    "If he can improve his rim-protection (just .4 blocks in 21 minutes per game) and position himself just a split second quicker, he has the potential to be an above average defender. Along with those physical traits, just playing in the Summer League and D-League is the best way for him to improve on defense by getting more reps.

    After averaging an impressive 17.8 points and 9.4 rebounds (4.4 offensive) per game on 61% from the field, it would seem that Shevon Thompson has a legitimate chance to get a call-up next season. That call-up would come if Thompson can refine his post-game, continue to expand the jump shot to 15 feet and learn how to rotate and play defense. Think of how many years everyone else has been playing this sport as opposed to Thompson. As a wise man once said, 'The ceiling is the roof' for this guy. The call isn’t as far off as some may think."

    If he makes it onto an actual NBA bench it will be an absolutely incredible accomplishment (not that what he has achieved so far is not). If this happens, I really hope he is able to play in a game at the Verizon center and we can get a large group out there. Maybe the AD would take some initiative and purchase a block of tickets? Also, he could be paired up with Muscala.

    While I am taking a chance correcting Pablo, Mark Davis can't be right.

    Brian Miller played for Mason from 1984-88, and he graduated from Mount Vernon High School. I would have thought there was a player from Fairfax earlier than Miller, but it certainly can't be Davis.

    I think you have a different definition of the word "last".

    You know what, you are exactly right. For whatever reason, I read first. Ugh. I knew correcting Pablo could only end badly.

    It means his injury won't allow him to play. My question is at the bottom, what does #securedthebag mean?

    Something to do with money, I think.
