    Really I guess it should be new to the NBA Gators as Calathes is at least long gone from UF. Here is the article:

    Great to see the Gators doing well (or at least getting a chance) in the NBA!

    Caught Murphy (on the NBA channel) a couple of days ago playing at the end of a game where he snagged an offensive rebound, spun to his right, and put the follow up in softly off the glass, as we saw him do many times for the Gators :grin: That's the only shot I saw him take. On the few other possessions I saw, he was doing a lot of spotting up for three (ala Bonner), but no one found him for the shot. Didn't realize he was struggling with his shot.

    I've been looking for Memphis to see how Calathes looks, but my timing must be bad.

    Saw the Heat briefly too at the end of a game where LeBron didn't play. I was most interested in seeing if the big oft-injured fella from Ohio State (dang my memory!) was playing - or even on the bench - but no luck. Has anyone seen him playing (if he's even active)?

    Yep. Thanks.

    Looks like his knee is still giving him trouble.

    Beal is going to be an all-star by next year IMO. He's lighting up the pre-season and is much more confident and aggressive than last year. He's already the go-to scorer for the Wiz
