Josh Lomers was a big old boy. He probably still is, but the past tense is used to denote the fact that Lomers has now retired from basketball. His substantial size was his main, if not only, true asset, as described in more depth below; the following video serves to make light of that, as well as demonstrate Lomers's glaring lack of acting ability.

   Really Overdue 2010 D-League Draft Review
2010-11-15

45th: - Tulsa 66ers - Josh Lomers, Baylor

Lomers just graduated from Baylor, and played for the Spurs in summer league, at which time I wrote this about him:

Lomers just graduated from Baylor, where he was the starting centre. In his senior season he averaged 6.6ppg, 3.7rpg and 1.1bpg, shooting 70% from the field and 71% from the foul line. His offense consists solely of the easy layup and the simple yet effective art of standing still and letting people run into him (i.e. screening).

That, sadly, is about it. Lomers is a big old boy, standing about 7 feet and 280, with hair you could stitch a tapestry from (not pictured), but he's not a talent. He is really really really slow, clumsy, even less athletic than
Bryan Davis (who routinely owned him in Big 12 play), and whatever the opposite of fluid is when used in a basketball sense. He's somehow still a good shotblocker in spite of his inability to jump over invisible dustmites, yet he doesn't score, rebound, dribble, catch, shoot, run without falling over, or do much of anything other than stand in the middle and hit you if you come near him. And in the NBA, that's just going to lead to a lot of posters.


He then proceeded to post summer league numbers of 21 minutes, 0 points, 2 rebounds, 0 blocks, 5 turnovers and 11 fouls. Lomers later went to Estonia to tryout with BC Kalev/Cramo, but was unsuccessful.

Josh Lomers

Boy is it ever unexpected that an NBA website would get the opportunity to write about Josh Lomers. But it's not unwelcome.

Lomers just graduated from Baylor, where he was the starting centre. In his senior season he averaged 6.6ppg, 3.7rpg and 1.1bpg, shooting 70% from the field and 71% from the foul line. His offense consists solely of the easy layup and the simple yet effective art of standing still and letting people run into him (i.e. screening).

That, sadly, is about it. Lomers is a big old boy, standing about 7 feet and 280, with hair you could stitch a tapestry from (not pictured), but he's not a talent.

So you can see why I wasn't expecting to see him here.
