Sounds like it's going to be a REAL long season this year.
Not good that McKnight and Railey are super skinny. I thought they would be thicker?
Oh well... I guess I was starting to get unrealistic expectations already on guys like McKnight, Railey, Godfrey, etc. We will need contributions from them. I thought we might get lucky and have some diamonds in the rough, but it sounds like they will need some developing.
Good info though.... thanks!
Ejim is Big 12 ready now, just needs to work on his passing skills. He had some monster dunks in the second half.
How did Godfrey play? And did Bubu tear it up again tonight?
I did not see Bubu play tonight, but I have seen him play quite a few times in the CCL. He is a fun player to watch. Unfortunately he is just small, height and width. You never know, sometimes someone like that can still end up being a great player. I will keep my fingers crossed. He seems like a great guy.
Thompson I guess you are correct about Railey not being super thin. I shouldn't have said he was "very thin." I definitely think he needs to add muscle and some more weight if he wants to contribute this year, but I shouldn't have said he was so thin.
I was a little disappointed that Anderson and Babb weren't there. I was excited to see them play.
Railey was much thicker than I anticipated. That being said, I did not see much that led me to believe he would help a ton this upcoming year. It also looked like every joint / muscle in his body was sore. It took him about 2 minutes to walk the length of the floor when he first got there. So, maybe his body just isn't used to all the lifting / conditioning he is doing now.
I am glad #11 was Booker. He looks like he could be a solid post scoring option with a year to work on his moves.
I was bummed by Godfrey and McKnight. After KG's statements, I had hoped at least one of them would be able to contribute some this year at the 4-5 positions. My expectations for such are not as high as they once were. Admittedly, both saw limited PT, and these leagues are not designed to showcase post play. However, I definitely left less excited about this year than when I arrived.
I sure hope you are right as I agree with Thompson that he was trying to play small forward with NO interest in posting up and very little interest in rebounding.
