Massive Earl Clark article on ESPN.com

Check out this ESPN.com article about Earl Clark.  It's huge!  And I was really impressed by the depth of their analysis:

Even though I've watched Earl intensely for the past three years, this article still pointed out details that I hadn't thought about before.  And even though I frequently found myself frustrated by E5 in college, this article left me with much warmer feelings toward him.  Here are some quotes:

"Is it possible that indictment #1 (Earl Clark doesn't look like he's trying) is directly related to indictment #2 (Earl Clark doesn't know what kind of player he is)? Is it a coincidence that guys who are classified as "versatile big men” are often regarded as flighty?..."

"Watching Clark at moments like these evokes memories of Lamar Odom's early days with the Los Angeles Clippers. Odom came to the pro game with a vast array of skills, almost none of which were wholly NBA-ready... It took Odom a couple of seasons to summon a level of effort he'd never before had to apply on the basketball court."

Here's hoping that he keeps developing into a Lamar Odom-type forward in the NBA.  And great job by the guys at TrueHoop.
