    Bouknight Draft Watch

    Agreed. Looks solid, not bad at all but nothing sticks out. The athletic measurements are going to be wuere he can stick out vs some other guys... Idk about his lateral speed, but his vert has gotta be excellent

    He knows Bouk or the family somehow.

    You know when they test vertical? I'm putting my money on 43" max with a surprisingly high standing vert... he got UP for some offensive boards with no step up at all this year

    Bouknight Draft Watch

    Great to hear he had a + wingspan. He's no JLamb but it isn't going to hurt him much. Maybe a neutral since it' about where other guys are, slightly longer than a few. Standing reach is substally lower than other 6'5 guys in the league. That might hurt him in some GMs eyes that are big on...

    2022 Recruiting: Alex Karaban

    Hurley is way worse than KO about the whining. He also won games after his first two seasons, so I don't really care.

    Akok article from The Day

    I think you're forgetting who Akok was as a player. Does have Akok have that potential? Yes. But he wasn't there pre-injury or even close to it. He was a mediocre scorer at all levels and certainly does not have a post up game. Way too small that season. He averaged 5.8 points per game. 26%...

    21/22 starting lineup

    What you're looking for is "coaching malpractice". He deserves a fine for thst SJU game. Learned his lesson though. It was a turning point.

    Where you seeing that? All I see is a guestimated 7' somewhere... but that's obviously meaningless.

    OT: Brad Stevens Resigns and becomes GM/Ainge Resigning - Potential New Cs HC?

    Udoka is approaching the top of my list the more I read.

    OT: Brad Stevens Resigns and becomes GM/Ainge Resigning - Potential New Cs HC?

    Cassell would be my preference out of them all. The tweet is missing one name (since 4 were mentioned above)... I would guess it's him.

    OT: Brad Stevens Resigns and becomes GM/Ainge Resigning - Potential New Cs HC?

    I really would prefer someone other than Billups. Sure, he's famous... but he's been an assistant coach for ONE YEAR. I just can't trust a guy with that resume to lead a team to the finals like Boston wants. I like both Udoka and Ham.

    Bouknight Draft Watch

    He's enough of a sure-fire lottery pick that I'd guess he wouldn't be going unless he and his coaches in Miami think it will help his stock. I can't imagine he's going into this not already knowing his vertical, wingspan and all that.

    2022 Recruiting: Denver Anglin visit

    Someone posted a tweet a while back that he'll be in the 50-60 range the next time they update rankings after the summer. Not sure how true that is though. I think a lot of it is just once you get stuck into that 100-150 range, it's hard to move up. Guys that stunk it up this summer might move...

    YES. It has been on the tip of my tongue for weeks. The Bazz comps are dumb. Great call

    Former UConn strength coach Alosi alleges refusal to violate COVID guidelines led to his ouster (AP/Patrick Eaton-Robb)

    I'd agree with you if Alosi hadn't literally posted that masks were a hoax, what, 3 weeks ago?

    He shot much better pre-injury. I'm sure that's a big factor here too. Also he's not just shooting open 3s in practice. He's drilling vs some really talented players... Miami is where half the NBA goes in the summer

    OT: Brad Stevens Resigns and becomes GM/Ainge Resigning - Potential New Cs HC?

    No inside info here, but I just have a feeling Kemba has one more year in Boston. Maybe they try to develop Pritchard into that bigger point guard this year, and try to use Kemba this year while protecting his knee to maximize his value going forward.

    OT: Brad Stevens Resigns and becomes GM/Ainge Resigning - Potential New Cs HC?

    Yup. Also like that he has the clout to hold the talented young guys accountable. Sometimes Smart and Tatum (and others) need a reality check. We're past the let the young guys play phase with Brad. It's time to win

    OT: Brad Stevens Resigns and becomes GM/Ainge Resigning - Potential New Cs HC?

    YES. He is the new runaway candidate. He's only 61 so I doubt he's leaving the profession for good. He still has 5 or 6 years in his tanks minimum. He's the coach that can get this group to the finals.

    Former UConn strength coach Alosi alleges refusal to violate COVID guidelines led to his ouster (AP/Patrick Eaton-Robb)

    Yeah, I had to read the title 3x to make sure I had this right. The dude is a mask (and many other types of) conspiracy theorist. There's simply no way this is true. If anything, I'd be more inclined to think he was fired for refusing TO comply with the guidelines. Thank god we got rid of him...

    Mike Anthony: A day with UConn's Dan Hurley: The basketball coach starts with meditation. It's 'all gas, no brakes' from there.

    Andre, Whaley and Johnson together are going to brutalize the other groups defensively. They're not going to be able to score at all on the other end, but whatever. Most of our drills are "defense wins" drills anyways. I like that he has RJ and Andre together--that seems purposeful. Andre...

    Akok article from The Day

    A frontcourt of those 3 would be brutal offensivsly. None is a proven shooter as it stands. If 1 or 2 can develop a shot (or Rese)... changes us bigtime. We're really going to need one of them to improve their shot to reach our potential

    2022 Recruiting: JJ Starling

    No. He just does things with different hands. Dunks, dribbles, and passes left. Shoots and layups right. He isn't doing things equally well with both hands... his left hand dominance with the dribble and pass is probably his biggest weakness. He's a pretty awful passer.

    Some full games for those interested. He's #1. I really hope we can real him or Williams in--both are brilliant CGs in completely different ways. And both can SHOOT. Epps and Anglin seem to be the other 2 being recruited for this spot, and both of them are even better shooters. Love our...

    Surprised by this. Basically every one of these four combo-guards we're after are electric players with a good shot. Any one of them will be a huge addition.
