    Player First Looks

    This actually means a lot to me to hear this for a couple reasons. 1. Anytime a college dude can go shoot around playing pick up, like Palmer, and hit at the clip you’re talking about, that’s a really good thing. Means they have natural skill and when you take the pressure of those guys, it’s almost not even fun to play with. 2. When I went to UNL, it was some of the worst Doc teams. There’d be multiple times when me and some buddies would play pick-up with and against players on the team.... and I wasn’t sure how we would win a game during the season. There were some really bad players on those teams.

    “If he would have just let me pla my game then be a robot” Coulda started and stopped there and I would have known what he was talking about.

    Danny Nee's Old Hang-out (one of them, anyway)

    I’m not defending Barry’s by any means, but it sure seems like someone has it out for them or they’ve had a case of bad luck frequently. I went to UNL, Barry’s certainly isn’t the only place overserving their patrons. However, seems to be one of the few that gets caught.

    Summer workouts

    That’s specifically what this board is for. But I’m on record saying that if we have a great year (NCAA tourney win), I’d give up like the next 3 as “who cares.” I want a tourney win so bad.......

    My god.... sounds like a bitter man who’s preparing to be let go. Dude - the fans pack your arena every single night to support you and your team. And you’ve gone .500 and haven’t won a tourney game or anything of note. Chill with the chicken little crap. edit: I was just reading the comments from the article. Very misleading article, sort of sensationalized the tone of the actual interview. My apologies. I will leave my OP up to confirm my lack of intelligence.

    Amir Harris is N

    Big time raw enough that he needs to hang around and develop, but long, athletic, and coordinated enough that it’s all there.

    OT: Biographies

    So, as a teacher in an inner-city area, might I recommend that your friend looks for fiction books that have protagonists that are people of color? In other words, not just sports books. It can be very beneficial to read books where they are able to more closely associate with the main character, on things that touch issues they are going through or can relate to. There's a lot of research on this and it's pretty interesting, but sad (because of lack of options) topic. Most books that African American students are given to fulfill some kind of "see, we're giving you books about other African Americans," quota, are all biographies about athletes, civil rights leaders, or time pieces on slavery. There's more and better options out there for reading. And before anyone gets upset - I very much respect and love what your friends have done, and are looking to do. Good on them. I am only offering an alternative suggestion, with zero judgement. I just have a lot of experience and knowledge of this area and its issues.

    Collier, Sadler or Miles

    I think you guys are forgetting how $$$ Sadler was on some BOBs in late-game situations. He also had some great sets for lay-ups - specifically one for Diaz - in late-game situations.

    My perception

    What kind of stinks is asking “what if we just got lucky on selection Sunday?” And maybe we’re in the NCAA tournament, win or lose a game, I bet everyone’s pretty content right now.
