First guy looks like Kevin Mickens, second Jason Miskiri.
Wow. Those guys look heavy. None of them could touch that ball at his current height.
Who's that guy on the far right? LeBra James?
That's charles makings, walk-on
RHP Zach Mort was selected by the Cubs in the 8th round of the MLB draft.
RHP Bryce Nightengale has been selected by the A's in the 16th round.
Good for them. Being drafted in baseball has to be such a weird feeling. Like, you've made it to the pro's which has probably been a life dream. But you're going to make like 20k a year and your first couple minor league teams are probably in some backwater small town.
Maybe not the best thread for this, but in terms of where the CAA is, it looks like DC for a few years.
Jeez, I guess the CAA just equates shitty neighborhoods with good basketball. I mean, as bad as downtown Richmond was, I would walk around there before walking around MLK/Malcolm X in SE in between tourney games. Though I do have a healthy respect for Barry Farm.
Do fans even stay in that area for the tourney when it happens? Hope they're developing the shit out of it at least.
If this is going to be their new "locale" - they should just go back to Richmond.
The guy between Jai and Charles is Richard Tynes, I believe.
Those guys are struggling if they don't get a big bonus. I've read their pay doesn't even come out to minimum wage with the hours they put in. You'd think an owner could afford to sell a fifth house and help them out a little bit.
Gabe Norwood was one of 3 players remaining after bench clearing brawl between Austrualia and Phillipines in a World Cup Qualifier resulted in 9 players for the Phillipines being ejected. He then quickly (smartly?) fouled out: http://www.espn.com/olympics/basket...-center-thon-maker-brawl-fiba-qualifying-game
Shevon Thompson is playing in the NBA summer league with the Raptors, can watch the first game Friday at 3:30pm on ESPNU, other games are on NBAtv: https://gomason.com/news/2018/7/5/m...for-toronto-raptors-in-nba-summer-league.aspx
His stats from Thursday. (16 minutes, 8 points, 4 rebounds, 4 fouls)
Toronto's next game is Sunday at 3 PM on NBATV.
The Lakers drafted Isaac Bonga in the 2nd round and signed him to a deal yesterday. Saw his twitter background and thought that guy looks a lot like Mike Morrison. It is, they were teammates in Germany.
10 points, 6 rebounds for Shevon yesterday in the loss to Minnesota in 17 minutes of play (summer league plays four 10 minute quarters).
Clip of a guy taking a Ginobili-esque flop from a Thompson "elbow."
I forgot just how large of a human Shevon is. Man, there's no denying he has NBA size.
Did he get a flagrant for that? His elbows were in and he kept them at chest level. It doesn't look like he actually made contact.
Top grad Transfers
16. Eric Lockett Wing, NC State
2017-18 stats: 14.3 ppg, 6.5 rpg, 3.1 apg, 29% 3pt at Florida International
Lockett’s recruitment flew way under the radar as there was no news on which teams he was even considering until he ultimately chose NC State. Lockett will fit perfectly in Keatts’ style of play as he can play anywhere from 2-4. He will probably be the team’s sixth man, but his versatility and talent level will make it hard to keep him on the bench. Do not be surprised if Lockett gets more than 20 mpg.
11. Trey Porter C, Nevada
2017-18 stats: 13.2 ppg, 6.2 rpg, 1.3 bpg, 59% fg at Old Dominion
Nevada grabbed multiple impact players this offseason and Porter might be the most overlooked of the bunch. The former Old Dominion big is a strong defender and a capable scorer from mid range and in. Even though 5-star freshman Jordan Brown has gotten most of the attention, I’d expect Porter to start over him, at least at the start of the season. Nevada’s depth could hurt Porter’s production and reduce his playing time, but he will definitely be a standout.
Luke Hancock is suing the NCAA.
Former Louisville players file suit against NCAA over vacation of 2013 national title
LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- A group of former Louisville men's basketball players have filed a lawsuit against the NCAA over the organization's vacation of the Cardinals' 2013 national championship and 2012 Final Four.
John Morgan, one of several attorneys representing former Cardinals captain Luke Hancock, the 2013 Final Four Most Outstanding Player, and four teammates from that title team, said a lawsuit had been filed and described the NCAA as "a morally bankrupt organization" that exploits student-athletes during a Wednesday news conference
