding. And the announcers can't stop talking about him. I think his teammates are getting a feel for his game now and are shoveling him the ball on the pick and roll. Wait until they start tossing up some alley oops!

Watching Cacok tonight it's the first time i've really considered he could find a place in the NBA. His presence allows other players to focus on what they do best while DC hits the board hard, puts in the bucket if he gets near the basket, and just hustles all around.

16 points and 12 boards - typical night for DC.

Never doubted Cacok, only the NBA’s willingness to accept a player with his particular skillset.

Glad to see him showcasing what he can do.

This.

Ain't no doubters in Seahawk Nation when it comes to DC. He needs to keep doing what he does best and somebody will pick him up. If he could just develop the ability to face up, drive to the basket and finish, he'd land in the NBA immediately.

With the way the NBA is played today, so many just jacking shots, someone that is always in the right position to rebound has a spot IMO. He's that guy. No doubt though like you said if his offensive game got better it would be a no brainer.

I liked it when the announcer said Cacok just might be the best player on the floor.

I think he was the best all around player on the court last night. Filled the box score, and man has his perimeter defense improved in the last few months. That's gonna be key with all the switching that happens in the NBA.

RE: DC12- LA Lakers Summer League
I just can't understand why we didn't pick 'n' roll with Cacok his final 2 seasons here. Its his bread and butter, and other than his rebounding, the skill that makes him the most appealing at the next level.
