Looks like he's gone from 2 to 3 chainz in the offseason

 

I was racking my brain thinking of how I was going to work the 3 chainz into a pithy comment here and you did it better than I ever could have...good job!

Anybody know what Miles does with his extra scholarships? Does he give temporary one year scholarship to walkons or what?

 

I would put Tanner on one for the year and maybe put Laws on for the first semester (so we have one open for a mid year transfer again)

One thing I'll say about the fellas this off-season is they sure do look the part of legit college hoops players!

 

 

...also, it looks like Zay must have grown at least 4 inches in the last few months...he's at least as tall as Jordy now!  /s

I know camera angles can be deceiving and all, but Coach Mo only looks short when standing next to these guys.  He's actually above average, 6'2" or so.  Evan Taylor is listed on the roster at 6'5" and I believe he's a legit 6'5".  If so, Isaiah might be pushing 6'9" or 6'10" judging by that picture.  He's clearly quite a bit taller than Evan.  And those arms look like he's been adding some muscle in the off-season as well.

What we know...

 

Jordy went from 2 Chainz to 3 Chainz.

 

Zay is now approximately eight feet tall

 

ET went to the CWS this summer

 

Okeke is an Emirates guy

 

Oh, and Zay is also a futbol fan

Yeah...Real Madrid.  Not sure how I feel about that...at least it's not Barca.

 

Yeah those two teams are like saying you like the Yankees and Cubs.   Although  I do like the Baca jersey.

 

But my favorite jersey right now is  Borussia Dortmund.  The yellow with the grey stripes is sweet.

Yep, Dortmund has sweet kits for sure.  Normally Yellow and Black kinda makes me puke (Colorado, Iowa) but Dortmund looks nice.

For those hoping beyond hope we can ditch Miles and replace him with Hoiberg at the end of the year:

 

 

In summary, if coaching in the NBA doesn't work out for Fred it's very likely that coaching won't be in his future, period.

So....40/60 he's coaching here next year?

Just now, Dean Smith said:

On the field, Leo Messi is everything right with sports. The best player in the world and the best teammate. 

 

Not that great at paying his taxes though.  Also, quitting on his national team after Copa America last summer isn't a great look for him.

 

One can argue that CR7 has passed him by too as far as best in the world is concerned.
