    I'm not sure - there are camps going on and someone sent it to me, but I'm not sure if these practices are supposed to be "closed" or what...

    Saw a clip from practice this morning. Kofi looking tough. Giorgi will be glad once it's someone else's turn to guard him.

    Kofi has to take it easy; they don't want to be replacing rims every single practice.

    I think everyone was. Now, if the staff finds another "Giorgi" this quickly in Kouma? There might be something to it...

    That person is spot on - if referring to Illinois fans who started watching after about 2008. They have "no clue" how good we were and for how long. Yes, it's fading in the rear view mirror, but to imply fans have no clue when expecting better than sub-500 performance is insulting. Meanwhile...

    Only coaching regime I had ties to, and almost every time I was told something it didn't come true. I think those guys were strung along consistently themselves, imo, and I felt for them. Happy to be out of the loop now :)

    I agree, because one thing he should be able to do right out of the gate is rebound. He'll have to adjust to the college game for sure. But on the other hand, opponents are going to have problems dealing with him. He's big and mobile. And I don't think he starts over Giorgi; he starts with him.

    Get Kofi to drop ~20lbs, increase his athleticism a little in the process; there's a place for him. Saying this without ever seeing him play a college game, but it's just a projection. You don't have to be Kevin Durant; Andre Drummond seems more of a reasonable aspiration.
